Fans Defend Harry & Meghan for Giving an Interview While Prince Philip Remains in Hospital
The political commentator Andrew Pierce suggested that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle need to consider the timing of the release of their tell-all interview, and fans are not happy.
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.
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."
#PrincePhilip clearly in very poor health hence the transfer to St Bart's a specialist cardiac hospital. #HarryandMeghanonOprah should think very carefully about the timing of the release of that 'no holds barred' interview— Andrew Pierce (@toryboypierce) March 1, 2021
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.
At the risk of major pushback, I have to say the short clips of the Meghan and Harry Oprah interview do not leave me optimistic that they will avoid their usual pitfalls. If Prince Phillip dies and they air an interview complaining about press treatment, they're gonna look awful.— Tom and Lorenzo (@tomandlorenzo) March 1, 2021
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."
