Queen seen enjoying socially-distanced walk with Prince Charles in first picture since Meghan's Oprah interview
Photos taken during their private engagement at Frogmore on the monarch's Windsor estate showed both the royals looking happy and in good spirit
Queen Elizabeth II and her son Prince Charles were recently pictured together enjoying a socially-distanced walk at Windsor Castle. The photos taken during their private engagement at Frogmore on the monarch's Windsor estate, details of which have not been released yet, showed both of them looking happy and in good spirit. On the other hand, Prince Harry was seen relaxing on a California beach after accusing the royals of racism in an Oprah Winfrey interview alongside Meghan Markle. He was seen taking a stroll on the beach with his black labrador Pula, while sporting a baseball cap backward and a pair of sunglasses.
In the recent pictures, the 94-year-old monarch was seen donning a headscarf with a green, full-length raincoat, and black rubber boots. She also wore gloves on her hands which were mostly inside the coat’s pockets. The 72-year-old Charles looked more formal in a brown overcoat, shirt, tie, and brogues. Their all-merry, radiant pictures were made more beautiful by the cherry trees and daffodils in the background.
The photos came weeks after Harry and Meghan gave their explosive interview to the queen of chat shows. In the interview, the Sussexes detailed their struggled while living in the Palace. While Harry claimed that his father and elder brother Prince William were “trapped” within the palace, Meghan accused the family of denying their son Archie royal title because of his mixed race. She also claimed that despite being informed about her serious mental health crisis, no one in the family provided any help to her. The former actress said she even thought of taking her life while being pregnant with her firstborn.
As per reports, the shocking claims made by the couple shook the pillars of the royal family. A statement was also issued on behalf of the Queen after the allegations stirred a lot of controversies. It read, “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan. The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”
Though the whole thing was reportedly quite upsetting for the royals, it did not bring any difference between the Queen and Charles. An insider told the Daily Mail, “Although unplanned, this picture offers an insight into a family that is still together, happy and united after a difficult few months.”
Meanwhile, on Friday, April 2, Harry went barefoot on a beach in Santa Barbara, California, to have a good time with his dog. The soon-to-be father’s relaxing moment was captured after it was reported he had grabbed two job opportunities in the US after moving there last year. Harry is now the chief impact officer at a Silicon Valley start-up BetterUp and has also associated himself with a think tank, The Aspen Institute, where he will work as a commissioner along with 14 other commissioners studying “fake news”.
