Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Oprah Winfrey interview divides opinion – Deadline

Oprah Winfrey promised us some shocking revelations, and she didn’t lie. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry dropped bombs in their hit CBS interview with the legendary American presenter – and judging by the reactions to the shoot, you’re either with Team Harry and Meghan or against them.

During the brutally frank discussion, Markle revealed that she was considering suicide because her mental health had been so bad during her time in the UK, while saying that she was also asked about the color of skin of his son. Other revelations include their second child will be a daughter and Prince Charles stopped taking calls from Prince Harry at the height of their split with the Royal Family.

There was universal agreement that the interview had extracted shocking moments and there was widespread praise for Winfrey, who helped expose the monumental fault lines in the British Royal Family. But reactions to the content of Markle and Prince Harry’s comments were predictably polarized.
