Inside What Prince Philip Knows About Harry And Meghan's Interview

Prince Philip was released from the hospital after a month-long stay and a successful heart surgery for a pre-existing condition, according to BBC. The palace released a statement that read, in part: "His Royal Highness wishes to thank all the medical staff who looked after him... and everyone who has sent their good wishes." The Duke of Edinburgh was "said to be in good spirits" as he arrived home. Since Philip was in the hospital, a lot has been going on. His grandson, Prince Harry, and Harry's wife, Meghan Markle, took part in a tell-all interview that uncovered some potentially damaging information about the royal family. 

In the interview, claims were made that during Meghan's first pregnancy, unnamed members of the royal family were concerned about the potential skin tone of Harry and Meghan's rarely seen son (via CBS). Shortly after, Harry made sure to clear his grandfather's name in the speculation pool. According to TMZ, Harry revealed that it was not his grandfather, nor his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, that made the comments. Now, many are wondering just how much Philip knows of what's gone on — and what's been said. Read on to find out the answer.

Prince Philip knows some, but not all, when it comes to Harry and Meghan's interview

Prince Philip may have spent the past month under the weather, but that doesn't mean he's been living under a rock. Royal commentator Katie Nicholl chatted with Australia's 9Honey about how much Philip knows about the interview, and how the royal family is going about sharing information with him. Of course, no one wants to stress him out after what he's just been through, so it's being done very carefully. "The family [is] very keen that he's not aware of the full extent of the interview," Nicholl told the outlet, adding that "efforts were made to protect him from the full force of the fallout."

Nicholl went on to say that while everyone is relieved that Philip has been released from the hospital, there is still a great deal of concern surrounding his health. "He did look very, very frail in the backseat," she explained, describing paparazzi photos of Philip's car ride home from the hospital. As of this writing, it is unknown if Prince Harry has spoken to his grandfather since he was released from King Edward VII hospital.
