‘Sit down and shut up’ – Queen’s cousin targets Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Brighton News

The Queen’s cousin has targeted royals by telling royals to ‘sit down and shut up’.

Princess Olga Romanoff made the remark when she appeared on Monday morning’s Lorraine installment.

Princess Olga, cousin of Queen Elizabeth II, was speaking on ITV via a video link from her home in Kent where she was speaking about her upcoming documentary.

The first episode of “The Queen and Her Cousins” will air at 9pm tonight (May 10) on ITV and will explore the Queen and her family with Alexander Armstrong.

The series will follow Olga as she tracks down connections, including Lord Ivar Mountbatten to discuss royal ties and heritage.

His comments come at an odd time for the Queen and the Royal Family who have been in the public eye more than usual lately.

Tragically, the Queen’s husband Prince Philip passed away at the age of 99 last month.

Their son, Prince Andrew, has recently spoken publicly about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, which has sparked criticism of the Duke of York.

Most recently, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made headlines around the world with an extraordinary interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Eager to hear Princess Olga’s opinion on these public interviews with the modern royal family, Lorraine asked, “The Queen has this stuff, doesn’t she?

“She never complains. Never explain. It also comes from the queen mother.

“But his children and grandchildren have given a lot of TV interviews. We’ve seen this. Do you think that’s the way forward to somehow modernize the royal family?

“Or do you think people should just shut up?”

Olga replied, “Well, I was taught to ‘sit down and shut up’ and never wash your dirty laundry in public, no matter what.

“I think the queen is doing it well.”

Lorraine nodded, “Yes. She gets along well.”

Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah was watched by millions in the UK in March when it aired to a UK audience in March.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have plunged the monarchy into crisis, accusing an anonymous royal of racism, suggesting the family were jealous of Meghan and revealing that they were considering suicide during her pregnancy.

Meghan and Harry hit the institution and the royals in a series of stunning admissions during their interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Lorraine airs weekdays from 9am on ITV1 just after Good Morning Britain.
