‘Prince of Wakes seems like quite a demotion’: Fans poke fun at the Royal Family Instagram account for misspelling Prince Charles’ name after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview
- The Instagram account is tasked with sharing official photos of the Royal Family
- A story was shared about the Prince of Wales’ visit at the Jesus House church
- But the post wrongly referred to Prince Charles, 72, as ‘the Prince of Wakes’
Fans have poked fun at the Royal Family Instagram account after Prince Charles’ title was incorrectly spelt as ‘Prince of Wakes’ in a new Instagram story.
The social media profile tasked with sharing official photos and videos of the Queen and her family posted about the Prince of Wales’ appearance at the Jesus House church near Brent Cross in London, this morning.
‘The Prince of Wakes has been @JesusHouseUK today to visit their pop-up vaccine centre,’ the caption said, wrongly referring to Prince Charles, 72, as ‘the Prince of Wakes’ instead of ‘the Prince of Wales’.
It comes after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s bombshell Oprah interview sent shock waves around the world yesterday as the couple laid bare the extent of their rift with the Firm.

The mistake, which was shared by the Royal Family this afternoon, has been ridiculed online, with one person joking: ‘Prince of Wakes seems like quite a demotion’.
It came as Prince Charles smiled but stayed silent as he was quizzed about Meghan and Harry’s bombshell interview on the first official engagement by a royal since it aired – as he told a nurse ‘I can imagine how exhausting it is’ as she described her work handing out vaccines.
The Prince of Wales, who is said to be ‘absolutely devastated’ at Harry’s claims he cut him off, put on a brave face as he spoke to medics, clerics and patients at Jesus House church near Brent Cross in London, following the deluge of personal attacks in front of a TV audience of 28million in the UK and US alone.
Meghan and Harry accused an unnamed Royal Family member of racism, suggesting the relative had asked ‘how dark’ their baby would be; said they had been driven out of Britain, in part, by racism; and accused the Palace machinery of failing to support a ‘suicidal’ Meghan.
Harry revealed an astonishing rift with his father, saying his family had cut him off financially while suggesting the Queen had been badly advised and had cancelled a meeting scheduled at Sandringham.

Meghan also accused her sister-in-law Kate of making her cry; suggested senior royals plotted to ensure Archie would never have a title or adequate security; and said officials had failed to stand up for the couple against ‘racist’ commentary, while lying to protect other royals.
At Jesus House church today, one parishioner, who only gave her first name, Grace, highlighted that Charles had visited a ‘black church’, adding: ‘All that effort and someone turns around and says there’s racism, I don’t believe that’.
Harry – through comments to Oprah – has ruled out the Queen and Prince Philip as having made the comments about Archie but left other royals under suspicion.
Charles is said to be ‘deeply’ concerned over the racism claims, with a source saying: ‘It goes against everything the Prince of Wales believes in. He believes diversity is the strength of our society.’
This morning’s visit is understood to have been in the palace diary for some time, although the royals may have had a suspicion about what could be discussed in the Oprah interview in advance of it airing.

Charles seemed at ease as he chatted with people waiting for their vaccinations, including one woman who said she was from Nigeria.
The prince – who previously visited the church in 2007 – replied: ‘Oh fantastic, yes, I’ve been there. Lots of different ethnic groups. Do give them my kind regards next time you speak to them.’
As Charles left the church, a reporter asked, ‘Sir, what did you think of the interview?’, and after turning to see who had called out, he smiled and carried on walking.
In the Oprah interview, Charles was personally referenced by Prince Harry, who said he felt ‘really let down’ by his father after he allegedly refused to answer his calls during his time in Canada.
Harry also claimed his family had cut him off financially and suggested the Queen had been badly advised and had cancelled a meeting scheduled at Sandringham.
Discussing his father, Harry said: ‘I feel really let down because he’s been through something similar. He knows what pain feels like. I will always love him, but there’s a lot of hurt that’s happened. And I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship.’
A source close to the heir to the throne told the Telegraph that Charles will be left ‘absolutely devastated’ by what his youngest son had said about him.
Meanwhile, Buckingham Palace was under increasing pressure today to comment on Harry and Meghan’s claims – after the Queen it said to have refused to sign off a statement prepared by aides yesterday.
