- Meghan Markle said they won’t be silent if the firm is playing an active role in perpetuating falsehoods about them
- The Duchess of Sussex is aware that revealing the truth comes with the risk of losing things
- Some royal experts think the Sussexes’ interview with Oprah should be rescheduled because it’s a difficult time for the royals
Meghan Markle is prepared for the consequences of doing an interview with Oprah Winfrey that is set to air over the weekend.
In the promo for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah, the host asked Markle what she feels about the palace hearing her speak her and Prince Harry’s truth. The duchess said that she’s aware that she might lose something out of it but no longer minds it because they already lost a lot in the past years when they stayed silent.
“I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active role that the firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us,” Markle said in the promo. “And if that comes with risk of losing things, I mean, there’s a lot that’s been lost already.”
In the first look at Prince Harry and Markle’s interview with Oprah, the latter already said that no topic was “off-limits.” She asked Markle if she was silent or silenced and what was her breaking point.
Prince Harry also shared that his biggest concern was “history repeating itself.” Many believed that he was referring to his mom Princess Diana’s relationship with the press because his wife, Markle, had been attacked by the press too with various negative headlines in the past years.
“You’ve said some pretty shocking things here,” Oprah said.
Meanwhile, some are concerned about the timing of Prince Harry and Markle’s interview because Prince Philip is still in the hospital. Many are worried that it might only make things worse for the royals.
“Clearly this interview comes at a very difficult time for the royal family. They are much more concerned with the more serious matter which is the health of the Duke of Edinburgh who is seriously ill in hospital,” royal expert Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight. “Some royal commentators and experts believe that this interview should be rescheduled and aired at a less sensitive time for the royal family…The timing really couldn’t be any worse for the royal family. This interview is coming at such a difficult time.”
