Minutes after the British royal family announced that Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, Prince Philip, had died at the age of 99, detectives from Fox and friends blamed his inevitable culprits: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Host Brian Kilmeade immediately linked the death of the extremely elderly and infirm Duke of Edinburgh to Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired last month and contained shocking claims of racism and cruel treatment of Meghan by members of The Royal Family.
Kilmeade said on Friday’s show: “There are reports that [Philip] He was enraged after the interview and the aftermath of the Oprah Winfrey interview, so here he’s trying to recover and he’s hit with it. “
Kilmeade then went on to cite Piers Morgan, of all people, as evidence that Philip’s health was affected by Oprah’s interview. Morgan resigned in disgrace from his show, Good morning Great Britain, after thousands of people complained about his repeated attacks on Meghan. The lowest point came when he said he did not believe his admission that he felt suicidal.

The Fox and friends host saying: “Piers Morgan was saying on his morning show, which he became famous for, it’s like ‘Really? Your grandfather is in the hospital, you know he is not doing well, is this really the time to publish this interview? Obviously, it definitely increased his stress. “
Philip left his London hospital after a month-long stay for treatment for an unspecified infection. He also underwent a procedure for a pre-existing heart condition at the time. He was also 99 years old.
