Gayle King is the latest celebrity to speak out in defence of Meghan Markle.
Following Oprah Winfrey’s comments about Meghan being treated unfairly by the media, the American broadcaster said: “I don’t think she’s being treated fairly, I don’t.”
She told Entertainment Tonight: “I think she is sweet, she is loving, she is kind. She’s extremely generous with her time and her spirit, and I wish we heard more about that.”
The CBS This Morning anchor recently attended Meghan’s star-studded baby shower in New York City, and said, “She’s doing OK. She’s doing alright. We don’t have to worry about Meghan Markle and [Prince] Harry. They’re really going to be just fine.”
The 64-year-old also said interviewing Meghan and Harry is on “everybody’s list, including mine”, before teasing, “We’re getting ready to go over to England to shoot some stuff over there, so I’m really really excited about it.”
“And this is the thing, who doesn’t love a good love story? Who doesn’t love a couple that’s in love having their first baby? I’m cheering them both on always, I’m very psyched.”
Gayle also fully supports Meghan and Harry’s decision to keep their birth plan private, breaking with royal tradition.
“I think the beauty of what Harry and Meghan can do, because it’s highly unlikely he will be king, they can really live a different kind of life,” she said.
“They’re still part of the royal family, they love being part of the royal family and all that comes with that, but I think it also gives them breathing room for things that aren’t traditional.”
“Listen, nothing about their relationship is traditional, and I think that’s a great thing,” she added.
