King Charles III is hoping for "peace and positivity" within his family as he approaches his second Christmas as Britain's reigning monarch. It is also reportedly His Majesty's wish to be reunited with his estranged Sussex grandchildren, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet Diana.

King Charles III's accession to the British throne automatically created his Sussex grandchildren a prince and princess.

The King has not seen either of his California grandkids in person since the late Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee in June 2022. Although it is not directly known if the then-Prince of Wales met Lilibet Diana, the then-1-year-old got to meet the late Queen and stayed in London during the celebrations.

"He would love so much to spend time with Archie as well as Harry, whether it's one-on-one or with Meghan there too," an insider spilled, before adding that the sovereign is "hoping they'll relent and come to visit more often as a family of four. Charles still loves Harry greatly, and it's his greatest hope that, at some point, they can put differences aside and move forward as a loving family."

This comes after another insider shared: "I can't imagine the Sussexes would decline an invitation to spend time with His Majesty. As of yet, there have not been any invitations for the holidays."

King Charles and Kate, Princess of Wales, were named as 'two royal racists' in the Dutch edition of 'Endgame.'

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex last spent a Christmas at Sandringham in 2018, during Elizabeth II's reign. The couple decided to spend the following festive season in California with Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, and only a couple of weeks later, they announced their departure as senior, working royals. This Christmas will mark Charles III's second at Sandringham in Norfolk as the reigning monarch, and it is believed he wants his entire family present.

This follows news of the King and Kate, Princess of Wales, being named as two senior royals who allegedly questioned Archie's potential skin color in 2019. The claim was found in the Dutch edition of Omid Scobie's controversial book Endgame, which the author says he had nothing to do with. Still, others question the rumors that the King would even want Harry and Meghan around him or the other royals this year.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle last spent Christmas with the royal family in 2018.

"I doubt if there was any invitation to spend Christmas with the royal family. I would be very surprised. [The furor over Endgame] isn't going to help," marketing expert Pauline Maclaran dished.

As The Royal Observer previously reported, despite these insights, some believe that neither side would have considered an invite to Sandringham regardless of the new racism revelation popping up.

"So the story in The Sunday Times was that their friends are putting out that they really would quite like to be welcome or be invited to Sandringham at Christmas. I mean, come on. This is no way to operate, is it?" royal expert Richard Eden told a publication.
