British Royal Family News find that with Prince Philip in the hospital for more than two weeks now, is this really a good time for anyone to be doing a tell-all interview about the royal family?
Perhaps not. In fact, royal critics from both sides of the pond have made it pretty clear that they think Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should postpone their sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The much-anticipated special will air Sunday, March 7th on the CBS network. Here’s what you need to know.
British Royal Family News: Royal Critics Slamming Prince Harry, Meghan Markle And Oprah For Not Delaying Tell-All Interview
Reports indicate that Prince Philip might spend up to six weeks in the hospital. Queen Elizabeth’s husband was admitted to the private King Edward VII Hospital on his doctor’s advice.
However, new reports now say that Prince Philip has been transferred to nearby St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, where he is also under observation for a preexisting heart condition.
Without knowing what is really going on or what Prince Philip’s current condition may be, there are a lot of royal critics, historians, biographers and experts who think Harry and Meghan’s tell-all right now is completely inappropriate and that it should be postponed, if not scrapped all together.
In other words, everyone is criticizing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for not ‘reading the room,’ so to speak.
Royal commentator and former editor of Who’s Who Richard Fitzwilliams puts it this way to the MailOnline, “Oprah is their friend and neighbor and would undoubtedly comply if asked and the gesture would I am sure be appreciated by the royal family. If an interview has been extended, as this recently has, it can also be postponed, as this undoubtedly should be.”
Royal biographer Robert Jobson also added, “With the Duke of Edinburgh clearly very unwell, the fact that the couple plan to go ahead with airing their self-indulgent, no-holds-barred interview with chat show queen Oprah Winfrey makes them appear heartless, thoughtless, and supremely selfish.”
So far Harry and Meghan have not made any comments about the ordeal and as of press time, it looks like the interview will air as scheduled.
