Oprah Winfrey Said Even She Was ‘Suprised’ By Meghan And Harry’s Claims Against The Royal Family.

OPRAH WINFREY has said Meghan Markle and Prince Harry wanted to tell their side of the story in the bombshell interview but even she was “surprised” by the allegations they made against The Royal Family. The 67-year-old mogul discussed the secrecy around the interview with Nancy O’Dell this week, stressing how important it was that nothing leaked before it aired on CBS so that no clip could be ‘exploited.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat down with the US chat show legend last month and discussed their decision to step back as senior members of the Royal Family. In the interview on Nancy O’Dell’s channel on talkshoplive, Oprah said she had “no idea” it would “reverberate” in the way it has done.


When Oprah was asked if she was ‘surprised’ that Harry and Meghan were so open and forthcoming in the interview, Oprah admitted that she was- she was particularly shocked she said when Meghan said that royal family members had had ‘conversations with Harry about how dark [Archie’s] skin might be when he’s born.’

It was at that moment that Oprah’s jaw dropped, and she paused for a moment before incredulously responding, ‘What?’ — a reaction that has since become a meme on social media. ‘I’m like, “What? You’re going there? You’re going all the way there,”‘ Oprah said of her thought process at that time.

Describing how the meeting was set up, Oprah said that she had only texted with Harry and Meghan before the actual interview, and her only understanding was that they were only focused on sharing the truth with the rest of the world.

‘Whenever I’m doing interviews with anybody for anything that is significant, I have a conversation with them before. I didn’t see Harry and Meghan before but I did text them and say intention is very important to me, tell me what your intention is, so that we can be aligned in our goal. And our shared intention was the truth. They wanted to be able to tell their story and tell it in such a way that allowed them to be as truthful as possible.’

Oprah added: “The reason why it was such a powerful interview — first of all, I know how to ask questions, and you [Nancy] know how to ask questions, we all know how to do our jobs, but what makes it powerful is when you have someone else who is willing to be as open, as vulnerable, as truthful, as they were.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!. Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.


  1. Megan was and still is an actress. So she knows how to say things that will shock. I was once so unhappy and frustrated with my marriage that I took some pills to end it all, but unfortunately or not it did not work, and things never got better. But at least she has found a man who is so enamoured by her that he will believe anything she says. I just wonder how long it will last.

  2. “Her only understanding was that they were only focused on sharing the truth with the rest of the world.” Why can’t people understand – this was her version, her opinions. This does not mean it is the truth until you have heard both sides of the story! The word ‘truth’ is being heavily mis-used at the moment. Given how many time Meghan clearly told untruths (subsequently proved as such, even by the Archbishop Of Canterbury) during this interview, I am inclined not to believe that what she says is ‘the truth’. If she was not mixed race, I suspect Oprah may not have believed her either.

  3. In addition to what John said….25/4/21 @ 19.08…..Meghan has problems with the family she was born into, who tend not to believe too much she say`s?…..and given the proven lies she came out with in her interview, I am amazed at the amount of sympathy she attracts.
