Hours after Harry and Meghan announced they were expecting their second child, it was revealed the couple have recorded a bombshell interview with their friend and former neighbour Oprah. The Duke of Sussex has been accused of disrespecting the Queen by a royal expert.
The interview – which is set to air in March – will be the first time the pair have spoken in detail about stepping away from the Firm.
Royal author Robert Jobson accused Harry of betraying the trust of the royals – especially the Queen.
He told the Daily Mail: “How can anyone move on when Meghan and Harry continue to drone on about the difficulties of royal life and being part of the Royal Family.
“This interview is a betrayal of trust whatever way you look at it.
“Harry, who claimed he wanted to escape the publicity of being a front-line royal, has swapped duty for a cash bonanza deal with Netflix.
“We are not told if money has been paid for this interview.
“The army veteran, who serviced with distinction in Afghanistan, often talks about respecting the Queen.
“But to be blunt his decision to join his wife’s tell-all on US television interview after they exited the royal family so noisily and dramatically, is another act of disrespect.

He continued: “Given the way the media focus on such royal interviews, one word out of place will be jumped on to confirm ongoing feuds in the Royal Family.
“If Harry or Meghan talk openly about the fall-out with William and Kate it will cause uproar.
“If they don’t even mention them, it will be seen as a snub to his brother or just another silky PR exercise – something their friend and interrogator Oprah Winfrey won’t like.”
This comes after Harry and Meghan could lose all their remaining royal patronages including Harry’s three honorary military titles.
Meghan would have to step down as patron of the National Theatre, which the Queen gifted to her in 2019 after 45 years in the role.
The interview – titled Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special – will air on March 7.
