Prince Philip had ‘some fruity words’ to say about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, according to reports.
Royal expert Roya Nikkhah believes the 99-year-old was well aware of the tell-all from the beginning, despite being in hospital when it aired.
She says that he would have remained up-to-date with ‘family matters,’ as although the Queen is the head of the Monarchy, he’s considered the ‘head of the family’.
Discussing the matter with The Royal Beat, she said: “We hear from people close to The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh that she still discusses family matters with him and still sees him as the head of the family, behind the scenes.
“The character that Prince Philip is, I don’t think for a second that he won’t have been reading the papers in the hospital.
“I suspect he would have known a lot of what was going on. I think he would have had a few fruity words to say about the Oprah interview, put it that way.”
Royal editor of The Mirror, Russel Myers added: “Prince Philip probably wanted to bash some heads together, I would imagine. He is not one for any nonsense.
“I’m sure his advice would be ‘everyone needs to settle down and stop sniping at each other’.”
However, the editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, Ingrid Seward, thinks the Duke of Edinburgh would compare Prince Harry to his mum Princess Diana.
She explained: “[Prince Philip] had a run-in with Diana towards the end of her life. So you can imagine the things he might have said.”
In the tell-all, Harry and Meghan accused the Royal Family of racism and claimed there were ‘concerns and conversations’ over how dark Archie’s skin would be before he was born.
Prince Harry refused to identify which Senior Royal made the comments, but confirmed it was not Prince Phillip or the Queen.
He said: “That conversation, I am never going to share. At the time it was awkward, I was a bit shocked.”
