Prince Harry has taken part in a new interview that included some ominous comments about the Queen.
A preview of the interview with NBC Today’s Hoda Kotb showed Harry making comments about his grandmother.
Harry was criticized for not being present recently at the memorial for his grandfather Prince Philip, but did stop in to see the Queen at Windsor Castle last week.
He claimed he dropped by the royal residence to see if Her Majesty had “the right people around her” to “protect” her.
The Duke of Sussex, who took a back seat on royal duties after stepping down in 2020, has been back in Europe for the Invictus Games, after his move to the US with his wife Meghan Markle.
Harry believes he was forced to walk away from The Firm in order to protect his children and Meghan, who said she no longer “wanted to be alive” at points in her time with the royals.
When is Prince Harry’s interview?
The upcoming interview between Prince Harry and NBC will air at midday UK time on Wednesday, April 20.
How much will be revealed in the interview is unclear, but previews have shown Harry talking about his relationship with the Queen and also his new life in California with wife Meghan.
Harry insisted that the Queen was “on great form” when they met at Windsor last week, though then ominously said: “I’m just making sure that she’s protected and got the right people around her.”
He said: “Home for me now is, for the time being, it’s in the States and it feels that way as well. We’ve been welcomed with open arms and it’s got such a great community up in Santa Barbara.”
We don’t yet know how much Harry is expected to go into details about his new life or relationship with the royals, but he has been at the center of controversy recently after returning to the UK to visit the Queen, despite previous security fears of his that may have led to his absence from the memorial service to Prince Philip.
The Duke of Sussex is currently involved in a legal battle with the Home Office after he was told he would not be afforded the same level of security protection when returning to the UK, despite offering to pay for it himself.
How can I watch Prince Harry’s interview?
Watching the Prince Harry interview outside the US may be a bit tricky for UK viewers but they may be able to get around it using a VPN.
In the US, it will be broadcast online on the NBC website for people who have the channel as part of their TV package.
The Independent reported: “NBC’s streaming services often refuse to play if they detect you using such software.”
