After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah was broadcast, Phillip Schofield detailed how he went to This morning early so he could watch it in full before dissecting it on the show. He remarked several grenades were thrown at the Royal Family with the revelations which were made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Buckingham Palace has yet to comment on the claims made in the interview with Oprah.
“We got in early this morning and we watched it in full,” Phillip told viewers as he opened the show.
Holly asked: “And what did you think?”
“Wow, it’s a bit of a perception game-changer,” the presenter replied. “It will be interesting to see what is said in our phone-in today on the show and what is said on the phone-in on the show tomorrow.
“I wrote the words, ‘You never know what’s going on in someone’s seemingly perfect life.’

“They virtually echoed those words today in that interview.”
Holly added: “Absolutely and we have done it so many times haven’t we, we’ve cast judgement on a situation without really knowing what’s going on. It’s eye-opening.”
“A couple of grenades in there,” Phillip shared.
The presenters went on to talk to a number of contributors about the interview including Camilla Tominey, Finding Freedom authors Omid Scoobie and Carolyn Durand, and singer Jamelia.
“I don’t agree with that because there’s always people briefing on all sides,” she explained. “So there are different households and different principals, as they are called, that you are dealing with on a daily basis about the stories you are writing.”
Holly asked: “Do you think she was lying then?”
“I think like with any story it was more nuanced,” Camilla explained. “When I originally reported it, I said Kate was left in tears.
“I said it was confused, like ‘What had happened here?’ but it was well-sourced and I have subsequently received a message this morning saying that story was accurate.
