Former 'Suits' Costar Defends Meghan Markle Amid Buckingham Palace Allegations

An interview with Oprah is airing this weekend.

The highly-anticipated Oprah Winfrey interview of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will air this Sunday, but drama has already arisen at the hands of Buckingham Palace.

The couple left Britain and moved to the United States in 2020 after reportedly being treated unfairly by the British press and the royal family, now Duchess of Sussex is apparently "ready to talk" about it.

Upon hearing the news about the interview, Buckingham Palace announced they are investigating claims made in 2018 saying Markle "bullied" several staff members according to CNN.

In a teaser clip of the upcoming interview, Markle claims that there has been an "active role that the firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us."

Following the release of the short clip, Markle's former Suits costar, Patrick J. Adams, defended her on Twitter, saying "find someone else to admonish, berate and torment. My friend Meghan is way out of your league." 

According to CBS This Morning, many are also criticizing the timing of the interview, as Prince Philip is currently in the hospital for a pre-existing heart condition and the rest of the world continues to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gayle King clarified that the Oprah interview was actually shot two weeks ago before Prince Philip was admitted to the hospital.
