The Queen won’t watch Meghan and Harry’s Oprah interview

According to reports, the Queen is set to ignore the broadcast altogether.

It’s thought the monarch, 94, will instead be focusing “only on duty and Philip”.

Prince Phillip is currently in hospital recovering from an operation.

As a result, royal sources say the Queen would much rather keep her focus on “the big issues”.

“What should Monday really be about? Children going back to school, the effectiveness of the vaccine programme.

“These are the big issues the royal family wants to focus on, not news about the circus that is Oprah and all thing Sussex,” a source told The Times.

Although the Queen may not watch the interview, it’s thought she will be briefed.

“Palace staffers will be going through every word and phrase forensically,” said a source.

Instead, the Queen will be delivered “a detailed report” of the two-hour chat.

ED! has contacted reps for Buckingham Palace for comment.
