Despite the horrible accusations of bullying and racism that Harry and Meghan have thrown at the royal family, the king has kept a dignified silence throughout.
Like his mother, Queen Elizabeth, he never complained, never explained. But behind closed doors, Charles must have been deeply hurt – just as any loving father would be after such public attacks.
Perhaps even more unforgivable for Charles was the fact that Harry attacked his wife Camilla as well as William and Kate.
But from the Oprah interview to the docu-series and then the memoir Spare, Charles the father never pulled back the olive branch.
Insiders say the King has always insisted that even though Harry and Megan are no longer working royals, they are family and therefore welcome to any family event, including the coronation.
Even in America they have had enough of the Sussexes. A new Newsweek poll shows that Harry’s approval rating has fallen by a crushing 48 percent since December, and Meghan’s by 40 percent

But, as the Mail reveals today, we now learn that Harry wants a personal apology from his father and brother before he even considers attending. It’s an outrageous demand. But a completely predictable one.
Apologies for what? Is Harry really so emotionally stunted that after dumping all his vitriol on his family, he feels like the victim? Is he lacking an ounce of humility? The king’s heart has never hardened against Harry and he is willing to talk to him – “he is his son, he loves him,” an insider explains. But William doesn’t want to think about it and is said to be unrepentant, as he should be.
Well done, Will. Good on you for standing up to your bullying brother – because that’s what Harry is, a vengeful, self-obsessed bully absurdly draped in his sheep’s clothing to save the world.
Even in America they have had enough of the Sussexes. A new Newsweek poll shows that Harry’s approval rating has fallen by a crushing 48 percent since December, and Meghan’s by 40 percent. His net approval rating is now -10, hers is -17. In comparison, Prince Andrew is -2.
Licking their wounds in their California mansion, these misguided narcissists seem determined to make things worse. Demanding an apology will only make them more unpopular.
They could, of course, be doing themselves – and us – a huge favor by withdrawing from the coronation and simply wishing Charles and Camilla all the best. But she’s too vain and he’s too stupid.
That’s a bad guess, Tindall
It’s bad enough that Zara and Mike Tindall’s gloomy new kitchen resembles a run-down slaughterhouse, but they were also interviewed for William Hill’s YouTube channel. Male role models like Tindall should not promote an online gambling operation that sucks millions of people – often to a life of addiction and misery.
- Ridiculous that the king is paying privately for his brother Andrew’s protection when the only one who would want to harm him is his affectionate ex Fergie, who still lives with him in the £30 million mansion he fears will be kicked out . She must be furious, her freeloading days may be numbered.

Jezza thwarts the wokies
After Jeremy Clarkson stepped in the muck with completely unacceptable comments about Meghan, the streaming giants Netflix and Amazon Prime, and even ITV, threatened to cancel him. The awake brigade was victorious. Now his farm show has broken all records as the most watched original show on Amazon Prime, toppling the Tolkien spin-off The Rings of Power. True power lies with viewers – and Clarkson reaps them by the millions.

Not filling the dishwasher properly and not turning off the lights are among the top ten domestic disputes that drive couples mad. Try being single if you long to row with someone over glasses that are in the wrong dishwasher so that the water splashes all over you when you unload them.
- The last word on Isis bride Shamima Begum being refused entry to the UK after she boasted that the Manchester Arena bombing was ‘fair’ comes from Jade Clough, who was injured in the blast: ‘Those innocent pop fans came never at home. . . so why should she?’
Schoolgirls in Merseyside were left in tears after having their skirt lengths checked by male teachers. Blimey, at my old school they had us kneel on a concrete floor to check ours, one teacher to measure height and another to make sure we were wearing regulation green bloomers. Thinking back on it gives me post traumatic smoking disorder!
Lily-Pose! What a sad picture of Depp’s girl
Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose poses for iD magazine in a replica of the infamous “naked dress” of her father’s ex-girlfriend Kate Moss, even imitating the ’90s supermodel’s photo as she languidly wears a smoke cigarette.
A little creepy and a little sad. The photo of superstar Kate was circulated in all newspapers and magazines worldwide. Lily-Rose is clearly desperate for fame.

Bob Geldof, 71, is hit by a snowflake storm after repeatedly misrepresenting Sam Smith by not calling the non-binary singer she/them on ITV’s This Morning. Since Geldof worked with Smith in 2014 when they still identified as a dude, maybe people should give Bob a break.
- When previously unseen photos from 1982 of Princess Diana cuddling newborn William go under the hammer, I hope the Prince of Wales buys two – that of his mother gazing at him adoringly, and also that of a radiant Charles with his first son in his arms. his lap. A reminder that his parents were once real, mad, deeply in love and happy.
Welby in error…again
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, says that in the event of a Ukraine victory, Russia should not be ‘crushed’, punished or forced to pay reparations for destroying half of that country and killing thousands of civilians and soldiers.
Is there a topic where the tone-deaf Welby doesn’t get on the wrong side of the argument?
Much to the dismay of loyal Radio 2 listeners, the wimpy Vernon Kay – lesser half of Strictly’s Tess Daly – has to replace the brilliant Ken Bruce. Overenthusiastic BBC execs say he has ‘a whole host of fresh new ideas and content’.
Would that content include advice on how to send sex texts to women who are not your wife?
Veteran DJ Ken Bruce will retire from his popular BBC Radio 2 show in April and will be succeeded by Vernon Kay
Friends say Brad Pitt, 59, is so enamored with girlfriend Ines de Ramon, 29, that he sent her a gorgeous bouquet of flowers — and a baguette — on Valentine’s Day. How strange – a hint that slim Ines should eat more?
Pass on the smelling salts if it’s a reference to something more, er, intimate!
