The Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat down with the US chat show host in March and discussed their decision to step back as senior working royals. Meghan and Harry’s allegations, particularly on race and mental health issues, reportedly left the Firm in turmoil.
Royal expert Russell Myers said the interview went down like a “lead balloon”.
He told talkRADIO: “They have been a distraction for the family.
“The Oprah Winfrey interview went down like a lead balloon.
“There will be quite a lot of dissatisfaction in the camp and it remains to be seen whether they will ever be brought back in.”

Mr Myers said he believes Harry was “a bit sheepish” seeing his family at the funeral after the bombshell Oprah interview.
He added: “It was the first time he has spoken to many of them since that Oprah Winfrey interview where he accused them of all manners of things.”
The royal expert claimed that Harry was not automatically welcomed back into the fold.
He said the Duke “went back to America with his tail between his legs”.
Mr Myers explained how the rest of the Royal Family “are very, very united in trying to get back to business”.
