King Charles is reportedly feeling ‘very overwhelmed’ with scandals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have embroiled him in over the years.
Royal author Christopher Andersen made this admission while speaking in an episode for Podcast Royal.
His claim has come just a day after Express UK’ s poll about King Charles’ popularity came out.
Mr Andersen beleives, “I think one mistake people make is to assume he [Charles] is going to be a placeholder for William — that he’s going to keep the throne warm as it were.”
“He’s going to be an activist and he’s going to leave his mark on history. He has waited so long for this moment. Edward VII waited 59 years, but Charles has waited 70 years.”
“I think he is going to take the bull by the horns in terms of streamlining the monarchy; he’s already talked about rethinking how the monarchy is funded if he can. I’m sure he is going to express his opinions in private to the Prime Minister every week.”
“But unfortunately, he may be overwhelmed by scandal. The key to his reign is winning the affection of his people, but that’s hard to do when you’ve got a rebel prince in Montecito constantly making headlines and embarrassing revelations.”
