Harry and Meghan’s Oprah interview could spark royal war not seen since Princess Diana’s Panorama bombshell - PerthNow

It was 1995 when a forlorn Princess Diana sat opposite BBC journalist Martin Bashir and became the first royal to wage war on the world’s most famous family.

In an interview watched by a sixth of the world’s population, the Princess let loose in the most damning way possible — revealing juicy details of their respective affairs, questioning Charles’ ability to be king and accusing the royals of making life “difficult” for her.

“I think every strong woman in history’s had to walk down a similar path and I think it’s the strength that causes the confusion and the fear. Why is she strong? Where does she get it from? Where is she taking it? Where is she going to use it?” she said at the time.

Any boy did she use it! For viewers, it was the television moment of a decade. For the royals it was the beginning of an ugly feud between the Firm and its most popular former employee.

Weeks later, the Queen ordered Charles and Diana to divorce, stripped Diana of her HRH status and cut off her security privileges. There were no “conscious uncouplings” in the nineties, the relationship was destroyed, never to be repaired.

Sound familiar?

Nearly three decades later, enter another strong woman — a TV star at that —- to invoke a royal star power not seen since Di-mania in the 1980s.

While there was no royal divorce (sorry, New Idea), there was unrest from the start — refusing to abide by protocol, rumblings of a rift with William and Kate and a obvious intention to move away from tradition.

And now the couple are about to let loose. Wearing Diana’s diamond tennis bracelet in a nod to her late mother-in-law, Meghan will sit down with Oprah, having been already stripped of her HRH and royal patronages.

The couple’s unpopular mis-steps with the British public will never see Meghan realise the adoration enjoyed by the “People’s Princess”. But with the added clout of Harry by her side, the bun fight on both sides is set to erupt into an all out war the likes of which we’ve seen already.

We’ve heard Harry air his fears of “history repeating itself” with his young family if he didn’t leave the firm. The airing of their family’s dirty laundry is only the start of it.

Let's block ads! (Why?)
