‘I’m on their side,’ says the narrator. Richard Fitzwilliams alleges Meghan and Harry had ‘control’ over Oprah’s chat.
According to PR guru Richard Fitzwilliams, MEGHAN MARKLE and her husband Prince Harry had “complete control” over their interview with Oprah Winfrey, despite the couple’s “wider distrust” of the media.
The Sussexes’ multi-year production arrangement with Netflix, according to Richard Fitzwilliams, 71, is not just a money-maker for the couple, but also a reflection of their “wider distrust of broadcast media.” According to the public relations expert, they only agreed to their historic interview with Oprah Winfrey in March because they had “complete control” over the situation.
“I think the control in the Oprah Winfrey interview [for CBS]was quite total,” he says.
“She was on their side and knew what message they intended to convey, just as I believe they anticipated what questions would be asked.
“They were going for emotion, and they got a positive response right away in the places they needed it.”
“I believe they’ll expect more of the same from Netflix, and that contract will, of course, pay out handsomely for them.” “In this week’s Radio Times, he continued.
Meghan and Prince Harry stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family at the start of the year, and they have since relocated to Los Angeles with their two children, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, two, and Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, a newborn.
Since then, the couple has spoken openly about the challenges they experienced as active members of the monarchy, most recently in a groundbreaking interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.
A royal author, Lady Colin Campbell, has already commented on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s assertion that a member of the Royal Family made a remark about Archie’s skin color before he was born.
She stressed that the Royal Family is not racist and that Meghan’s biracial origin is not a source of concern.
Lady Colin asserted, “When it comes to racism, no one is to blame.
“There were no reservations about Meghan’s skin tone.”
In her interview with Oprah, the Duchess said that a senior member of the Royal Family had made a remark about “how black” her son Archie Mountbatten’s skin might be.
“They were saying they didn’t want him to be a Prince or Princess, because that would be against procedure, and that he wasn’t going to receive,” she told Oprah.
