A few hours before the broadcast of Meghan and Harry’s shocking interview and in the context of Commonwealth Day, Queen Elizabeth II calms things down in a message broadcast on the BBC.
Buckingham Palace is trembling. This Sunday, March 7, the American channel CBS will broadcast, in the evening, the shock interview of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. A few hours before this long-awaited broadcast and in the particular context of Commonwealth Day, Queen Elizabeth II sent a message this Sunday evening on the BBC to calm the game.
She reminds the various actors in the kingdom of the importance of “selfless dedication” as well as “a sense of duty”. “While last year’s experiences across the Commonwealth were diverse, moving examples of courage, determination, selfless dedication and a sense of duty were seen throughout the Commonwealth community,” she said. She added: “These trying times for so many people have also revealed how much we enjoy their solidarity and spiritual support by staying in touch with others.
Unable to hold the traditional Commonwealth Celebration Ceremony, members of the Royal Family went to Westminster Abbey without an audience. The event was broadcast on the BBC from 17:00 GMT. In their speech, Prince William, second in line of succession, and his wife Kate highlighted the “incredible work” of health care staff “in the UK and around the world” throughout this year.
One year after the start of Megxit
Last year, this Commonwealth ceremony marked the last appearance of the Sussex couple, who recently announced they were expecting their second child. During the event, a particularly cold reunion between the Royal Family and the Duke and Duchess, now exiled in California, was noted, and a year after the start of the Megxit, Meghan Markle and Harry intend to tell the truth in their interview with the star presenter, Oprah Winfrey. What is already known is that the former Suits actress accuses the British monarchy of “peddling lies”.
