- The rumors about an Oscar performance by Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are piling up.
- According to media reports, they should present the Academy Award for the best film.
The rumors have been around for a long time, now it seems to be more concrete. According to a report by the British “The Sun”.Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are to present an award at the Oscars next weekend.
They were officially requested at the end of 2021, explains an unspecified source. Accordingly, it is assumed that the royal couple should present the best film – the most coveted category of the evening. But nothing is fixed yet.
It was originally planned that Harry and Meghan should hand over the award for best actress. However, since the actress Kristen Stewart was nominated for her role as Harry’s mother Princess Diana in the film “Spencer”, this was rejected again. Two years ago, the two were asked to appear at the Oscars, but at the time they categorically refused.
For many years, the British royal family always kept a certain distance. Curtsy and bows and handshakes yes, hugs no. But that changed at the latest with the entry of Duchess Meghan into the royal family.
A definitive commitment is still pending
If they accept, a fiery speech from the two, most likely about the current war in Ukraine, is expected. But the final commitment is still missing. It is also not excluded that only Meghan will come.
Because: An appearance by Harry could be met with resentment, especially in his British homeland. The fact that he’s begging for police protection for a planned trip to London due to security concerns while speaking to a huge audience at the Dolby Theater is at least questionable, they say.
