Oprah, Meghan, & Harry Memes to Make Your Day Better

Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry was a rare moment in Twitter monoculture. Almost everyone on the platform was discussing it as it aired, either earnestly or ironically. Takes were flying around in real time, especially in regards to Markle’s mistreatment at the hands of the royal family. People were lauding Oprah’s interviewing skills, laughing at Prince Harry’s exposure of his dad not returning his calls, and curiously wondering how a family that essentially invented modern colonial imperialism and exploitation could be so gosh darn racist.

For some the interview was shocking and revealing. For others it was just downright sad. Either way, it was extremely meme-able.

One good thing about Twitter monoculture is that you don’t have to actually tune in to a given event to know a decent amount about it. Another good thing is that when the format lends itself to memes— like, say, an emotional back-and-forth interview—posters strike quickly. Regardless how the interview made you feel, or even if you didn’t watch a single second, you can enjoy it through silly screengrabs and dumb jokes. That’s the beauty of the internet, baby.

Anyway, here are our favorite Twitter memes from the interview.
