Caprice Bourret said that Harry and Meghan’s children will have a liberal upbringing in LA school.
Caprice, 49, is an American businesswoman, model, actress, and television personality. She currently lives in London where she runs her company, By Caprice.
Bourret says that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children, Archie and Lilibet, will be given a very “liberal” upbringing in Los Angeles. She also advises that the Sussexes’ kids won’t be taught manners or etiquette at LA’s laid-back schools.
The famous model grew up in LA and spent most of her twenties there, before moving to London. She reflected on how she lived in California for more than 20 years and found it to be a “fake, concentrated world”.
“The schooling is not as structured,” Caprice told The Sun Online. “It is very liberal, not as academic and we are not taught manners and etiquette.”
Giving her opinions about what the royal kids’ life would be in LA, she recommended that “a top-notch therapist is a must”.
However, Caprice said some good features for royals living in LA.
“Our summer holidays were brilliant though,” she explained. “We had three months off. The weather helps people’s moods.”
“Everyone is smiling and generally happy,” she added.
The By Caprice CEO has also claimed the Sussexes’ popularity is falling down in the US as “people don’t care as much about them”.
Caprice’s statements came after Thomas Wayne Markle Sr., 76, Meghan’s estranged father said that he was “very pleased” about the birth of his granddaughter.
After the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s announcement of the arrival of Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, Thomas wished them “all my love”.
The retired Hollywood lighting director and his daughter have been estranged over claims that he staged photos in return for cash.
In May 2018, a few days before Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding, Thomas became a subject of controversy after it was revealed that he had staged photographs for a paparazzi photographer in return for money.
Because he wanted “to show the world that [he’s] getting in shape and doing great healthy things.”
“I’m very pleased that my daughter and my new granddaughter had a successful delivery,” Thomas told The Sun Online. “I wish them all my love and the best of luck.”
In July 2018, Markle said that his daughter “[would] be nothing without me. I made her the Duchess she is today.” His continual paid interviews with the press reportedly damaged his relationship with his daughter, with whom he indicated he had not been in contact since the royal wedding.
In 2018, it was declared that Thomas would walk his youngest daughter, Meghan down the aisle when she marries Prince Harry at Windsor Castle in the United Kingdom. But he pulled out after he had a heart attack and was recovering from heart surgery.
The delighted granddad has not yet met Prince Harry and has never held or even seen his grandson Archie.
Prince Harry and Meghan are reported to be taking several months off work for parental leave after the birth of their baby girl. Meghan had her second child at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital on June 4 at 11:40 am.
Omid Scobie, the journalist, said it could be as long as 20 weeks as the couple “lead by example” who offers as many weeks to staff at Archewell.
“We’re so used to seeing senior royals going back to work but Harry and Meghan are leading by example,” he told Good Morning America: “They offer up to 20 weeks parental leave at Archewell – it’ll be several months off work for the pair of them.”
According to a statement released by the Sussexes to confirm Lili’s arrival, the newborn’s full name was Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor and Lilibet was the Queen’s family nickname.
Duncan Larcombe, a royal expert, implies that Harry and Meghan choosing Lilibet for their daughter is a “major olive branch” from them to the Royal family.
“By choosing the childhood name of the Queen, Harry and Meghan have given their daughter the most royal of names,” Duncan told Fabulous Digital. “To many, such a specific nod to Her Majesty will be seen as the first major olive branch offered by the Sussexes since Megxit. A sign perhaps Harry and Meghan are eager to build bridges.”
