Prince Philip spent a month at the King Edward VII Hospital in London.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle aired their tell-all interview with Oprah on March 7. At that time, Prince Philip was still in the hospital due to a pre-existing concern.
Reports said that the King Edward VII Hospital admitted the Duke of Edinburgh earlier in February. While the details of his admission were initially undisclosed, the media and the public, later on, learned that his hospitalization was due to an infection. He also had a heart procedure during his time at the hospital.
He has now returned home, though, after a month. Royal experts consequently suggested that he likely feels “distraught” upon discovering the tell-all interview, according to Cheat Sheet.
Prince Philip likely feels “furious” over the debacle
Speaking to TalkRADIO, royal expert Charlie Rae and host Kevin O’Sullivan discussed the Prince Consort’s return. The pair claimed that he now likely knows what happened with the Sussexes, alongside their bombshell interview with Oprah.
The program’s host stated that Prince Philip is not the type of person who would “wallow” in his medical woes. He is reportedly “pretty furious” about the recent debacle with the Sussex couple.
The duo continued that Prince Harry is one of the “favorite grandchildren,” adding that he has a “very close” link to the Duke of Edinburgh. Accordingly, they believe that he is now “absolutely distraught.”
British Royals were shielding the Duke of Edinburgh
Many experts believe, though, that the British Royal Family tried to “protect” Prince Philip from the controversy. Katie Nicholl told 9Honey that the royals were most likely “doing their best to shield” him from the fallout.
She added that they were all “keen” for the 99-year-old royal not to learn the full extent of the interview. But, considering that he has now returned from the hospital, it is possible that he already knows what happened.
Prince Consort reportedly deems Meghan Markle “destructive”
Despite the assertions, no one knows what the senior royal currently feels toward Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. A separate report from Cheat Sheet, however, previously said that the Duke of Edinburgh deems the Duchess of Sussex “as destructive as Wallis Simpson.”
Author Ingrid Seward wrote in her book, Prince Philip Revealed, that the Prince Consort views the former actress this way. It all came after Prince Harry abdicated “for the sake of his marriage to an American divorcee.”
