Piers Morgan Blames Oprah Winfrey For ‘Enabling’ Feud Between Meghan Markle And Royal Family As Ex-Talk Show Host Hopes Queen’s Death Will Mend Rift

Piers Morgan does not seem too thrilled about Oprah Winfrey’s recent comments, saying that she hoped Queen Elizabeth II’s death could unite Meghan Markle and Prince Harry back with the royal family. As we all know, the couple shocked the World last year with their explosive CBS interview conducted by Winfrey, who famously asked Markle “were you silent or were you silenced?” as the former “Suits” star opened up about her difficult time working as a royal member.

Markle also commented on how one member of Harry’s side of the family had questioned how dark the skin color of their son Archie would be while she was still pregnant, further claiming that Prince William’s wife, Kate Middleton, previously made her cry during a discussion over bridesmaid dresses. The interview with Winfrey was said to have caused a huge rift between the pair and the royals over in the UK, but the 68-year-old former talk show host says she’s hopeful that with the Queen’s passing, “there’s an opportunity for peacemaking.”

Well, Morgan would beg to differ, after taking to twitter and insisting that Winfrey was the one who enabled the feud between both parties. “Great to see Oprah Winfrey call for a healing of massive rifts in the Royal Family.. that she enabled,” he wrote. Though the British journalist received plenty of praise for his tweet, showing that people were clearly agreeing with him, others felt Winfrey made a valid point that this could be the opportunity for both sides to finally put their differences aside and start a new chapter.

One person tweeted back to Morgan, writing, “And I stand with what @Oprah [said]. I hope coming together to bury the Queen helps them bury some of the issues that broke them and aid in their reconciliation with their living family. No lies told [sic].”

Another user questioned what Morgan would have expected Harry and Markle to discuss given that the interview had already been teased to include bombshell revelations. “‘I do not get into people’s family matters’  What did you think they were going to talk about in the interview? The weather?”

In one excerpt of the CBS interview, Markle opened up on the “concerns and conversations” that were being had about how “dark” the skin tone of Archie would be, which appeared to have left the Los Angeles native feeling rather uncomfortable.

“Those were conversations family had with him,’ the former Suits actress claimed. ‘They didn’t want him to be a prince or princess, not knowing what the gender would be, which would be different from protocol and that he wasn’t going to receive security.”
