Gayle King has shared that she had a discussion with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry after their interview with Oprah Winfrey aired! During Tuesday's episode of CBS This Morning, King talked about her chat with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, revealing what they said to her following the tell-all special.
King says things are "frustrating" for Harry and Meghan
King is known to be good friends with Winfrey, who recently made headlines for hosting Oprah with Meghan and Harry. "No one in the royal family has talked to Meghan yet at this particular time," she shared. While a source said earlier that Harry and Meghan "felt positive" about the interview, King then went on to say why she sees the outcome as being "frustrating" for them.
The television personality said that since their interview resulted in "a racial conversation about the royal family," Harry and Meghan are disappointed by how things have been handled. She explained that the couple "wanted for the royals to intervene and tell the press to stop with the unfair, inaccurate false stories that definitely have a racial slant."
King says Meghan "has documents" to prove claims
King went on to say that Meghan and Harry "both want to move forward" from the situation, and "both want healing" between them and the royal family. "At the end of the day, that's Harry's family," she said. She also spoke out about the bullying accusations against Meghan, voicing her support for the Duchess of Sussex.
"Anyone who has worked with [Meghan] will tell you exactly who she is," King said. "She's really a very sweet, caring person. And as I say, Meghan has documents to back up everything she said on Oprah's interview." Last week, actress Janina Gavankar also affirmed that Meghan had proof, coming forward to say that there are "emails and texts" proving her claims of how the royal family treated her.
