How did the UK react

All the official accounts of Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, and Clarence House have changed their main photos as a sign of mourning for Prince Philip. Instead of smiling avatars, there are now official coats of arms.

On the official website of Buckingham Palace on the main page published a photo of the deceased on a black background.

His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle. Further announcements will be made in due course. The royal family joins people from all over the world in mourning his loss, “ the caption reads.

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla and the Dukes of Cambridge shared a black-and-white photo of Prince Philip on their official pages, and the caption to the photo repeats the statement of Buckingham Palace.

The words of sympathy were published by the head of the British government, Boris Johnson, he writes that Prince Philip lived a very interesting and rich life.

“By any measure, Prince Philip has lived an extraordinary life as a naval hero of the Second World War, as a man who inspired countless young people with the Duke of Edinburgh Award, but above all Her Royal Majesty. Our thoughts are with Her Majesty and her family, who have lost not just a much loved and respected person, but above all, a husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. The United Kingdom mourns his loss, but is proud of his contribution to the service of the country, “ the Prime Minister wrote.

“Today, we mourn the loss of an outstanding man who dedicated his life to public service and helping others. I extend my deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the entire royal family on this occasion. Sad time, “ London Mayor Sadiq Khan posted on the social network.

“I join the rest of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth in mourning the loss of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” the Archbishop of Canterbury wrote.

“I am saddened to hear of the death of the Duke of Edinburgh. I extend my personal and deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and her family,” Scottish Leader Nicola Sturgeon wrote.

“It must be quite difficult for a male spouse. He must be a lifelong monarch or head of state. But throughout his life, Prince Philip provided this strength, this support, this reliable support and played an extremely important role, “ said former Prime Minister Theresa May.

Prince Harry can fly to the UK to be with his family. Meghan Markle may stay in the US and miss the farewell ceremony due to her second pregnancy.

“Harry will do everything possible to return to the UK and stay with his family. He doesn’t need anything more than to be close to his family, and especially his grandmother, at this terrible time,” a source close to the family said.

Recall that after 90 years, Philip’s health began to deteriorate. In 2017, he stopped performing public duties, although he still accompanied Elizabeth II. In February 2021, Prince Philip was hospitalized. He underwent heart surgery and returned home in March. A month later, on April 9, he died. He will be remembered as a man of strong character and principled position, as well as someone who became truly reliable support for the Queen of Great Britain.

Meghan Markle plans home birth

According to Western media, Meghan Markle is planning a home birth. This was told by an insider from the inner circle of Meghan and Prince Harry. According to him, Markle is going to give birth in a mansion in Montecito, where she and Harry moved last year.

“They have a beautiful home in California, and it’s a great place to have a baby girl,” the insider says. He added that if the child of Harry and Meghan is born in the United States, he will automatically receive American citizenship. If desired, the couple will also be able to apply for UK citizenship.

t is reported that Megan planned home birth when she was pregnant with her first child, but this idea had to be abandoned because Archie was born earlier than planned. The baby was born in the London hospital of Portland on May 6, 2019.

Recently, more and more celebrities are opting for home births. For example, this is what top model Gigi Hadid did. The third child of Zara Tindall, the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, was also born at home, but this was rather a forced measure since Zara simply did not have time to get to the hospital. It is worth noting that doctors have a negative attitude to home births and consider them dangerous. During childbirth, unforeseen complications may occur: for example, obstetric bleeding can be fatal if urgent medical care is not provided.

The fact that Harry and Meghan are expecting their second child, became known on February 14. In March, the couple announced that it would be a girl, adding that they would no longer have children. Earlier, Markle admitted that last summer she had a miscarriage.

Prince Harry gets a second job in the USA

Prince Harry, who gave up his royal duties with his wife Meghan Markle last year, became a member of the commission on combating misinformation at the Aspen Institute of America. This is reported on the website of the institution.

“The three co-chairs will be joined by 15 members of the commission from across the political spectrum, including Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, co-founder of [a non-profit organization] Archewell,” the statement said.

The Aspen Institute is an international non-profit organization dedicated to humanitarian research. A message posted on the institute’s website says that the commission, which included Harry, “will fight the influence and problem of disinformation in all aspects of modern society.”

On March 23, The Wall Street Journal reported that Prince Harry took a senior position in one of the Silicon Valley startups — the company BetterUp. In particular, he intends to engage in coaching.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan announced their renunciation of royal powers and their departure from the royal family last winter. Together with his wife, he moved first to Canada, and then to the United States. In October 2020, the couple founded the Archewell Foundation.

Prince Philip returns home after heart surgery

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.

In Britain outraged by the statement of Prince Harry about the “narrow-mindedness” of the media

The editors-in-chief of the British media called Prince Harry’s words about the “narrow-mindedness” of the British press inadmissible. This is stated in a statement by the executive director of the British chief editor Ian Murray.

According to him, the British media are not narrow-minded, and attacks from Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle will not force them to deviate from the most important mission of bringing the “rich and powerful” to justice.

Murray also added that such accusations by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were inadmissible without evidence.

“If it is simply that the Duke and Duchess consider it racism that the media question their actions and comment on their functions, given that the work of the royal family is funded by taxpayers, then they are wrong,” the director said.

In addition, Murray recalled that the engagement and wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as well as their charitable activities, were covered by the British media from a positive side. However, this does not mean that the press should refuse to cover the assessment of the lifestyle and actions of the spouses, the director added.

In an interview with American TV presenter Oprah Winfrey, which aired in the United States on Sunday, March 7, Prince Harry said that the British press is narrow-minded, especially the tabloids. According to him, if the source of information is vicious in nature, racist or biased, then this applies to the rest of society. Prince Harry’s wife Meghan accuses British tabloids of racism and harassment of her personally.

During the same interview, Meghan Markle said that before she and her husband made the decision to give up their royal duties, she had thoughts of suicide.

During the interview, she also spoke about the concerns of the royal family over her child’s skin color. Markle said she was upset by the royal family’s decision not to honor their firstborn as a prince.
