No “prince” for you

 Harry and Meghan Markle are very, very upset to learn that their “son” will never be a prince:

Prince Charles is to ensure that his two-year-old grandson Archie will never be a Prince, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The heir to the throne has made it clear that Harry and Meghan’s son will have no place among frontline Royals as he plans a slimmed-down Monarchy after he becomes King. 

The move has incensed the Sussexes and is thought to have prompted the series of bitter accusations the couple have levelled at Charles and the Royal Family from across the Atlantic.

A grandchild of the sovereign has long had the right to be a Prince, but Charles is determined to limit the number of key Royals, believing the public does not wish to pay for an ever-expanding Monarchy.

Charles has told the Sussexes that he will change key legal documents to ensure that Archie cannot get the title he would once have inherited by right, according to a source close to the couple.

The decision, which follows months of fraught discussion behind the scenes, has plunged relations between Harry and his relatives to a dangerous new low.

‘Harry and Meghan were told Archie would never be a Prince, even when Charles became King,’ confirmed the source.

In fairness, it could have been worse. Prince Charles could have revealed that Meghan Markle’s pregnancies were fake and Archie Markle is a rental. I’m not saying that’s the case, I’m just saying that I trust whatever comes out of the Sussex PR group even less than I trust Creepy Joe Biden’s PR team. At least when Creepy Joe is lying about Russia or China, we can be reasonably confident that those places actually exist.

I still cannot believe the British crown permitted one of their princes to marry a common sociopath from the Hellmouth. Although, one can’t help but notice that no one is talking about that awkward Maxwell-Epstein-Prince Andrew thing.
