The Cambridges, William and Catherine, and Sussexes, Harry and Meghan, were all at Buckingham Palace today, with the Queen, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Prince Charles’s investiture as the Prince of Wales. Basically he’s now waited, officially, half a century to be king. It’s the first time all four senior young royals have been together publicly since Christmas at Sandringham amid endless rumours about the two duchesses not getting along and recent reports of the imminent Cambridge and Sussex household split, which sounded a lot more salacious than it needed to be since, one day, William will himself become the Prince of Wales and, with his own family of five, needs his own staff anyway. Full Story

Prince Charles is 70 years old today. To commemorate the milestone, Clarence House has released two new family portraits featuring Charles, with Camilla, joined by his children and his grandchildren – his Dynasty. These were taken in September.  Here’s the first, more formal shot, although the Sussexes still managed to squeeze their signature touching in there with Prince Harry’s hand sitting on Meghan Markle’s hip:           Full Story

Yesterday Lainey wrote about Prince Charles’s Vanity Fair profile and how it is a rebranding, showing him in a kinder, more familial light. Sure, yeah, all of that. Full Story

Whoa.  We’ve been talking about Prince Charles quite a bit this week, especially as excerpts from Robert Jobson’s biography on the future king have been leaked. In brief – Robert Jobson has been a royal reporter for three decades and travelled on official tours with Charles for 18 months doing research for the book. Full Story

As mentioned in the previous post about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, royal reporter Robert Jobson has written a new biography about Prince Charles (Charles at Seventy: Thoughts, Hopes, and Dreams) and remember, he researched the book over 18 months while travelling on official tours with the future king of England so… presumably… there was at least *some* access. Full Story

Almost there. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have just completed their second-to-last day of events on their first overseas tour. They visited the Northshore Riding Club where they competed against each other in a “wellie wang” (tossing rainboots), and planted a tree for the Queens Canopy, and met with Pillars, an organisation working with children of prisoners, and there was a walkabout, and then a reception at the Auckland Museum War Memorial. Full Story

It was announced a few days ago that Royal Meghan will join the Queen on a day trip on June 14, her first official outing by herself with Her Majesty.
