BBC is airing a new documentary all about Prince Charles, aptly titled Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70. However, in between all the tea about the future king of England are some other fun royal tidbits. At one point in the film, for example, Prince Harry reveals that Meghan Markle is a bit weirded out by one of his habits: turning off all the lights in their house or wherever they’re staying.
“My wife certainly goes, ‘Well, why turn the lights off? It’s dark,'” Prince Harry says in the doc. “I go, ‘We only need one light, we don’t need, like, six,’ and all of a sudden, it becomes a habit.”
On the one hand, Prince Harry’s methodology does make sense; using unnecessary lights wastes electricity. However, Markle brings up an excellent point too: It’s no fun sitting in the dark. Wherever you stand in this argument, it’s nice to know Markle and Prince Harry quarrel about humdrum things like this. The royals really are just like us.
It’s been a whirlwind few weeks for Markle and Prince Harry, who just ended their royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Tonga, and Fiji. Right as they started, Kensington Palace revealed Markle is pregnant and due in spring 2019.
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019,” Kensington Palace posted on social media at the time. “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”
