How Meghan and Kate could help Charles when he becomes king?


The Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge has been credited with helping to transform the image of the British royal family. 

However, the ways of both the royals are different.

Prince Harry’s new royal bride, Meghan Markle has been hailed as a breath of fresh air for the British monarchy. Her popularity may help her father-in-law, Prince Charles when he comes to take the throne. 

Only the young royals can make a difference.

Leading Royal expert, Phil Dampier believes the royal ‘fab four’ of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan will help the public tolerate the Prince of Wales, Charles as King.

Prince Charles, who turned 70 this year, is the longest serving heir-apparent to the crown in the history of UK. Referring to the public Mr Dampier, told The Royal UK:-

“With the younger royals coming up behind, you can see the future mapped out. So, I think they’re more than happy to tolerate Charles for the relatively short period he’s going to be king”.

“There’s a hard-core of people who don’t like Prince Charles. And I don’t think anything’s going to change their mind. But, I think most people respect him and do appreciate that he’s been handed an extremely difficult talk”.

Mr Dampier claimed Prince Charles is now happy with his situation.

He said: “There’s no doubt in my mind that Charles is much happier and more contented now than he ever has been. 10-20 years ago I think he was extremely impatient and frustrated by his role”.

“But, marrying Camilla has definitely changed him and mellowed him. Well, he now just accepts that he’s going to have to wait until whenever it is and is fairly relaxed about that”.

Mr Dampier has travelled to more than 50 countries while reporting on the royals. He has also appeared on UK and international TV. 

Mr Dampier added:-

“You know, I think that with the popularity of the young royals, it wouldn’t surprise me if and when Her Majesty, countries like Canada and New Zealand actually keep the monarchy”.

“I think the British monarchy is so popular now. And there’s such a lot of interest in the younger royals, that I can easily see that they would vote to keep them”.
