Is it? Oprah WinfreyFeuding with Prince Harry Meghan Markle? One tabloid reports that the media mogul feels betrayed having discovered the lies of the Sussexes to her face. Here’s what we know.
Oprah Winfrey ‘Keeping Her Distance From The Sussexes’?
Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left their royal duties, they have relied on Oprah Winfrey’s help and friendship. But that’s all over now, according to Woman’s Day. The tabloid reports Winfrey slammed Harry and Markle this week after learning that they had lied during their March interview. After the interview, outlets were quick to flag many of the Sussexes’ statements as untrue.
“As soon as those headlines started coming out, and Oprah learned that they’d either exaggerated or downright lied to her, she was furious,” an inside source dishes. “This put a severe dent in Oprah’s reputation as one of America’s most skilled interviewers and even now, almost eight months later, it hasn’t quite recovered.” And after Markle visited a Harlem school (where most of the children came from low-income families) while wearing a $20,000 outfit, Winfrey is calling their friendship off.
“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,” another tipster explains. “Oprah knows she needs to distance herself from them for her own good.”
The tabloid refers to Winfrey’s comments about not having friends recently as evidence of a rift with the Sussexes. “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,” the tipster concludes.

Winfrey wrote on her website, “My neighbor Meghan (yes, that one) introduced me to this woman-led wellness brand. I don’t think a day goes past without sipping the golden latte made with this kit. It also includes chai latte mixture and a little frother. You can add the mixes to smoothies for a flavor boost, too.”
If she was really trying to distance herself from the Sussexes, we doubt she’d be mentioning them by name in her business endeavors. Besides, Winfrey’s reputation certainly isn’t struggling.
