Archie and Lillibet, the grandchildren of King Charles, have been separated from their grandfather for more than a year amid an ongoing family dispute. The strained relationship between King Charles, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle has resulted in limited interactions between them.
To stay updated on their lives, King Charles has adopted a discreet approach, which involves reading the Montecito Journal, a local newspaper in the Californian town where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex now reside. The family discord began when Prince Harry and Meghan decided to step back from their roles as senior members of the British royal family.
This decision has prevented Archie and Lillibet from seeing their grandfather for an extended period. Despite the physical distance, King Charles remains committed to keeping abreast of their activities and developments. Eileen White Read, in a letter to the editor, disclosed that the Montecito Journal‘s columnist Richard Mineards reported that England’s King Charles II is among the newspaper’s readers.
According to a report by Daily Express, Richard Mineards, a former royal correspondent from Fleet Street, contributes to the Montecito Journal and has become a reliable source of information and updates on Prince Harry and Meghan’s life in California. With his extensive network of sources, Mineards regularly offers insights into the couple’s life, allowing King Charles a glimpse into their world.
Although the extent of King Charles’s interest in the Montecito Journal remains speculative, it is evident that he is using this indirect method to stay informed about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The Montecito Journal has become a valuable source of local news and information for the community where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reside. This revelation adds an element of intrigue to the ongoing dynamics within the British royal family.
As time passes, the world watches with anticipation to see if there will be any reconciliation between Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and the rest of the royal family. Meanwhile, King Charles continues to employ this discreet tactic to stay informed about their lives, even from a distance.
