The British royal family may have done everything to shield Prince Philip from the Sussex fiasco in his final days but the late royal was still aware of everything.
According to recent reports, the Duke of Edinburgh thought Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey was “madness.”
Writing for the Daily Mail, biographer Gyles Brandreth said: “I know from someone close to him that he thought Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey was ‘madness’ and ‘no good would come of it.’”
“I was not surprised because that is exactly how he described to me the personal TV interviews given by Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, back in the 1990s,” he went on to say.
“The fact that the Meghan and Harry interview was aired while Philip was in hospital did not trouble him,” he shared.
“What did worry him was the couple’s preoccupation with their own problems and their willingness to talk about them in public. ‘Give TV interviews by all means,’ he said, ‘but don’t talk about yourself,” Brandreth added.
