The first teaser of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s reveling all royal secrets was exposed hours before Prince Philip, age 99, was shifted to the hospital.
Interview of Harry and Meghan’s with Oprah Winfrey: Will it broadcast?
Senior royal sources told that the royal family is “really shocked” by the interview’s broadcast while Philip is not doing well.
On the other hand, reports say that producers are rejecting the idea of delaying the explosive chat.
Author of Prince Harry, Brother, Soldier, Son Penny Junor told The Sun: “It’s bad timing when they’re going to be saying ‘poor us’.”
In the meantime, a senior royal source further said to the publication: “Why are they doing it?”
The interview was scheduled for 90 minutes, whereas CBC reputedly extended for 120 minutes.
It’s bad timing when they’re going to be saying ‘poor us’.
A trailer broadcasted on Monday for 30 seconds, left a major impact when the couple spoke about fleeing from royal life.
Harry said: “My biggest concern was history repeating itself,” apparently referencing his late mother Princess Diana died in a car crash in Paris, 1997.
What trailer shows?
He said further: “You know for me, I’m just really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you, with my wife by my side.
“Because I can’t begin to imagine what it must have been like for her [Diana], going through this process by herself. All those years ago.”
“Because it’s been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we had each other.”
Meghan added: “Yeah.”
During the show, Meghan will be talking to Oprah without Harry.
In a preview, Oprah asked Meghan: “Were you silent or were you silenced?”
In the interim, the officials of Buckingham Palace confirmed just hours before Philip had shifted to another hospital.
Prince Philip is suffering from infection and being treated at St Bartholomew’s Hospital as well as being tested for a premature heart condition.
