Us Weekly: Royal Family Is Trying Not to Overwhelm Prince Philip with Harry and Meghan Drama
US Weekly recently reported that an insider told them the royal family was trying not to overwhelm Prince Philip with the drama surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Prince Philip returned home from King Edward VII's Hospital in London on March 16 after a 28-day stay, leaving Her Majesty, 94, feeling relieved, a source said during an interview with Us Weekly.
In February, the 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh was sent to the hospital as a precautionary measure. A palace spokesperson later told the public that Prince Philip was battling an infection.

While Prince Philip was in the hospital, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made shocking allegations regarding their experiences in the royal family during an interview with Oprah Winfrey on March 7.
Queen Elizabeth II was not letting her husband join the drama. At the same time, she tried to battle the fallout of the couple's sensational interview. Her Majesty said it’s nice to have her husband back.
Apparently, Prince Philip was aware of the interview, but the Queen, Prince Charles, and Prince William tried to keep their discussions with him as light as possible, so they kept a distance from the subject.
The Duchess of Sussex claimed that her son Archie was not given a royal title or royal protection.

On a trip with the Duchess of Cornwall to the pop-up vaccine center in London, Prince Charles, who visited his father during his stay in the hospital, told reporters the news was delightful.
The Queen and Prince Philip have spent the past lockdown at Berkshire residence. The couple, who have been married for over 70 years, received their first COVID-19 injections in January.

Katie Nicholl, a royal author, and expert has reportedly said that Prince Harry has been in regular touch with his grandmother and has been receiving regular updates about his grandfather's health.
As reported by PEOPLE, Prince Harry and Markle, who are expecting their second child, reserved the right to postpone the broadcast of their interview with Winfrey if Prince Philip had passed away.
As they sat down with Winfrey, Markle, who became engaged to Prince Harry in 2017, revealed that royal life had taken a toll on her mental health, including times when she has had suicidal ideas.
The Duchess of Sussex claimed that her son Archie was not given a royal title or royal protection. During the pregnancy, there was also concern about how dark his baby's skin might be, she said.
