It’s been a month since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gave Oprah Winfrey an explosive tell-all interview about the British royal family, but the repercussions are still being felt around the world. Oprah has now stated that she was “surprised” that Meghan went “all the way” with her accusations of bigotry towards the royal family.
While appearing on Nancy O’Dell’s latest TalkShopLive streaming show, Oprah said, “I had no idea it would have the reverberating effect that it has had and continues to have.” “The reality was our common goal. They wanted to be able to share their story in a way that would encourage them to be as honest as possible.”

Oprah said she was “surprised” when Meghan, who is biracial, said that royals were concerned about the dark skin of baby Archie.
“What are you talking about?” Is it true that you’ll be moving there? Oprah recalled, “You’re going all the way there.” “The reason it was such a powerful interview… was because you had someone else ready to be as transparent, vulnerable, and honest as they were.”
Oprah also discussed the attempts made to ensure that no one on the crew leaked the details of the nearly three-hour interview before it aired, so that the couple’s comments could not be “misconstrued.”
Because of Meghan’s accusations of prejudice and mistreatment from within the royal family, former Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott, the first black member of Parliament, told Vanity Fair that the monarchy “as we know it” will last “as long as the queen is alive.”
“I think there will be a huge public discussion… after the Queen dies,” Abbott said. I believe the royal family’s and their advisors’ treatment of Meghan will be part of the case for change.”
With a “clamor to look at the present arrangement and maybe switch to a more Scandinavian monarchy, where you don’t have all the pomp and ceremony,” Abbott predicted that a discussion could even reach the parliament floor.
Meanwhile, royal expert Anna Pasternak believes Meghan’s allegations could prevent Prince Charles from ever becoming king.
“I am not certain we will see Charles rise to the throne,” Pasternak said. “The Sussexes have ignited something in this country that is so profoundly incendiary that it is transforming the face of Britain, and I believe the monarchy as an outdated institution could well fall.”
