A Fox News presenter has been criticized for suggesting that Oprah’s interview with Harry and Meghan contributed to Prince Philip’s death.

The Duke of Edinburgh died today, after four weeks of hospitalization and surgery for pre-existing heart disease. While in hospital, Harry and Meghan’s bombshell interview aired and rocked the royal family.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were criticized for the timing of the interview by presenters such as Piers Morgan, who said at the time: “I think the damage she has done to the British monarchy and to The Queen, at a time when Prince Philip is lying in the hospital, is huge and downright contemptible.

Today, as news of Prince Philip broke, Brian Kilmeade referred to Fox and Friends and cited reports suggesting the Duke was “enraged” by the claims of his grandson and wife. .

He said: “There are reports that [Philip] was furious over the interview and the fallout from the interview with Oprah Winfrey, so he tries to recover and he gets hit with it.

“Piers Morgan would say on his morning show, which he was famous for, was like, ‘Really? Your grandfather is in the hospital, you know he’s not doing well, is this really the time to schedule this interview? Obviously, this definitely added to her stress.

Many responded on Twitter, with Kentucky’s Derek Cortez, joking, “A 99-year-old man has died, 2 months before his 100th birthday. And it’s the colored girls ‘fault ”- Brian’.

American author and art director Majid M Padellan said: “Happy Friday everyone except Brian Kilmeade because hoo boy who is a seriously racist asshole blaming the death of decrepit Prince Philip on Meghan Markle. “

Referring to Virginia Giuffre’s allegations against Prince Andrew, health advocate Kendall Brown tweeted: “He could deal with his son by being revealed to be a pedophile, but with a black woman in the world living his life was too far away. “-Brian Kilmeade essentially”.

Harry and Meghan paid tribute to the Duke on their Archewell website with a message which read: ‘In memory of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh. 1921-2021. Thank you for your service… you will be greatly missed.

The MailOnline quoted a source close to the family who allegedly said Prince Harry would return to the UK, for the first time since leaving his post as active royal, for his grandfather’s funeral.

They said: ‘Harry will do absolutely everything possible to return to the UK and be with his family.

“He will want nothing more than to be there for his family, and especially his grandmother, during this horrific time.

“Meghan is obviously pregnant so she will have to seek advice from her doctors on whether she can travel safely, but I think Harry will definitely go.

Harry would have been close to Prince Philip who would have taken Harry and William under his wing when Diana died.

In a recent interview with James Cordon, Harry joked about Zoom’s calls with Philip who just slammed the laptop when he finished the discussion instead of pressing ‘leave meeting’.
