Meghan Markle prince Harry and Oprah interview reactions

Prince Harry and Meghan late on Sunday gave their first major TV interview since stepping back from the British royal family a year ago.

Following is a selection of reactions on social media:

REPUBLIC, CAMPAIGN GROUP FOR ABOLITION OF THE MONARCHY

“The monarchy has just been hit by its worst crisis since the abdication in 1936. Whether for the sake of Britain or for the sake of the younger royals this rotten institution needs to go.”

SERENA WILLIAMS, U.S. TENNIS PLAYER

Meghan Markle, my selfless friend, lives her life – and leads by example – with empathy and compassion. She teaches me every day what it means to be truly noble. Her words illustrate the pain and cruelty she’s experienced.”

“Among the revelations from the Meghan and Harry interview is Meghan’s struggle with mental health. Her honesty will hopefully lead to more acceptance and more help for those who need it.”

FORMER ‘STAR TREK’ ACTOR GEORGE TAKEI

“Maybe they should just make Oprah queen and call it a day.”

SAEED JONES, U.S. AUTHOR

“WHEW, they almost killed this woman. I’m so glad Meghan and Harry got that baby and got the hell out of there.”

ANA NAVARRO-CARDENAS, GUEST CO-HOST OF TALK SHOW ‘THE VIEW’

“OOF. There hasn’t been this much English tea spilled in America since the Boston Tea Party.”

ABBY D. PHILIP. CNN POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT

“This is heartbreaking.”

NINA PARKER, E! NEWS CORRESPONDENT

“You know why Black women believe Meghan? Because we know exactly what micro aggressions look like. And how they slowly drive you insane.”

BRITTANY PACKNETT CUNNINGHAM, U.S. BLACK ACTIVIST AND PODCAST HOST

“The difference in treatment between Meghan and Kate is one of the clearest examples of the misogynoir at play & is a reminder that if they can do that to a Duchess, it’s happening to Black women everyday.”
