I friggin’ love how Gayle King is not playing with these fools. CBS News – specifically CBS This Morning, the show which King anchors – has been doing a fantastic job in recent weeks with their royal coverage. It helps that they’ve been given so many exclusives, from Oprah and from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Apparently, Gayle spoke to Meghan and Harry over the weekend and she kind of unloaded on This Morning:
Prince Harry spoke to Prince William over the weekend for the first time following the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, it emerged today. Gayle King, who is close friends with Oprah and Meghan Markle, revealed on CBS This Morning today that Harry had spoken to the Duke of Cambridge and his father Prince Charles.
She said: ‘Well I’m not trying to break news, but I did actually call them to see how they were feeling, and it’s true, Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father too. The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive. But they are glad that they have at least started a conversation. And I think what is still upsetting to them is the palace keep saying they want to work it out privately, but yet, they believe these false stories are coming out that are very disparaging against Meghan, still.’
‘No one in the Royal family has talked to Meghan yet, at this particular time. And I think it’s frustrating for them to see that it’s a racial conversation about the Royal Family when all they wanted all along was for the Royals to intervene and tell the Press to stop with the unfair, inaccurate, false stories that definitely have a racial slant. And until you can acknowledge that, I think it’s going to be hard to move forward. But they both want to move forward with this and they both want healing in this family. At the end of the day, that is Harry’s family.’
She added: ‘The bullying thing was raised in 2018 and now there’s an ongoing investigation about bullying from Meghan Markle, when anyone who has worked with her will tell you exactly who she is. You know, she’s really a very sweet, caring person. And as I say, Meghan has documents to back up everything that she said on Oprah’s interview. Everything.’

THE TEA!! It’s piping hot! So, Harry has spoken with his brother and father in the wake of the interview and the conversations were “not productive.” Meaning, William screamed down the phone like a rage monster and Charles was passive-aggressive and patronizing, at least that’s my guess. And Harry was probably like “you guys really don’t get it, do you?” And no one has spoken to Meghan – of course, because they’re still trying to destroy her and it’s perfectly clear that no one in that family actually gives a sh-t about her (and she’s heavily pregnant right now too).
Gayle hits on something really important – that the wave of abuse is ongoing. “What is still upsetting to them is the palace keep saying they want to work it out privately, but yet, they believe these false stories are coming out that are very disparaging against Meghan, still.” Yep. Because all of these people – the Windsors and the British media – are so stuck in this completely bonkers paradigm where they think if only they can delegitimize Meghan’s claims of racist treatment, then racism won’t exist in the Windsor family or British media. That’s why there’s such an emphasis in the past week on nitpicking Meghan’s claims in particular.
“And as I say, Meghan has documents to back up everything that she said on Oprah’s interview. Everything.” AND I OOP.
Update: The video is amazing.
