If it’s such an exciting time for Prince Charles, why is he so scared?
When Kensington Palace broke the news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were officially expecting their first child, their international fanbase was thrilled with the news!
The couple, who wed in May of 2018, had only been married for less than 6 months at the time of their pregnancy announcement. The news wasn’t a total surprise, however, has both Harry and Meghan had mentioned wanting to start their family sooner than later. Not only that, but Meghan opted wore clothes that left her fans in major suspicion.
When the news finally broke, the couple were hours away from touching down in Sydney for their 16-day tour. They were met with thrilled fans and gifts for sweet Baby Sussex. Throughout their tour, Meghan would often be seen cradling her stomach- sending fans into massive overdrive with royal baby fever.
While Harry and Meghan's fans were thrilled at her news, very little word from their family had been shared. The world couldn’t help but wonder how Harry and Meghan were being supported by their Royal family.
Finally, on November 5th, fans finally learned how those closest to Harry and Meghan felt about their upcoming bundle of joy. Prince Charles, Harry’s father, was touring Ghana when we first publicly acknowledged his son and daughter-in-law’s news. And while fans were thrilled to hear Prince Charles talk about how soon-to-be grandchild, they didn’t expect him to reveal what he had said…
While meeting with several government officials regarding pollution and the current state of our world, Prince Charles made his first mention of Harry and Meghan’s child. He said, “I am about to have another grandchild actually. I suspect quite a few of you may too have grandchildren or will do soon.”
He then added, “It does seem to me insanity if we are going to bequeath this completely polluted, damaged and destroyed world to them! All grandchildren deserve a better future.”
Prince Charles has been a conversationalist for several years and now that his family is growing, his concerns for a cleaner and safer world are even more important to him. This is likely something that many parents and grandparents think about, especially given the political climate in today’s world. We hope that future generations are with the resources they need and that the world will be better for them.
