On May 6, King Charles will hold a lavish coronation, sparing no expense.
This needlessly pricey event will be all about Charles.
However, a report says that the “fragile” monarch is riddled with anxiety ahead of his special day.
King Charles III has waited seven long decades for this. Now, it’s just a few weeks away.
Yes, he is already king. He became king the moment that his mother, the much more popular Queen Elizabeth II, died last year.
Charles insisted upon a full coronation, instead of a tasteful budget coronation in light of the UK’s Brexit-fueled economic woes. And yet, reportedly, he is not looking forward to it as much as he had hoped.
RadarOnline reports that “fragile” King Charles feels as though fear and anxiety are currently eating him alive.
“Charles’ emotional stability is hanging on by a thread,” an alleged insider at the palace tattled.
“He’s terrified,” the source then characterized. But why?
According to the insider, Charles fears that “he won’t be able to cope with crises that could rip his fledging monarchy to shreds.”
That makes sense. The monarchy is particularly unpopular these days — they’re not just silly national mascots. They’re expensive national mascots.
And the scandal of the unenviable lives that royal children lead … well, it’s impossible to justify the institution’s continuation.
“And,” the source continued, Charles feels “panic-stricken about following in the footsteps of his majestic mother.”
Elizabeth II enjoyed a lot of adoration, at home and internationally. And the pressure of following her act is taking a toll on its psyche.
The alleged palace insider dished: “We worry he’ll have a meltdown and won’t even be able to attend his coronation.”
“Charlies is actually very shy and sensitive,” an insider then claimed.
Apparently, he felt that Harry and Meghan’s choice to live their own lives instead of bearing the brunt of racist UK tabloids was some sort of betrayal.
“Not to mention,” the source then mentioned, “what he sees as efforts to keep him from his grandchildren Archie and Lilibet.”
Apparently, Charles is attempting “to get a grip on the anger, exhaustion, and feelings of inadequacy triggered by the family war.”
According to the alleged insider, “only Camilla can save the day.”
Perhaps Camilla can soothe King Charles’ state of mind. But it’s likely way too late to mend a broken family dynamic.
