Charles ‘wrangled’ by Kate stealing limelight and upstaging him during major royal events


Kate stole the show during the King’s first state visit with the South African President in a move reminiscent of Princess Diana.

Speaking to Palace Confidential, the Daily Mail’s Diary Editor Richard Eden said: “I think he’s getting used to it. Isn’t he?

“Remember the day the Charles was proclaimed King. He wasn’t on the front pages because the Sunday papers had all that walkabout at Windsor with Catherine, William, Harry and Meghan.

“I’m sure it does wrangle a bit. He was sort of known to be resentful when Diana used to get all the headlines.

“Now he’s King but it’s Catherine on the front pages.”

Mr Eden said: “But it was Catherine who was wearing the finest jewellery.

“People love to see her.

“Handsome man though Charles is, I think we’re in the business of selling papers.

“So, we do want the most appealing person on our front pages.”

The Princess of Wales had all eyes on her as she wore £14,500 brooch on her blue sash, previously spotted at Remembrance Day service earlier this month.

Her show-stealing outfit is reminiscent of Princess Diana’s time in the Firm when she used to make headlines while members of the Royal Family and then-Prince Charles were overshadowed by her stunning appearances.

Buckingham Palace saw its first foreign state visit since Donald Trump’s pre-pandemic travel to London with then-First Lady Melania Trump.

Mr Ramaphosa is also in the grip of a potentially explosive corruption scandal known as “farmgate” in which he is accused of allegedly covering up a robbery that took place at his private farm, Phala Phala, back in February 2020.

The investigation could cost him his bid to get re-elected in 2024, as his party is set to pick its presidential candidate for the upcoming election this year.
