Whoopi Goldberg, a close friend of Prince Harry, congratulated the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for the birth of their baby boy, and unconsciously spilled insider information about the new parents on “The Talk.”


With the birth of a new royal happening, it is no surprise that everyone is talking about the big news, including “The Talk’s” co-anchor, Whoopi Goldberg. On an episode, she extended her congratulations to the two new parents shortly after playing a clip of Prince Harry beaming while sharing the news of his son's arrival.


“He’s got a new baby, he’s got an old lady that he likes, you know, life is good,” joked the co-host.

A subtle information Goldberg also disclosed was the relationship of the Queen and Meghan Markle, 37, when she responded to Joey Behar asking if the Queen “was okay with it.”

“Well yeah. The Queen actually likes her, I believe,” Goldberg replied.


Her short remark shut down all the rumors and reports of the Queen not liking Markle, given that she is a close friend of Harry. This comes as a relief for those who were thinking that there was tension between the two royals.

Another piece of information that the “Sister Act” star gave out was that Harry and Markle might be planning to have more children, which does not really come as a surprise after Harry hinted that he wanted kids since his younger days.

“I just think this is their first, and there might be others, and one of those babies is going to pop out looking like me,” Goldberg said.


This was not the first time the co-anchor spoke about the change happening within the royal family through her comments. In 2017, she shared her sentiments regarding the announcement of Harry and Markle, saying that “the hue of the royal family is about to shift,” which is a positive thing for girls who don’t believe in fairytale endings.

Harry and Markle introduced their baby to the world on Wednesday, as they posed inside St. George’s Hall at Windsor Castle on Wednesday, veering away from tradition in the British royal family.


Markle wore a white sleeveless mini dress while her husband wore a gray suit while holding baby Sussex in his arms. She also shared that her baby has “the sweetest temperament” and that the past few days have been special for them.

Their son was born on the early morning of May 6, weighing 7lbs and 3oz, as stated in the official announcement posted outside the Buckingham Palace.
