Eyebrows were raised by Prince Harry’s honesty in his latest interview with Oprah Winfrey.

He spoke openly about his experiences with therapy, the trauma of Meghan Markle’s suicidal thoughts, his childhood and much more.

It was all part of a new docuseries, The Me You Can’t See.

Now Oprah has been talking on CBS This Morning about what she makes of Harry’s honesty.

Gayle King asked Oprah: “He’s candid in this series.

“Do you think that being as candid as he is, is going to help him with the Royal Family?”

But Oprah replied: “I don’t know if it helps with the Royal Family, but this is what I do know.

“Is that, being able to express your own personal truth in a way that benefits you and also helps other people to see the truth in themselves.”


She went on: “In this series, we are in conversation. He knows the power of story.

“He knows by sharing the story of his own grief with his mother that many other people that haven’t processed his grief will say ‘you know what? That’s what’s going on with me too.’”

The series will feature other high profile names, talking about their mental health in an attempt to break the stigma.

Oprah is keen for the series to make it easier for people to talk about their problems.

Fans and critics alike have been divided over whether Harry should have talked as openly as he did.

Meanwhile, Piers Morgan asked if  Oprah cared about “the damage it may be doing to the mental health of Harry’s family”.

Next he tweeted: “At what point does Oprah’s hugely lucrative enabling of unhinged Prince Harry’s constant assaults on the Royal Family become ‘problematic’ – and does she care about the damage it may be doing to the mental health of Harry’s relatives, or don’t they count?””


However, Oprah defended Harry and Meghan’s right to privacy, but also to give interviews.

She said: “You know, I ask for privacy, and I’m talking all the time. So I think being able to have a life that you are not intruded upon by photographers, or people flying overhead, or invading your life, is what every person wants and deserves — to not to be intruded and invaded upon.

“That’s what people are missing. Privacy doesn’t mean silence.”


Meanwhile, a royal biographer says Prince Harry is ‘constantly’ worried about losing Meghan Markle like he did his mother Diana.

Author Angela Levin said it was ‘dreadful’, because Harry believes his wife could die like his mother did.

She also says Royal’s life ‘sounds too much for him’ and that he should step away from his role as a ‘woke lecturing celebrity’.

Ms Levin wrote the 2018 book ‘Harry: Conversations with the Prince’.

She tweeted: “How dreadful if Harry constantly thinks that he will lose Meghan like he did Diana and blames racism.”

“Plus can’t get rid of M’s threat to commit suicide. His life sounds too much for him and he should back away from being a woke lecturing celebrity.”
