Should the royal family comment on the interview?

Social media seems to be divided on that point.

“We are going to need a statement on the interview sooner or later,” one follower commented.

“No we don’t…… it’s a private family matter and should have stayed that way,” came one reply.

Another agreed.

“It’s a private matter, it doesn’t affect the constitution, their departure doesn’t cost the tax payer anything,” another commented.

“No statement is needed when it’s all lies,” another concluded.
