Prince Edward discussed the sad schism that arose between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle following their departure from the royal family.
The Earl of Wessex also commented on the recent quarrel sparked by Meghan and Harry’s daughter Lilibet’s name.
In an interview to BBC, Edward said, “Well, we just wish them all happiness. That’s fantastic news and absolutely, I hope they’re very happy.”
“Of course, you know. I mean it’s . . . there are all sorts of issues and circumstances there. We’ve all been there. I stay way out of it. It’s much the safest place to be,” he added.
“We’ve all had that same spotlight shone on our lives,” Edward continued. “We’ve been subjected to massive intrusion and all the rest of it. We all deal with it in different ways.”
Earlier, the Queen’s youngest son told CNN his thoughts on Harry and Meghan’s exit from the royal family.
“It’s difficult for everyone but that’s families for you,” he said. Expressing understanding of Harry and Meghan’s predicament, he continued, “We wish them the very best of luck. It’s a really hard decision.”
