Oprah Winfrey is joining royal watchers, experts, and commentators alike by weighing in on the situation that is Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and King Charles III’s coronation.

Oprah thinks Harry and Meghan ‘should do what they feel is best’ when it comes to attending King Charles’ coronation
After sitting down with Harry and Meghan in 2021 for a primetime interview, Oprah discussed the couple briefly on CBS Mornings. There to promote her latest — and 100th — book club pick, Ann Napolitano’s Hello Beautiful, Oprah shared what she thinks the pair should do.
“Do you think they should go, do you think they should not go? Is it something you’d like to comment on? I’m listening,” Gayle King, a friend of Oprah’s and Harry and Meghan’s, asked.
“I think they should do what they feel is best for them and their family. That’s what I think,” Oprah replied. “That’s what the bottom line comes down to. What do you feel like is the right thing for you?”
The What Happened to You author also told King Harry and Meghan haven’t come to her for advice. “They haven’t asked me my opinion,” Oprah said.
