Hopes that peace may erupt between the Californian and British branches of the royal family after Harry and Meghan are confirmed to be no longer, and never will be, appear premature, after the competition for global attention has moved to a new theater: competing television programs.
It has emerged that the Queen and the entire family of working royals will be on a BBC special a week from Sunday, hours before Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah Winfrey aired on CBS.
Both sides are likely to say that neither programmed their appearance to try to outshine the other; However, Sunday March 7 appears to be a prime example of the destructive lack of coordination and communication that has troubled relations between the Palace and the Sussexes, and will inevitably lead to versions 1.0 and 2.0 of Monarchy played against and compared to in the cover. media that follows.
The Queen and her family will reunite on Sunday afternoon for a program from Westminster Abbey in London, entitled ‘A Celebration for Commonwealth Day’.
The show will be hosted by a live broadcast from the Abbey, but the solemnity will be lifted with video packages of the Royal Family in conversation with young people from 54 Commonwealth countries. It is reported that Camilla will talk about literacy, William and Kate will discuss social assistance and Sophie will explore the role of women. There will also be a message from the Queen herself.
If that doesn’t make your heart beat, that’s fine. It’s not supposed to.
The same cannot be said of another televised event which will take place a few hours later when Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah is screened. Members of the British Royal Family, who are relaxing right after their busy day, have been asked to ‘hide behind the sofa’ for fear that Meghan will use the interview to get rid of the Royal Family.
While the content of Oprah’s interview remains a well-kept secret, a clue to the likely more Californian tone of the proceedings can perhaps be guessed from a brief video clip the couple posted yesterday to promote their new Archewell Audio Spotify podcast.
The palace said the BBC’s Commonwealth Day event had been in the works for many months and was not just a gut reaction to Harry’s Oprah Winfrey interview and Meghan. Harry and Meghan’s folks have not commented, but it is believed that the Oprah show was simply scheduled to mark exactly one year since Harry and Meghan’s last duty as a member of the Royal Family – the service of the Commonwealth of last year.
The health of Prince Philip, the Queen’s 99-year-old husband, who remained in hospital for an eighth day on Tuesday, introduces another variable into the situation. Prince William sought to allay concerns about his grandfather’s health on Monday, telling a supporter during a public engagement who asked a question directly about him: “Yes, he’s fine. They keep an eye on him.
Prince Philip was admitted on Tuesday evening as a precaution after a doctor was called to Windsor Castle, where he was protecting himself with the 94-year-old Queen. He had complained of feeling bad, but drove to the hospital and entered. without help.
