Ms Obama is a longtime friend of the former Suits actress and in 2019 called her a “thoughtful leader.”
“My hope is that, when I think about what they’re going through, I think about the importance of family and I just pray that there is forgiveness and there is clarity and love and resolve at some point in time,” Ms Obama told Access Hollywood.
“Because there’s nothing more important than family.”
Meghan also claimed in her interview with Oprah that she had been driven to suicidal thoughts during her time in the royal family.
Ms Obama went on to praise her own family, especially husband Barack Obama for his relationship with their daughters, Malia and Sasha.
“First of all, he loves his daughters with all of his heart. He wants nothing but the best for them. But more importantly, he knows how smart and capable they are as young women and he treats them as equals,” she said.
“They still have discipline and rules and respect, but he encourages them in everything they do. And that’s all you want from a dad.
“Not just for a girl dad, but any dad who is involved and engaged and shows love and stability and consistency. That’s the kind of dad he is.”
Like Harry and Meghan, the ex-president and first lady have content production deals with Netflix and Spotify.
