Meghan Markle gives her first TV interview as a ROYAL for documentary 'Queen of the World'
The Duchess of Sussex has reportedly given a long interview to the crew of ITV's 'Queen of the World', a documentary that talks extensively about the Queen as the Commonweath head.
Meghan Markle has given her first interview to the press after her a long hiatus since she became a royal in May earlier this year. The Duchess of Sussex has reportedly given a long interview to the crew of ITV's 'Queen of the World', a documentary that talks extensively about the Queen's role as she became in charge of the Commonwealth.
The film that was produced by Oxford Films will be broadcasted on ITV next month. Along with Markle, Prince Charles, Prince William, Princess Anne and the Countess of Wessex have also provided inputs on the documentary.
The controller of Factual at ITV, Jo Clinton-Davis, said, "The Queen is a unique figure on the world stage, with a huge depth of experience having met more global leaders than any previous British monarch and serving longer than all of them. This film is a rare opportunity to see Her Majesty up close and behind the scenes in this role, which means so much to her and has been so significant for Britain and the Commonwealth."
The executive producer for the documentary Nicolas Kent said, "The Queen is the most well-traveled monarch in history, and it’s been fascinating to see how she has passed on her experience to the younger generations of the royal family. With the Duke and Duchess of Sussex about to embark on their first Commonwealth Tour to Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific exactly 65 years after the Queen’s first Commonwealth Tour, this series could not be more timely."
Meghan has been seen in a very limited number of interviews since things got serious with Prince Harry last year. Her family back at home, however, have not been so paparazzi shy. Meghan Markle's step-sister Samantha Markle recently dished out some advice to actor Wendell Prince on Twitter, who recently went on record saying that Meghan's infamous dad should think before he speaks.
He had said in an interview with Telegraph UK, "If you care about Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, then that should be the first and foremost in your mind before you say anything. If you love your daughter, just love your daughter. It’s not for public consumption." He also got nostalgic about working with Meghan. "We had a moment I cherish,” said the 54-year-old actor, "I was sitting with Meghan in her wedding dress, as we waited for a set-up. We were alone. I said to her, ‘Your life is going to change. It’s going to be amazing, and I’m very happy for you, but I want you to know that I’m your friend, and no matter where you are or what’s going on — if the fishbowl that you’re in ever starts getting to you — you can call me.’ "
Samantha furious about the comment said, "People need to ‘stop sucking’ up without understanding the other side of the story," referring to the sweet words that Wendell had for his former 'Suits' colleague. "Lol. He is an actor. His advice is like a television president telling the White House what to do," she wrote.
