Holly Willoughby Defends Harry & Meghan’s Decision To Do ‘Tell-All’ Oprah Interview

Holly Willoughby has defended Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to do a ‘tell-all’ Oprah Winfrey interview. 

Speaking during a segment on This Morning, the host said that she doesn’t agree with the backlash they are receiving as they are just ‘doing something with their own best interest at heart’.

However, TV presenter Matthew Wright did not agree.

He said: “I am totally torn by this as much as I think the country is. On the one hand, I know first hand that having a few quid in the bank does not protect you from mental health.

“It is quite clear his mental health and the wellbeing of his family’s mental health is at the forefront of his mind.

“Then I have to say, I almost hate myself for saying it, when you hear it was survivability, just about survivable, but you factor in moving into an £11 million home, signing multimillion-pound contracts with media agencies a lot of people are gonna sit there and think…”

Holly interrupted: “But the money thing is just dressing and distraction isn’t it? Take that away and the story is two people doing something with their own best interest at heart isn’t it, surely?”

Matthew added: “They may have bones to pick with the Royal Family, but you can’t plead mental health, be kind, and then drop a whole lot of bombs on people.”

Holly replied: “To be fair we don’t know what they’ve said about the Royal Family though. You’re just making that assumption.”

The presenter also backed the couple’s right to privacy, regardless of what they choose to share with the press.

She said: “They are allowed to talk about their lives in a way that they want to though.”

Last month, Piers Morgan slammed the couple for their ‘cheesy’ pregnancy announcement, arguing it conflicted with their desire to be left alone.

Taking to Twitter, he said: “They don’t want privacy. They want publicity but only if it’s positive.”
