Oprah Reportedly Advised Harry & Meghan on Step Back From Royal Family; Markle Returns to Canada
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got a little help from their friends when they decided to step back from Royal Family duties this week. According to <i>Page Six,</i> Oprah Winfrey advised the couple on their power move. “Oprah was the first person to talk to Harry and Meghan about breaking free and doing their own thing, building on their own brand,” says a source. “She made them realize it was really possible.” Oprah attended the couple’s royal wedding in 2018 and is teaming up with Harry on an upcoming Apple TV+ series on mental health. Meanwhile, multiple outlets reported Thursday that Markle flew to Canada just one day after she and Harry made their infamous “step back” announcement. Her husband stayed behind in the UK to deal with the Royal Family fallout after their bombshell announcement.
