Prince Charles was reportedly snubbed by his son and daughter-in-law, Prince William and Kate Middleton, after he invited them to spend a few days with him this summer in Scotland, International Business Times is reporting. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, however, made it up there and had a great time.
Although he's English to the core -- and will one day be the King of England -- Charles has a love for the rivers and mountains of the Scottish countryside. His family also owns property there; his grandmother, the Queen Mother -- that is, the mother of Queen Elizabeth -- bought a castle on the north coast of Scotland, the Castle of Mey, decades ago. The Prince of Wales reportedly loves spending time there.
According to anonymous sources close to the royal family, Charles invited his two sons and their wives to join him in Scotland in order to spend some time with him this summer, for what the British press is calling a "summer holiday." However, only one son and daughter-in-law made it: his younger son Prince Harry, and his now-pregnant wife Meghan Markle. The newly minted married couple made it to Scotland, and spent a few days enjoying country walks and checking out the wildlife in the company of Prince Charles.
For reasons that remain unclear, William and Kate never made the journey.
