I’ve only seen clips of the Oprah interview with Harry and Meghan.
I don’t know if that is a disqualifying point or if it gives me an overview perspective?
When anyone seeks a media exposure my first question is “Why?”.
I’m not at all unsympathetic to the demanding lifestyle structures within the British Royal Family. I am a bit uninterested, though.
But, the “whys” of what’s going on are a bit intriguing.
My first realization is that Harry and Meghan are seeking sympathy for something that each of them ought to have been well aware of. Their interview seems timed as a PR angle most of all hoping to start or change an unpleasant public narrative.
Secondly, of all the people in the world ‘struggling’, there are probably 5 billion of them whom I’d find more deserving of my sympathy.
I don’t begrudge anyone their fame and fortune and fully realize those people have most of the same life struggles as everyone. It’s the ‘flavor’ of their complaints that are unpalatable to me. Innuendo and feelings have no place in something proposed as serious and ‘news worthy’.
So, I’m not inclined to ever watch it in its entirety.
I don’t feel terribly sorry for them.
And, I suspect that Oprah and Meghan are promoting claims of racism for sensational reasons. (If not, their perception of their own claims of ongoing victimhood is out of whack. They need to grow up.)
IMO-Claims of racism are so prevalent that they hold no power anymore.
I wish them all the best.

I admit that I don’t have a whole lot of sympathy for Harry and Meghan, but I do empathize, at least a little, with the situation they are in. If that makes any sense.
You’re not alone. 😉
Hence, the interest. Thanks for your interesting prompt.
