He has had enough of the relentlessness. Interviewed by the site Entertainment Tonight this Thursday, April 1, a famous British actor flies to the rescue of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, defending their interview with Oprah Winfrey.
While a vast majority of British citizens are outraged by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s truthful interview, one voice stands out among many. “Everyone should have the opportunity to say what they feel,” Idris Elba opined to U.S. website Entertainment Tonight on Thursday, April 1. “You can’t take away someone’s voice. It’s all we have to communicate.” Going against the grain, the Hackney, London-born actor came to the defense of the Sussexes, whom he knows well. In 2018, the Duke of Sussex had asked him to DJ his wedding reception at Frogmore House in Windsor.
Across the Channel, the revelations of the future parents do not stop agitating the chronicle and have established a climate of tenacious crisis within the monarchy. Broadcast on ITV on March 8, 2021, the interview confessions of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry forced Her Majesty Elizabeth II to come out of silence through a rare statement. Unable to do anything to help the former actress in her feud with Kate Middleton or in her psychological distress, the 94-year-old monarch has nevertheless refused to allow accusations of racism to splash her institution. While some suspect that Princess Anne is behind the comments deemed discriminatory against Archie (after having pointed the finger at Prince Philip, Prince Charles and even Prince William), Her Highness has ordered an internal investigation before hiring a head of diversity.
An abscess to burst
A paving stone in the pond to calm the storm. Gayle King, at the origin of several leaks that have only aggravated the conflict between the Sussexes and the Firm, advances it. “This interview opened up conversations that people were not ready to have or did not want to have,” decrypted the American presenter and friend of Meghan Markle in the Drew Barrymore Show. She added: “At the end of the day, this is a family that wants to be united and be together and I hope that’s the case.” Reconciliation is far from imminent.
