Prince Harry has been slammed for “leaving out” Prince Charles in his and Meghan Markle’s latest update for their Archewell Foundation website. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had included childhood photos with their mothers, Princess Diana and Doria Ragland, as they declared “I am my mother’s son, and I am our son’s mother” respectively. However, Charlie Rae, the former Royal Editor of , spoke to talkRADIO about why this move showcased the couple’s “hypocrisy”.
He told listeners: “There is no mention of the other parent in all this, who is Prince Charles.
“You’re also your father’s son, Harry.
“He did a fair bit to help raise young Harry, especially when his mother tragically died in 1997.
“Charles now just seems to be left out of the whole thing.”

Mr Rae continued: “I have to say as well that these are now two people preaching to the world about all sorts of things, especially the importance of families.
“Hang on a second, aren’t these the two people who just left their own families?
“Harry has the Royal Family back in England, and Meghan still hasn’t spoken to her father for the best part of two years now.
“It is just hypocrisy to the extreme with these two.”
The letter continued: “In the face of fear, struggle and pain, it can be easy to lose sight of this. Together, we can choose courage, healing, and connection.
“Together, we can choose to put compassion in action.
“We invite you to join us. As we work to build a better world, one act of compassion at a time.”
Archewell aims to “unleash the power of compassion to drive systemic cultural change”.
The organisation’s initial 2020 launch had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
