Another royal weighs in on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Prince Albert II of Monaco recently spoke to BBC World News and opened his mind on the discussion, which included allegations of racism and disregard for mental health needs against the royal family and the institution at large.
“It’s very difficult to be in someone’s place,” admitted the royal family, per Us Weekly. “I understand the pressures they were under, but I think these kinds of public expressions of discontent should be, to say the least, these kinds of conversations within the intimate quarters of the family.”
Albert, 63, said family drama like theirs “doesn’t really have to be put out in the public sphere like that.”

The prince said Sussex’s claims in the interview “ bothered me a little bit, ” but explained that he “ can understand where they come from. ”
However, Albert said a tell-all interview on television was not “the right forum” for Markle, 39, and Harry, 36, to voice their grievances.

The ‘Suits’ alum and her husband have been in the headlines almost non-stop since the beginning of their relationship, but especially since they quit their royal duties in 2020, which they said was partly due to intense pressure of the media.
“I wish him the best,” added Albert. “It’s a tough world out there, and I hope he can have the judgment and the wisdom to make the right choices.”

Although Albert’s response to the interview was rather tame, it seems that Harry’s own family feels differently.

A source recently told the outlet that Harry’s brother, Prince William, was “furious” over the allegations made by the Sussexes. Another source said Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, has had to attend “constant crisis meetings” since the interview.
