An old military friend of Prince Harry has come out in staunch defence of both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Former Special Forces soldier Dean Stott spoke to Australia’s The Today Show about the Royal Family gathering for the funeral of Prince Philip. He was asked how Meghan Markle and Harry are coping with the enormous criticism that they have come under since their Oprah interview in regards to the timing for the Duke of Edinburgh.
Mr Stott told viewers: “Prince Philip had fought in wars and lived through so many things.
“I don’t think he was phased at all about an interview on TV.
“He’s spoken to Harry since, and Harry talked about how his relationship with his grandparents has grown since he came over this side of the pond.
“Unfortunately with some elements of the media, they will always blame Meghan.”
He continued: “I think Meghan would get blamed for Covid if they had an opportunity.
“So there is never a good time.”
Harry himself confirmed that he had been in contact with his grandparents regularly since he and Meghan left the UK.
He has also spoken to Prince Charles and Prince William since the Oprah interview.
