After the funeral of Prince Philip last April, Prince Harry had a long conversation with Sophie of Wessex, as the latter reported in an interview with the Telegraph, but without mentioning the content.
Despite the arguments and the low blows, the Windsors remain “always a family, no matter what happens”. For several months, the royal family has been displaying a cold shoulder to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who after leaving London and renouncing their titles as senior members, gave an interview to Oprah Winfrey that had the effect of a tsunami.
Accusations of racism, lack of financial support, but also psychological while the Duchess of Sussex evoked her desires of suicide, the royal couple did not spare the Windsors, as well as the advisers of Buckingham Palace, but also the press, to which they attribute their urgent need to move to Los Angeles as to protect themselves.
If Elizabeth II had sworn not to watch this interview, she had to give in, and this to better respond to the accusations of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry against her family. And she’s obviously not the only one who got wind of it. “Yes, what an interview,” Sophie of Wessex thus began with Telegraph, while Prince Edward settled for an “Oprah who?” with a smile as if to avoid the subject. “We are still a family, no matter what happens, we will always be,” continued the countess, who also said she had a long conversation with Prince Harry after the funeral of Prince Philip last April.
Sophie of Wessex cold with Prince Harry?
If she did not reveal the content of this exchange, it is likely that, like Kate Middleton, Sophie of Wessex wanted to smooth things over with her nephew, and probably tried to ease tensions, while a source had reported a few weeks ago that she had been very cold to him, and like Princess Anne and Prince Edward, she had not even come to greet him.
“Naturally, the media is looking for people to fill the so-called void,” she tackled the Telegraph, saying that “if people want to pay more attention to what [they’re doing], then so be it.” “We continued to do what we were doing,” she said, for whom the departure of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has nevertheless been beneficial, since she and her husband have taken a more important place in the monarchy. A “flattering” emphasis according to her.
Sophie of Wessex: Her strong words on the controversies facing the royal family
The wife of the last child of Queen Elizabeth II, Sophie of Wessex, came out of her reserve to talk about the controversies that are raging around the royal family. She assured that she would always be there for her family.
Since the departure of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, the controversies around the royal family are multiplying. But for Sophie of Wessex, the wife of Edward of Wessex, the last son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, the family is still united. For her, the royals are “still a family, no matter what,” she assured as reported by the Mirror. “We are still a family, no matter what happens, we will always be a family.” Within this royal family, the couple has seen their role evolve a bit since the Megxit. “We’ve continued to do what we do. And then all of a sudden there’s a bit of a break and things have changed a bit,” she said. With Meghan Markle’s departure from Prince Harry, the spotlight has been on them more. “Naturally, the media is looking for people to fill what we call the void.”
But it seems she doesn’t mind the media’s sudden interest in their lives. “If people want to pay more attention to what we’re doing, then great.” The mother-of-one also spoke about the passing of her father-in-law, Prince Philip. Since his death, his children do not seem to have come to terms with it. Lady Louise Windsor and James, the Viscount Severn, “still expect to see their grandfather arrive in his green Land Rover,” she said.
