King Charles tells friends he’s “not content” with Archie and Lilibet video calls – wants to be “present” in their lives

Even while he may not have spent as much time with his grandkids Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet as he would have liked, King Charles is determined to change that going forward.

The repercussions from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to quit the Royal Family and then expose all the flaws in it to the world has left their relationship with the British monarchy in a state of disarray, which is maybe not surprising.

As a result, the Sussexes don’t visit the UK very often, which means that Archie and Lilibet, their children, are growing up without the chance to develop enduring, love relationships with their British relatives.

Although there aren’t many visible signs of change in Harry and Meghan’s tense relationship with people like Prince William, Kate Middleton, King Charles, and Queen Camilla, at least one individual is anxious to find some light among all the darkness.

The Daily Mirror claims that King Charles has confided in pals that he’s not happy with only seeing Lilibet, 3, and Archie, 5, on sporadic video chats. The publication asserts that the queen has only met Lilibet once and Archie a few times.

It was revealed last week that Lilibet received a present in addition to the King’s birthday wishes when she turned three. There were also rumors that Charles had planned a more extravagant gift but would save it for after things had calmed down a little between the royal family and Harry and Meghan.

After receiving a shocking cancer diagnosis earlier this year, Charles has reduced his public appearances while receiving treatment. The King’s friends now assert that he wants to “make up for lost time” and is “keener than ever” to focus on his family.

Though he has had very few opportunities to meet Archie and Lilibet, Charles is thought to be a loving grandfather to his grandkids through his eldest son, Prince William.


Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis get along well with their grandfather, who is referred to as a “fantastic and enthusiastic grandpa,” in contrast to their cousins.

The King is utterly dedicated to being involved in each and every one of his grandchildren’s lives, an insider told the Mirror. Family is the most important thing to him, and no matter how his connection with his son develops, he will never be happy to occasionally see his grandchildren via video conference.

It’s unclear how Charles will bring up the topic with Harry and Meghan, especially given the Sussexes’ seeming insistence that they were wronged by the monarchy on multiple occasions when they were still members.

Harry and Meghan made the almost unheard-of decision to publicly express their difficulties after deciding to leave the royal life, first in a shocking interview with Oprah Winfrey and then through their honest Netflix series.

At last, Harry released his candid memoir, Spare, in which he addressed all of his complaints about his time spent as a working royal, without holding back.
