But he still doesn’t know the details of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Prince Philip, 99, finally returned home to Windsor Castle after being hospitalized in February. He underwent heart surgery, after which he underwent rehabilitation in the hospital for 28 days. All the while, the royal family kept him away from the news about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and their controversial Oprah Winfrey interview.
“The family is very keen that he doesn’t know the full details of the interview,” royal expert Katie Nicholl told Australia’s 9Honey. It was quite difficult to do this since in the UK news reports are full of reports about Harry and Meghan and it was impossible to completely isolate Prince Philip from this information. But every effort was made on the part of the royal family to ensure that the unpleasant news did not worsen his well-being.
Although Prince Philip has been released from the hospital, the threat to his health remains. Prince Harry and Meghan were criticized for not canceling their interview when Philip was admitted to the hospital. Queen Elizabeth II’s husband is due to turn 100 in June.
