From Good Housekeeping

Prince Charles is HRIC right now (head royal in charge, duh) Of course, no one can take the queen's place, but the Prince of Wales is in charge of the palace's formal response to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey. Spoiler alert: The palace isn't pleased with the recent tea-spilling.

“I think the Prince of Wales has also taken the lead on how the palace has responded,” royal expert Robert Jobson wrote in a piece for Hello! magazine. “The queen is 94 and the Duke of Edinburgh is incapacitated, so he will be trying to placate and learn lessons from this so something can be worked out to everyone’s satisfaction.”

According to Robert, Charles crafted Buckingham Palace's statement in response to Meghan and Harry's sit-down interview. “The royal family like to do things as a team, and if the team is being trashed, they like to react as a unit and a family,” he continued, referring to the statement released on March 9 as “dignified.”

Dignified is one word for it. Here's the full statement:

“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.”

"While some recollections may vary." Hmm. If these statements are really coming from Charles, well, that makes it even shadier since we know Harry's relationship with his father is strained, to put it lightly.

And the royal drama continues ...
