happy 75th birthday could come with a hidden agenda: wanting the royal family’s cash. The estranged Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly called the monarch on Tuesday where the “Suits” actress allegedly showed him a pre-recorded video of their kids Archie, 4, and Lilibet, 2 singing “Happy Birthday” to their grandpa.
But Daily Mail Diary Editor Richard Eden claims Harry and Meghan’s unexpected olive branch is a “desperate” attempt at once again being on the receiving end of the royal family’s money. “We’re talking about two privacy campaigners here, when it comes to other people’s privacy, we get the details,” Eden said Thursday on the Mail’s “Palace Confidential.” “To me, it smacks of desperation, of Harry and Meghan wanting to get back into the royal fold.”Eden continued, “We don’t see videos of Meghan sending clips to her own father any more – but when it comes to the king they do.”“They seem very keen to maintain their royal connection.
It’s lucrative.”Eden also noted that The Telegraph, which received a detailed summary of the apparent call from an insider, reports that Harry and Charles will speak again next week.
