AceShowbiz - Is it a shade? British royal family members, Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, claimed in a new interviw with The Telegraph that they had no idea who Oprah Winfrey, who hosted Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's bombshell inteview back in March, is.
During the new interview, Prince Edward and Sophie were asked about the high-profile interview, though they seemed to be refusing to comment on it in details. "Oprah, who?" Prince Edward replied. Meanwhile, the Countess added with a laugh, "What interview?"
Sophie also discussed Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who famously asked the TV personality what she did for a living when she attended Harry and Meghan's wedding. Defending the Archbishop, Sophie said, "You know, if you're not into chat shows, there's no reason why you should know who she is. Certainly not in this country, anyway."
Meghan and Prince Harry made headlines in March after they spoke against the British royal family in the interview with Oprah. The Duchess of Sussex revealed that she experienced racism from the family, explaining that there were "concerns and conversations" about how dark their son's skin might be when she was pregnant with their firstborn Archie. She also revealed that all the stress and media scrutiny made her suicidal at the time.
That made Harry better equipped to help a suicidal person and learn to listen more. Speaking to Oprah in a new bonus episode of their Apple TV+ show "The Me You Can't See", the Duke said, "So many people are afraid of being on the receiving end of that conversation (from a suicidal person) because they don't feel like they have the right tools to give the right advice."
"But what you want to say is 'You're there.' Listen, because listening and being part of that conversation is without doubt the best first step that you can take," he said.
