American talk show host Oprah Winfrey may well be furious with Prince Harry after his chat with James Corden on The Late Late Show.
That’s the views of royal author Tina Brown who believes the Duke of Sussex was ill-advised in talking to the British presenter.
The author thinks Harry may have “dissed” Oprah in doing so.
Tina wrote in The Spectator that she feels the 36-year-old may have violated the “rules of the game in Hollywood” after he aired his feelings towards the press to James.
“In Hollywood there’s been much consternation about how the timing of Harry’s larky bus trip stunt with James Corden once again dissed the Queen — not his grandma for a change, but America’s Queen, Oprah Winfrey,” she wrote.
“Who gives an exclusive heart-to-heart to Oprah, then goes off before it’s aired and does a knockabout with Corden when Her Media Majesty’s much-touted scoop is still in the can?”
Tina went on to slate the Gavin & Stacey star for being “sly enough” to slip in questions that could dilute the Oprah interview’s exclusivity.
She said that it’s important for Harry and Meghan to follow the rules of Hollywood, just as they had to follow the rules at Buckingham Palace.
Despite the perceived lack of courtesy to the American presenter, Tina admitted that the interview had gone down well with the viewing public.
A recent sneak peak of Harry and Meghan’s chat with Oprah also revealed that the Duchess of Sussex doesn’t think she should be expected to keep quiet over her experiences.
The former Suits star claimed that she can’t stay silent to the false accusations the pair have faced.
“I don’t know how they could expect that, after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that the firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us,” she told Oprah.
The eagerly anticipated interview will air stateside on Sunday night before hitting UK screens on Monday.
