Prince Charles’ Speech About Harry at the Royal Wedding Reportedly Made Everyone Cry.
Every moment of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding was perfect, and it was clear that their families were incredibly proud on the big day.
So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Prince Harry’s dad, Prince Charles, gave a tearjerking speech at the afternoon wedding reception, at which around 600 guests were present.
According to People, a source at the reception revealed that Prince Charles’s speech was “very sweet actually, very heartfelt.” As well as commenting on how proud he was of his youngest son, Charles also apparently remarked on what an incredible man Harry had “grown into.”
And as if that wasn’t enough to bring a tear to your eye, People’s source reveals that Prince Charles ended the speech by saying, “My darling old Harry, I’m so happy for you,” later confirming “how he’s really happy for them both.” Clearly, Prince Charles is delighted to welcome Meghan into the royal family.
According to The Telegraph, “Prince Charles made a really gracious speech, it was really calming and amazingly endearing. He’s got a wonderfully dry sense of humor.”
Prince Charles also spoke at the evening reception at Frogmore House, where he hosted an exclusive party for 200 of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s closest friends.
According to the Daily Mail, Prince Charles saved his funny material for the evening speech, and their source reports that “Charles spoke about feeding Harry a bottle and changing his nappy, and then said look how well he turned out.”
But if you hoping for any rude anecdotes from Prince Harry’s dad, it sounds as though he didn’t reveal any last night, as the Daily Mail’s source claims, “That’s about as embarrassing as it got.”
