Whoopi Goldberg questioned whether the Queen is “tuned in” to royal affairs after Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The comedy film Sister Act, featuring Whoopi Goldberg as a marked woman after seeing her gangster boyfriend Vince LaRocca murder an informant, will air on Channel 5 tonight.
When she decides to testify against Vince, the cops send her to a convent in San Francisco, where she struggles to fit in with the nuns’ way of life.
Whoopi Goldberg is recognized for her humorous films, but she has also spoken out on more serious issues. This was evident when she expressed her view on the Royal Family’s tensions between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Ms. McCain said: “The American experiment is the way to go, and if we have two American women, Meghan Markle and Oprah Winfrey, who are single-handedly finishing what George Washington and our revolutionary counterparts did, I’m all for it.”
After an awkward silence, Whoopi simply replied: “OK.”
Meghan said in her Oprah interview that a senior member of the Royal Family expressed concern about her son’s skin color before he was born.
The Duchess also claimed she was denied mental health treatment and that she “didn’t want to be alive anymore” at one point. Charles and his brother William, according to Harry, are “trapped” in the Royal Family.
After the interview aired, Buckingham Palace released a statement saying the allegations had “saddened” the Queen, but that “some recollections may vary.”
Whoopi Goldberg questioned whether the Queen is “in touch” with all of the royal affairs in a March interview.
The actress said on US chat show The View: “I don’t know, I wonder how really connected everybody is.
“If [the Queen] missed it with Diana and she missed it with Meghan maybe she’s not as tuned in as we thought.
“But I think it’ll be interesting to see what happens because it’s kind of rare for her to come out and actually say something.
“And I thought ‘I guess that’s where you’re at but you might want to remind people where you supposedly stand.
“Because you’ve taken up all kinds of positions in the past in the name of the monarchy.
“And granted, she’s not writing all of these things for herself but still I think there’s more to come.
“I don’t think this is quite done yet I think people are really fired up about it.”
Following the Oprah interview, a number of experts commented on how Harry and Meghan’s accusations would damage the monarchy’s image in the long term.
Sarah Gristwood, a historian, journalist, novelist, and Tudor biographer told USA Today: “Charles was damaged back in the Nineties by the ‘War of Wales,’ but in recent years he’s come to look much more convincing as a King-in-waiting.
“But Harry’s words about him particularly seemed to suggest not enough had changed. And that really is a danger for the monarchy.” The crisis “accelerated” the republican movement, said Anna Pasternak, a royal biographer.
