    Sounds like the rumored problems between Will and Harry have been money (and power) related.

    Charles has looked bad for awhile. Sorry to say his flushed face and swollen hands remind me of someone with alcohol issues. :(

    I have also noticed Prince Charles’ hands for some time. My guess is his drinking has increased as he is under a lot of stress.

    He and Camilla decided to stay together, I imagine at his mother’s urging. Can you imagine being 70 years old and still under your mother’s command?

    Secondly, until he is actually crowned King, my guess is that is a huge worry to him. His mom could go behind closed doors and get the rules changed! Unlikely, but not impossible. He knows the Britons prefer William and Kate.

    Charles still has the baggage of Camilla with him. Who knows what will happen once he is King? She is not going to go quietly unless given the title of Queen. Once QEII is gone, Camilla will not have to walk the respectful path she has endured since marring Charles. We will see a different personality. IMO.

    My opinions only.

    Arthritis would be the likely cause. Prince Charles publicly referred to his hands as his "sausage fingers". Not sure about the U.K., but here "sausage fingers" is what people call dactylitis. Arthritis can be one of the many causes of dactylitis.
    He has had swollen hands for years. Considering the amount of injuries and surgeries he has had, it wouldn't be surprising that he has arthritis.

    The Truth About Prince William and Prince Harry's Royal Household Split | Xfinity

    Major changes are currently underway in the royal family! Queen Elizabeth II has agreed to "the creation of a new household," for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

    Late last year, a report from the Sunday Times claimed that Harry and Prince William had been "considering a formal division of their joint royal household, which is based at Kensington Palace, and the creation of separate courts to reflect their increasingly different responsibilities."...

    I suggested that Charles might have gout that is a type of arthritis. Gout | Arthritis Foundation

    Had a friend who was diagnosed w/ gout, fairly young, early 40's.
    He was a heavy, heavy drinker. Alcohol and rich foods combined
    can cause Gout. Charles's symptoms show serious circulation
    problems.

    Thanks BDE, I actually didn't know that gout was a form of arthritis. I don't know much about gout, but reading about it just now, it sounds terrible.

    I absolutely love that we don't have to watch MM holding her belly.
    Get over it - you're not the first pregnant woman.
    I'm sorry...I don't like her.

    I agree. They look edematous.

    Edema
    is a swelling, usually of the legs, feet, and/or hands due to the accumulation of excessive fluid in the tissues. ... Heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, venous insufficiency, and a kidney disease called nephrotic syndrome are the most common systemic diseases that cause edema.

    Her elaborate, star-studded baby shower in New York cost a reputed £350,000 and sparked a furious debate about its ‘Marie Antoinette-style’ decadence.

    But rather than being put off by the criticism, the defiant Duchess of Sussex is planning a second celebration of her pregnancy – albeit on a much more modest scale.

    A handful of Meghan’s most intimate friends, including Victoria Beckham, are expected to attend and the Duchess’s mother Doria will fly in from LA.

    A source said: ‘Doria is coming to a baby shower here. It will be a small gathering of five or six people.’

    Duchess of Sussex defies critics and plans SECOND baby shower weeks after £350,000 New York bash | Daily Mail Online
