"Her [The Queen's] children have given extensive TV interviews, we have seen that," ITV's Lorraine Kelly asked the princess. "Do you think that is the way ahead to modernize the Royal Family or do you just think people should shh?"

Princess Olga replied: "I was told to sit down and shut up and never wash your dirty linen in public, whatever it happens to be. So I think the Queen does it right."

On March 7, Meghan and Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey aired on CBS, which only made things worse between Harry and his family.

During the chat, the couple claimed someone in the royal family was "concerned" over Archie's skin color and that when the former actress felt suicidal, the firm denied her request for help

Additionally, Harry got candid about his relationship with his older brother, Prince William. "I love William to bits. He's my brother. We've been through hell together. But we are on different paths," he said. "The relationship is space. Time heals all things, hopefully."

Just a few days ago, ITV journalist Tom Bradby revealed William and Harry's bond has been broken for quite some time

"It used to be quite a straightforward thing, right, because they weren't arguing and life was simple," Bradby said. "And then it just slowly descended into something that was difficult — personally and publicly — really over the past year and a half."

Harry and William, 38, came face-to-face at Prince Philip's funeral, but it seems like they won't be making up anytime soon

"The idea that Harry's suddenly going to come around to William's way of thinking, and vice versa, I think is a way off," royal expert Katie Nicholl insisted. "I think there do need to be more conversations, there's clearly still a lot of hurt, a lot of resentment, and a degree of mistrust on both parts."
