The Duchess of Sussex is apparently in talks with Oprah about a second bombshell interview as Meghan Markle is trying to do some 'damage control' after the launch of a new book, The Palace Papers.
- The Queen's Platinum Jubilee is celebrated this year as Her Majesty marks 70 years on the throne.
- As all eyes turn to the royal family, the Duchess of Sussex is reportedly preparing to sit down for a second Oprah interview to help with 'damage control'.
- In other royal news, Royal fans wonder when was the Queen last seen in public after monarch misses State Opening of Parliament.
The Palace Papers: Inside The House Of Windsor, The Truth And The Turmoil is a recent book from former Vanity Fair editor, Tina Brown. In this book, the author has claimed that Harry and Meghan ‘completely underestimated’ life outside of the Royal Family and that Meghan Markle’s grave misunderstanding of Princess Diana’s past left her with an ‘anathema’ for royal work.
It is alleged that these reports have frustrated the Duchess of Sussex who is now looking to take part in a second Oprah interview in order to clear up some of the damage caused to her reputation.
"These latest claims have really gotten under Meghan’s skin,” an insider close to Meghan Markle told Heat (opens in new tab). "She’s told her team that something needs to be done. She’s so sick of the negative headlines and she’s desperate to come out fighting with some major damage control."
The source added that an interview with Oprah was certainly on the cards and felt like the only good option for the Duchess. "Meghan feels as though doing another chat with Oprah is the best way to change the narrative and counter all the other negative claims she’s read about herself recently. She’s been in contact with Oprah’s people already," claimed the source.
The couple's first interview with Oprah in March 2021 was explosive and made headlines as the royal couple discussed their treatment by the firm.
In the interview, the Duke and Duchess revealed the shocking comments about Archie by a certain member of the Royal Family. It was later claimed that Prince Charles was the 'royal racist' by another author, but this has never been confirmed.
There were also a number of other claims by the couple about the firm and the extended Royal Family which shocked fans and even Oprah revealed she was surprised that Meghan and Harry went 'all the way there' in their interview.
It is unclear if this second interview between Oprah and Meghan Markle is to take place, but if the reports are correct, royal fans could be in for another bombshell interview.
