In the conversation, Prince Edward said that the tension between family members is “very sad.”

“It’s difficult for everyone but that’s families for you…we wish them the very best of luck. It’s a really hard decision.”

He was also asked about the couple naming their child Lilibet after Queen Elizabeth.

“Well, we just wish them all happiness. That’s fantastic news and absolutely, I hope they’re very happy,” he said.

“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. We’ve all had that same spotlight shone on our lives. We’ve been subjected to massive intrusion and all the rest of it. We all deal with it in different ways.”

He also commented on what would have been Prince Philip‘s 100th birthday.

“From a selfish point of view, we would have loved it if he had been here and been with us. But then birthdays were not necessarily his…he didn’t really want all the fuss and bother. He wasn’t really looking forward to the centenary, even if we were. We go ahead and celebrate what might have been and his life and I think we try to turn it into something that’s very positive.”

At the same time, it’s been reported that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are going after a news outlet for a false report about their daughter.
