‘He must be sorry for what he did’: Sharon Osborne discusses Prince Harry’s actions during Queen’s Jubilee
Sharon Osbourne said Prince Harry ‘must be sorry for what he did’ after he and Meghan Markle were separated from the rest of the royal family and even booed as they left St Paul’s Cathedral in London during 70th anniversary celebrations reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
The couple attended the Service for Thanksgiving for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
After the service, the couple did not attend the official function and were seen and heard leaving the cathedral to a chorus of booing from the crowd.
It was a rare high-profile appearance for the couple in the UK as they announced their intention to step down from royal duties in 2020.
The pair also sat down for an infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey and tried to capitalize on their celebrity by striking big deals with streaming giants Spotify and Netflix.
Osbourne, 69, joined the Fox News Channel’s coverage of the celebrations along with Piers Morgan and Fox News hosts Ainsley Earhardt and Martha MacCallum.
The former co-host of ‘The Talk’ told Fox News: ‘The Royal Family has always been like a Shakespearean play to me. I have to tell you that when I saw them before, I felt sorry for them. And the way they were separated from the family.”

Kate and William were seen talking to Prince Charles and Camilla in the cathedral, but Harry and Meghan were in another section with cousins and behind his aunt and uncle.
Osbourne, who was born in London, said her mother was a big fan of the royal family all her life.
‘I feel sorry for him’ [Prince Harry] because I think there must be a big part of him that is sorry,” she said, referring to Meghan and Harry’s outspoken criticism of the royal family and their very public split.
In that bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Markle made a series of claims, including that an undisclosed member of the royal family was concerned about the skin color of their yet-unborn child, Archie.
“I mean, can you imagine how he felt yesterday with all the family in that procession and normally he would have been there on one of those horses with his uniform and everything,” Osbourne said in reference to the Trooping of the Color- procession of June 2. †
Prince William’s wife, Duchess of Cornwall Kate Middleton, accompanied her children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, in the procession that kicked off the Queen’s Jubilee celebration.
It was followed by the family joining the Queen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace as members of the Royal Air Force flew by. Harry and Meghan were not invited to the balcony.
Osbourne found this particularly striking, because Prince Harry must have thought: ‘My children are not going to grow up with their cousins. It must have an effect on you if they don’t have cousins, aunts, uncles.’

Osbourne and Morgan also discussed how they both lost their jobs in the wake of Harry and Meghan’s Oprah interview.
Morgan walked out of his job on ‘Good Morning, Britain’ after his criticism of the interview, while Osbourne was unceremoniously expelled from ‘The Talk’ after defending Morgan.
Morgan joked, “Sharon was on a show called ‘The Talk and when she talked, she got fired!’
Osbourne said that in the wake of her resignation and allegations of being a racist, she had seen a therapist and received mental help.

Osbourne said losing her job at ‘The Talk’ was ‘life-changing’
Osbourne said it was “life-changing.”
“I am not a victim, but it was very hard on my family,” she said.
Morgan joined in: “It’s disgusting what happened to you. I take the blame, but Sharon is a good friend, we go way back.’
Osbourne reiterated that her criticism of Markle had nothing to do with her background, it was just her actions.
Morgan made one of Markle’s claims during the couple’s Oprah interview, in which she said she married the prince a few days before their official ceremony in a secret ceremony led by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Markle said in the interview, “You know, we got married three days before our wedding. Nobody knows. The vows we made in our room are the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury.’
A few days after the interview aired, a spokesperson for the couple admitted that the couple had only exchanged “personal vows” that did not involve marriage.
Morgan said, ‘You know that secret wedding? That was not true at all. She just says all these things.’
Osbourne also expressed her ‘shock’ that Johnny Depp has won his legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard
Morgan compared Markle’s comments in the couple’s interview with Oprah Winfrey to some recent testimony from Amber Heard in her legal battle with Johnny Depp.
At the defamation trial, Heard said she never kept her promise to donate $7 million to charity because Depp filed a lawsuit against her.
Morgan argued that these comments undermined both Markle and Heard’s credibility with the public.
Osbourne admitted she is friends with Depp, saying that: “I was surprised he actually won. I was. I mean, I’m glad he won, but I was shocked.”
Osbourne said she was surprised the jury didn’t side with Heard because she had been so emotional during the trial
She said she assumed that because Heard was so emotional during the trial, the jury would side with the actress.
Osbourne said the couple’s marriage was “very hit and miss.” Listen, I’ve been through it. I know that behavior. It was ugly. It was all very ugly.’
On June 1, a jury in Fairfax County, Virginia awarded Depp more than $10 million in damages after the judge capped the verdict.
Both Morgan and Osbourne are back on TV as presenters of individual shows on the recently launched UK station TalkTV.
Morgan said, “My message to Meghan was a nice try, we’re back. Meanwhile they are being booed in front of a cathedral this morning.’
In another part of the interview, Osbourne expressed her admiration for Prince Charles by saying that the heir apparent ‘has had a very hard time’.
Osbourne said, ‘People always go back to Diana and stuff, but that was a Shakespearean tragedy. You couldn’t write that story. He’s not getting the respect he deserves.’
