We don't know about you guys, but we're still trying to process the Duke and Duchess of
Sussex's plans to step back as senior members of the royal family.
That's because the move announced Jan. 8, 2020 to great fanfare has caused a ton of
drama in Buckingham Palace, especially concerning the queen, who is reportedly outraged by her
grandson's decision to jump ship.
Making matters even juicier?
Every person on the freaking planet seems to have an opinion about the situation, including
media mogul Oprah Winfrey.
The television vet, who is supposedly close with Meghan Markle's mom, Doria Ragland, and
was a guest at their May 2018 wedding, weighed in on the situation via a conversation with
People.
Although we're not surprised by Winfrey's support of "Megxit," we are curious to know
whether she advised the couple on their future plans.
Pour yourself a spot of tea because we're about to reveal the real role the billionaire
played in this situation.
"This should be good."
Before we dive into what Oprah Winfrey really thinks about Megxit, let's first touch on
the speculation that she advised Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on how to build their brand
outside of the royal family.
According to Page Six, Winfrey supposedly chatted with the couple regarding their "Sussex
Royal" trademark, which they've used as a brand, quote, "on more than 100 properties
in the UK, including clothing, stationery, photographs and educational and charitable
endeavors with predicted revenue of over $500 million."
Considering Winfrey is reportedly worth a cool $3.5 billion, we wouldn't blame the Duke
and Duchess of Sussex for seeking out her advice.
Winfrey told People she did not personally advise Meghan and Harry about their emancipation
from Buckingham Palace, but that doesn't mean the new parents don't have her full support.
She told the outlet:
"Meghan and Harry do not need my help figuring out what's best for them.
I care about them both and support whatever decisions they make for their family."
Just one month before Meghan Markle gave birth to their adorable son, Archie, Oprah Winfrey
sat down for an interview with her bestie Gayle King on CBS This Morning to discuss
the Duchess of Sussex's treatment in the press.
Winfrey told King:
"I think she's being portrayed unfairly, and I feel that if people really knew her, they
would know that she is not only everything that we perceive her as being graceful and
dynamic and holding that position but she just has a wonderful, warm, giving, loving
heart."
"I see all the crazy press around her.
I think it's really unfair."
Winfrey also gave the former Suits star a huge compliment.
Winfrey claimed that Markle, quote, "actually does not read anything."
We assume "anything" refers to all the tabloid chatter about Markle's looks, her parenting,
her marriage, and her standing with the royal family.
"I think that's remarkable - that in spite of all that's going on, she does not read
anything."
Who knows, maybe Markle will become the third member of King and Winfrey's tight friendship
circle when she moves to North America.
After all, King did attend her baby shower in New York City.
All in all, Oprah Winfrey vocalizing her support for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shouldn't
come as a surprise.
Winfrey and the Duke of Sussex have already announced a professional partnership in April
2019, revealing their plans to collaborate on a mental-health series for Apple TV.
At the time of its announcement, the Sussex Royal Instagram account stated:
"The dynamic multi-part documentary series will focus on both mental illness and mental
wellness, inspiring viewers to have an honest conversation about the challenges each of
us faces, and how to equip ourselves with the tools to not simply survive, but to thrive."
So how did this partnership come to be?
Although we love the idea of Winfrey shooting the prince a text, it turns out that the idea
came to life through a simple conversation.
The TV queen shared on CBS This Morning:
"As you know, he's spoken about his own issues and what he went through after his mother
died and how being able to talk about it has benefitted him.
… It's a passion of his and at the end of the conversation, I said, 'Oh, I'm going to
be doing this thing with Apple.
I said it's a big concern of mine, too ... "
"He said at the end of the conversation, 'If there's anything I can do to help.'
And I go, 'Uhhhh…"
Considering not everyone is a fan of Meghan and Harry's decision including some family
members we're glad they've got a high-powered figure like Winfrey in their corner.
