Fans Beg Oprah to Postpone Meghan & Harry's Interview in Honor of Prince Philip — See Comments
News of Prince Philip's deteriorating health recently broke, and fans are now asking Oprah Winfrey to postpone the March 7 broadcast of her much-anticipated interview with Harry and Meghan.
After nearly two years of only hearing Meghan and Harry's story through the media, the couple is now ready to lay it all out on the table.
To do this on a platform large enough to bring their message across, the husband and wife have slated a meeting with talk show maven Oprah Winfrey on her show. The much-anticipated interview is set to air on March 7.
However, unforeseen circumstances have since sprung up, making people question the timing of the interview. Prince Philip was recently transferred to another hospital in London after battling an unspecified infection for two weeks.
According to USA Today, the royal is being treated at St Bartholomew's Hospital, a hospital specializing in cardiac treatment. In response to the news of Philip's ailing health, fans have now requested that Winfrey postpone the interview's airdate.
Another fan shared the same thoughts, advising others to boycott the interview should Winfrey, Harry, and Meghan go ahead with the broadcast.
While Prince Philip is being treated for his unspecified infection, he is also being tested and observed for a pre-existing heart condition.
I would hope, given his grandfather's deteriorating health, that Harry would ask Oprah to postpone the broadcast of the interview. This is the last thing the RF need with Prince Phillip so unwell.— Grace Armstrong-Jones (@GraceAr28330965) March 1, 2021
Late in February, CBS previewed a teaser of the long-overdue sit-down with the former senior royals and Winfrey. The preview was done during the Sunday, February 28 episode of CBS's "60 Minutes" to whet the appetite of eager viewers.
The teaser clip saw Winfrey expressly stating that no topics are off-limits as Meghan and Harry will tell their truth about their lives in the past few years.

However, as captivating as it might sound, Prince Philips's state has changed everything for viewers who are torn.
While Prince Philip is being treated for his unspecified infection, he is also being tested and observed for a pre-existing heart condition while responding to the treatments.
His illness is also not believed to have any links to coronavirus, as he and the Queen got their first dose of the vaccine earlier in the year.
The Prince has had a number of health problems in recent years. However, even with this, his family and fans are praying for his safe recovery.
