The former queen of daytime TV has confirmed that Prince Harry has landed another prestigious and high-paying job.
In a new interview, Oprah Winfrey announced that she has teamed up with Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, for a new TV series that will air on Apple.
The media mogul did a virtual interview on The Drew Barrymore Show where she explained that the project that was delayed several times in the past due to the pandemic would focus on mental health.
The journalist said that she had been working on the show alongside psychiatrist Dr. Bruce D. Perry before the bombshell interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Oprah stated: “I want to just say that Dr. Perry and I have been also, for the past two years, along with Prince Harry and Apple, we’ve been working on this mental health series that’s coming out in May on Apple.”
Prince Harry will serve as co-partner, co-creator, and executive producer of the series.
Royal fans have been tearing Prince Harry to shreds for the series because they believe he failed his wife and is not qualified to speak on such an important topic.
Others are bashing him for being inspired by the various mental health programs championed by Kate Middleton in England.
A royal fan called him out by saying: “Mental health program was started by Kate, was it not?”
A person made this point: “And what credibility does he have in treating or advising people with mental Heath issues? NONE Oprah – why is she even going down this road anymore.”
A third follower spoke about Meghan Markle’s suicidal confession: “Really? This is coming from a “man” who was too ashamed to tell/ask his family for help re: his wife’s alleged mental health issues and suicidal thoughts!”
Another comment on the news read: “This is coming from him and he couldn’t even help his own wife when she said she felt suicidal if that’s what we are supposed to believe.”
The Oprah interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry was under scrutiny yet again last month when a new hour-long documentary aired.
The exclusive documentary called Meghan and Harry: Recollections May Vary was broadcast on discovery+.
The special delved into the “biggest royal crisis in living memory” and offered “ground-breaking insights” that may “put to bed” some of the headlines that have dominated the news since the interview took place in March.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made claims of racism in the royal family and said that Meghan had not received adequate support from the royal family when she was struggling with her mental health while pregnant with their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Meghan Markle also made Prince William angry by dragging his wife, Kate Middleton, into the drama.
The documentary, produced by Shearwater, invited several experts who looked at previous public engagements from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
It included their interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby in 2019 when Prince Harry said he and his brother, Prince William, were on different paths.
Watching key moments from their interview with Oprah Winfrey, experts including Dawn Archie, professor of linguistics; Kerry Daynes, forensic psychologist; and Dr. Cliff Lansley, an expert in body language, analyzed the scenes individually.
They considered the tone of voice used by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry and their facial expressions and movements.
In the documentary, one of the experts said that “we have got… a family in crisis.” At the same time, another described the rift in the royal family as the “biggest royal crisis in living memory.”
The title of the documentary has been taken from the official response following the Oprah interview from Buckingham Palace, which stated that although “some recollections may vary,” the claims were concerning and would be addressed privately by the family.
The controversial interview has created a divide between Prince Harry, Prince Charles, and Prince William that may take years to repair.
