Royal historian Professor Chandrika Kaul told viewers of Channel 5’s “The Fab Five: The King’s Grandchildren” documentary, “I think King Charles is very keen that his grandchildren don’t make the mistakes that I think he feels he made, particularly when it came to matters of the heart.” She went on to highlight a few things the king may particularly want for the youngest family members, an upbringing that is as normal as possible, no fear of their emotions, and the freedom to marry for love.
Much of the responsibility of carrying out Charles’ wishes will fall to their parents, William and Kate. They seem to be heeding the elder’s advice, taking a hands-on approach to parenting, and having their three children regularly appear together at royal events as a “collective.” One commentator, royal expert Angela Mollard, called the Waleses brand, according to Express, noting they operate with a “We’re a family, we do it all together” mentality. King Charles also plays a grandfatherly role in helping instill confidence in Charlotte and Louis, letting them know they’re not just “surplus,” or “spares,” to older brother George. It appears that Harry and Meghan have nailed his desires in spades, raising their little ones in the United States with a fairly normal upbringing.
But as average as King Charles III would like his grandchildren’s childhood to be, some rules still can’t be broken or bent.
