Queen Elizabeth II will make a TV appearance hours before long-waited Meghan Markle and Prince Harry interview with Oprah Winfrey celebrating Commonwealth day on March 7.
The queen will share her annual message on Commonwealth day replacing the usual service celebration that was canceled due to COVID-19.
Westminster Abbey announced on Monday that the program will also involve the crown’s heir Prince Charles, Duke of Cambridge Prince William, and other senior royals.
Last week, CBS announced that iconic media star Oprah Winfrey interviewed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after stepping away from their royal duties last year.
The interview will be aired on March 7 according to CBS, saying, ‘Winfrey will speak with Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, in a wide-ranging interview covering everything from stepping into life as a royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work, to how she is handling life under intense public pressure.’
“Later, the two are joined by Prince Harry as they speak about their move to the United States and their future hopes and dreams for their expanding family,” CBS added.
Hours after announcing the details of the interview, Buckingham Palace announced that the couple won’t return to their royal duties again. On the other hand, Meghan commented, that public service is universal.
This comment was met by full rejection from senior royals who considered it as an insult against the queen.
