Whoopi Goldberg has added her voice to those casting doubt on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s claim that they were involved in a “near-catastrophic car chase” with paparazzi on Tuesday night in New York.

View the moderator shared her thoughts on the incident during Thursday’s episode of View.

Goldberg said she thought “a few goofy things” happened with the royal couple, but not a car chase.

“Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were followed by paparazzi as they left the Ziegfeld Theater. Their spokesperson called it a ‘near-catastrophic car chase.’ Others said it wasn’t bad,” Goldberg told the audience.

She then crushed the statement, which read: ‘This relentless chase, which lasted over two hours, resulted in multiple near misses involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD officers.’

Goldberg told the audience, “I think the people of New York know that if it were possible to have car chases in New York, we would all get to the theater on time.”

THE sister act The star added that she thought the couple’s rep was confused.

“I think their spokesperson referenced something that you would typically refer to in Los Angeles,” she said. “That’s where you have lawsuits. This is where you can move at high speed.

The EGOT winner admitted she believed the pair were “dealing with aggressive paparazzi”, but a chase “just doesn’t work in New York”.

Panelist Joy Behar agreed, saying the streets of New York City were too congested with traffic for a chase.

“Sometimes I’m in the city and I hear an ambulance trying to get through and I think, ‘that person is dead,'” Behar said.

But Sunny Hostin disagreed. “No one ever claimed there was a high-speed chase,” Hostin said.

She added that there were scooters involved in the incident, and Harry and Meghan were probably worried because his mother, Princess Diana, was killed in a car accident in 1997 while being chased by police. paparazzi in Paris.

“When you look at a situation like this, where his mother died in a catastrophic car chase…I wouldn’t want to be in a situation where e-bikes and sedans aggressively follow me around the city,” she said.

Goldberg then released a clip of New York City Mayor Eric Adams downplaying Harry and Meghan’s statement.

“I would find it hard to believe there was a two-hour high-speed chase,” Adams told a reporter who asked about the incident at a news conference.

Still, he said even a 10-minute chase would be dangerous in New York.

“We have a lot of traffic, a lot of movement, a lot of people using our streets. Any kind of high-speed chase involving something of that nature is inappropriate,” Adams said.
