Meghan Markle has accused the British royal family of selling lies against her and her husband Prince Harry and instigating a war of words ahead of an interview with US presenter Oprah Winfrey. The touching affair is the latest salvo in the relentless PR battle between the British establishment and the American couple. Harry and Meghan, who married in a fabulous wedding in 2018, ventured outside the royal fold a year ago, accusing the media to some extent of interfering with their decision to move to North America.
Nevertheless, in the UK, media coverage of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as they are officially called, is turning into a downpour as the show approaches the end of the week. The new clip, released by US broadcaster CBS, comes just hours after Buckingham Palace said it is investigating allegations that Meghan tortured members of the royal family while in the UK.
Fighting for public sympathy
Buckingham Palace said it would not respond to Meghan’s recent comments and would instead focus on promoting the day-to-day duties of 94-year-old Queen Elizabeth II. However, outrage was expected in the British media. Richard Kaye, a veteran royal journalist, compared the line to the War of Wales in the 1990s, when Harry’s ancestral marriage was broken up. Well-wishers Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales, gave extraordinary television interviews that highlighted the height of their troubled relationship – and their extramarital troubles. Their uneasy and bitter battle for public sympathy is similar to Harry and Meghan’s, he writes in the Daily Mail.
Victoria Murphy, the royal mastermind, told AFP that the interview jeopardised the government’s ascendancy. Nonetheless, she stated the column passed the organization’s analysis – and could break any close ties to the house Harry Meghan currently owns. It just so happens that you can often isolate people and individuals from their work and their functions within the company, and if you attack one, you attack the other, she said. However, Omid Scobie, royal director of Harper’s Bazaar US and co-author of the sympathetic article Harry and Megan’s Finding Freedom, said it was simply an opportunity for her to tell her side of the story.
Meghan, who is mixed race and a former broadcaster, is likely to talk about instances where she has faced prejudice in the British press and social media, as well as her discomfort with the current government. Anyway, he said the sound before the excuse disappeared. At the end of the day, it will be good, and I think it will be the equivalent of that one Oprah, he added. The couple’s interview was due to air in the US on Sunday, but was broadcast for the first time in Britain on Monday.
Harry’s grandfather, Sovereign Prince Philip, 99, has been in a medical clinic for more than a fortnight and was treated for an old heart problem on Wednesday. Others called it fake, but British media quoted a source close to Harry and Meghan as saying that the show would take place anyway and that they had nothing to do with the issue. The programming and everything else, eventually at CBS, they added.
