After Oprah Interview, John Oliver’s 2018 Comments On Meghan Markle Joining The Royal Family Go Viral

It’s been several days since Oprah Winfrey’s surprisingly honest interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. It has since then started making headlines all over the world and people are still passionately discussing the whole situation.

In the midst of all of these discussions, another interview, namely one with John Oliver on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, has also started going viral for, you can say, predicting all of this with many coming out and saying that he really hit the nail with this one.

So, if you’re not aware, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Dukes of Sussex, have recently given an interview to Oprah Winfrey that has exposed a lot of not-so-good things about the British Royal Family.

If you want a more detailed account of what things about the Royal Family Harry and Meghan never told anyone that they disclosed in the interview, you can read our recent article about it.

The reason for that is John Oliver “hit the nail” with explaining how Meghan marrying into the royal family isn’t the best idea

Anywho, in light of this, someone uncovered Stephen Colbert’s interview with John Oliver from early 2018 that incidentally also talked about the Royal Wedding between Meghan and Harry and it’s been going viral since.

The reason for that is that Oliver was asked whether he was excited about the wedding, and he was honest about it—no, not really. And he managed to effectively predict the current Meghan and Harry situation back then by sharing his thoughts on the wedding.

Mind you, this was back in 2018, so many were left amazed by how accurately he nailed it

He started off that he wouldn’t blame Meghan for pulling out at the last minute: “I don’t think you need to have just seen the pilot episode of The Crown to get a basic sense of ‘she might be marrying into a family that could cause her some emotional complications.’”

He continued to say that the Royal family is an “emotionally stunted group of fundamentally flawed people doing a very silly pseudo-job” that just can’t be good for anyone.

“So, I hope she likes it. It’s going to be weird for her. I would not marry into the royal family, I’m a commoner, I would not be welcome, especially after what I just said,” said Oliver.

The interview assumed a lighter tone with all of its jokes and whatnot, but Oliver did continue pointing out certain things about monarchies that are outdated, like knighthood, what it means, and how it’s just odd.

Many were surprised by how well Oliver hit the nail with this prediction back in 2018. Sure, you don’t even need to watch The Crown to understand all of this, as this knowledge is self-explanatory to many, but it didn’t stop people from sharing the heck out of this video.
