Oprah with Meghan and Harry

I’m seeing such polarised views about this interview but I loved it. I loved Oprah’s interview style, I loved that Harry and Meghan had courage, that they were able to rebuild their lives, to have a say and hopefully find a bit more peace in their lives. Let me rephrase it this way- let’s imagine the Royal Family is a coercive man and financially & emotionally controlled a woman (Harry and Meghan). And if the woman found her wings and voice and the bravery to leave, we wouldn’t be vilifying her. But it’s not imagination. Harry and Meghan describe the Royal Family as a coercive force and the decision to leave would have been so much harder than staying. Removing privilege from this story, I found their story and bravery empowering.
