Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are known to be very close to legendary American television host Oprah Winfrey. As a matter of fact, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex invited the “Queen of Talk” as one of the esteemed guests during their wedding in 2018.
Oprah was even spotted spending some quality time with Meghan Markle’s mom, Doria Ragland, a few weeks after the royal wedding. At the time, Doria was spotted departing Oprah’s home with gifts, which gave birth to rumors that the latter is trying to buy her way into the inner circle of the Sussex pair.
However, new reports suggested that Oprah Winfrey has been keeping her distance from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently. Keep on reading to know more details.
Oprah Winfrey Concerned About Her Reputation After Being Associated With Meghan Markle and Prince Harry?
Woman’s Day Australia, in its Nov. 1, 2021 issue, reported that friendship of Meghan Markle with Oprah Winfrey has cooled in recent months. The entertainment news website claimed that the media mogul has been left feeling “furious and betrayed” after the wife of Prince Harry was reportedly proven to have lied to her during the Sussex pair’s tell-all interview with Oprah.
An unnamed source claimed:
“As soon as those headlines started coming out, and Oprah learned that they’d either exaggerated or downright life to her, she was furious. This put a severe dent in Oprah’s reputation as one of America’s most skilled interviewers in and even now, almost eight months later, it hasn’t quite recovered.”
Other insiders shared that Oprah Winfrey decided to cool her friendship with Meghan Markle after the latter’s visit to a Harlem school. Some people thought that wearing a $20,000 worth outfit at the time was very insensitive, especially since most of the students attending the said school are underprivileged.
An unidentified industry insider stated:
“American audiences are starting to realize that Harry and Meghan aren’t exactly practicing what they’re constantly preaching, and people are beginning to turn on them. Oprah knows she needs to distance herself from them for her own good.”
Adding fuel to the fire is Oprah Winfrey’s revelation that she only has three friends that she trusts, which do not include Meghan Markle. The veteran host said she counts on Gayle King, Maria Shriver and Bob Greene, her personal trainer.
Another informant told Woman’s Day Australia:
“That was a rather pointed comment to make because until that point, everyone in Oprah’s circle assumed she was extremely close with Meghan. But it seems that’s changed.”
Both Meghan Markle and Oprah Winfrey have yet to comment on the feud rumors plaguing their friendship. So, avid followers of Prince Harry’s wife and the American television host should take all of these unverified claims lightly until everything is proven true and correct.
Neighbors Allegedly Do Not Want To Touch Meghan Markle And Prince Harry
Meanwhile, royal commentator Lady Colin, who is also known as Lady C, revealed via her YouTube channel that the neighbors of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry want complete isolation from them. While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been enjoying their life away from the royal family, it is said that the people surrounding them are not feeling the same way.
Lady Colin, as per Geo News, stated:
"Last night, I was at something in London with some very very famous stars who have a place in Montecito. And of course, Meghan and Harry’s names came up. And they told me what I have been told by other friends of mine, who know the Montecito scene or have places in Montecito. And the billionaires don’t want to touch them, nobody wants to touch them."
On Friday, Oct. 29, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, as reported by Woman and Home, were expected to welcome new neighbors after the property next door was sold for a whooping $19 million. To recall, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who is enjoying the company of numerous A-list neighbors such as Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey, acquired their $14 million mansion in July 2020.
