Oprah Winfrey Denies Rumors She Advised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry On Their Royal Exit

As the world continues to make sense of #Megxit, plenty of speculation regarding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's decision to step back from their royal duties are beginning to surface—starting with Oprah Winfrey's involvement in their unprecedented move.

On Thursday, Page Six reported that Oprah, who is a close friend to the couple and attended their 2018 wedding, advised the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on how to "break free" from the royals, noting that the SuperSoul Sunday host encouraged the couple to move to North America and capitalize on their Sussex Royal brand.

But, in a statement to NBC on Friday, Oprah insisted that she was not behind it. "Meghan and Harry do not need my help in figuring out what's best for them," she said. "I care about them both and support whatever decisions they make for their family."
