Prince Edward on the royal family’s division
Prince Edward was “very sad” when he spoke about the royal family’s relationship with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have stepped down from their royal duties in 2020. Earlier this year, they decided to not return from their royal duties.
Following the Megxit, there were speculations that there’s a rift between the royal family. Things got worse when Prince Harry and Markle did a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey and alleged that a member of the royal family raised concerns over Archie’s complexion.
Prince Harry did more interviews after that speaking about Prince Charles’ parenting. He also described his royal life as a mix between The Truman Show and being in a zoo. Prince Harry also spoke about the media intrusion and even blamed the press for his mom Princess Diana’s death.
“Listen, weirdly we’ve all been there before – we’ve all had excessive intrusion and attention in our lives,” Prince Edward told CNN. “And we’ve all dealt with it in slightly different ways, and listen, we wish them the very best of luck. It’s a really hard decision.”
Despite the drama between the royal family and the Sussexes, the Earl of Wessex made it known that they are still a family.
“It’s difficult for everyone but that’s families for you,” he added.
Earl and Countess of Wessex raised some eyebrows
Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, graced an interview with The Telegraph. During the conversation, they were asked about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey. The royal couple raised some eyebrows with their responses when they joked that they didn’t know her.
“Oprah, who?” Prince Edward was quoted by the outlet as saying. Sophie added with a laugh, “What interview.”
Many netizens slammed the couple for not knowing Winfrey, who according to them, are more popular than the two.
However, several also defended the pair because, according to them, Winfrey is not very popular in the U.K. where the royal family is living. Some agreed and said that while the TV host is very popular in the U.S., she is actually not a global star.
