Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's pre-recorded tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey is scheduled to be released on March 7, 2021. Political commentator Andrew Pierce is saying they need to consider their timing.

Pierce is suggesting that the interview may have a negative impact on the health of Prince Philip, who has been in the hospital since February 16, 2021, but fans are standing up for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

DOUBLE STANDARDS

Prince Harry and Markle's fans call out the royal family's double standards as Queen Elizabeth did a live interview whilst her 99-year-old husband was in the hospital. Still, the Sussex's are being criticized for releasing their interview.

Prince Philip has been transferred to St Bartholomew's hospital, a specialist cardiac hospital, after spending a few weeks at King Edward VII's Hospital. Still, fans are backing Prince Harry and Meghan up with @Whoisruwayda tweeting:

"so the queen can do a live when prince Phillip is sick but Harry and Meghan cant release a pre-recorded interview, okay."

PRE-RECORDED DRAMA

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat down with Oprah to share their life as royals, marriage, and their struggle to maintain their privacy. The preview of the interview was released and is already causing waves of upset.

The distance from the royal family has allowed Prince Harry and his family to settle down out of the public's watchful eye.

The preview clip shows snippets of Prince Harry sharing his fears about walking down the same path with his family as his mom Princess Diana, who died in a car crash in 1997.

UPDATE ON PRINCE PHILIP

Despite the frenzy concerning how Prince Philip will be impacted by the release of his grandson's interview, his condition's updates have been positive.

99-year-old Prince Philip is being treated for an infection and was transferred to St. Bartholomew's Hospital to undergo tests for a pre-existing heart condition. Buckingham Palace released a statement about the Queen's husband, saying:

"The Duke remains comfortable and is responding to treatment but is expected to remain in hospital until at least the end of the week."

BIG DEAL

Prince Philip's health aside, Prince Harry and his wife's two-hour-long interview remains a big deal for them and the royal family. The preview has alluded to some shocking facts that will be revealed.

36-year-old Prince Harry is shown in the preview opening up about how difficult it must have been for his mother to be sitting in the same position but alone, without the support of her husband.

The tell-all interview follows after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex officially announced that they were stepping back from their responsibilities as senior royal family members.

A close friend of the couple has revealed that the distance from the royal family has allowed Prince Harry and his family to settle down out of the public's watchful eye and that they don't regret their decision.
