CBS knows how to leverage the relationship between star anchor Gail King and her best friend Oprah Winfrey.
Sunday night, Oprah scored a coup, taking her interview with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex to CBS, in what could, and hopefully will be a blockbuster interview.
CBS sent out a little tease of the primetime special, and in it Meghan accused the royal family of actively encouraging lies about her.
That sounds spicy! Somebody’s knickers are going to get in a bunch. We hope.
Give Meghan credit for bringing some Hollywood drama to her in laws across the pond. Oprah asked the Duchess how she feels about being trashed by the palace for Markle speaking out about what life was like living in the royal bubble, Markle unloaded.
I don’t know how they could expect that, after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that ‘The Firm’ is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.”
“The Firm” is what those in the know have dubbed the royal family.
It looks like Harry gets in a few verbal bombs too. He told Oprah his “biggest concern was history repeating itself.”
There’s little doubt what he meant by that, clearly he was inferring that what happened to his mom, Princess Diana, who died in a car crashed while being chased by Paparazzi when Harry was just 12-years old.
