NPR Sets The Record Straight On The Timing Of Meghan Markle’s Interview

After the story in The Times about Meghan Markle’s bullying claims and the rumored explosion between Prince Harry and Prince William, a previously recorded NPR interview with the Duchess of Sussex about her children’s book, “The Bench,” added fuel to the raging royal family fire.

“NPR Weekend host Lourdes Navarro defended some of the criticism against Meghan regarding the NPR interview. @lourdesgnavarro tweeted, “TO BE CLEAR, since there is a lot of misinformation, #MeghanMarkle, the Duchess of Sussex, granted this interview BEFORE the birth of her daughter Lilibet. And the date of airing was based on the fact that we are a Sunday show. It’s not based on whatever is happening in London.” Navarro continued, “Plus, this is #FathersDay and #TheBench by Meghan #DuchessofSussex is a tribute to her husband #PrinceHarry and their son. So the timing is…about that.”

Associate Producer of “NPR Weekend,” Samantha Balaban, who interviewed Meghan for the segment, has not addressed the backlash as of this writing.
