British Royal Family News suggests there might be no turning back after this. There is a new report that suggests Queen Elizabeth was not only left blindsided over the fact that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are doing a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey, but also that she wasn’t even given a heads up about it.
This has left many aides behind the scenes at Buckingham Palace reeling, especially now that they don’t know what will be or won’t be said by the Sussexes during the interview. Here’s what you need to know.
According to The Daily Mail, Harry and Meghan did not tell a soul about their interview with Oprah Winfrey, which has already been pre-recorded on February 17th and 18th.

The timing is also of interest, as the interview was done before the Queen released her statement that Harry and Meghan will not be returning to London as full-time working members of the royal family ever again.
One source close to the situation said that Harry and Meghan “had kept the interview totally secret. The Queen was not told, the Palace was not told. It seems clear from the sequence of events that they wanted and needed to know the final outcome [of the Queen’s decision] before they taped Oprah.”
With that said, insiders insist the Oprah interview did not influence the decision by the Queen to strip Harry and Meghan of their royal patronages and honorary military titles. Queen Elizabeth sent her letter explaining her decision to her grandson Harry and his wife Meghan after the Oprah interview was announced.
The Queen’s letter was in fact written a few days before anyone even knew about Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah. With that said, the Queen will air an address the same day that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to sit down with Oprah in a tell-all interview.
