Oprah Is Defending Meghan Markle Over Unfair Media Portrayal

Royal Spoilers: Meghan Markle And Oprah WinfreyFirst it was George Clooney. Then it was Beyonce. And now it is Oprah. Meghan Markle has the ultimate defender, as the television personality says that all of the criticism that the Duchess of Sussex has received from the media has simply been unfair. Here’s what you need to know.

Even though Meghan Markle now lives a royal life across the pond with her husband Prince Harry, she still has plenty of friends who have her back Stateside. And one of them just happens to be Oprah Winfrey. During an interview with CBS This Morning, Oprah went on the record to say that the media and Meghan’s critics have been way too harsh on her.

“I feel that if people really knew her they would know that she is not only everything we perceive of her in being graceful and dynamic in holding that position, but she just has a wonderful, warm, giving, loving heart,” Winfrey said. “I think it’s very unfair.”

Oprah attended Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding back in May of 2018. She’s now working with Harry on a mental health series that will launch on Apple’s new streaming network. She’s also good, personal friends with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland. She says that it’s a very good thing that Meghan has a lot of things going on in her life these days. That way, she doesn’t spend any of her time worrying about other people’s opinions.

The Duke of Sussex has proudly been patron of UK based organization Well Child since 2007. Over 100,000 children and young people are living with serious illness or exceptional health needs across the UK. Many spend months, even years in hospital vs at home because there is no support enabling them to leave. Well Child’s vision is for every child and young person living with serious health needs to have the best chance to thrive properly supported at home with their families. Both the Duke and Duchess attended the Well Child Awards in the winter of 2018, supporting the incredible families and children who benefit from the Well Child programs. For those who have inquired, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex ask that you consider supporting @wellchild and three other select charities in lieu of sending baby gifts for their upcoming arrival. Thank you for the support and kindness! Photos via: @wellchild #worldhealthday

“I think that’s remarkable that despite everything that’s going on she does not read anything,” Winfrey said.

So far Meghan herself hasn’t made any comments about this, however, she’s probably secretly pleased that one of the most powerful people in television is defending her in public. It has to be a good feeling, right? Meghan Markle is currently expecting her first child and is reportedly already on her maternity leave. The Duchess is expected to give birth sometime during the last week of April, if not sooner or later.

With that said, you can only wonder if Oprah already has a baby gift lined up for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s little tot. We bet it’ll be epic!

This afternoon The Duke of Sussex visited an OnSide Youth Zone in Dagenham, as a continuation of his longstanding work in supporting young people and the belief that sport can change and sometimes even save lives. @OnSideyz creates state of the art ‘Youth Zones’ for disadvantaged communities to provide children and adults aged 8 to 19 (and up to age 25 with a disability) with a safe and inspiring place to be for mentorship, support, and guidance. Having a community centre such as @OnSideyz creates a safe space, a network of support, and a sense of belonging for thousands of young people, to help them deal with issues they’re facing such as knife crime, domestic abuse and teenage pregnancy. Participation in youth zones is proven to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour by half or more. Earlier this year, The Duke was joined by The Duchess of Sussex in opening an OnSide club in Birkenhead. Above, a few moments from past visits as well as from today, to highlight the valuable and necessary work @OnSideyz does for the community.

    In my humble opinion, no one should comment regarding Meghan, even when it is well intentioned. Even the defense will be criticized. The royal family does things differently, and the Americans have not yet caught on.
