Prince Charles always wanted a daughter, according to his late ex-wife Princess Diana. When Diana was pregnant with their second child, Charles was open with his hopes of it being a girl. Following the birth of baby #2 in September 1984, the Prince was reportedly “so disappointed” it was another boy and even expressed “mock dismay” over the baby’s red hair. Months later however, Charles gave an interview in which he bragged about how “extraordinarily good” the newest addition was.
Fast forward to today and the Prince of Wales has two sons, who have married two women that he adores.
Per former royal butler, Paul Burrell, once Kate Middleton becomes Queen, all will be required to curtsy to her, including sister-in-law Meghan Markle. This was one of the royal tidbits that were spilled in the one-hour TLC special, “Kate v. Meghan: Princesses at War?” Paul, who worked for the late Princess Diana, feels that this gesture of respect may be awkward for Meghan, who is an “independent woman whose views will be difficult to change.”
The former royal staffer also commented on the rumored feud saying “a lot of rumors about Kate and Meghan are manufactured to sell newspapers. It’s just too good a story.”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stopped by Bristol’s Empire Fighting Chance charity on Friday to speak with some of the kids in attendance. According to People Magazine, a 12-year-old got emotional while talking to Harry about losing his father. The Prince reportedly asked everyone to leave the room so he could have a one-on-one conversation with the young lad about the emotional turmoil of losing a parent. As everyone knows, Harry was a young boy when his mother Princess Diana died.
The young boxer later told reporters that he and the royal “had a chat for about 10 minutes” and the royal couple “were amazing people.”
Kate Middleton was spotted—alongside the Queen—looking very festive in a glittering custom dress at the annual holiday reception at Buckingham Palace. Along with the modest white gown, Kate donned a diamond bracelet and the gorgeous Lover’s Knot tiara, which belonged to Princess Diana.
If the reports of Prince William’s wife trying to out-style her new royal sister-in-law—Megan Markle—are true, she is definitely headed in the right direction.
Meghan Markle got a haircut and fans are wondering why they weren’t included in the decision. In the midst of being pregnant and her jam-packed November schedule, the Duchess got her locks trimmed; the new do was revealed at the Remembrance Day Sunday service last weekend. The mom-to-be may have picked up the idea of keeping the beauty decision a secret from something Prince Harry’s late mother used to do. Princess Diana was so scrutinized for every decision she made, that she would get her hair cut in discrete quarter-inch sections to avoid “being front-page news.”
Prince Charles may be the most pampered person ever. In a documentary “Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm,” the future King of England has everything done for him…EVERYTHING. According to Princess Diana’s former butler, Paul Burrell who was interviewed for the documentary, the pampered prince has his pajamas pressed every morning, his shoe laces pressed flat with an iron, and one inch of toothpaste is the exact amount that must be squeezed on his toothbrush. The 69-year-old probably even has someone assigned to wipe his Royal Derriere.
Kate Middleton paid tribute to Princess Diana at a state dinner on Tuesday night. The Duchess wore one of Diana’s tiaras—the Lover’s Knot—at the event she attended with Prince William. Kate, who has worn this tiara to other royal functions, added pearl earrings that also belonged to the late Princess Di. People reports that the Lover’s Knot tiara is over 100-years-old and belongs to Queen Elizabeth, but originally was made for Queen Mary in 1914. Diana was gifted the tiara when she married Prince Charles and returned the crown to the Queen when the two separated.
