A columnist for a British news agency asked Tuesday if Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, “reached” CNN after a package from an international correspondent questioning various aspects of the Royal’s Oprah Winfrey interview disappeared from her website.
The claim comes just over a month after British journalist Piers Morgan said Markle complained to a UK regulator about his now former employer, ITV, after criticizing “Good Morning Britain” that ultimately led to his breakup Program led.
Regarding the Winfrey interview, UK Daily Mail columnist Dan Wootton pointed out that CNN correspondent Max Foster aired a “first class” report in London that allegedly exposed many of the allegations that Markle made against the royal family had raised.
Foster’s report – 18 days after the Winfrey program – included reports from former family members talking about how the Windsors worked hard to prepare Markle for their unique and high-profile new life.
Wootton noted that the report was included in numerous bubbly accounts of the Markle and Prince Harry interview and the passing on of their “truth”.
“The show was so remarkable that I immediately tweeted about it because it was the first indication that the left-wing US broadcast media might finally shed some light on the obvious inconsistencies in the interview,” Wootton wrote on the Daily Mail website.
During the report, Foster said that there are actually several critics pointing to inconsistencies in Harry and Meghan’s report to Winfrey.
The report, labeled “Royal Reckoning” on a chyron, began with Foster noting that the discussion of issues such as suicide prevention and allegations of racism is serious and difficult to argue on either “side” of an observer. It contained a series of 7 challenges to allegations made during the interview.
One of the criticisms described in the now-missing CNN report was that the Sussexes had chosen Winfrey and CBS to air their interview instead of fulfilling a prior commitment to work with more grassroots or independent media.
Another claim was that Markle Harry had never studied online, although a former girlfriend allegedly said she had always been “intrigued” by the royals, particularly the late Diana, Princess of Wales – as well as a controversial comment about being married to Harry three days before their solemn ceremony.
This claim was apparently invalidated by the Daily Mail, which received a copy of the marriage certificate.

In his column, Wootton said the potentially harmful report was “erased from history” by CNN but added that a source for the Atlanta-based broadcaster told him that the removal did not occur due to outside pressure.
He noted that video reports are sometimes removed due to copyright infringement or third party sunset clauses.
Wootton added that his sources within the royal family are looking into whether the network was “startled” by the prospect of disrupting its “bright” audience.
