Oprah Winfrey says she had no idea her revealing interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would be so impactful — and she was surprised that Markle “went all the way there” by accusing the royals of racial bias.

The 67-year-old opened up about the March broadcast on Nancy O’Dell’s new TalkShopLive streaming show.

“I had no idea that it would have the reverberating impact that it has had and continues to have,” the media mogul said.

“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,” Winfrey continued of the pair.

The talk show host said she was “surprised” when the biracial Duchess of Sussex said that royals had raised concerns over the darkness of baby Archie’s skin.

“What? You’re going there? You’re going all the way there,” Winfrey exclaimed to O’Dell.

“The reason why it was such a powerful interview … was when you have somebody else who is willing to be as open, as vulnerable, as truthful as they were,” she told O’Dell.

Oprah also explained how great lengths were taken to make sure no one in the crew leaked the content of the more than three hour interview before it went to air, so that the couple’s remarks couldn’t be “misconstrued.”

Those New Paparazzi Photos of Meghan Markle & Archie May Have Been Intended to Anger Kate Middleton Fans

Yahoo Entertainment 24 April, 2021 - 01:10am

One Twitter user noted that the paparazzi shots of Markle and Archie out and about in Montecito, California were taken on Wednesday and that it was possible “the Murdoch press purchased it” in order “to coincide with The Prince Louis birthday photo.” They believe the timing was “intentional.” Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, which includes U.K. publications like The Sun and The Times, along with U.S. publications like the New York Post, traditionally features stories that are pro-monarchy. The exclusive photos of Meghan and Archie were shared by the New York Post‘s Page Six, so many Sussex fans see this as a tactical move by the media.

What both sides have to remember is that the media is profiting off this royal feud and likes to stoke the flames as much as possible because it keeps everyone buying their publications and clicking on their links. Markle was quite adamant in the Oprah Winfrey interview that the media is shaping “a narrative of a hero and a villain” and honestly, everyone is buying into it. “She’s a good person,” the Duchess of Sussex told Winfrey about Middleton. “So much of what I have seen play out is this idea of polarity where if you love me, you don’t have to hate her. And if you love her, you don’t need to hate me.”

In just the past 24 hours we've gotten a glimpse of Prince Louis getting ready for his first day of Preschool. A couple of hours after the official IG post from Kensington Palace Meghan Markle and son Archie were spotted on an errand run. Archie is certainly much more grown-up than the last time we got to see him.

"Taken earlier this week by The Duchess before he left for his first day of nursery, The Duke and Duchess are pleased to share a new image of Prince Louis."

For those not as familiar with some of these British school terms it looks like the Prince is headed off to pre-school in his newly minted red bike that surprisingly features no training wheels.

A couple of days back in the wake of Prince Phillip's passing the couple had also posted a picture of the Queen and the Duke with some of their great-grandchildren. Either these kids are immensely well behaved or that picture took a couple of tries.

Certainly, it seems that Archie is growing up in a much less formal environment compared to his cousins. Some of those UK trips for Harry's son could potentially be eye-opening experiences in the future. By the way, is she sending Archie off to preschool too, or what's with the backpack?

The relationship between Harry and the rest of the family is still up in the air. With conflicting reports indicating that he may or may not have spoken directly to his father or the Queen about that Oprah situation.

Prince Harry, Prince William like 'wounded animals' since damaging Oprah interview

Geo News 23 April, 2021 - 06:47am

Royal author Anna Pasternal told Vanity Fair that both the Sussexes and Cambridges are like "wounded animals".

In the interview the Duke and Duchess of Sussex levied harsh claims against the royal family which included racism and denying Meghan of getting help to deal with her suicidal thoughts.

At one point Harry said that his brother was "trapped" by the institution.

“Both sides are like wounded animals," she said. 

“Harry said there’s been an awful lot of hurt.

“Well, there’s been an awful lot of hurt now on the side of the Windsors from this interview.”
