No Surprise, Meghan Markle Is Getting Blamed For 99-Year-Old Prince Philip’s Death
Updated April 12, 2021.
Last week, Prince Philip husband of Elizabeth II, passed away at age ninety-nine. In the recent tradition of bullying against his grandson’s wife Meghan Markle, she is being blamed.
Not long after Prince Philip’s death, Markle bore the brunt of unfair blame that she’d caused his death.
How strange of Fox to give Markle such power while also ignoring the late prince’s silence in the attacks his great-daughter-in-law endured.
The Duke of Edinburgh and husband to Queen Elizabeth II died at age 99 after months of hospitalizations. Still, Fox News wasted absolutely no time in blaming the Duchess of Sussex for his death. “There are reports that he was enraged after the interview and the fall out from the interview with Oprah Winfrey,” Fox News host Brian Kilmeade stated during a Fox and Friends segment last Friday. “Here he is trying to recover, and then he gets hit with that.”
“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle,” Buckingham Palace shared in a statement announcing the death.
No doubt the world is curious about the future of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The Royal couple has spent much of quarantine like the rest of us, living a low-key life and taking part in quite a bit of Zoom calls. Still, they’ve also managed to maintain public attention and curiosity at one of the largest scales. Since last March, the couple has moved from the UK to Los Angeles, launched the non-profit organization Archewell Inc., officially retired from the Royal family, and announced a second pregnancy.
Earlier this week, after a much talked-about resignation from Royal life, the couple took part in a “tell-all” interview with the one and only Oprah Winfrey.
The first look at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey gained quite a bit of attention when it aired in February.
Iin February, CBS teased a few clips from Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special during 60 Minutes.
“I just want to make it clear to everybody there is no subject that’s off-limits,” Winfrey says in the newly-aired clip. Later she asks Meghan, “Were you silent or were you silenced?” and “Almost unsurvivable sounds like there was a breaking point.”
At one point, Prince Harry commented that in regards to his relationship with Meghan, his “biggest concern was history repeating itself.” This is likely a reference to the death of his mother, Princess Diana, who passed away in 1997 after being chased down by paparazzi. “I’m just really relieved and happy to be sitting here talking to you with my wife by my side,” Harry went onto share in the clip. “Because I can’t begin to imagine what it must have been like for her, going through this process by herself all those years ago.”
“It has been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we had each other,” he can be seen saying in another clip of the interview while sitting next to Meghan.
The interview was ultimately quite heartbreaking and upsetting to watch.
During the interview, the couple dropped various surprising bombshells. At one point Markle had at some time become so disheartened with the amount of bullying she faced that she considered suicide. There was also the fact that The ‘Firm’ had a lot of “concerns” about Archie’s skin tone..
At one point the Oprah comemented that there is “no subject that’s off-limits” in the discussion, and later added, “you’ve said some pretty shocking things here.”
Michelle Obama has now spoken out about the interview saying that she is praying for “forgiveness and healing” for Britain’s royal family.
In an interview with NBC host Jenna Bush Hager, Obama revealed that the revelations from Karkle were not a “complete surprise.”
“Race isn’t a new construct in this world for people of color, and so it wasn’t a complete surprise to hear her feelings and to have them articulated,” Obama noted before adding that the royal institution was “first and foremost a family.”
In response to the interview, Prince William replied to questions from reports if the family was racist.
When asked if he had spoken to his brother Prince Harry after the Oprah interview, Prince William replied “No, I haven’t spoken to him yet, but I will do.”
In response, Labour MP Diane Abbott expressed her hope that Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey would be “a watershed moment that encourages black and mixed-race women to be open about their mental health struggles.”
Abbott expressed her desire for the interview to show black and mixed-race women that they are loved and supported. “The relentless negativity and abuse is awful. It’s not just any one article or tweet, it’s knowing that day after day, there are going to be abusive tweets and stuff on Facebook,” she said in a statement. “Day after day, you’d open a newspaper and see an article, or a news story, which completely distorts your position. And above all, there’s a presumption that you’re not human.”
In February, Prince Harry spoke about his recent decision to step away from Royal life in a lengthy interview with James Corden’s “Late Late Show.”
“We all know what the British press can be like, and it was destroying my mental health,” Harry said during one segment with Corden. “I was like, this is toxic. So I did what any husband and what any father would do.”
