KEY POINTS

  • Gayle King said Prince Harry's conversations with Prince Charles and Prince William after the Oprah interview were "not productive"
  • Some netizens were not happy about King's update because they felt she was sharing too much information
  • Other online users were happy that King gave an update on the Sussexes after the Oprah interview

Prince Harry has already talked to his father, Prince Charles, and brother, Prince William, after his and Meghan Markle's explosive tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Gayle King shared on "CBS This Morning" Tuesday that the Duke of Sussex has already started communicating with his family in the U.K. However, their discussions were "not productive."

"Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father, too," she said. "The word I was given was those conversations were not productive. But they are glad that they have at least started a conversation."

Netizens have mixed opinions about King's revelation. Some were happy that she reached out to the Sussexes, but many were not impressed hearing more about the matter because they felt that King’s revelation about the "unproductive' conversations could affect the royals' future talks.

"This was a private conversation between two brothers and father and son ... why broadcast to the world how the FIRST conversation went?  It taints any future conversations," one commented.

"Shoddy journalism. Private conversation aired on national television. One-sided & inaccurate information stated as well," another added

"This is such an invasion of privacy. Talks will be few and far between because now it is known that any conversation will be broadcast on television," a third user wrote.

"How pathetic, broadcasting details of a private conversation. No conversation with their family will be kept to themselves and they’ll wonder why no one in the family will call them," a fourth user added.

Several were concerned about King sharing her conversation with the Sussexes. According to the Twitter users, the royal family would have second thoughts speaking with Prince Harry and Markle "when every conversation is immediately sent to the press like this."

Meanwhile, some felt that it was just fine because the new reports give a balance coverage of the Sussexes.

"The Royal family has been leaking info about H&M for 4 years. Now we're getting balanced coverage. Finally Harry & Meghan can speak, too," one commented.

"Its not so much ‘power-sharing’ but NOW being able to speak ON RECORD to counteract the leaked, slanted narrative from ‘palace sources’ in the UK. The London  Times on Sunday  already reported that H spoke with Ch and W. So, there you have it," another added.

Prince Harry told Winfrey during the interview that Prince Charles did not pick up his calls when he stepped down from his royal duties, but they are already on speaking terms at present. Meanwhile, Prince William said last week he would talk to Prince Harry when asked about the Sussexes following the interview.
