Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, died Friday at the age of 99, Buckingham Palace announced. While reporting the news, "Fox & Friends" host Brian Kilmeade appeared to make a link between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey and Prince Philip's death.

Kilmeade noted that the interview, during which Markle and Harry detailed their decision to step back from royal life and made several bombshell revelations including claims of racism at the heart of the royal family, aired last month while Prince Philip was in the hospital receiving treatment for an infection.

"There are reports that he [Philip] was enraged after the interview and the fallout from the interview with Oprah Winfrey, so here he is trying to recover and then he gets hit with that," Kilmeade said.

Kilmeade continued to draw links between the interview with Winfrey and Prince Philip's death later in the show and made reference to comments made by Piers Morgan, who resigned from his presenting role on "Good Morning Britain" last month after the show's network, ITV, received a record-breaking number of complaints about his criticisms of Markle.

Kilmeade said: "Piers Morgan was saying on his morning show, which he famously walked off of, is like 'Really? Your grandfather is in the hospital, you know he's not doing well, is this really the time you have to put out this interview?' Evidently, it definitely added to his stress."

Prince Philip was discharged from King Edward VII's Hospital after a four-week stay in March. At the time, Buckingham Palace released a statement saying he received treatment for an infection and also underwent a procedure for a pre-existing heart condition.
