Edward, the Earl of Wessex, also spoke to BBC News about his mother, Harry and Meghan. In the interview, also released on June 10, he was asked for his thoughts on the royal family’s difficult few months, most notably the Sussexes decision to open up to Oprah in a joint tell-all and then, again, in her and Harry’s Apple TV+ docuseries.
“I stay way out of it,” Edward responded. “It’s much the safest place to be.”
When asked if he felt “any sadness about the way it’s played out,” Edward responded, “Oh, of course. You know, I mean, it’s- there are all sorts of issues and circumstances there. But we’ve all been there.”
He was also asked for his thoughts on the birth of Harry and Meghan’s daughter. “Well, we just wish them all happiness,” he said. “That’s fantastic news and yeah, absolutely, I hope they’re very happy.”
