Royal regrets, they’ll have a few.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will “live to regret” having no relatives for their children, Archie and Lilibet,” former Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter told the Telegraph Friday.
“That will come back to haunt them at a certain point,” he said. “They have no cousins that they see, or uncles or aunts, and they don’t see grandparents, except for one.”
Carter, 73, also criticized Montecito, Calif., where the exiled royals chose to raise their children on a palatial $14.6 million estate, saying there is “nothing, nothing, nothing to do” in what he called “God’s waiting room.”
“It’s a 40-minute drive from LA. There can’t be many kids there because young families can’t afford it,” he explained.
The Canadian journalist and longtime New Yorker also weighed in on the couple’s infamous “car chase” through Manhattan last month.
The pair and their reps described the May 16 ordeal as a “near-catastrophic” and “relentless” two-hour paparazzi chase as they returned to a friend’s apartment after the Women of Vision Awards at the Ziegfeld Ballroom, where Markle was honored by Gloria Steinem for her advocacy.
Carter said the high-profile couple’s allegations about the pursuit sounded sketchy.
“I’ve lived in New York for 50 years, and you can’t go faster than 3 miles an hour,” he said. ‘When I first read about it I thought, ‘That doesn’t look right.’”
Police sources did confirm after the incident that “at no time was there a high-speed chase,” however, two wheels of a vehicle did jump a curb and two uniformed cops reported being “nearly missed” as the paparazzi took off.
Carter, who said he has “no interest” in the British monarchy, did admit to the Telegraph that he enjoys watching royal family drama unfold.
“I love it when things go wrong for them. When things go right it’s boring.”
But he did offer some words of wisdom for the notoriously dramatic Prince Harry and Markle — stay out of the glare of the public eye.
“They have too much attention,” he said. “For people like that, unavailability is your greatest asset. If you’re out there too much, the public has a chance to get sick of you.
“I think they’ve made every wrong move you can make.”
