Oprah Winfrey interviews Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on A CBS Primetime Special premiering on CBS on March 7, 2021.

From the clips I’ve seen this wasn’t an interview, Oprah did not question any of the lies. She did out perform Markle on the acting contest though. Her theatrical performance when Markle use the race card was something else.

Neil Boardman

Well her acting skills are definitely leading to an Oscar!! She has managed to cause as much friction as she possibly could. Most families don't go the media to air their dirty linen - it is an absolute disgrace!!!

Iris French

If it was that bad being in the RF for 5 mins then you would give up the titles and have no association with it.

Julie Hedley

To be fair, if my mum was treated by the royal family as Harry's was, I would want to out them for what they really are as well.

Paul Hollowood

Why didn’t she name the person who is said to have commented on the child’s possible “colour”. By not saying their name, the comment cannot be defended.

Steve Ogden

She married into a pack of self centred sociopaths what did she expect.

David Proctor

I’m keeping an open mind, She talks about racism & suicide, important not to judge if that how she felt.

Steve Jones

It's not the first time a publicity seeking American has tried to cause problems in the Royal Family. I wonder how much they were paid to take part in this interview?

Alan Spencer

And the Oscar goes to...

Debby Hughes

What a money spinner. She picked the two top subjects of the moment. Racism & mental health. Why she thinks running off to America will help I don't know.

Arnie Cunningham

Anyone would say I wonder what colour he/she will be if from mixed race not racist just a question sorry I think she is awful and Harry I just don't have the words to describe how he must feel lost his family now very damaging.
