Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will “regret” their children not having a relationship with the Royal Family, former Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter has said.
Royal regrets, they will have a few.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will “live to regret” not having relatives for their children, Archie and Lilibet, former Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter told the Telegraph Friday.
“That’s going to come back to haunt them at some point,” he said. “They have no cousins they see, or uncles or aunts, and they don’t see grandparents, except one.”
Carter, 73, also slammed Montecito, Calif., where the exiled royals chose to raise their children in an expensive $14.6 million estate, saying there was “nothing, nothing, nothing to do” in the so-called his “waiting room of God.”
“It’s a 40-minute drive from LA. There can’t be many children there because young families can’t afford it,” he explained.
The Canadian journalist and longtime New Yorker also weighed in on the couple’s infamous “car chase” in Manhattan last month.
The couple and their representatives described the May 16 ordeal as a “near disaster” and a “relentless” two-hour paparazzi chase as they back to the friend’s apartment after the Women of Vision Awards at the Ziegfeld Ballroom, where Markle was honored by Gloria Steinem for her advocacy.
Carter said the high-profile couple’s allegations of stalking don’t seem good.
“I lived in New York for 50 years, and you couldn’t go faster than 3 miles an hour,” he said. “When I first read about it I thought, ‘That doesn’t seem right.'”
Police sources confirmed after the incident that “no time there was a high-speed chase,” however, two wheels of one vehicle jumped the curb and two uniformed police officers reportedly had a “near miss” during the paparazzi flew.
Carter, who has said he has “no interest” in the British monarchy, admitted to the Telegraph that he was enjoying watching the royal family drama unfold.
“I love it when they make mistakes. When everything is fine, it’s boring.”
But he did offer some words of wisdom for Prince Harry and Markle’s well-known – don’t go unnoticed by the public.
“They get too much attention,” he said. “For people like that, unavailability is your greatest asset. If you’re out too much, the public has a chance to get sick of you.
“I think they’ve made every misstep you can make.”
