Prince Philip would have thought that Oprah Winfrey’s explosive interview with his grandson Harry and Meghan Markle was “madness”.

Philip, who died at the age of 99 on Friday, also estimated that “nothing good would come” from the very beginning of March, his biographer Gyles Brandreth wrote in the Daily Mail on Sunday.

Markle sent shock waves through the royal household when she claimed during the interview that undisclosed family members had expressed concern over the color of her son Archie’s skin.

“I know from someone close that he thought Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey was ‘madness’ and ‘nothing good would come of it’,” Brandreth wrote, referring to the Duke of Edinburgh.

“I was not surprised because this is exactly how he described the personal television interviews given to me by Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, in the 1990s”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey was broadcast while Philip was in hospital.

But, according to Brandreth, Philip wasn’t bothered by the timing. However, he criticized the couple for publicly disseminating their personal affairs.

“It didn’t bother him that the interview with Meghan and Harry was broadcast while Philip was in the hospital,” Brandreth wrote.

“What worried him was the couple’s preoccupation with their own issues and their willingness to talk about them in public. “Give TV interviews by all means,” he said, “but don’t talk about yourself”. ”
