Cape Town - CBS news anchor and Oprah Winfrey’s bestie, Gayle King, supports Prince Harry and Meghan’s decision to keep the details of the birth of their baby private.

Just one day after Oprah made comments that the Duchess of Sussex was being treated unfairly, Gayle also came to Meghan’s defence, People reports.

"I don’t think she’s being treated fairly... I think she’s sweet, she’s loving, she’s kind," she said. "She’s extremely generous with her time and her spirit, and I wish we heard more about that."

Gayle then tipped her hat to the royal couple for deciding to keep the impending birth private.

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, famously posed outside St Mary’s Hospital in London with each of her three children with Prince William after they were born – a tradition that Buckingham Palace says Meghan and Harry will ditch, O magazine reports.

"I think the beauty of what Harry and Meghan can do ­– because it’s highly unlikely he’ll be king – they can really live a different kind of life," Gayle said.

"They're still part of the royal family, they love being part of the royal family and all that comes with that, but I think it also gives them breathing room for things that aren’t traditional. Listen, nothing about their relationship is traditional, and I think that’s a great thing."

Gayle added that despite the negative press the duchess has received, particularly in the British media, Meghan is doing well.

"She’s doing all right. We don’t have to worry about Meghan and Harry. They’re really going to be just fine."

Gayle's comments come after Oprah announced an exciting collaboration with Prince Harry – a mental health series launching on Apple next year, Hello! magazine reports.

And already the duo have had several meetings in London to get the project up and running.

"Our hope is that it will have an impact on reducing the stigma and allowing people to know that they are not alone, allowing people to speak up about it and being able to identify it for themselves and in their friends," Oprah previously said.
