Oprah Winfrey defends Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
In recent weeks, Harry, 36, and Markle, 39, have been particularly vocal about their lives as members of the British royal family – a rarity for those close to the monarchy.
They made statements of racism and ignorance of psychiatric needs in a revealing interview with Winfrey in March, while Harry criticized his father’s parenthood on a recent podcast episode and accused his family of turning a blind eye on appeals for help against public criticism in his series “The Me You Can’t See.”
The two have been criticized for their increasingly frequent public statements given that they moved to California last year in an attempt to achieve more privacy.

Winfrey, however, does not have it and defends his business partner and his wife.
“I ask for privacy and I talk all the time,” she said on the “Today” show on Friday. “I think being able to have a life where you are not overrun with photographers or people flying over your head or invading your life is what every person wants and deserves.”
She said that critics of Harry’s vocalization “miss” the idea that he wants to maintain a minimum of privacy as a basic desire.

“Privacy does not mean silence,” she added.
Additionally, Winfrey, 67, said Harry and Markle “shared no regrets” with her during their revealing interview.
“I understood what had happened to them and I wanted the rest of the world to leave so that I could answer the question: why did they leave?” she explained. “And I think by the time this interview was done people got it.”
