Twitter reacts to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Oprah interview – CNET
Just yesterday,for a much-anticipated tell-all interview that actually ended up being more revealing than most expected. It aimed at the Duchess of Sussex. Meghan Markle bravely admitted having struggled with mental health issues that drove her to thoughts of suicide. (If you are struggling with thoughts of suicide, here are 13 suicide and crisis intervention hotlines you can use to get help.)
Here are Twitter’s reactions to some of the interview’s revelations…
Meghan and Harry actually got married in secret before the public wedding
There was the televised wedding, of course, but apparently Meghan and Harry also got married earlier, in secret. Game of Thrones style…
Kate Middleton made Meghan cry?
Oprah asked Meghan about a story that did the rounds in the British tabloids saying Meghan had made Kate Middleton cry. It was a strange story that dredged up all sorts of pretty awful headlines from the notorious tabloid press in the UK.
According to Meghan, it was the other way around. Kate had made her cry over complaints about flower girl dresses.
The Crown is gonna be good
The entire internet was watching, reacting to the drama of what will no doubt be an incredibly compelling season of The Crown, should we get that far.
Writers for the next season of Netflix hit The Crown have a lot of new material to work with.
Meghan is relatable, but she didn’t Google her future husband?
Plenty of viewers mentioned that Meghan was relatable and did a great job during the interview, etc. But are we really expected to believe that she didn’t google her future in-laws in the 21st century?
“Meghan didn’t google the royal family. Meanwhile I see a guy in the grocery store and 30 mins later I’ll have his great-aunt’s house pulled up on Zillow,” one Twitter user joked.
Stopped taking his calls?
People were shocked at Prince Harry’s reveal that his father, Prince Charles, stopped taking his calls.
Most tweets around this interview were reaction shots, exactly like this. To be quite honest it makes sense. This was not your typical softball celebrity interview.
The UK Press
In the wake of the interview, the UK press, which has been notoriously horrific in its coverage of Meghan Markle in particular started up with its takes. It didn’t take long for Piers Morgan, a journalist who’s been particularly and consistently critical of Markle, to pipe up.
I don’t really know how to categorize this or where to put these, so I’m just gonna drop them here. Thanks.
