has shared her thoughts about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and whether they should attend King Charles III’s coronation in May.
The talk show host, who has been close friends with the royal couple, briefly discussed the coronation during an interview on Tuesday with friend Gayle King on CBS Mornings, to promote her 100th selection for her book club, Hello Beautiful by Ann Napolitano.
During the conversation, King addressed recent reports about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex being invited to the big event, before asking Winfrey for her opinion on it. “Do you think they should go? Do you think they should not go? Is it something you’d like to comment on?”
In response, Winfrey, who conducted a bombshell interview about the royal family with Harry and Meghan in 2021, gave her advice to and showed her support for the pair.
“I think they should do what they feel is best for them and their family,” she explained. “That’s what I think. That’s what the bottom line comes down to. What do you feel like is the right thing for you?”
While Harry and Meghan have received their invitation, reports have claimed that their two children, Archie, four, and Lilibet, one, have not.
Reports have also explained why Harry may be reluctant to attend the event, with one source claiming that he is seeking an “apology” from his father and brother, Prince William, before he makes any commitments to go to the ceremony.
This report also came after his interview with ITV to promote his bombshell book, Spare, in which he made multiple allegations about the royal family. During his conversation with interviewer Tom Bradby in January, Harry was asked if he would travel to London for the coronation.
