Oprah Winfrey says she’s Meghan and Harry daughter Lilibet’s godmum ‘by default’

Oprah Winfrey has addressed a rumour that says Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will make her Lilibet’s godmother.

The 67-year-old American TV personality is close to the pair who recently welcomed their first daughter, Lilibet.

Downplaying rumours in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Oprah Winfrey said that she is godmother ‘by default’ because she is good friends with the family already.

"I don't need to be a godmother, I'm a godmother by default," Oprah said during the interview.

"I'm a neighbour, I'm a friend and all that, you probably need someone younger to be the godmother."

Meghan, Harry and Oprah have remained close since she attended the Royal Wedding in May 2018.

Oprah confessed in the interview with Entertainment Tonight that she is a huge fan of the couple’s new baby girl’s name. And she also revealed that she would be sending the parents of two a special something for Father's Day.

Meghan and Harry recently welcomed Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, named after her great grandmother, The Queen of England, and her grandmother, Princess Diana.

Oprah’s revelation comes after a rocky few months involving Meghan, Harry, Oprah and the Royal Family.

Oprah has shown support for the couple after they decided to step down from Royal duties, she also welcomed their move across the pond.

Oprah and the couple are now neighbours in America.

Harry and Meghan have been involved with multiple revealing interviews with the American TV presenter and famous interviewer.

The first interview between the American TV personality and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex came about earlier this year in March.

The interview was initially aired in America on the TV network CBS, and later aired on ITV on March 8.

Making waves among the Royal family, the two-hour interview named Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special, pulled in 17.1 million viewers for the American network initially.

In Harry's two most recent interviews with Oprah, he spoke openly about struggling with his mental health.
