Royal Family News – Wishes and Mistakes
Royal Family news reveals that, according to Express UK, the royal author said, “Now I’m afraid [appearing on] Oprah Winfrey was worse than a crime; it was a mistake. I just wish vainly she’d shut up. And Prince Harry. And Prince Andrew. I’d like to see another photograph by the Duchess of Cambridge rather than read another thing about Prince Harry.”
Fraser Marks 90th Via Comments About State of Monarchy
Lady Antonia Fraser, who has written several historic biographies, according to Newsweek, has found success in the UK with profiles of such royal figures as the six wives of Henry VIII, King Charles II, and Marie Antoinette. Fraser’s comments come just as the Sussexes announce they will be making an impromptu return to the UK as part of their European trip to engage in charitable events in early September.
To mark her 90th birthday Lady Fraser was asked by The Telegraph about her take on the current generations of the British monarchy. She responded, saying, “When Meghan first came to this country, I was very much in favor of her as an independent force—in order to remain the same, you must change.”
“I wrote her a letter,” Fraser continued. “I said, ‘Do not reply‘; I was just talking about independent women in history I’ve written about,” adding, “I sent it to Frogmore [where the Sussexes then lived]. It came back, saying, ‘Not known at this address.'”
Social Media Claps Back
Twitter quickly lit up with Markle fans who were having none of it and were determined to defend the Duchess. Despite Fraser’s extensive portfolio, fans of Meghan Markle were not going to sit idly by while she was castigated, no matter who it was doing to slamming.
Twitter user @yayamathildem said: “That interview was is will always be successful because you all still talking about it. Well done, Princess Meghan and Prince Harry. And they haven’t even said one percent of what really happened behind closed doors, it was worse.”
User @ekosime also suggested Lady Fraser was “mad because Oprah was chosen for that exclusive interview not her.”
‘I just Wish She’d Shut Up’
Though Fraser once saw Markle in a different light, the Sussex’s 2020 Oprah interview changed that opinion. Following that interview, Fraser began grouping Harry and Meghan with Prince Andrew.
“Now I’m afraid [the interview with] Oprah Winfrey was worse than a crime; it was a mistake,” she said of the interview, following that up with, “I just wish vainly she’d shut up. And Prince Harry. And Prince Andrew.” Be sure and stay up to date on all Royal Family news and return here often for more news and updates.
