Whoopi Goldberg doesn't want to hear your opinions on Kate Middleton.

On Wednesday, March 13, during a chat about Princess Kate, Goldberg, who is 68 years old, pointed fingers at her cohosts for adding to the commotion surrounding the topic.

Goldberg admitted, "We are to blame for this because we believed in it." She was visibly upset as she pointed out that her cohosts couldn't grasp the seriousness of the situation because "you haven't experienced this yourself."

Goldberg expressed her concern about the impact of buying into certain beliefs, especially when it affects family or children. She emphasized that it is not enjoyable or amusing, but rather irritating.

Despite Goldberg's stance, Sara Haines from The View tried to convey her need for greater openness from Buckingham Palace regarding the issue.

Haines, who is 46 years old, expressed concern about the negative impact of media frenzy on their family. He suggested that they should release a video reassuring everyone that they are okay.

Goldberg, on the other hand, was still puzzled and disagreed with Haines' viewpoint.

Goldberg expressed his confusion, saying, "That’s the part I don’t get! Why do you think it’s important to them what you need?"

Cohost Alyssa Farah Griffin sided with Haines, proposing that all the talk about Kate’s well-being could potentially be proven wrong with ease.

Farah Griffin, 34, emphasized the importance of the issue, stating, "There is a reason we care about this." She highlighted the contrasting treatment of Princess Diana, Meghan Markle, and Prince Harry, expressing concern for the unseen Princess and the lack of clarity in the stories. Griffin suggested that a simple solution would be for the Palace to address the situation directly on camera.

Regarding the edited Mother's Day photo shared by Kate on Sunday, March 10, which sparked further speculation about the well-being of the Princess, Goldberg refrained from jumping to conclusions based on rumors.

Goldberg suggested that Kate took a picture and mentioned that certain features looked off, prompting her to make adjustments.

Goldberg theorized that the photo in question was Kate's attempt to steer the narrative in a different direction.

"I think she took the picture and gave it to [the Palace] because she wanted to control the narrative," she explained.

Despite the tense discussion about Kate on The View, Goldberg tried to diffuse the situation and wrap up the segment.

“This is all speculation and we’re having fun,” she noted. “Just know that we know that we don’t know.”

Editor's P/S:

The discussion on "The View" regarding Kate Middleton's well-being highlights the media's influence and the importance of responsible reporting. Whoopi Goldberg's concerns about fueling speculation and the potential harm it can cause are valid. While the public's curiosity is understandable, it's crucial to respect the privacy of individuals, especially those in the royal family. The suggestion by some cohosts that Buckingham Palace should provide video proof of Kate's well-being raises questions about the media's expectations and the royals' duty to appease public demand.

Goldberg's perspective also emphasizes the need to be cautious about accepting rumors and edited content at face value. The photo of Kate Middleton that sparked speculation could have been altered or taken out of context. It's essential to verify information and consider alternative explanations before making assumptions and spreading unfounded stories. The media has a responsibility to report accurately and avoid contributing to sensationalism that can have real-life consequences for the individuals involved.
