Oprah Winfrey (66) has had a conversation with Buckingham Palace about her friendship with Doria Ragland (63), Meghan’s mother. At least, that’s what the authors of the book ‘Finding Freedom’, which appeared on Tuesday, claim.
“She said very little about the Sussexes at the time”
Members of the British court would have feared that the American talk show was only after a revealing interview. “I thought that was so interesting because no one in this world would ever question the motives of Oprah,” said royalty reporter Omid Scobie, one of the book’s authors. Access Hollywood.
Omid heard from a Buckingham Palace employee that Oprah was coming for an interview. “They wanted to make sure her intentions were good regarding her friendship with Meghan and Doria and that she wasn’t just trying to arrange an interview.”
Oprah Winfrey not on her own magazine cover for the first time in 20 years
According to the writer, the talk show host has more than made her “a respectful friend”. “She said very little about the Sussexes at the time.” Oprah was just one of the guests at Harry and Meghan’s 2018 wedding.
Passages from Finding Freedom have been published in recent weeks, in which much is written about the reason for Harry and Meghan’s step back within the British royal family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex deny having contributed to the book. According to the authors, the couple would have opened the door wide to friends and family, so that they could speak frankly about the difficult time that Harry and Meghan have had.
