The internet was on fire yesterday after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle dropped truth bombshell after truth bombshell in an interview with Oprah. It’s the first one they’ve entertained as a couple since they “stepped back” from the royal family in early 2020. One of the most shocking things the Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed was that someone in the royal family was concerned about baby Archie’s skin color and that Meghan’s mental health deteriorated to the point where she considered suicide. The two-hour interview also touched on their current relationships with the members of the family, watching The Crown, and the gender reveal of their unborn baby — it’s a girl!
After all this info, the internet was divided in more ways than one. There were supporters of the couple, there were haters (Piers Morgan, anyone?), and there are those who prefer to watch the spectacle from the sidelines while making memes. Oprah’s interview might have been heavy, but here’s how the internet is coping with it.
