Meghan Markle Reveals the Palace Monitored Her Conversation with Oprah in 2018
Good morning and hello, CBS has released another sneak peek of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s upcoming tell-all interview with Oprah.
In the clip, Oprah says “so I just want to say that I called you February or March 2018, before the wedding, asking would you please give me an interview. And you said, ‘I’m sorry it’s not the right time.’ And finally we get to sit down and have this conversation.” Meghan then reveals that when Oprah initially asked her for the interview, she didn’t even have the ability to speak on the phone in private:
Oprah then asks Meghan what makes now the right time for an interview, and the Duchess explains “Well, so many things. That we’re on the other side of a lot of life experience that’s happened. And also, that we have the ability to make our own choices in a way that I couldn’t have said yes to you then. That wasn’t my choice to make. So, as an adult who lived a really independent life, to then go into this construct, that is different than I think what people imagine it to be. It’s really liberating to be able to have the right and the privilege, in some ways, to be able to say yes, I’m ready to talk….to say it for yourself, to be able to just make a choice on your own and just be able to speak for yourself.”
Oprah and Meghan’s sit down airs Sunday on CBS, and Meghan will also discuss how the Palace might feel about her speaking out. “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,” she said in another clip. “And if that comes with risk of losing things, I mean I — there’s a lot that’s been lost already.”
