Oprah Winfrey didn’t hold back when asked her opinion about Meghan and Harry’s royal exit!
Winfrey was out and about with friend Gayle King in New York when TMZ approached the duo to share their thoughts on Meghan and Harry’s decision to step back. “I support them 1,000 percent,” Winfrey told TMZ.
“You know why I support them? I support them because I believe, when you have thought about this as long as they have — and even in the Queen’s statement [she] says, ‘This has been going on for months,’ these discussions have been going on for months — and when Harry said in that charity statement the other day [that] he had to make the decision to move forward in peace with his new family, who doesn’t feel what that takes to make that decision to give up everything you’ve known your whole life to say I’m going to choose this new life or what I believe to be the truest vision for myself?”
“Who are any of us to stand in judgment of that?” Winfrey told TMZ. “He did what he needed to do for his family. I don’t think anybody has any right to say anything. When a person has thought what is the best decision to make for my family and then he makes that decision — none of us have any right to say anything about that.”
Gayle King, who is also a friend of Markle’s, added, “They didn’t make the decision in a vacuum. There were a lot of conversations. That’s why I thought it was very unfair to say the Queen was blindsided. Even the Queen’s own statement said these conversations have been going on for months.”
King shared, “I don’t think she’s being treated fairly, I don’t. I think she is sweet, she is loving, she is kind. She’s extremely generous with her time and her spirit, and I wish we heard more about that.”
