Prince Philip latest news – Harry and Meghan Oprah interview ‘could burn final bridge’ with stricken Duke and Queen
PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell Oprah interview could burn the couple’s final bridge with Prince Philip and the Queen, it has been claimed.
Royal expert Victoria Murphy said the Oprah interview put the popularity of the monarchy on the line.
But she said the row had gone beyond criticism of the institution — and could burn any personal bridges Harry and Meghan still have.
“There’s only so much you can separate the individuals and the people from their roles and the positions that they have within “The Firm”, and if you’re attacking one, then you’re also attacking the other,” she added.
The news comes as the Duke of Edinburgh, who is just three months from his 100th birthday, underwent surgery for a pre-existing heart condition.
A statement from Buckingham Palace said: “The Duke of Edinburgh yesterday underwent a successful procedure for a pre-existing heart condition at St Bartholomew’s Hospital.
“His Royal Highness will remain in hospital for treatment, rest and recuperation for a number of days.
He is undergoing testing for his pre-existing heart problem at the hospital, which is one of the country’s leading specialist cardiac centres.
