Oprah Winfrey says Meghan Markle is ‘being portrayed unfairly,’ has a ‘wonderful, loving heart’


Oprah Winfrey is coming to the defense of Meghan Markle.

The television tycoon stooped by “CBS This Morning” on Wednesday to discuss a new mental health partnership initiative with Prince Harry slated to launch next year on Apple‘s new streaming service, and quickly leaped to the defense of her royal mother-to-be pal who remains under a constant microscope.

“I think she’s being portrayed unfairly, and I feel that if people really knew her they would know that she is not only everything we perceive of her in being graceful and dynamic in holding that position, but she just has a wonderful, warm, giving, loving heart,” Winfrey, 65, said of the Duchess of Sussex, 37. “I think it’s very unfair.”

Winfrey’s longtime pal, Gayle King – who attended Markle’s intimate and star-studded baby shower in New York City, also chimed in, telling the television host “she’s very kind. She doesn’t seem to buy into [her bad press] though.”

“I think that’s remarkable that despite everything that’s going on she does not read anything,” said Winfrey, who attended Markle’s wedding to Prince Harry and has even spent personal time with her mother Doria Ragland.
