Prince Harry’s attack on the government upsets the palace
The attack on government by Prince Harry, at the end of his testimony statement in his case against Mirror Newspapers Group (MGN) for the phone hack, is “extremely difficult and inconvenient” for the monarchy, and he is constitutionally required to be “above politics,” the sources said.
At the end of his lengthy statement, Harry declared: “Our country is universally judged by the state of our press and our government, both of which I believe are at rock bottom.”
Talking to Sunday times About the comment, a royal source said: “The Palace will find that very difficult and uncomfortable, because you can never completely separate yourself from the institution and it will raise eyebrows on both sides of the Park – at Westminster too – not least because it was not essential to the substance of its case.”
But it only emphasizes its wisdom and importance [Elizabeth II’s] Decisions made at Sandringham [the family summit in January 2020]You can’t be half and half. Those decisions are now the royal family’s insurance — when one of its members continues to break with tradition, they can point out that he’s speaking for Harry Windsor, not as the Duke of Sussex, a working member of the royal family who represents the nation. Then there’s the deep irony of a member of the royal family talking about how countries are judged around the world, which is often done by and through the royal family. It shows a deep misunderstanding on his part.”
“The King brings Harry every time I see him. I don’t think we’ve ever gotten past it sad and confused, but there’s a little more frustration with his behavior, because it keeps going.“

Another source, described Sunday times’ flavor roya As someone who “knew Harry really well,” he says, “I think he’s been out in the California sun for a long time, hanging out with James Corden [the actor and TV host] And he lost all instincts about how to do this, how to act with caution, while being a member of the royal family. He’s lost the knack for what he can and can’t say and there’s no one around to say, “No, Harry, you can’t say that, take that part.” It is an embarrassment for him, and for Britain, that the Prince says, “We have a dirty government.”
Flacq says King Charles is growing increasingly resentful of Harry’s actions, with a source saying: “The King lifts Harry up every time I see him. I don’t think we’re over the sad and bewildered, but there’s more frustration with his behavior, because it continues.”
A former courtier told Nikah: “I think he seeks inner peace and that becomes the goal – he thinks if he can get the media to heel, he’ll cure that of his pain. Sadly, I don’t think he will. He’s still defending his mother.” Nothing will take this pain away.”
Don’t invite Harry
King Charles has not invited Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to the King’s Birthday Parade (aka Trooping of the Color) next weekend. the daily Mail reports that it would be “the first time in Harry’s life that he has not been welcomed into the official celebrations of the King’s birthday”, and particularly significant as this is the first such celebration of the King’s reign. “I’m afraid it’s a reflection of the state of relations at the moment,” a source told the newspaper.
Rehearsals for the event, the troops’ first since Elizabeth’s death, took place on Saturday and included Prince William on horseback. Warm conditions have caused many sporting guards to fall out of the bearskin.
Charles wanted to buy his granddaughter Lilibet a big gift for her second birthday, maybe even a custom-made little house, but Harry warned him to get something “less extravagant.” reports Yes! magazine.
A source told the publication that King Charles had his “adjutants look into custom-built cubby houses, similar to what the Queen and Princess Margaret had when they were girls.” However, the source added that the idea was liked by Harry who asked his dad to do something “less extravagant”.

Question Beatrice and Eugenie
Could the future King William bring back the Yorkists? The Daily Mail’s Richard Eden speculated this week that Prince Andrew’s two daughters – Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie – could return to their frontline royal duties under King Billy.
Aden said on a mail PodcastQueen Elizabeth had the Duke of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent, and Princess Alexandria, all of whom were carrying out and assisting their engagements. I’d like to see, in the future, Prince William get help from his cousins, like Eugenie and Beatrice. Perhaps in the future, when William is king, they may feel it is the right time to devote their lives to royal duties.”
The wonderful plane
Prince Harry may have left a special gift for an American Airlines flight attendant this week — a copy of his diary additional. the telegraph mentioned Holden Butter posted a photo of himself and the Duke to his Instagram Stories while on the plane, captioning the “Prince Traveler” photo with a crown emoji.
