Oprah surprised that Meghan Markle went ‘all the way there’ with racism claims during interview

Oprah Winfrey says she had no idea her revealing interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would be so impactful — and she was surprised that Markle “went all the way there” by accusing the royals of racial bias.

The 67-year-old opened up about the March broadcast on Nancy O’Dell’s new TalkShopLive streaming show.

“I had no idea that it would have the reverberating impact that it has had and continues to have,” the media mogul said.

“Our shared intention was the truth. They wanted to be able to tell their story and tell it in such a way that allowed them to be as truthful as possible,” Winfrey continued of the pair.

The talk show host said she was “surprised” when the biracial Duchess of Sussex said that royals had raised concerns over the darkness of baby Archie’s skin.

“What? You’re going there? You’re going all the way there,” Winfrey exclaimed to O’Dell.

“The reason why it was such a powerful interview … was when you have somebody else who is willing to be as open, as vulnerable, as truthful as they were,” she told O’Dell.

Oprah also explained how great lengths were taken to make sure no one in the crew leaked the content of the more than three hour interview before it went to air, so that the couple’s remarks couldn’t be “misconstrued.”
