LOS ANGELES (AP) — There were royal victims and villains in Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah Winfrey. But there was only one immediate and clear winner: the American media queen.

While the couple drew both strong support and rebukes for detailing why they fled Britain and their royal roles, Winfrey burnished her stature as a master interviewer with Sunday’s special that rivaled “The Crown”’ for drama and heartache.

She was in her element, breaking news and making entertainment. Megan revealed that she was driven to consider suicide because of how she was treated by the palace and British tabloids. The former “Suits” actor and her husband and son now live in Southern California.
