Prince Charles Was Just Asked About Meghan and Harry's Oprah Interview on Camera

Charles was carrying out a royal engagement at the time.

Prince Charles made his first public appearance in the wake of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah, visiting a vaccine pop-up clinic in London. While at the clinic, Charles was asked by a reporter "Sir, can I ask, what did you think of the interview?"...and apparently smiled while saying nothing. The moment was reported on by royal correspondents at the scene:

The royals haven't issued a public comment on the Sussexes' tell-all, but royal reporter Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight that "William is devastated by this interview," and said that a source close to Prince Charles told her he was "despairing over the interview" a few days before it aired.

In the tell-all, Harry spoke candidly about his relationship with his father, saying he feels "really let down" and that Charles stopped taking his calls after he stepped down from senior royal duties. "When we were in Canada, I had three conversations with my grandmother and two conversations with my father before he stopped taking my calls,” he said, explaining that their relationship has since remained tense.

"There's a lot to work through there, you know?" Harry said. "I feel really let down, because he's been through something similar. He knows what pain feels like, and this is—and Archie's his grandson. But, at the same time, you know, I—of course I will always love him, but there's a lot of hurt that's happened. And—and I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship."
