ROYAL REVELATIONS: CHARLES WON’T BE BOSSY KING + WEDDING SECRETS + FAB 4+ DELAYED THANK YOU’S

Kensington Palace is serving up sumptuous sides of gossip as Prince Charles prepares to celebrate his 70ths birthday on November 14.

MEDDLING MONARCH

For starters, Charles assures his future subjects (via a BBC documentary) that he will not be a "meddling" monarch when he becomes king; instead, he will follow in his mother’s footsteps and "operate within the constitutional parameters."

Charles has been criticized in the past for his strong political (usually liberal) stances. He says that will be behind him once he wears the crown: "I’m not that stupid. I do realize that it is a separate exercise being sovereign. So of course I understand entirely how that should operate."

BEHIND THE SCENES SCOOP

Plus, royal watchers are finding out more about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May wedding. Prior to the big day, Meghan’s father Thomas Markle Sr. reneged on his offer to walk her down the aisle after a series of humiliating scandals. (He claimed he was ill; no one believed him).

Apparently, instead of driving a wedge between Meghan and the royals, the snafu endeared her to them.

According to the BBC doc, Charles was only too delighted to walk her down the aisle. Harry said: "I asked him to and I think he knew it was coming and he immediately said, ‘Yes, of course, I’ll do whatever Meghan needs and I’m here to support you.’ For him that’s a fantastic opportunity to step up and be that support, and you know he’s our father so of course he’s gonna be there for us."

SEPARATING THE FAB 4

Since Harry and Meghan announced their marriage, they and Prince William and Kate Middleton have been dubbed the fab four. The brothers have always been unusually close, having bonded over their mother Princess Diana's untimely death, and the foursome—often spotted laughing together and collaborating on various royal projects—was a favorite sight for Palace fans. But it seem that there may be some distance being created between the brothers, with reports of Harry and William setting out to divide their "court" into two separate offices.

LATE THANK YOU’S

Meanwhile, the Palace is issuing apologies for the lateness of Meghan and Harry’s wedding thank you notes, after Princess Eugenie (despite being married six months after them) managed to send out all of her thank you notes to royal well-wishers.

According to Hello, the head of the Correspondence Section at Clarence House, Claudia Spens, sent out this missive: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have asked me to thank you for your letter of 24th May and I must apologise for the delay in responding to you. As I am sure you can imagine, this has been a particularly busy time for this office and we have, consequently, been unable to reply as quickly as we should have liked to."

BBC’s documentary, Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, aired on the BBC Thursday.
