Prince Harry’s mention of his later mother Princess Diana in his and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey will “make some people at the Palace rather uncomfortable”, according to a royal expert.
The Duke of Sussex said he “could not begin to imagine” what it was like for Diana going through her royal troubles “by herself”, in a teaser for the highly-anticipated chat airing on Sunday (March 7) on US network CBS.
He admitted he had found it “unbelievably tough” over the past few years but was grateful he had Meghan by his side.
Russell Myers, the royal correspondent for the Daily Mirror, believes such references of Diana will be a cause of concern for people at Buckingham Palace.
“The only thing we hear from Harry is his concern for his wife, his concern for his mental health and his reference to his mother, Princess Diana,” he said on podcast Pod Save the Queen.
“I assume that will make some people at the Palace rather uncomfortable because that has always been an issue.
“Prince William and Harry always had an agreement about how to protect their mother’s memory and I’m really intrigued to see what Harry does have to say about it.
“The clip he said about ‘history repeating itself’ needs to be seen in the wider context really.”
The 90-minute interview with Oprah has since been extended to two hours and will be shown in the UK on ITV on March 8.
And it has already sparked a wave of controversy among experts.
Historian Dominic Green believes the CBS primetime special will “trash Britain’s image”.
Meanwhile, Russell has previously called the interview a “disaster waiting to happen”, much like Princess Diana’s Panorama bombshell.
But fans of the Sussexes say the interview offers a chance for the couple to offer their version of events in their own words.
