Is Queen Elizabeth making an attempt to overshadow Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Oprah interview?
The first Sunday in March turns out to be the biggest day of the year for fanatics of the British royal family – and also for anyone who enjoys the greatest awkwardness.
In a move that raised many eyebrows over the course of timing, Westminster Abbey official website posted that on Monday February 22nd Queen Elizabeth the second will deliver her annual Commonwealth Day address on Sunday March 7th. The news will air during a BBC One special titled A Celebration for Commonwealth Day, which replaces the Commonwealth Day personal service that was scheduled for March 8 but was canceled due to the pandemic.
The Queen will appear in a pre-recorded message from Windsor Castle while Prince Charles, Prince William, Kate Middleton and Sophie, Countess of Wessex are ready to take part in the event as well.
And this is where it gets exciting. As royal followers know, March 7th is also the day on which Oprah Winfrey will interview Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for CBS, the couple’s first interview since announcing they are expecting their second child.
