REVEALED: Harry, Meghan express regret over Oprah interview


Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have “regrets” over the unfortunate timing of their interview with Oprah Winfrey.

This comes after the loss of Harry’s grandfather, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who died last Friday at the age of 99.

The exiled couple made mind-blowing revelations during last month’s interview with Oprah Winfrey while Prince Philip was in hospital.

Harry and Meghan’s regret about the interview however lies in the timing of the broadcast which the couple insists that they had no control over when it was aired.

Despite regrets about the timing of the interview, a source close to the couple told Heat Magazine that Harry and Meghan felt it was something they had to do,
Harry had not seen the Duke of Edinburgh in over a year following his decision to quit the Royal Family and his life in the UK.

But he did have a close bond with the 99-year-old and spoke highly of him in the tell-all discussion with the US presenter.

And now a source close to Meghan and Harry has told how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “wish things could have been different”.

The source revealed that the couple hoped their relationship with Charles, William and Kate will be better “one day”.

They said: “They needed to have their say, and they couldn’t see any other way to do it.

“Harry and Meghan’s love and respect for Prince Philip and the Queen was never in doubt.”

Harry had often spoken about his closeness to his grandfather and Philip had been described as another “father figure” to Harry.

The source continued by saying that Harry was “upset” that Philip never got to know Archie and won’t meet his great-granddaughter.

However, he was glad that he had been able to keep in contact and previously revealed to James Corden that they would chat over Zoom calls.

Harry told the actor-turned-presenter: “We’ve Zoomed them a few times.

“They’ve seen Archie running around.”
He has also praised his grandfather for how supportive he was of the Queen.

Harry made the journey back to the UK for Prince Philip’s funeral without Meghan who had been advised by doctors not to travel.

A friend of the former Suits star says she is “ready to forgive” the Royal Family after Prince Philip’s death and “wants to put their differences aside”.
