Earlier today, we reported that Meghan Markle may be planning to quit acting in order to move to London and focus on her relationship with Prince Harry.
It's not easy to leave behind the glamorous life of a regular on a basic cable legal drama beloved by retirees and the unemployable alike, but Harry and Meghan seem to be the real thing, and marrying into royalty is a pretty sweet deal in its own right.
Some folks are still skeptical, given Harry's history of serial monogamy, but he and Meghan appear to be getting serious.
After all, they've only been together a few months, but they've already reached the "BS rumors pregnancy rumors" stage, with several outlets reporting last week that Markle is expecting.
But as many of Harry's forebears have learned the hard way, royal romances are tricky matters that require consent from far more than just the two principle parties involved.
According to Radar Online, one key member of the royal family is refusing to give Harry and Meghan the okay to take the next step in their relationship.
Prince Charles may not seem much of an authority on marriage (His first is synonymous with "unhealthy relationship."), but apparently, he and his second wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, see potential for disaster in the Harkle reunion that the rest of us are missing.
According to Radar the trouble began when Harry and Meghan traveled to Jamaica together for his friend's wedding.
It was their most public social occasion to date, and apparently, photos of his sun enjoying Meghan's company rubbed Charles the wrong way.
“This is the first time that she and Harry have socialized so openly as a couple and it’s a significant step in the relationship,” a royal source tells the site.
Charles reportedly shared his misgivings with Harry, and predictably, a royal row ensued:
“Harry was telling his father, Charles, to stay out of his life,” says the insider.
So why does Charles find Meghan so objectionable?
Well, according to the insider, Camilla pointed out to Charles what she sees as similarities between Meghan and infamous royal from the past:
“Camilla likens Meghan to Fergie, who triggered public scandals with her running around and was photographed topless having her toes sucked by a boyfriend while still married to Charles’ brother Andrew."
The basis of the comparison seems to be nothing more than the fact that Markle is divorced and Fergie became divorced from Andrew.
Someone sould fill Charles in on the fact that there are literally millions of divorced people in the world.
In fact, he doesn't have to look very far to find one.
Any room with a mirror will do the trick.
