Winfrey said she couldn’t believe Markle went ‘all the way there’ with her claims against the royal family.

Oprah Winfrey is sharing more insight into her explosive interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The media mogul expressed that she was “surprised” that the Duchess of Sussex went “all the way there” with her claims against the tabloids and royal family during Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special.

“I was surprised,” Oprah said during the first episode of The Nancy O’Dell Channel on talkshoplive, “What? You’re going there? You’re going all the way there?”

During the broadcast, Meghan and Harry made some shocking claims. Meghan revealed that she suffered from suicidal thoughts while pregnant with son Archie. She said she was told senior members of “the Institution” told her she could not get help. Harry also revealed that his father, Prince Charles, stopped speaking to him for a time. However, one topic that was particularly controversial was Meghan and Harry’s claims that a member of the royal family expressed concerns about how “dark” their future son Archie’s skin tone would be.
