The Queen will ‘ignore’ the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s explosive Oprah Winfrey interview which has been branded a ‘circus’ by royal courtiers, it has been reported.
Harry and Meghan’s televised conversation with the talk show host, which has fuelled tensions within the monarchy, will air in the US on Sunday night before being broadcast on ITV on Monday.
Palace officials have accused the Sussexes of being ‘at war’ with the royal household – and warn that courtiers ‘will come out swinging’ if they attack specific individuals in the much-anticipated interview.
But the Sunday Times reports the Queen will not watch the programme and is instead focusing on national issues, while the paper said royal courtiers have branded the interview a ‘circus’.
A source close to the Queen told the paper: ‘You will see next week Her Majesty has quite a few things going on. I don’t think anyone should expect Her Majesty to stay up and watch the interview. She won’t.
‘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 things Sussex.’
A senior source claimed that the Sussexes were undermining the monarchy’s work, adding: ‘The mood in the family is: can everyone just shut the hell up and can we just get on with the day job.’
Meanwhile, the Sunday Express reported that The Queen’s mind is ‘only on duty and Philip’.
