Prince Philip latest news – Queen fights for peace amid Meghan & Harry row as Duke of Edinburgh remains in hospital


THE Royal Family is in crisis with Prince Philip still in hospital amid the fallout of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The Duke of Edinburgh, 99, has spent more than 20 days in hospital following an infection and subsequent heart surgery earlier this month.

His presence will be especially missed by the Queen as she attempts to ease the furore caused by Meghan and Harry’s sensational claims about the Royal Family, which aired in the UK on Monday and in the US on Sunday.

Buckingham Palace last night finally broken its silence over the interview that saw Meghan Markle break down in tears as she and Prince Harry revealed the pressures they had faced within the Royal Family.

A statement released on behalf of the Queen said: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years  have been for Harry and Meghan. 

“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning.  Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. 

“Harry, Meghan  and Archie will always be much loved family members.”
