On March 7th, the truthful interview of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry with Oprah Winfrey will be broadcasted on CBS. However, many people are asking for its broadcast to be postponed as revealed in the Daily Mail on Thursday March 4th.
It is an interview that is eagerly awaited. This Sunday, March 7, CBS will air the truthful interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The couple answered Oprah Winfrey’s questions in all honesty and did not hesitate to confide about their new family life in the United States, Lady Di but also the childhood of the Duke of Sussex. However, according to information published in the Daily Mail on Thursday, March 4, many people have asked for her postponement.
The reason? Prince Philip’s state of health. Indeed, the Duke of Edinburgh has been hospitalized since February 16 and, as he is not yet out of the hospital, some believe that broadcasting the interview would be “extremely insensitive and disrespectful”. A source told The Mirror that CBS executives have raised the possibility of a reporter: “CBS has had millions of dollars of publicity around the interview, but the executives are aware of the sensitivity of the subject to the health of the Duke of Edinburgh. Moreover, “the broadcast of this interview would amount to setting off a diplomatic bomb,” they believe. To date, the spouses have remained silent.
If many are reluctant to broadcast the interview with Oprah Winfrey, it is because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have confided in each other with open hearts. They began by talking about their departure from the royal family: “I’m just happy to be sitting here with my wife because I can’t imagine what it must have been like for her to go through all this alone all those years ago,” said Prince Harry, referring to his mother, Lady Diana.
He went on to add that he did not want “history to repeat itself” and that this was one of the reasons he wanted to leave England. Revelations that must not have pleased Elizabeth II. As a reminder, Lady Diana had died in a car accident in Paris, trying to escape the photographers. Archie’s father could no longer bear this media coverage: “It was destroying my mental health”, he had explained to James Corden. So the couple preferred to distance themselves from this media coverage and left the royal family for good on February 19th. Will their interview finally be broadcast?
The hospitalization of Prince Philip
Prince Philip has been hospitalized since February 16. He was first admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London as a “precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness’ physician, after he had fainted,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement. He was subsequently transferred to St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London where he underwent heart surgery, according to information published in the Daily Mail on Thursday March 4. An operation which, it seems, went well. The Duke of Edinburgh will however have to stay a few more days in hospital.
