Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah Winfrey will not be delayed if Prince Philip's condition worsens, according to reports.

Harry, 36, and his 39 year old pregnant wife Meghan, 39, have come under fire for sitting down for the tell-all chat with legendary presenter Oprah on the same day that Harry's grandfather was admitted to hospital.

The 99 year old has now been moved from one London hospital to another, which specialises in heart complications, just days before the interview is broadcast.

But it has now been claimed that the producers of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's interview special are "refusing" to pull the airing of the interview "irrespective of Prince Philip's condition."

An insider said: "CBS has sold millions of dollars worth of advertising around the interview, but bosses are aware of the delicacy of the Duke's heath.

"They have no loyalty to the Royal Family, although some feel as though they do to Harry and Meghan.

"For it to run if Philip's condition worsened would be like setting off a diplomatic bomb. It would be grossly insensitive and hugely disrespectful," the source continued to tell Mirror Online.

In the teaser for the chat, which as of yet has no UK air date, Prince Harry emotionally reveals his "biggest concern was history repeating itself," referencing the tragic 1997 death of his mother Princess Diana.

After it was announced that Harry and Meghan had made the decision to permanently step down as working members of the Royal family last month, he revealed in the clip that he "can't begin to imagine" what Diana was faced to go through alone.

"For me, I'm just really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you with my wife by my side."

After an image of Princess Diana alongside a young Prince Harry appeared on screen, he continued to emotionally speak about his mum.

He added: "Because I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like for her going through this process by herself all those years ago because it has been unbelievably tough for the two of us but at least we had each other."

Harry discussed his decision to "step back" from royal duties in an interview with James Corden which aired last week.

He said: "It was never walking away. It was stepping back rather than stepping down. It was a really difficult environment, which I think a lot of people saw.

"We never walked away and as far as I'm concerned, whatever decisions are made on that side, I will never walk away."
