Oprah sulsol kina Harry, Meghan
Super-deny si Oprah Winfrey na may kinalaman siya sa pag-step back nina Prince Harry at Meghan Markle sa kanilang royal duties. Ayon sa isang source, sa show raw ni Oprah na “SuperSoul Sunday”, ina-advise raw niya ang Royal Couple to “break free” from the royals at lumipat sila sa Canada.
Close si Oprah sa Duke and Duchess of Sussex, pero wala raw siyang karapatan na makialam sa mga desisyon nila sa buhay.
In a statement to NBC, Oprah insisted that she was not behind it.
“Meghan and Harry do not need my help in figuring out what’s best for them. I care about them both and support whatever decisions they make for their family.”
Noon pa raw may balak si Prince Harry na kumawala sa royal family. Sa kanyang 2017 interview with Newsweek, ito ang sinabi niya:
“I spent many years kicking my heels and I didn’t want to grow up. I felt I wanted out but then decided to stay in and work out a role for myself.”
Naglabas naman ng statement ang Buckingham Palace sa pagkalas nina Harry at Meghan sa kanilang royal duties at ang hangad nilang maging “financially independent”.
“We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through.” (Ruel Mendoza)
