A FRIEND of Meghan Markle reportedly claims the Royal Family are using Prince Philip’s illness as an excuse to “muzzle” her.
Meghan and Prince Harry’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey will air this Sunday, as Prince Philip, 99, recovers in hospital from a heart operation.
A Hollywood insider who is reportedly close to the Sussexes claims Meghan wouldn’t push back the interview.
The source told the Mail: “Even if Meghan had the choice to postpone the Oprah special she said she wouldn’t because it has absolutely nothing to do with Prince Philip and that this is just an excuse by the palace to keep her muzzled.
“Prince Harry has no say on the matter. What’s done is done. Meghan said now the whole world can see what she had to endure for months on end.
“No support whatsoever and now even across the pond, still no loyalty or support.”
It comes as the latest preview of the CBS special was released, seeing Meghan claim she was blocked from doing an earlier interview with Oprah, before her wedding to Prince Harry.
In the clip, released by CBS, Meghan claims she wasn’t even allowed to speak to Oprah in 2018 without someone listening in.
