A truly Royal affair took place this week.
Prince Harry and Megan Markle with Archie cradled in her arms, were spotted having a cute, little lunch date at a pub in England. I mean, not even the royals can resist a good ol’ homely dinner down at the local, can they? Even though they have been keeping a primarily low profile over the summer, they couldn’t avoid the reporters for this one.
Keep scrolling for the full story as well as details on some other truly “royal” play dates that had us gushing!
I don’t know what it is exactly, but it kind of makes us feel more connected to them, even though they’re privileged, British and rich… well, kind of connected.
It’s kind of like a more “royal” version of Keeping up with the Kardashians.
Pointless, but entertaining nonetheless.
Whether William and Kate’s awkward expressions are merely due to something that the photographer said or the fact that Charles had just let one rip, we’ll never know.
One thing is for sure though, this officially released royal photo has done nothing to diffuse rumors that the couples are not getting on.
Let’s have a look at some of the reasons that Meghan and Kate are rumored to be a little frosty towards one another and a quick look at some other points of contention in the royal family.
The new father and husband, Prince Harry, faced a lot of criticism for his “scruffy” choice in footwear for his son’s christening.
This isn’t the first time that he’s been called out for wearing these particular brown suede shoes, and, as he seems to keep pulling them out of the closet, we won’t be surprised if this isn’t the last we’ve seen of them.
Personally, I think they’re alright but, eh.
She managed to make it to all of Prince William’s children’s christenings…
Eye on the prize? The Queen has a clear focus on future king, Prince George.
With his brother first in line for the throne, Prince Harry was always pushed to the side in some people’s eyes.
Even if some of the British public are overlooking this Prince, the U.S of A are certainly big fans.
Both The New York Yankees and The Red Sox have gifted the Royal newborn a babygrow, aw!
But would he play for the U.S or the U.K?
I’d advise that he joins the team that’s doing better… or the team that offers him the most $.
Rumors have circulated that one of the unrevealed godparents of baby Archie is, in fact, good pal of Markle, Serena Williams.
I would encourage you to notice how cheerful and relaxed Markel appeared alongside an unfamiliar woman while watching Serena play this year…
If an image says a thousand words, this one would be saying something like…
Kate: Don’t get comfortable you, you’ll never be a Windsor.
Meghan: Uh, okay. Can’t we just get along?
Kate: One doesn’t mix with Americans.
… Or maybe they were just disappointed by the match. Probably that.
On May 19th, 2018, Harry and Meghan were wed in St Paul’s Cathedral.
Not only did the marriage cement their relationship, it also meant that Kate and Meghan became in-laws.
Since Kate and Meghan became sister-in-laws, the media has been wondering whether or not they get on.
The next question will be whether the cousins get on.
The playdate has opened up a whole other can of worms.
Since last Christmas, Kate and Meghan seem to have been getting on much better. Perhaps, once Kate got to know the once-divorced American actress, the two found some common ground…
Maybe they’re both crap at Pictionary?
With the boys out of the way, playing their charity polo game (la de da), their respective wives had no-one to hide behind throughout the afternoon…
Future king, Prince George, appeared comfortable with his Aunt Meghan and cousin, Archie, at the playdate.
Maybe baby Archie has inherited his father’s fair (and easily burn-able) skin.
The mother of three was seen pulling silly faces at the baby Louis, much to his amusement, we’re sure.
Prince Louis could be seen trying to take Kate’s sunglasses from her head.
Prince Louis succeeds in taking his mom’s sunglasses and shows off his new look to Aunt Meghan.
Meghan points at Prince Louis, appearing to approve of his sunglasses swipe.
Kate and the kids seemed like any regular family, having a picnic in the shade of the car trunk.
While older brother, George, mucks about in the trunk and Kate feeds Prince Louis carrot sticks from a Tupperware container.
Prince George shows off how tall he’s become when stretching out in the trunk of his parent’s car.
He must be at that age…
Prince Louis continued to grab at people’s sunglasses, much to his mother’s dismay.
All in all, it seems like the royal playdate was a complete success. I guess we’ll have to wait for Archie to get a little older for him to be able to play along with his royal cousins.
And we were in for a treat, yet again, when news broke this week that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had taken a trip down to a local pub in Winkfield, England, for a good ol’ Sunday roast.
The family of three went to “The Rose & Crown” on Sunday. The pub, which calls itself a “British pub with all the trimmings,” is only five miles away from their cottage. There, they enjoyed a Sunday roast for eighteen dollars, which is probably cheaper than what they’re used to, and a few drinks. Meghan stayed away from the alcohol and drank water… healthy.
I like it.
A businessman and his girlfriend who saw them said this: “They were on a table with, I presume, a private secretary. Meghan was cradling Archie most of the time. The little lad was as good as gold, I didn’t hear him cry once while he was there.”
So that was a successful trip! If you just can’t get enough of this cute, little family, then keep scrolling. I have the perfect read for you…
