Oprah Winfrey shares her thoughts on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on attending the coronation of King Charles III.
Oprah Winfrey who is reported to maintain close links to the royal couple following their bombshell interview in 2021, was asked whether she thinks they should attend the crowning ceremony by mutual friend Gayle King in a recently released clip from Tuesday's CBS Mornings show.
A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan confirmed earlier this month that the couple had received an "email correspondence" from Charles' office "regarding the coronation," amid mounting speculation over whether or not they would be welcome in the aftermath of their allegation-packed docuseries and memoir.
"Do you think they should go, do you think they should not go? Is it something you'd like to comment on? I'm listening," King asked Winfrey, who was on the morning show to promote her 100th book club selection, Hello Beautiful by Ann Napolitano.
"I think they should do what they feel is best for them and their family. That's what I think," the TV veteran advised.
"That's what the bottom line comes down to. What do you feel like is the right thing for you?"
"They haven't asked me my opinion," she concluded.
Both Winfrey and King have been linked socially to Harry and Meghan. In 2018, Winfrey was a prominent guest at the couple's Windsor Castle wedding, sitting in the St George's Chapel quire stalls, a bank of seating usually reserved for close family members during royal weddings.
In 2019, King was one of the small number of guests who attended Meghan's exclusive baby shower in New York, a gathering she defended when it sparked criticism of the duchess in Britain over its perceived extravagance.
The couple gave their first joint in-depth interview to Winfrey in 2021, after their dramatic exit from the monarchy a year earlier. The topics discussed dominated news coverage around the world, with the outstanding claim coming from Meghan that appeared at the time to suggest a member of the royal family had made racially insensitive comments about the skin color of her and Harry's future children.
