    England has had a BLACK Queen, Sophie Charlotte who married King George 3 in 1761

  • Janice Hooper on September 19, 2022

    And Oprah is as big a liar (IMO) as Meghan. This is an inappropriate time to bring all that up. The Queen has not even been buried yet. I have no respect for any of the three. I am only curious as to why it seemed like Oprah was taking great delight in the derogatory remarks H & M were making in her interview.

  • William Carman on September 19, 2022

    Oprah is lying 🤥 She just mad at the backlash and she ruined her reputation. Can't stand Oprah now.

  • just my interpretation on September 19, 2022

    Oprah says.." Some of the things revealed to me, were surprising to me… .And those surprising things are now referred to as BOMBSHELL….." NO OPRAH those surprising things turned out to be PROVEN LIES….yet you knew that already.

  • Oscar V on September 19, 2022

    IMHO Meghan Markle is being mentored and sponsored by Oprah Winfrey. That explains her full access to financial help and unlimited media coverage in the US. Oprah is supporting a polarizing figure with a divisive agenda that pins the races against eachother. When she could put her energy toward solving the problem.

  • V.M on September 19, 2022

    Liar! It was called TELL ALL INTERVIEW! Why do you think they bloody left the royal family? Because things were amazing? Don’t act daft! Oprah now trying to backtrack, because their lies slowly started prevail with FACTS! Don’t come after me with the race cards, as I’am a Indian British citizen. The same age & mother of 2 children & a woman of colour myself!!! Oprah you got into this families business, what are you talking about? You didn’t stop it, you could’ve, but you sat and enjoyed it & asked more questions & now you say you don’t like to talk about other peoples family matters! The audacity

    Also about the walkabout… It was because it came to light, Harry & Meghan were planning to do the walkabout with their chosen 📸 crew. So to save more heartache & trauma, William quickly reached out & asked them to join them. Williams job to protect the family & if people noticed he also made sure his & Catherine’s staff make sure Harry & Meghan were ok. Little things like taking flowers off Meghan/Harry etc. Meghan looked like she had in her head (stunt) to walk the flowers passed to her by some public, to go lay them herself with the rest. Hence there was that back & forth with staff, until Harry intervened & said to let go basically (it’s the staffs job for gods sake) but she wanted that headline, Meghan walked back to all the flowers already laid, to lay herself. Instead of letting the staff do it! It’s ok team Meghan feel free to attack, you won’t get anything back. Surprised they don’t see this as a ‘Sceptical’ just like they disrespected thousands who came to celebrate them from all walks of life, to then throw it in our faces. When she didn’t even have the decency to appreciate it & called it a spectacle. They’re bullied by us British citizens (yet all were respectful as it was for the Queen). Weird how they feel so unsafe, yet felt safe enough to plan to do the walkabout just the two of them. The word leaked & William quickly intervened & extended the invite. A hour before, you don’t need time to prepare! As you can never prepare yourself for a family members death regardless famous or not, when mourners come to pay respects. IF Meghan & Harry are genuine, they won’t make out, “We was only given 1 hours notice”. It’s not a catwalk, dont even need time to stick black stocking’s, dress on, comb your hair & put basic make up on & greet mourners. It wasn’t more than 5 mins drive to get there. So nothing to winge about, but I’am sure they will unfortunately & it’s disgusting. It’s sad I feel I have to add here, that I’am a British Indian citizen! Same generation as Harry & also a mother of 2 children. So do NOT come at me with the race card. In fact be ashamed even if you think about it, because the race card is a very serious allegation & Meghan uses it so freely. My 10 year old daughter said last week, “Daddy when I’am older I hope I’m not like Meghan, she’s not a good role model.” My husband was in shock & shouted me, to then as a family have a sit down chat. Don’t underestimate the younger generation if even 10 year olds can call BS out. FOOL ME, I won’t lie I cried my eyes out watching that interview. Then over time truth bombs started dropping, she’s a liar & believes her own lie’s. I would never do my family dirty the way these two have & I’ve been through all types of abuse. Yet made sure to not give in & keep the family unit together. There more interested to what they’ve inherited & I hope us citizen’s can do something to help save our monarch 🤷🏻‍♀️ anyone know if there’s any poll or something to get this stripping of ALL titles to parliament or something. Because this woman is dangerous!

    P.s what Andrew’s been part of hands down disgusting & since day dot Charles & William distanced from him. But 1 thing I have to take with a pinch of salt – At least Andrew’s accepted & respected his mother stripping all. Don’t forget the Queen asked Andrew to walk her for Prince Philips funeral. But otherwise Andrew has gone under radar, shut up & stayed out of lime light. We don’t see him winge winge winge thank his for that. So we have to give Andrew that, as much as we don’t want to

    O my o what a tangled web we weave.. Oprah we are not stupid, ur job has always been other people's business!!

  • Vee Lindolent on September 19, 2022

    You set out to do just that. I quote Shakespeare: " The lady doth protest too much, methinks." A sign of guilt.

  • Kate D on September 19, 2022

    The Obama's suffered an incredible amount of racism and they never called Americans or American media racist.
    They never whined that the justice system or Congress didn't defend them.
    They recognized the haters for what they were and rose above each and every one of them.
    They put their duty to country before a shallow need to be pitied. They acted with a class that Meghan can only pretend to have.
    Oprah should've known better.

  • Amanda Slade on September 19, 2022

    This woman should just be quiet, she assisted Oprah, these two women are rowing for shore and just embarrassing themselves. This isn't just any family, they are a thousand year old dynasty and the Queen was our head of state. They were both looking for dirt on our RF, the pair of them disgust me.

  • NeonWhite on September 19, 2022

    Meghan basically used Oprah to spread lies.

