Patio chairs used in Harry-Meghan's interview with Oprah sell out
The chairs featured on the explosive tell-all interview of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with Oprah Winfrey sold out within 48 hours of its broadcast. They were made by Christopher Knight Home, the namesake furniture brand of the actor best known for playing Peter Brady on The Brady Bunch. At least 17 million watched the interview along with the patio chairs Winfrey, Markle, and Harry sat on.
You cannot buy the chairs anymore (at least for now)
While most viewers were concerned with all tea that Harry and Markle spilled during the interview about the Royal family, others couldn't help but notice the beautiful patio furniture. The wicker and acacia outdoor chairs retail for $554 (around Rs. 40,000) a pair. In case you were thinking of buying them, unfortunately, there is no scheduled restock date for those chairs.
'Meghan and Harry got 'Knighted' in a way never anticipated'
The former Brady Bunch star and furniture brand owner Christopher Knight said that he was "honored" that his furniture grabbed eyeballs. "I am honored to have the patio chairs from my collection become the seat of the most fascinating famous sit down in recent history. It would appear Meghan and Prince Harry got 'Knighted' in a way never anticipated (sic)," he wrote on Instagram.
'Who would have thought the furniture would have been noticed'
The interview covered it all: Racism, Royal life, its limitations
Harry and Markle's interview with Winfrey was a revelation to many, as the couple had a candid conversation about the inner working of the British Royal family. They talked about being in a dark place and not getting the help they needed. Besides mental health, they also discussed racism, the limitations of being a working Royal, and, the cruelty of the British press.
Winfrey netted over $7 million from the interview
Winfrey is said to have netted over $7mn from the sensationally rattling interview. According to a report by The Wall Street Journal, CBS paid a licensing fee of somewhere in the ballpark of $7-9 million to Harpo Productions, Winfrey's production company, to secure the rights for the two-hour-long interview. The skilled host is starting a new interview series called Super Soul on Discovery+.
