Prince Philip would have been well aware of Prince Harry and Meghan's Oprah interview despite recovering in hospital at the time, an expert has said.
The royal expert has claimed that the outspoken 99-year-old royal "would have had a few fruity words to say about it".
At the time the couple went on TV, Prince Phillip was in hospital so would have been recuperating when allegations were made about the Firm.
Claims one Royal Family member made a racist comment and the difficulties within the family would have all been heard by Prince Phillip.
Royal expert Roya Nikkhah believes that the Queen would have been keeping Prince Phillip abreast of family affairs during his month in hospital, writes The Mirror.
While the Queen is the head of the monarchy it is still very much understood that Prince Philip is the grandee within the family.
Speaking to Royalty TV's The Royal Beat, she said: “We hear from people close to The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh that she still discusses family matters with him and still sees him as the head of the family, behind the scenes.
"The character that Prince Philip is, I don’t think for a second that he won’t have been reading the papers in the hospital.
"I suspect he would have known a lot of what was going on. I think he would have had a few fruity words to say about the Oprah interview, put it that way."
During the programme, the Mirror's royal editor Russell Myers added: "Prince Philip probably wanted to bash some heads together I would imagine. He is not one for any nonsense.
"I'm sure his advice would be ‘everyone needs to settle down and stop sniping at each other’.”
Ingrid Seward, the editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, believes Philip may have compared Harry to his mum, Princess Diana.
She said: "[Prince Philip] had a run in with Diana towards the end of her life, so you can imagine the things he might have said.”

Another of the claims the couple said in their interview was that Meghan was denied help for her mental health after saying she had "suicidal thoughts".
Roya says she was confused by the comments as Harry is so passionate about the issue.
She said: “Harry is the most literate and clued-up person on mental health that I have ever met, going back many years.
"He has every single organisation plugged into [mental health] at his fingertips. He talks to them all the time. He knows about mental health.
"Which is why I was so struck and confused by those comments he made in the interview that he didn’t know where to turn.”
