Oprah Winfrey admission to Ellen may be a blow to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

Oprah Winfrey has confessed she “did not care” about her celebrity talk show guests. In a new interview with Ellen DeGeneres, US chat show legend Oprah made the admission.

The admission comes months after she quizzed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for a CBS special in America. The 1 hr 25 minute interview made headlines around the world and left the Royal Family in crisis.Oprah Winfrey admission to Ellen may be a blow to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

67-year-old Oprah yesterday told Ellen: “So many times I would ask questions – particularly of celebrities that I didn’t care about the answer.

“But I was the stand-in, the surrogate for the audience, so I really missed the camaraderie with the audience.Oprah Winfrey admission to Ellen may be a blow to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

“Because as you know, after each show I’d sit and I’d talk with the audience and that’s where a lot of our ideas came from.”

She said: “I know what those feelings are. I also know the feelings leading up to it. So, hearing you say and announcing to the world that it was your instinct and that you thought long and hard about it.Oprah Winfrey admission to Ellen may be a blow to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

This is because anybody would know that for something that is as powerful as this show is in other people’s lives, that you would not take that lightly and that the coming to the realisation that now it is time is a process.”

Ellen announced the end of her talk show earlier this week after months of allegations of a toxic working environment.
