Harry and Meghan have sat for a primetime interview with Oprah much to the British media’s horror. But from Princess Diana to the Queen’s daughter, Princess Anne, royals have quashed rumours, promoted the brand and answered personal questions on national television.
Harry and Meghan‘s highly anticipated interview is set to touch on the couple’s decision to step back from royal duties, as well as Harry’s fears over press intrusion and its parallels with the treatment of his late mother, Princess Diana.
The actor said the MP’s request to remind viewers that the royal drama is a work of fiction was a “low blow”.
