In this week’s royal news update, a royal expert reveals that Prince William is angered by the fact that Kate Middleton has been dragged into the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s drama.

Princess Charlene has opted to miss out to stay home and rest, missing out on attending Monaco’s National Day with Prince Albert. This follows months of struggling with an ear, nose and throat infection in South Africa.

Princess Charlene will not be attending Monaco’s National Day

The Princely Palace announced on Tuesday that Princess Charlene would not be attending Monaco’s National Day with her husband, Prince Albert.

Although the princess was recently declared fit to travel back home to Monaco to be with her family after spending just over six months in South Africa due to an ear, nose and throat infection, Charlene and Albert decided it would be best for her to rest and fully recover.

“The royal couple decided that a period of calm and rest is necessary to ensure the very best recovery for Princess Charlene’s health,” said the Princely Palace in a statement.

Prince William ‘fumes’ as Kate Middleton gets dragged into Harry and Meghan feud

Prince William is reportedly angered by the fact that his wife Kate Middleton has been dragged into Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s drama.

Royal expert Kate Nicholl made this revelation in a Channel 5 documentary titled William and Harry: Princes at War?

“He was very, very cross that Kate, who had up until then been very much peripheral in this fraternal rift, had been pulled in. There is never smoke without fire. How true these stories are, possibly you take some of them with a big pinch of salt.

“I certainly had been told by very reliable sources that the girls weren’t the best of friends, weren’t as close as perhaps they might have been. But actually the real issue wasn’t between Meghan and Kate, it was between William and Harry,” said Nicholl.

Meghan and Harry’s son loves the classic childhood song

Many parents pride themselves in teaching their children popular childhood songs and nursery rhymes, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are no different.

The couple recently revealed that their two-year-old son Archie’s favourite children’s bop is the famous and popular Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes song.

During Meghan and Harry’s visit to the Task Force Liberty on Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey, they walked into a classroom of kids who were learning to speak English.

The educators had been teaching the children the song, and the royal couple joined in and led the class, before telling everyone that the song was Archie’s favourite.

Anti-Meghan Twitter campaign may be an inside job

New York Magazine recently took to social media to reveal that a report was released which shows that the accounts which fuelled harassment and hate against Meghan and Harry were not bots, but highly coordinated troll accounts.

“Last month a report was released that detailed the way in which attacks made by Twitter accounts had fueled harassment and hate aimed at Meghan, the duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry, the duke of Sussex.

“It was discovered that these troll accounts were not bots, just highly coordinated: 83 accounts, with a potential reach of 17 million users, were responsible for 70% of the negative and hateful content generated about the couple,” said New York Magazine in their Instagram post.

Charles called Queen Elizabeth II to ensure that she is following doctors’ orders

Prince Charles recently jetted off on his royal tour to Jordan to complete some royal duties and represent his mother, who was asked to take a break from the heavy royal duties at Buckingham Palace, following her medical scare.

Royal sources have revealed that Charles made a phone call to the queen before his flight to ask how she was feeling after she sprained her back and was forced to pull out of the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph.

“The Prince of Wales made sure to check in with the queen ahead of his departure and was completely reassured of her current condition by Her Majesty herself. The queen is resting at Windsor Castle and will continue to do so until she is back to full health,” said a royal source.
