Princess Charlotte and Prince George proved Meghan wrong with sweet gesture
Prince George and Princess Charlotte attend Christmas service
Princess Charlotte and Prince George showed their family’s close bond at last year’s ITV Royal Family Christmas concert, contradicting Meghan Markle’s previous claims about the Royal family’s formality.
The young royals were seen showering their grandfather King Charles and step-grandmother Queen Camilla with kisses and cuddles.
ITV’s Royal editor Chris Ship noted the display of unity and affection among the senior members of the Royal Family during the concert.
He said: “The senior Royal Family chose tonight to put on a show of unity – and even some public displays of affection between father/son and grandad/grandchildren.

Meghan had previously criticised the Royal Family’s formality in her 2022 Netflix docuseries.
She expressed surprise at the formal behaviour of the royals behind the scenes, recalling a dinner party with Prince William and Kate during her early days with Harry at Kensington Palace.
In the second episode of Harry and Meghan’s Netflix series, Meghan shared: “When Will and Kate came over, and I met her for the first time, they came over for dinner, I remember I was in ripped jeans and I was barefoot.
“I was a hugger. I’ve always been a hugger, I didn’t realise that that is really jarring for a lot of Brits. I guess I started to understand very quickly that the formality on the outside carried through on the inside.
“There is a forward-facing way of being, and then you close the door and go ‘You can relax now’, but that formality carries over on both sides. And that was surprising to me.”
This was one of many shocking revelations made by the couple in their Netflix show, filmed before the Queen’s passing in August 2022. The Royal Family declined to comment on the show’s content.

Harry also spoke about Meghan’s first encounter with his grandmother, describing it as a “shock to the system”.
He said: “My grandmother was the first senior member of the family that Meghan met. She had no idea what it all consisted of so it was a bit of a shock to the system for her.”
Meghan shared: “There wasn’t like some big moment of ‘Now you’re going to meet my grandmother’.
“I didn’t know I was going to meet her until moments before. We were in the car and we were going to Royal Lodge for lunch, and he’s like ‘Oh, my grandmother’s here, we’re going to meet her after church’.
“And I remember we were in the car driving up and he’s like. You know how to curtsy, right? And I just thought it was a joke.”
Harry added: “How do you explain that to people? How do you explain that you bow to your grandmother? And that you will need to curtsy. Especially to an American. That’s weird.”.
Meghan continued: “Now I’m starting to realise ‘This is a big deal’. I mean, Americans will understand this. We have medieval times, dinners and tournaments. It was like that.”
George and Charlotte on Friday attended the third edition of the Christmas concert the Princess of Wales has helped organise since 2020.
The siblings were once again seen showing off their close bond, with younger brother Prince Louis also joining.
The youngest son of the Prince and Princess of Wales was also spotted cheekily playing with Charlotte as he tried to blow off a candle she held as they left the Abbey.
