The Queen plans to speak on British television the same day that the Oprah interview with Meghan and Harry appears.

Every year, usually on the second Monday in March, the Commonwealth of Nations celebrates its existence. In 2018, Duchess Meghan (39, "Suits") had the first official appointment with Queen Elizabeth II (94) on this day, last year the service in Westminster Abbey was supposed to be the last official appearance of Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry (36) mark the "Megxit". And this year there will be a particularly interesting overlap.

After the service at Westminster Abbey was canceled for the first time in half a century due to the corona pandemic, the Queen is now planning a TV show to celebrate the day. As reported by the Guardian, among others, the program is intended to underline the importance and importance of the Commonwealth. The program also includes numerous other royals, including Prince Charles (72), Duchess Camilla (73), Prince William (38), Duchess Kate (39) and Countess Sophie (56).

The special thing about this announcement is the timing of the broadcast: The special Royal Show to celebrate Commonwealth Day is to be shown on BBC One on March 7th – just a few hours before 1:00 a.m., UK time At night the eagerly awaited interview by Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry with Oprah Winfrey (67) will be broadcast in America at prime time. This has already been announced as particularly "intimate" and "extensive" and is intended to describe her experiences with the British royal family and the "Megxit".

Just a few days ago, the royal family announced that the two would definitely no longer return to the royal family as active members. It was agreed that the "Megxit" made it impossible to continue to carry the "responsibilities and duties that come with a life in the service of the public". With this, Prince Harry also loses his military dignity, for which he is reported to have fought until the end.
