It is being claimed that Oprah Winfrey is most likely infuriated that Prince Harry tried to ruin her multi-million dollar interview that is set to air on CBS.
The world is eager to see the much-talked-about sit-down between Oprah with Meghan Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex.
The media mogul was paid between $7 million and $9 million in license fees for the bombshell upcoming tell-all that will be watched by people in 17 countries.
Several juicy trailers of the interview have been shared online to create buzz and drama between the power couple, Queen Elizabeth II, and the rest of the royal family.
However, days before the main event, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, appeared in a goofy and fun-filled episode with James Corden.
According to some royal experts, Oprah is probably fuming over Harry’s decision to cheapen his upcoming appearance by clowning around with Corden.
Reporter Benjamin Butterworth explained: “I think they were desperate to get their story out there. Anyone that saw James Corden and Prince Harry on Friday, first of all, Oprah must have been livid that he’d already given the line of why he quit the Royals to James Corden, so she’s not got that as an exclusive.”
Butterworth went on to say: “So she’s wasted a couple of million there, but I just find it utterly extraordinary how a couple that are so rich and have had such a high position in life as the Duke and Duchess can manage to make themselves appear so cheap. It really is big money, reportedly ITV spent £1million on getting the rights to air this Oprah interview in the UK.”
The journalist also questioned the timing because of Prince Harry’s grandfather, Prince Philip‘s health issues: “For a couple that needs the popularity and the good PR, even if you accept their decision to quit the royals and go off and pursue this line of work. “You have to question the good sense behind doing it now, you know, would it have killed them to do it in three months, six months, when the world will hopefully be in a much stronger place?”
Julia Hartley-Brewer, a British broadcaster and political journalist, added: “Yeah, and that’s what I just find so incredibly Celebrity Big Brother, I mean to all intents and purposes, but again this is the whole point.”
Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry make some serious allegations and confessions in their Oprah interview that have the royal family on edge and on full attack mode to protect their image.
