As the reaction and royal experts continue to analyse the Oprah interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, South Africa finally had a chance to see it on Monday evening.

M-Net aired possibly the most controversial interview in some time with members of the royal family since the late Princess Diana’s 1995 interview on BBC.

The couple disclosed quite shocking revelations of suicidal thoughts, a racist relative and Prince Harry admitting he was “trapped”.

The tell-all left many people gobsmacked.

South African celebrities were quick to share their thoughts about the royal family, Queen Elizabeth, who they thought was the racist relative who had “concerns” over Archie’s skin complexion and how brilliantly Oprah handled the interview.

Anele Mdoda, the 947 radio host, said she found it interesting that Meghan was defending the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. Meghan claimed Kate made her cry in the lead up to her wedding about flower girl dresses but Kate then apologised and they moved on.

A report came out six months after the wedding that it was Meghan who made Kate cry. The former duchess dismissed this story and said the reverse actually happened.
