Going back is not an option for Sussex. While the gotha is concerned about the health of 99-year-old Prince Philip, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry make no compromises: despite requests to lobby CBS to postpone the broadcast of their interview with Oprah Winfrey, the husbands remain silent.
Anyone who says nothing consents. Their interview was recorded beforehand and broadcast at all costs on American television and then on ITV in the UK. The CBS channel, which has “no loyalty to the royal family”, refuses to comment. If it symbolized the deliverance of Archie’s parents, finally authorized to evoke their difficulties within the Firm, the interview scandalizes and promises to damage their image, already damaged by the polemics.
A “diplomatic bomb” according to the British press and a threat that Meghan Markle would have done without, while she is accused of harassment by former members of her staff. And according to the British magazine Metro, this Wednesday, March 3, the wife of Prince Harry has even offended his friend Oprah.
The latter could not bear to see the Duke of Sussex confide in The Late Late Late Show by James Corden about the reasons for their departure from the monarchy. “She wasted a few million dollars there, but I just find it extraordinary that a couple who are so rich (…) can manage to make themselves look so cheap,” journalist Benjamin Butterworth mused to our colleagues across the Channel. Prince Philip, for his part, continues his treatment at the Saint Bartholomew’s Hospital.
Prince Philip’s stressful treatment
Far from the Sussex interview, The Duke of Edinburgh is being treated for an infection and has been placed under observation because of his heart history. The husband of Her Majesty Elizabeth II – who remains faithful to her credo, “never complain, never explain” – joined St. Bartholomew’s Hospital on Monday, March 1. Two days after this transfer, Camilla Parker Bowles gave news of Prince Philip, trying to reassure him. According to the Duchess of Cornwall, quoted by the tabloid The Sun, the nonagenarian would be “slightly” better, although his treatment “[hurts] him at times”.
