Ahead of the Duchess of Sussex and her husband Prince Harry's 2021 primetime interview with Oprah Winfrey, Frankel tweeted, "Cry me a river... the plight of being a game show host, fairly unknown actress, to suffering in a palace, with tiaras and 7-figure weddings for TWO WHOLE YEARS to being a household name w @Oprah on speed dial, fetching 7m for interviews, hundreds of millions in media deals."

Despite being hard on the disgraced royals, she did later tweet that she had sympathy for the intense media attention they deal with. "I 100% give Harry a break. This isn’t the way to generate less press & cannot be filed under the guise of wanting privacy to prevent a repeat of previous events," Frankel said, adding, "If you hate me for saying it here don’t listen to my podcast... it’s littered with my opinion."
