In their interview with Oprah Winfrey (67), Duchess Meghan (39) and Prince Harry (36) opened up about their experiences in the British royal family. In a bit of bad timing, Prince Harry's grandfather Prince Philip (99) was admitted to the hospital for precautionary care in the weeks before the interview aired.
But what would have happened if Prince Philip's health took a turn for the worse? Their friend and confidant Gayle King explained their plan.
Harry and Meghan Interview: The Plan In Case Prince Philip's Health Went South
Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Archie Mountbatten-Windsor maybe have dropped some major bombshells about their reality and mistreatment in the Royal family but they made sure to only say positive things about The Queen and her husband Prince Philip.
Prince Harry even did an interview with James Corden where he opened up about having fun zoom chats with the pair of them and that "both my grandparents know how to zoom." Harry even mentioned that "My grandfather instead of pressing 'leave meeting', he just goes 'thunk' [shuts laptop closed] so we're just like 'Bye, bye!' and as I'm pressing 'leave' he just goes 'thunk'!"
Even in the Oprah with Meghan and Harry interview, the pair mentioned how well they were treated by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. But now many like Piers Morgan, are claiming it was careless and rude of Harry and Meghan to allow the interview to be aired while Prince Philip was in the hospital.
Gayle King (66) revealed on her radio show Gayle King in the House, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan had a plan B if Prince Philip's health had taken a turn for the worse: "Well, just so you know, they had done that interview before Prince Phillip went into the hospital. If something, God forbid, had happened to him, the interview would not have run at this particular time. But the interview was done and was scheduled before he went into the hospital. But a lot of people have raised that point."
According to Gayle, Harry allegedly had made it clear to CBS that in the event of Prince Philip's worsening health or passing, the broadcast could have been postponed. Luckily, Prince Philip's health has vastly improved and he was even released from the hospital to return to his wife's side!
This is a great relief to Harry and Meghan and all of the Royal family who has been worried.
