Boris Johnson is still curious about his views on the explosive claims made in Prince Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah Winfrey – but had something to say about the Queen.
The prime minister was asked about the two-hour interview with chat queen Oprah Winfrey during his live press conference on coronavirus in 10th place.
But while he refused to say anything about Meghan or Harry, or whether the royal family was racist, he had nice things to say about HRH Elizabeth II herself.
Speaking to the conference, he said, “The best I can say is that I have always had the greatest admiration for the Queen and the unified role she plays in our country and throughout the Commonwealth.
“Besides, I have not commented on royal family affairs for a long time and I have no plans to deviate from it today.”
It comes after Environment Secretary Zac Goldsmith said Prince Harry “blew up” his family with the interview.
When he replied to ITV’s Royal Editor today, he said, “Harry is blowing up his family. What Meghan wants. Meghan gets.”
Today is Commonwealth Day and the Queen made a speech on BBC One last night as Head of the Commonwealth.
Elizabeth II spoke about how important it was for the Commonwealth of Nations to stay connected during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The trial periods that so many have experienced have led to a deeper appreciation of the mutual support and spiritual livelihood that we enjoy when we are connected with others,” she said.
And she also stressed the importance of technology.
Oprah With Meghan and Harry will be on ITV Monday March 8th at 9 p.m. You can watch the full interview afterwards on the ITV hub
