Common Front for Elizabeth II and the Royal Family before the controversial interview with Meghan and Harry

The explosive interview of the couple formed by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, scheduled to air on Sunday, March 7, promises to be a public unpacking much feared by the royal clan. A few hours before, the rest of the royal family will attempt to join forces and create a diversion on Commonwealth Day.

Twenty-four hours before the March 7 broadcast of the interview of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle by the famous American host Oprah Winfrey, the Royal Clan is standing by from London. The royal family is joining forces, according to the Mirror, to mark Commonwealth Day, which officially takes place the following day. While the traditional festivities will not be able to take place due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Crown will nevertheless try to divert as much attention as possible, if possible.

In a television programme broadcast just hours before the fateful interview, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, will salute “the incredible work” of essential British workers and the carers of the British health care system, the NHS, who are on the front line of the virus. At the same time, her father-in-law, Prince Charles, will pay tribute to the “determination, courage and creativity” of the Commonwealth’s people after twelve particularly trying months.

The British channel ITV, which will broadcast the interview with Meghan and Harry at one o’clock in the morning British time, is facing a violent reaction after deciding to maintain its program. Harry’s grandfather, Prince Philip, is just recovering from heart surgery at the age of 99, and some thought it inappropriate not to postpone these explosive comments.

Gathered in advance of the broadcast, there is a good chance that the royal family will view the interview despite the late hour. The excerpts published at regular intervals on Twitter by the American channel CBS, in anticipation of the full broadcast, only served to arouse the viewers’ curiosity. The Duchess of Sussex did not mince her words: she accused “The Firm” – as she calls the royal family and her entourage – of having “perpetuated lies” about her and Harry’s relationship and their stay at Kensington Palace.

As a reminder, Harry and Meghan, who moved to California, were removed from their royal duties in February by Queen Elizabeth II. The Crown considered that their lucrative career – including a $150 million contract with the Netflix streaming platform – was incompatible with the public service they owed their subjects. However, Princess Diana’s son has not renounced this service, which he considers “universal” and which, according to him, can be exercised from California, in parallel with any activity.
