Gayle King Makes A Stunning Admission About Meghan Markle

The world is still reeling from the claims made by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in their interview with Oprah Winfrey. And while some people — like Piers Morgan and Charlie Kirk – have come down hard on Meghan, even accusing her of fabricating her story for attention, there are also people who have spoken out in support of what she said. One of those people is Winfrey's good friend, Gayle King.

King has been talking about Winfrey's sit-down with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on CBS This Morning. She relayed that she had told Winfrey that the interview was "blowing up," casting doubt that Winfrey fully grasped the impact and reach that the interview had, according to the Daily Mail. And that's not all that King had to say. In fact, she seems pretty sure about one thing that could really change the narrative for Meghan.

Gayle King believes Meghan Markle has 'receipts'

Gayle King said she believes that Meghan Markle has receipts — also known as evidence — that support her claims to Oprah, including her allegations of racist discussions about Archie's skin tone. "I think Meghan has plenty of receipts, meaning she's been keeping track of things," King said, according to the Daily Mail.

King isn't the only person to presume that Meghan has kept a running file of what's transpired during her time living under the monarchy's rule. Meghan's friend of nearly two decades, Janina Gavankar, said something similar. "Though their 'recollections may vary,' ours don't because we lived through it with them," Gavankar said, quoting Buckingham Palace's statement, according to Elle. "And there are many emails and texts to support that," she added. Meghan herself has not shared whether or not she has proof of the things that she told Winfrey, but emails usually stay in a person's sent folder for, well, ever.

Janina Gavankar also shared how she felt after reading the statement from Buckingham Palace, which touched on the claims of racism.

"I felt two things," she said, per Page Six. "One side, I thought: I am so thankful that they are finally acknowledging the experience. But on the other side, I am well aware that the family and the staff were well aware of the extent of it."

"I have known [Meghan] for 17 years and I have seen the way she regards the people around her and the people she works with, and I can say she is not a bully," Gavankar stated. "But I can also say that I am personally glad people are doing their due diligence because I also know why someone had to leave, and it was for gross misconduct." She then repeated her claim that there are "plenty of emails and texts about that."

As Gayle King discussed, however, there are still commentators who doubt Megan's side of the story, like Piers Morgan. According to The Express, she criticized the British host for how he spoke on Good Morning Britain about Megan's mental health issues, claiming she was lying. "After that rant though they got over 41,000, or close to 41,000 complaints," King commented on CBS This Morning. " ... You can't say that about someone who's said they needed help." Morgan immediately left the show.

Oprah's 'main' goal was for people to understand why Harry and Megan left

Gayle King also spoke to CBS Boston about the royal family's relationship to the media, describing it as "symbiotic" and "incestuous."

"They feed off each other, and I think Oprah was very surprised to learn that," the reporter revealed. "How is it that you would allow the tabloids to print stuff that you know is not true?"

"So clearly, when you listen to Harry and Megan, there's a lot of wheeling and dealing between the royal family and the tabloids," she continued, referring to how Harry reportedly asked his family to "call the dogs off" and was denied. King also explained what Oprah's primary motivation was while she interviewed the couple.

"When Oprah started the interview, she said her main thing was for people to understand why they left the U.K. It was very important to Harry that people understood he did not blindside the queen despite the narrative that was put out in the British media," King explained. 

In fact, the CBS This Morning host noted that in the Oprah interview, Harry shared that he had "several conversations" with his grandmother, and she was apparently "on board" with the move.