  • gggifts on September 19, 2022

    I love Oprah’s hair

  • Rosalie978 on September 19, 2022

    So honestly, Oprah didn't do herself any service. This time a shitstorm could arise from which she could not recover. 2 funerals and 2x she mixes the feelings by only for the quota. Meghan is an immature woman who urgently needs to have her relationships treated, Harry is the poor troll who loves her and goes along with everything – but Oprah is the one who gave the whole thing the stage in the first place and believed everything. She should be ashamed of it. All for the money, nothing else. Whether Prince Philip was dying, the Queen would have needed support. No, the main thing is that Meghan and Oprah make quota

  • Td Auk on September 19, 2022

    Oprah is as deluded as the Duke and Duchess of Monteshito

  • Sally Crager on September 19, 2022

    What did she think would happen.

  • WRITE ON Betty on September 19, 2022

    🐍 You are a SNAKE Oprah !! We have lost all Respect for you.

  • Susie Ayres on September 19, 2022

    Trying to do some damage limitation girls??? Your hypocrisy makes me sick. Still waiting to see the receipts Gayle!

  • J A on September 19, 2022

    Baloney, you all knew! Gail even got a raise for this. Don't blow smoke, Meghan, Harry, Oprah and Gail are responsible for giving grief to the Queen in her last years of her beautiful life. Greed, pure greed – how much money do you people need? You're disgusting! 😤

  • Bella Boss on September 19, 2022

    shut up O. & Gayle.
    you set out to make money off of those two idiots, and you did

  • Nocturnal Owl on September 19, 2022

    And I shall say this again: the very need for Gayle to explain how she got Oprah to speak of the lying fest and the two traitors while on a promo of the documentary on Sydney Poitier speaks volume of their – Gayle and Oprah – desperate attempts to extricate themselves from what majority of the world population now know was their deliberate choice to cause further distress on a 99-year old man who was very ill. They dismissed the Royal Family’s request to postpone the airing by explaining to the public that the RF was trying to muzzle Meghan. Own it Oprah and Gayle. Both of you are not getting any younger too as were Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth.

  • R C on September 19, 2022

    This interview is an embarrassment for three people only: Harry, his wife and Oprah. Appalling journalism from Oprah and multiple lies that have now been proven. I honestly can't believe they're not being held more accountable for this.

  • Sarah Richards on September 19, 2022

    Give me a break, like they care.👍👍👍

    Oprah is a truly evil and delusional creature.

  • Pam Campbell on September 19, 2022

    Oprah provided a platform for a malicious compulsive liar and a manipulated dim-wit. No hard questions asked. She got Markled.

  • Shiloh Daniel on September 19, 2022

    It just strange that Oprah comes out now to discuss about the interview right after Her Majesty The Queen passed away to back pedaling it. As if she's pulling the attention back to the interview again when Queen's people are mourning her passing. Remember you did that too a year ago knowimg full well Prince Phillip was in his last days, yet you have no sensitivity of heart as human being to at least delay it but keep going on with the liars demand. Shame on you! Whatever you said now is a no credible no matter how hard you tried to make yourself like a good person. You thought you were having a great interview of all your hard working years with those two liars but it was your professional suicidal interview…you make your own bed now sleep in it. If you ever were a professional you did a worst job in that interview when you stomp on royal family business. No matter what they are a family and you made money out of them. Do you even ask Harry or Meghan, you are going to trash your family here…don't you think you are violating their rights of privacy that Harry and Meghan claimed to desperately want? At the cost of their own family's privacy? Shame shame shame that you only come out now trying to get the attention in the mourning time. Just move on with your gossip journalism because that it is what it looks like now. Gossiping about the secret of other families. Go get your next interviews or projects with your dearest friends Harry and Meghan since they desperately need a friend and a platform now to moan about their daily victomhood. They left the monarchy that means they don't deserve any titles that attached to the monarchy. And it goes for their children as well because they are not serving the monarchy. Now the Queen who always take the neautral stand no matter how hurtful she was by Harry and Meghan is gone and all the doors are closed for them to dig into family dirty laundry….good luck with them and oh see that narcisstic interview of your dearly beloved Meghan equaling herself with great man Mandela. Yea thats the crazy friend neighbor of yours…..good luck with them!

  • Martina Kuhnert on September 19, 2022

    Shame on you Oprah and shame on you Gail. Two hypocrites and that is to put it mildly.

  • S S on September 19, 2022

    Year after the interview why suddenly these reflections by both Oprah & Gayle ? Maybe Retribution/ Skepticism/ Conscience

  • Josie Englin on September 19, 2022

    What in the back-pedalling is going on here? Also, it's okay to denounce tones of potential racism in any family. Skirting around that is just ridiculous. Oh man, this truly has me feeling for Meghan. She probably doesn't even realize just how in over her head she really is. Love to you, Meghan.

  • noeli martinez on September 19, 2022

    Harry just spoke what everybody knew we seen how then did princess diana

  • Harry Pothead on September 19, 2022

    I don’t get into peoples families matters? Really? All the questions you asked were about Harry’s Family and they were Bombshell Questions! See the questions asked Oprah, seriously. Don’t think Dennis Swanson envisioned your Geraldo Approach to Journalism to be apart of your path? Very disappointing seeing you going to this kind of journalistic style.

  • Super Nova on September 19, 2022

    Actually BOMBSHELL is a euphemism for LIES ! .. stop trying to sugar coat sh!t Oprah ! We all saw what you , MadMegz and her Na’zi uniform wearing husband were up to ! now tryna back peddle claiming you don’t get into other people’s family business 😂😂😂 your entire career is built on you getting into other peoples family business!
