Prince Charles ‘chuckles’ as he’s asked about Harry and Meghan’s interview in first public appearance since it aired
Prince Charles laughed off questions about his son’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey as he was seen in public for the first time since the special aired in the UK.
On his first public appearance since the show aired in the UK, Charles was asked by waiting reporters what he thought of the programme, but simply “chuckled” and moved on.
The Daily Express’s Richard Palmer tweeted: “He was asked what he thought of the interview. He chuckled and carried on walking.”
Charles, 72, visited a church in north-west London to see its pop-up vaccine site, and talk to people waiting to receive their jab.
Speaking to people through his face mask at Jesus House in Brent Cross, he told one woman from Nigeria: “Oh fantastic, yes, I’ve been there.
“Lots of different ethnic groups.
“Do give them my kind regards next time you speak to them.”
Maziya Marzook, 42, from Harrow, said: “He didn’t bring up anything, he was more interested in how the vaccine was and how we feel.”
Saying he seemed like a “humble” and “nice person”, she added: “It’s good that he comes like this, the encouragement he’s giving.”
Charles has already had his first vaccine. He had coronavirus in March 2020 but only suffered mild symptoms.
The fallout from his son’s interview with Winfrey has continued with the couple’s claims dominating news cycles.
Harry said he felt let down by his father, saying he and Meghan did not get the support they needed.
Harry said: “I feel really let down because he’s been through something similar.
“He knows what pain feels like.”
