British Royal Family News suggests that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might not only be distancing themselves away from Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle Sr., but they might also be doing the same with Harry’s father, Prince Harry, too.
As a matter of fact, one royal expert suggests that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might be ‘airbrushing’ their fathers out of the picture after failing to mention them in a poignant letter on their new Archewell web site. Here’s what you need to know.
British Royal Family News: Prince Harry And Meghan Markle ‘Airbrushing’ Their Fathers Out Of Their Lives?
Harry and Meghan published a letter for their fans on their new site along with pictures of Harry with his mother, Princess Diana, and Meghan with her mother, Doria Ragland. The letter began: “I am my mother’s son. And I am my son’s mother.” Later in the piece, they said: “We have experienced compassion and kindness from our mothers and strangers alike.”
While everyone knows that Meghan is estranged from her father, many royal experts were surprised to see that Prince Charles was totally omitted from the letter. Pod Save the Queen hosts Ann Gripper and Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers shared their thoughts on the matter.
Ann said, “The thing that immediately struck me is that it was kind of airbrushing the men out of the picture a little bit somehow. It’s a bit like ‘Ooh, ouch’. If I was Charles I think I would probably feel quite hurt. Not even the set up at the beginning, but saying ‘we’ve experienced compassion from our mothers and strangers alike’, it’s almost like mothers are the only people who can give compassion. And when you’re putting the focus on being ‘our son’s mother’, what is the role of the son’s father?”
Myers added that he believes it was hurtful to see Prince Charles sidelined like this. He said, “They’re putting this up themselves, it’s their words so they should be micro-analyzed and anyone would be foolish to think it wouldn’t be. Maybe the fact that Prince Charles has been airbrushed from it is potentially a little bit hurtful. But I can see the direction it’s going in and certainly the imagery used of that picture of Harry on Diana’s shoulders. It almost just felt as though they couldn’t mention Charles because then they’d have to mention Thomas and that just seems slightly ridiculous. Everybody knows that Meghan doesn’t have a relationship with her father and that’s her prerogative. t’s at such a low ebb, unfortunately, their relationship, that then Charles doesn’t get a look-in.”
