Not So Fast: Oprah Winfrey Denies She Advised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on 'Megxit'

Have you heard?

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have basically quit the Royal Family.

Shortly after news circulated that the couple plans to resign as senior members of the family and will spend time between the U.S. and Canada, it was also reported that Oprah Winfrey helped advise the couple on their move.

via People:

“Meghan and Harry do not need my help figuring out what’s best for them,” Winfrey, who famously attended the couple’s wedding in May 2018, tells PEOPLE.

“I care about them both and support whatever decisions they make for their family.”

Winfrey made headlines on Thursday after Page Six published a report claiming that the media mogul, 65, was one of the first people Meghan, 38, and Harry, 35, leaned on regarding advice on “breaking free.” The report also claims that Winfrey encouraged the couple to move to America and build their own brand.

The outlet also reports that a plethora of Meghan and Harry’s other A-list friends, including the Obamas and George and Amal Clooney have also given them advice.

A rep for the Clooneys did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

In their bombshell announcement, which they made on Wednesday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said they are stepping away from their royal roles and making plans to split their time between the U.K. and North America.

And there’s that!
