John Oliver's Past Remarks On Royal Family Resurface After Markle Interview

A past interview with John Oliver has resurfaced this week following Oprah Winfrey's special with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The host of “Last Week Tonight” sat down with fellow late night host Stephen Colbert in 2018, and when asked about the royal wedding, Oliver's words now strike an eerie cord. “I would not blame [Meghan] if she pulled out of this at the last minute,” Oliver told Colbert, alluding to the royal family as "an emotionally stunted group of fundamentally flawed people doing a very silly pseudo-job."

“I don’t think you need to have just seen the pilot episode of ‘The Crown’ to get a basic sense that she might be marrying into a family that could cause her some emotional complications."

Since the shocking interview with Markle and Harry aired earlier this week, the public forums have erupted with critical reception of the royal family, particularly towards the alleged treatment of the Duchess of Sussex during her limited stay at Buckingham Palace. Online users are finding clips of Oliver's past words to be ominously foretelling.

The Royal Family has since aired a singular statement in response to the explosive tell-all, adding that "Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members."
