Fox’s Neil Sean reported, “Meghan almost buckled when informed she would be sharing a car with Sophie – after all, she had expected to drive in with her husband Prince Harry.” But when he agreed to walk behind the coffin of the late queen all that changed, causing Meghan to have, some say a slight “moment.”
In 2021, Meghan and Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey sent shockwaves around the world. In the tell-all interview, Meghan and Harry made several controversial revelations about the British royal family and how unfairly they treated the couple and their newborn child Archie, back then.
Later, during an interview, Sophie also took a direct dig at the famous host Winfrey. During her interview with a British tabloid when asked about the interview, she said, “Oprah Who?”.
