Prince Charles is already a billion years old, but he’s now telling people that he’s expecting Princess Charlotte to look after him when he’s ‘old’. I don’t know how to say this, but by the time Princess Charlotte grows up and is actually in a position to ‘look after him’, he’s probably going to look like the crypt keeper. Another little problem is that Carole Middleton is busy taking over control of Kate Middleton and her children, despite Michael Middleton’s displeasure at her constant meddling. If Carole gets her way Princess Charlotte will barely know Prince Charles, let alone care for him in his dotage.
Prince Charles has already been publicly ecstatic about getting a grand-daughter, even more than he was when Prince George was born. He told the public at the opening for the Poundbury Cancer Institute, “I was hoping for a granddaughter. Someone to look after me when I am very old.”
Well, not if Carole Middleton has her way. If Carole Middleton has her way, then Prince Charles will be long forgotten by the time that Princess Charlotte grows up. Even Prince William and Kate Middleton have completely foregone royal protocol to give priority and preference to Carole Middleton and Michael Middleton, which has reportedly irked Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles to no end. However, there’s really not much Charles can do about it unless he wants to start passing some new royal decrees. The way it’s looking right now, Princess Charlotte is going to grow up in the Middleton household, following the Middleton/’commoner’ way of life, and Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles will become distant memories to the royal children.
Plus, Carole Middleton and Michael Middleton – NOT Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles – were the first people to see Princess Charlotte when she was born, which will undoubtedly set a strong precedent for the future. Both William and Kate are saying that this is the way things are going to be done, so Prince Charles really is living in delusion land if he thinks that Princess Charlotte will make it a priority to look after him when she grows up.
