Prince Philip insisted ‘no good would come’ of Harry & Meghan’s ‘mad’ Oprah chat

The recently deceased Duke of Edinburgh had warned Harry and Meghan that "no good" would come of their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, a royal biographer has claimed.

Prince Philip, who died on Friday aged 99, regretted his grandson’s decision to quit the royal family and described the couple's decision to do the interview as "madness."

The Duke believed that the Sussexes' departure from the royals was “not the right thing, either for the country or for themselves” but later accepted “it’s his life”, Gyles Brandreth claims.

Writing in the Daily Mail, Brandreth said: “I know from someone close to him that he thought Meghan and Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey was 'madness' and 'no good would come of it.'

“I was not surprised because that is exactly how he described to me the personal TV interviews given by Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, back in the 1990s.”

However, Philip had no concerns about the interview airing during his hospital stay.

The consort to the Queen had more concerns about them airing their problems out to the public and had told them to "give TV interviews by all means, but don't talk about yourself."

It was a rule that Prince Philip had for himself and reiterated that to his children and grandchildren.

The news comes as Prince Harry made the 5,400-mile journey back to the UK yesterday to attend his grandmothers funeral.

The Duke of Sussex was seen getting off a British Airways flight from Los Angeles that arrived at Heathrow at 1.15 pm before being whisked away in a black Range Rover.
