Andrew Neil joined Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield for This Morning’s View as they discussed the latest stories making the headlines. With four days until Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Oprah Winfrey interview airs in the US, a short clip from their sit-down conversation has been released by CBS which was spoken about on the ITV magazine show. With Buckingham Palace making official comments in response to the former senior royals’ interview, Andrew gave his opinion stating “the palace is playing into [the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s] agenda” as they attempt to stay “relevant”.

Harry and Meghan finalised their split from the royal family last month when the Palace confirmed they would not return as working members of the royal family.
The Prince expressed his thoughts on this decision during an appearance on James Corden’s The Late Late Show last month.
In the 17-minute segment which aired last Thursday, Harry said despite their decision to leave and move to California, his “life is always going to be about public service”.
He continued to explain: “Meghan signed up to that and the two of us enjoy doing that.
