Us Weekly reported that the royal family is afraid that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview will paint them unfairly.
Us Weekly reported that Prince William and Queen Elizabeth II are afraid that the royal family will be painted in a bad light when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview airs.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to air out all their royal secrets during the CBS 2-hour special, set to air this Sunday, March 7.
A source revealed exclusively to Us Weekly that Harry's brother William and his grandmother, the Queen, are furious about what they might reveal in the interview.
The royal insider revealed that they are worried that the royals will be painted unfairly when the interview is released. The source shared to the outlet:
"They feel that by sharing [Harry and Meghan’s] side of the story, the entire royal family will be painted in an unfair way."
The drama between the Sussexes and the royal family started when they stepped back as senior royal family members in 2020 and relocated to California with their son, Archie.
Buckingham Palace announced earlier this year that Harry and Markle would not be returning to their working roles within the family. The statement read that despite this, the Sussexes will remain loved.
However, there has been a call by fans for Harry and Markle to ask Winfrey and CBS to postpone the interview.
Harry and Markle have been in the headlines lately, as on February 14, they announced that they are expecting their 2nd child together. Their firstborn, Archie, will be turning 2 in May 2021.
The couple also recently made headlines after allegations claimed that Markle bullied royal staff members when the couple was living in Kensington Palace in 2018. Markle's rep shared that:
"The Duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character."
Buckingham Palace announced that an investigation would be conducted into the matter. The statement read that the Palace does not tolerate bullying in the workplace.
In a dramatic trailer for the interview, Oprah Winfrey shared that no topic will be off-limits. Harry mentioned that he located his family as he did not want his mother's history to be repeated.
Another part shows Winfrey asking Markle if the Palace silenced her. It is supposed to air on March 7. However, there has been a call by fans for Harry and Markle to ask Winfrey and CBS to postpone the interview.
In light of Prince Philip's condition, fans had pleaded for the interview to be postponed to a more appropriate time. Prince Philip is currently in hospital after having undergone a procedure for a long-standing heart condition.
