Oprah comments on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s possible royal reconciliation

Oprah Winfrey looks back on her 2021 “bombshell” interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as it appears a reconciliation between the couple and the royal family may be possible in the wake of Queen Elizabeth’s death.

Promotion at the Toronto Film Festival Sidneya documentary about acting legend Sidney Poitier, Winfrey fielded questions about Harry and Meghan amid their reunion with Prince William and Kate Middleton in England on Saturday.

Asked by In addition if there is hope that the queen’s death will bring the family together, Oprah replied: “I think in all families — you know, my father passed away recently, this summer — and when all the families come together for a joint ceremony, the ritual of your burial dead, there is a chance for peace… and we hope there will be.”

Winfrey distanced herself from the issue when asked about it by best friend Gayle King in an interview with CBS Mornings.

King said many are trying for a reconciliation between the brothers, especially after seeing them together at Windsor Castle. “What do you think?” King asked.

Oprah responded, “I don’t get into people’s family matters, and I certainly… I know, everybody who has experienced some challenges in their families with in-laws or brothers or sisters knows how difficult some of these situations can be. I’m definitely for the royal family is no different. And no one consults me about their family business, so I try to stay out of people’s family business.”

King revealed on the CBS Morning Show that Winfrey, her best friend for decades, ended their conversation, which was supposed to be about Winfrey’s movie, after the Kings asked.

“After that, Oprah says, ‘And, Gayle, that’s the end of this interview,'” King said, though he made it clear there were no hard feelings.

Earlier in their interview, King had asked about Winfrey’s shocking interview with Harry and Meghan in March 2021, which took place after the couple stepped down as senior royals and left England for California. In it, they claimed a member of the royal family allegedly discussed their son Archie’s skin tone and Meghan, who is bisexual, said she had suicidal thoughts during Archie’s pregnancy and was denied royal support, among of many other shocking revelations that undoubtedly worsened the already frozen relations.

King said the interview, which is still frequently reported, is often described as a “bombshell interview” — and asked Winfrey if she agreed with that characterization.

“I was as surprised by the ‘bombshell’ as everyone else,” Winfrey said of the conversation. “I did an interview to give them a platform to tell their story about why they left. That was my number one intention — just clarity: ‘Why. You’re gone; You’re gone;””

He went on to say, “Some of these things that were revealed in that interview were a surprise to me — and those surprises are now referred to as bombshells. But I didn’t set out to do a bombshell interview. I set out to do an interview, to have a conversation, that would allow them to tell their story.”

Over the weekend, Oprah also spoke about the legacy of Queen Elizabeth’s service in an interview with Access to Hollywood.

“Martin Luther King said that the greatest gift anyone can give to the world is service – because greatness is determined by service – and I think what she did was serve her countrymen and serve everyone for 70 years.” , he said. “The sacrifice it takes to make when you’re 25 years old and say, ‘I’m going to offer myself as a sacrifice to my country.’ That’s what he did.”
