Gayle King said that she talked to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle days after their bombshell interview with Oprah.
Several talks and debates have sparked since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah. It is not surprising, though, considering all the allegations and claims that they laid out before the public.
While all parties involved have yet to address the assertions formally, This Morning host Gayle King previously revealed that she reached out to the Sussex couple. She said that the Duke of Sussex has already held talks with Prince William and Prince Charles but, it has yet to become productive.
The Daily Express released a report, later on, noting that royal experts deemed this as an “unprecedented” tactic. They also asserted that this would continue for quite some time until the British Royals address the Sussexes’ concerns.
About the “unprecedented tactic” against the royals
Speaking to ABC’s royal podcast, The HeirPod, royal author and commentator Omid Scobie highlighted Prince Harry’s conversation with Gayle King. He said that it was “refreshing to hear someone” share the details behind closed doors directly from the Sussexes.
He continued that the public does not often obtain “detailed insight” into what is happening. In most cases, the rest of the people only get to know more about the events when anonymous sources, like “palace courtiers and aides,” drop hints in the press.
ABC News foreign correspondent Maggie Rulli referred to this dynamic as an “unprecedented” tactic. She shared that it was “shocking” to see that things have continued to change so much in terms of who is taking control of the narrative.
Rulli explained that Buckingham Palace used to do this in the past. But, with what has happened these past few weeks, it reportedly appears that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have become a “powerful voice” and shared specific details before the public even without the royals’ approval.

Prince Harry will likely continue to use it
In the same discussion, Omid Scobie asserted that this dynamic would not likely change in the near future. He claimed that this “tactic may not go away for some time.”
The Finding Freedom author also pointed out that this may only change if the Palace and the rest of the British Royal Family decide to address all the issues. But, until the “resistance” remains apparent, Prince Harry will likely continue to “leak information” about the royals before the public.
