Prince Albert II of Monaco admitted in a new interview that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey “did upset him.”
The son of Prince Rainier and Princess Grace said the couple, who moved to California after their Megxit, should have voiced their concerns privately rather than on national television.
“It is very difficult to be in someone’s place. I can understand the pressures they were under, but I think that this kind of public display of dissatisfaction, to say the least, these kinds of conversations should take place in the intimate places of the family, ”Albert, 63, told the BBC World. News of Thursday, March 25.
“You really don’t have to present yourself in the public sphere that way.”
The environmentalist acknowledged that he could “understand where they came from” and wished them the best in their new lives.
“It’s a tough world, and I hope I can have the judgment and wisdom to make the right decisions,” he said.
Prince Harry, 36, and Markle, 39, dropped several bombs during their argument with Winfrey, including claiming that someone in the family questioned their son Archie’s skin color. Markle also said that she had suicidal thoughts and claimed that she did not receive support from the royal establishment, also known as “the Firm”, when she sought treatment.
The couple declined to reveal the identity of the person who had concerns about Archie, but later confirmed that it was neither Queen Elizabeth II nor her husband, Prince Philip.
“He didn’t tell me who was part of those conversations,” Winfrey shared the day after the interview. “As you can see, I tried to get that response, on and off camera.”
