Oprah Could Win 2021 Emmy Award for Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Controversial Interview

Actual members of the Royal Family in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could play a part in the Emmys as their controversial and revealing interview with TV legend Oprah Winfrey is up for a prestigious Emmy award.

The award is for The Best Hosted Non-Fiction Special and Oprah is up against

  • My Guest Needs No Introduction
  • Vice
  • United Shades of America
  • Stanley Tucci – Searching for Italy

Oprah who has one previous Emmy award would be the winner rather than the royal couple, but it would surely reignite the controversy around the couple who have cut many of their official ties with the British Royal family.
