Hayley Kiyoko, Lauren Jauregui & More React to Oprah’s Bombshell Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Interview
From Oprah appreciation to a suggested Queen Elizabeth appearance on "Red Table Talk," Twitter had thoughts about the bombshell interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Sunday night was the closest we’ve come to appointment television in quite some time. Indeed, according to early ratings reports, more than 17 million viewers tuned in to the two-hour CBS sit-down — and among those millions of interested watchers were Hayley Kiyoko, Lauren Jauregui, Bette Midler, Jada Pinkett Smith and a host of other celebrities.
The Twitter conversation on Sunday night and beyond buzzed with appreciation for Winfrey’s interviewing skills (“Oprah. That’s it. That’s the tweet,” Kiyoko wrote), empathy for Markle’s discussion of mental health issues (“Questioning the authenticity of suicidal thoughts is both dangerous and damaging,” The Vamps’ James McVey tweeted), and jokes (“ya’ll be play’n way too much,” Pinkett Smith wrote in response to a follower suggesting she invite Queen Elizabeth to her Red Table Talk Facebook Live series).
Boy George, meanwhile, appeared to take the Palace’s side following the interview. “Sadly, Meghan wasn’t prepared to tell us who made these alleged comments about Archie’s skin colour?” he wrote about Meghan and Harry saying there was concern from an unnamed family member about how dark their first-born child’s skin color would be. “I believe she has a responsibility to tell us.” Jauregui took aim at British television personality Piers Morgan, telling him “just take it if you can dish it” when he complained that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s supporters were “trying to silence” his voice.
Below, see all the celebrity reaction to the bombshell interview, which should be available to stream here in the coming days.
