It's hard to be anywhere on the internet and not come across the most explosive interview of 2021 so far: the former Sussex royals with Oprah Winfrey. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sat down with the talk show host to spill the details on exiting the royal family, dropping their titles and everything that led to it, including the abhorrent alleged racism she faces at the hands of British tabloids and critics.

But the one thing that seems to have won over the internet was the interviewer's response to Meghan revealing there was chatter around how 'dark' her son Archie's skin was going to be before the couple's first child was born.

Clips from the interview will reveal how Winfrey was not only shocked, but she paused for more than just a few moments in absolute silence to reiterate and dig deeper into what Meghan had just revealed. The former 'Suits' actress, who is currently pregnant with the couple's second child, also revealed that it's a baby girl for them next. But all of that celebration was set aside for a brief moment as Winfrey tried to wrap her mind around the ordeal the biracial former Duchess was put through.

Winfrey tried to find out who spurred that conversation surrounding Archie's skin color, but Meghan refrained from taking names as she claimed it would be 'too damaging' for the royals. But that didn't take away from viewers' delight as they believe Winfrey's interviews are a 'masterclass in the craft', and have dubbed her the 'best interviewer of all time'.

Taking it to Twitter, social media users didn't just react to the allegations made by Meghan, but were also quick to point out how "Oprah is the best interviewer" ever. One user wrote "Oprah is the best interviewer of all time. She could literally interview a blade of grass and I’d be over here like. Another commented, "Oprah is probably the best long-form interviewer I've ever seen, certainly of my lifetime, every single time she sits down with someone it's a goddamn masterclass in the craft." 

Getting specific, one tweeted: "Honestly @Oprah gave one of the best interviews in Years. She’s a master interviewer while putting her foot down about Harry’s conversation w/his family about his sons skin tone. This moment was among my favorites." Some also pointed out how Winfrey's interview was a masterclass in journalism. "For journalism students watching #MeghanAndHarry, watch how Oprah asks a follow up. Watch when she interrupts and when she doesn't. Watch how present she is. Watch how she listens. Watch how she doesn't rush. Ever," they shared. 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 

Also acknowledging longterm friend Tyler Perry's contribution to having this interview out, one user tweeted, "On a final note #Oprah is and always will be the best interviewer and #Tylerperry is the kind of friend everyone needs." Explaining the title she's been awarded further, another elaborated: "MY GOD. Oprah is legit the BEST INTERVIEWER IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE. She knows exactly how to lob the hard balls and how to deepen the interview to get to the good stuff."
