“Was there money exchange involved in the Oprah Winfrey interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry? If yes, then how much? I cannot even begin to imagine the number of zeroes on the cheque. This interview was big business for all concerned,” writes Subhash K Jha.

CINE STUCK: Did Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Charge For Spilling The Beans In The Controversially Popular Oprah Winfrey Interview?
Watching the most talked-about interview of  the decade with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle was not easy. There they were ripping British royalty apart with a concentrated but curbed contempt for all things royal. It was like the Buckingham Palace being dismantled, brick by brick. Was it all a spontaneous overflow of pent-up emotions? Good lord, no! The couple knew exactly what it was saying, and for how long. I could also see the hammer falling on each episode of a condensed miniseries that was Oprah With Meghan & Harry. Every revelation seemed…how do I put it..sponsored. Every segment of the true confessions  was  like  a ticking  bomb. The couple and their host knew the world was hanging on to every word.

 This brings me to the question of  the money exchanged. Was there any? If yes, how much did Meghan and Harry charge for the scoop interview? I cannot even begin to imagine the number of zeroes on the cheque. This interview was big business for all concerned. I think Harry and  Meghan wanted to prove that they could continue living royally even without the vaults at Buckingham Palace  being accessible to them any more.

Let’s  be honest. The  couple  was already disinherited  from the royal  coffers. By speaking of their experiences they have  shown that their lifestyle need not suffer as  long as they wash their royal linen in public. Being  a royal deserter is  far more lucrative  than being royalty.

This  is not  to  suggest by any means, that  any of  what  Harry and Meghan spoke to Oprah about was  untrue. Every word had a ring of  truth to  it.As one shocking  revelation tumbled  out  after  another, we heard  on Monday  morning  the  death knell  being sounded  for the British  royalty.  As  if  the  much-watched series The Crown had not done a decent enough  job of peeling off all the glamour and mystique surrounding Buckingham Palace, Harry and Meghan have showed the royal Brits  to  be bigoted biased racists.

Meghan says  the royals at  Buckingham were  worried   about  the skin-colour  of Meghan-Harry’s  children. She  also  talks  about not feeling safe at the  palace. If I were  Harry or Meghan I would stay away from  not just Buckingham Palace  but  Britain on the whole. After what  they’ve said about the greatest  haloed  royals  of  Great Britain I doubt they would be welcome  home. But not  to worry. Harry and Meghan can reinvent their legacy  in the US. From being royalty they can now work  towards making royalty .

Why not the tell-all memoir? An expanded  version of the Oprah interview with  more masala. For example when Harry says his allowance  was  cut off we can have  him trying to sneak into the family vault to  get money to buy Meghan a birthday present.

 Fact and fiction can happily co-exist.  The exiled prince can live happily ever  after with his princess who reminds us so much of Harry’s mom Diana. Except that Harry’s father  didn’t stand by Harry’s mother. By showing the world what the marital  vows  actually mean Prince Harry has won more fans than he  would have ever had as an active  member  of  the royal  family.
