King Charles is said to be “relieved” that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are not attending his 75th birthday celebrations, according to one Royal Family expert.
According to royal commentator Neal Sean, the Firm feels fine about Harry and Meghan’s absence from tomorrow’s celebrations.
King Charles got his birthday festivities started with other 75-year-olds today. The Prince’s Trust put together a tea dance at Highgrove, one of Charles’ residences.
Writing for Fox News about Harry and Meghan’s absence, Mr. Sean said: “Let’s be very clear, most senior members of the British monarchy are more than relieved by the news that the two former royals known as Harry and Meghan are simply not going to be returning for the birthday celebrations of his Majesty, The King.”
He added: “The simple fact is, this news was a problem, but more importantly, who needs victims at a family celebration?
“This is the dilemma that faces most of the senior members of the family: while His Majesty, the King, would very much like to reconcile with his son, this is a bigger issue.”
He also looked back at the past, saying: “Five years ago, King Charles could never have anticipated exactly how this historic birthday would’ve panned out. However, reaching such a birthday has made him realize, according to close sources, just how difficult life as a reigning monarch can be.”
Sean talks about how the King had wishful thinking, saying, “he had hoped his troublesome youngest son Prine Harry may have relented,” and he would return home for “such a landmark birthday.”
