There’s one thing King Charles reportedly always wanted that the Princess of Wales has given him in a way since becoming part of his family.

As monarch of the United Kingdom, King Charles holds a huge number of prestigious titles, roles and appointments that are unique to the sovereign. However, there’s supposedly one thing that King Charles always wanted that he only received after the Princess of Wales joined his family. Prince William and Kate’s wedding took place in 2011 and since then she’s gone on to become a key member of the Royal Family as the future Queen Consort

According to the BBC’s former royal correspondent Jennie Bond, this hasn’t gone unnoticed and, in a way, Kate has fulfilled one of King Charles’ dearest wishes. Getting candid with OK!, Jennie has suggested that His Majesty “would have loved” a daughter - as apparently would Princess Diana after the birth of Prince Harry.

"There’s little doubt that Charles would have loved a daughter (he’s really quite a softie at heart) and it is said that he was disappointed when Harry turned out to be a boy. Certainly Diana, although delighted to have a healthy second son, would have loved a daughter,” the expert alleged.

Jennie went on to claim that she’d asked Princess Diana about the possibility of her and the then-Prince Charles having another child. Whilst her heartbreaking response apparently explained this wouldn’t be the case, the expert indicated that King has gone on to find a daughter of sorts in Kate. 

“I spoke to [Princess Diana] about it and asked whether she and Charles would try for a third child but she said the marriage was in too much trouble to try again. But she admitted that she would love a daughter…and perhaps if she hadn’t have died, that wish might have come true,” Jennie stated. "So, for King Charles it’s a delight that he gets on so well with Catherine.”

Jennie also expressed her belief that King Charles greatly “admires” his daughter-in-law and how she’s flourished in her royal role, as well as raising her three children.

Jennie said, "He has watched Catherine grow into her role, find the causes she truly cares about and has supported her endeavours. I think Charles admires and appreciates the solid family network Catherine has created for William.”

The expert also suggested that King Charles will likely be “proud of the way” Kate is bringing up Prince George, Charlotte and Louis. The father-in-law and daughter-in-law’s close bond has been observed over the years, such as when Kate’s nickname for him was revealed.

His Majesty has also made sure to include the Middleton family, inviting them to everything from the late Queen Elizabeth’s funeral to his coronation in May. This could be seen as another sign of his immense respect for Kate and the suggestion that he “would have loved” a daughter makes his great relationship with her all the more special.
