Meghan Markle is accused of pampering Prince Harry while Duke attends an interview with Hoda Kotb.
The Duke of Sussex went for a solo interview on The Today Show, talking about his life as a father, humanitarian and son.
Meghan, who had reportedly left the Netherlands earlier, was not present during the exclusive recording in The Hague amid Invictus Games.
Scoffing at her presence and her constant need to reassure her husband Harry, Daily Mail columnist Jan Moir said: “On this occasion there was no Meghan present to hold Harry’s hand and egg on his bubbling omelette of grief, what His absence added a shiver of excitement to the proceedings as there was always the chance she might burst in from the podium in a £17,000 top and say something mean about Kate’s Easter decorations or the choice of tights,” said moir.
Harry confessed during the same interview that he is Queen’s closest confidante.
“We have a very special relationship, we talk about things she can’t talk to anyone else about,” he said of his meeting in Windsor with his grandmother,” the Duke said.
Moir mocked: “What the hell could the Queen talk to Harry about that she can’t talk to anyone else about? I’ve hurt my brain. Saving chickens? Nude billiards? Did he bring some crystals from the Montecito New Age Store and try realign the royal chakras?
“Maybe he got her to do the weird deep breaths he does every time he arrives in London to help her deal with her grief at the loss of Prince Philip.
“Or by claiming this special relationship, he may have just gotten revenge on his big brother for all those times he was banned from the regular kingcraft sessions William had with the Queen when they were growing up,” she concluded.
