Arthur sat down with Piers
Morgan for a revealing interview in which he expressed his surprise that King
Charles III had reached out to Prince Harry and Meghan
Markle in his first address – and that the couple had been invited to join
the Prince and Princess of Wales outside Windsor Castle.
He said: “When Prince
[Charles] said he loved Harry and Meghan in his speech that shook me as well.
Then when Meghan got out of the car, I was amazed. But obviously, William has got
to do something about it. He spoke to his brother and said, ‘Let’s make a
combined effort here.’
did it because if Meghan had turned up for the funeral on Monday all the papers
would be talking about Meghan and the King does not want that. He wants it all
about The Queen and nothing else. No distractions. Whether they will get back
together who knows, there is a big rift between the brothers.”
Arthur was also asked about
the new King and his relationship with him over the years.
The foursome stepped out to view public tributes to the Queen
“He [King Charles] always
said, ‘History will judge me.’ And now, people are seeing him for the man he
is,” he replied.
“The man I’ve been
working with… He’s a fantastic person. He knows everybody in the world, every
Prime Minister, every Head of State. He’s so well connected. He’s travelled the
world. We were in Rwanda in June with all the heads of government there and
they all pay great homage to him.”
Arthur continued: “The
reason I still work, Piers, is because I work with this man and The Queen, the
new Queen Camilla. They are just fabulous people. I really enjoy it. If I’ve
got a job with say the King, the next one will probably be on Wednesday when
they follow the coffin. I will look to him, but he will be solid.”
