According to a royal author, King Charles would never establish a “family monarchy.”

According to a royal analyst, Charles III is not a family guy.

According to historian Tessa Dunlop, the future monarch will not have a normal family dynamic during his reign, unlike his parents, Queen Elizabeth and her spouse Prince Philip, who were married for 73 years before his death last year.

Dunlop, author of “Elizabeth and Philip: A Story of Young Love, Marriage, and Monarchy,” told the Mirror that the Queen and Prince Philip were “immediate trendsetters” during their romance and seven decades of marriage.

“Britain’s ideal family, the House of Windsor, had reached dizzying heights,” she remarked of the couple’s 1947 marriage. “Within a year, Prince Charles was born; as the first baby boomer, his birth clinched the deal for the monarchy’s familial lineage.”

Additionally, Dunlop stated that throughout “this age of the nuclear family,” divorce rules remained unchanged for nearly two decades.

“Regardless of what transpired behind closed doors, Elizabeth and Philip were the ideal marriage in a society that was rapidly changing,” she said of the royal couple, who would have marked their 75th wedding anniversary on November 20.

“Theirs would be a difficult act to follow,” she remarked.

In contrast, their son’s marriage to the late Princess Diana in the 1980s ended in divorce before he finally wed Camilla, Queen Consort.

Charles, who is now 74, faced great pressure from his family and British culture in 1980, when the world yearned for another royal wedding, according to Dunlop.

In 1981, Diana, Princess of Wales wed then-Prince Charles. They divorced in 1996 after separating in 1992.

Diana Spencer, a young, wide-eyed girl, was thrust into the Wild Wild Windsor West in 1981, when she married Prince Charles after just two dates. Their marriage was unstable, with accusations of infidelity on both sides and Diana suffering from depression and an eating issue.

“On the surface, his marriage appeared to be the ideal second act: another blushing bride with her sailor prince,” said Dunlop.

She reasoned that Charles, whom she referred to as “the product of his generation just as his parents were of theirs,” will not be able to maintain a “family monarchy” owing to his 1992 separation from Diana and 1996 divorce.

“The times had changed: divorce was common, celebrity culture was perverting, and adultery was condemned. Charles and Diana’s extravagant wedding was a monumental flop. The family monarchy disintegrated.”

Although Prince has been married to Camilla, who is now the Queen Consort, since 2005, Dunlop suggested that the royal family has undergone a significant transformation.

She questioned, “Can our everyman king establish a new brand as potent as the family monarchy?” For the sake of our divided nation, let’s hope so.”
