The Oprah interview sent these contrasting headlines about Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton viral all over again
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey is pretty much the only thing anyone is talking about today.
Just imagine what will happen when we finally get to watch the whole thing for ourselves when it airs on ITV on Monday night.
Large sections of the media appear to be too busy criticising the couple for giving the interview in the first place to actually address the issues of racism and royal animosity that they raise in the extraordinary two-hour exchange.
We mention this because actor Samuel West went viral when he shared these contrasting headlines about Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, as highlighted by a Buzzfeed article a little while back.
It was instructive to return to this @BuzzFeed story comparing headlines about Kate with headlines about Meghan.
