Oprah Comes In Support Of Meghan Markle, Slams Media For All The Negative Coverage She Gets

The Queen of Daytime television appeared on an episode of 'CBS This Morning' and had nothing but high regards for the American Princess, describing her as 'graceful and dynamic'.

Meghan Markle has been a widely-discussed topic ever since the public found out about her involvement with the royal family. The recently-inducted royal has been openly attacked by the media several times and the tabloids honestly don't get enough of the controversy that surrounds her. But the Duchess of Cambridge has been unbelievably calm with all the media's harassment and that's something Oprah Winfrey praised.



 

 

The Queen of Daytime television appeared on an episode of 'CBS This Morning' and had nothing but high regards for the American Princess, describing her as 'graceful and dynamic' while holding such a tough position. Oprah told the hosts that she was more than what the public was perceiving her as. She said: "She just has a wonderful, warm, giving, loving heart."



 

 

Gayle King, one of the hosts of 'CBS This Morning', also confirmed the fact that Meghan Markle was more than just what the press was painting her to be."She's very kind. She doesn't seem to buy into [her bad press] though," confirmed Gayle. Oprah echoed the same thoughts, telling the show hosts that the Duchess of Sussex did not read any of her press. "She actually does not read anything, which I find, you know remarkable," said Oprah."I think that's remarkable in spite of all that's going on, she doesn't read anything."



 

 

Oprah went on to talk about the new docuseries that she was working on with Meghan Markle's husband, Prince Harry. She confirmed that a lot of her time has been spent in London as she and Prince Harry bring their new docuseries about mental health into fruition. She gave an insight into how the idea came about: "I asked the question what do you think are the most important issues facing the world right now, and he said there are two. He said climate change and mental wellness, mental fitness, and mental health."



 

 

Prince Harry has always been open about the personal struggles he faces following the death of his mother. "As you know, he's spoken about his own issues and what he went through after his mother died and how being able to talk about it has benefited him,” Oprah said. "So it's a passion of his and, at the end of the conversation, I said, 'Oh, I'm going to be doing this thing with Apple. It's a big concern of mine too and I want to try to erase the stigma.' And he said at the end of the conversation, 'If there's anything I can do to help...'"



 

 

Oprah took this as an opportunity to pitch her show's idea to the British royal and asked if he would be interested in building the television series. According to Oprah, Harry was immediately struck by the project and has had a hands-on approach to the docuseries. "He's co-creating and executive producing," she said. "We've had several meetings, secret meetings in London. I've flown there with the crew, sitting in sessions, talking about the directions we're going to take."



 

 

The Duke of Sussex also broke the news of the secret collaboration on Wednesday on his newly-created Instagram account. The caption reads: "I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series which we have been developing together for several months. I truly believe that good mental health – mental fitness – is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities, and a purpose-driven self. It is a huge responsibility to get this right as we bring you the facts, the science and the awareness of a subject that is so relevant during these times. Our hope is that this series will be positive, enlightening and inclusive – sharing global stories of unparalleled human spirit fighting back from the darkest places, and the opportunity for us to understand ourselves and those around us better.'

However, the Duchess of Sussex will not be involved in the Apple documentary project. The royal couple is expecting their first child in the coming weeks.
