Prince Charles ‘couldn’t bring himself to’ watch Meghan, Harry’s Oprah interview



Prince Charles ‘couldn’t bring himself to’ watch Meghan, Harry’s Oprah interview


It’s just March, yet it’s already being called “the TV event of the year” and “the biggest royal bombshell of a generation.”

According to insiders close to the future king, Prince Charles did not watch Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey and does not plan to do so. Vanity Fair reports that Charles, who returned to work yesterday, did not even seek for a debrief from his private secretary after the show aired in the United Kingdom. While Charles is aware of the headlines and the allegations made by Harry and Meghan against the royal family, he is reported to be “at a loss” over his son and daughter-in-law’s choice to talk to Winfrey.

According to a friend of the 72-year-old, royal author Katie Nicholl, the Prince of Wales couldn’t bring himself to watch the sit-down, which was seen by over 50 million people worldwide.

“He didn’t watch the interview,” a source told Vanity Fair, adding, “I believe Camilla watched some of it, but Charles couldn’t bring himself to.”

“He will not be drawn into it, but it’s fair to say he is surprised and very disappointed by what has been said. He didn’t watch the interview, but of course he’s heard what has been said. He feels let down by them both,” said a close friend of the prince, adding, “There is not a racist bone in his body and to suggest otherwise is very hurtful.”

According to sources, Prince Charles was especially upset since he had been so supportive of the marriage.


According to Nicholl, Charles is aware of the startling allegations made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex during their television interview, which aired on Sunday.

Charles is one of many senior royals whose names keep cropping up in the media guessing game about the identity of the unidentified family member who, according to Meghan, expressed worries about their child’s “darkness.” Harry and Meghan have declined to reveal who made the remarks, but Harry has said that neither Queen Elizabeth II nor the Duke of Edinburgh did. Despite the queen’s short response on Tuesday, in which she expressed a wish to put the fire out and offer an olive branch to the Sussexes, speculation on social media and in the mainstream news about who made the statements persists.

“There is not a racist bone in his body and to suggest otherwise is very hurtful,” Nicholl’s friend said.

Nicholl said on Monday that Charles was reportedly “in a state of despair” after Harry spoke out to the 67-year-old media mogul.

Prince Harry told the US TV host that his father stopped accepting his calls before cutting him off financially.

Harry later said that the father and son are now in contact, but that “there’s a lot to work through there.”

“I feel really let down because he’s been through something similar,” Harry told Oprah, adding: “He knows what pain feels like, and Archie’s his grandson.

“At the same time I will always love him, but there’s a lot of hurt that’s happened.

“I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship, but they only know what they know.”

During a visit to a vaccine clinic in London on Tuesday, Charles remained silent regarding the couple’s interview. The visit was the Prince of Wales’ first public appearance since the sit-down, and it occurred as Buckingham Palace was under growing pressure to react to the accusations.

In a statement released on Her Majesty’s behalf on Tuesday, Buckingham Palace said that the “concerning” accusations would be “taken very seriously” but addressed “privately”

“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members,” the message ended.
