Since the departure of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, controversies around the royal family have multiplied. But for Sophie of Wessex, wife of Edward of Wessex, the last son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, the family is still united. For her, the members of royalty form “always a family, whatever happens”, she assured as reported by the Mirror. “We are still a family, no matter what happens we always will be.” Within this royal family, the couple saw their role a little evolved since the Megxit. “We just kept doing what we’re doing. And then all of a sudden there’s a bit of a break and things have changed a bit,” she said. With the departure of Meghan Markle from Prince Harry, the spotlight has been more on them. “Naturally, the media is looking for people to fill what is called the void.”
But it appears that the media’s sudden interest in their lives doesn’t bother her. “If people want to be more careful about what we do, then so much the better.” The mother also spoke of the disappearance of her stepfather, Prince Philip. Since his death, his children do not seem to have come to terms with this idea. Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn, “are still expecting their grandfather to arrive in his green Land Rover,” she said.
Sophie of Wessex spoke at length with Prince Harry
At the same time, the Countess of Wessex let it be known that she had had a “long conversation” with Prince Harry after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral in April 2021. She spoke at length with him and does not appear to be him resenting statements that he may have faced Oprah Winfrey. With her husband, she is on good terms with the Sussexes.
