Prince Charles should have recognised Meghan Markle and Archie Harrison could have played a pivotal role in helping the Royal Family promote its work across the Commonwealth, Tessa Dunlop said. The broadcaster noted the Prince of Wales’ “provocative” plans to slim down the royal rooster and failing to provide Archie a princely title straight away likely played a part in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decision to stand down. Speaking to Mail+, Ms Dunlop said: “I think Prince Charles has probably been clumsy.
“He reminds me of the well-meaning, avuncular man in the corner who’s a bit out of date, who occasionally gaffes and gets things wrong.
“In his head, it would be simpler to have fewer princes and princesses.
“Prince Charles, a well-intentioned man, walked Meghan Markle down the aisle. He was ready and keen to welcome her into the family but he failed to recognise the wider implications of having a woman of colour in the contemporary Royal Family and what that meant for the potential reach, potential diversity, the voice in the Commonwealth.”
Ms Dunlop continued: “And he dropped the ball, he should’ve done the exact opposite which was ‘hey Meghan, I wanted to slim down the monarchy but instead I’m so going to make your Archie the biggest and best prince on the planet.
“‘Oh, except he’s never going to be king’.”
