The British royal family has been busy in recent weeks. Meghan Markle reportedly received her settlement from her Mail On Sunday lawsuit, and the amount may come as a surprise to some.
Meanwhile, her father-in-law, Prince Charles made a rare statement about his younger son Prince Harry amid rumors of ongoing tensions between father and son.
Finally this week, we came across claims from a German man who says his biological father is actually the late Prince Philip, which would make him Prince Charles’ older brother if the alleged “love child’s” assertions are to be believed.
There’s never a dull moment when it comes to our favorite royal family, and this week’s no different.

Despite that alleged bad blood, however, Charles made glowing comments about his youngest child, which can be read in full here.
