The Brief: After Oprah's viral interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Twitter users began sharing memes that pictured Wanda Maximoff and Vision in their place.
This is the cross over many of us didn’t know we needed. On March 7, Oprah interviewed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry about the royal family’s mistreatment of Markle and the events that resulted because of it, like Markle and Harry leaving the United Kingdom and stepping back from their senior positions. The interview lead to some incredible insight into the workings of the royal family, as well as many incredible memes.
Some of the funniest to emerge were those that swapped Markle and Harry for Wanda Maximoff and Vision from Marvel’s WandaVision. The show saw the two characters dealing with their own version of grief and anguish. FYI, there are a few WandaVision spoilers ahead.
Many memes saw Twitter users alter memorable quotes from the interview to fit Wanda and Vision’s WandaVision storylines.

Even in a series of made up memes, Oprah always asks the right questions.

A little NSFW meme.
Oprah: So, Vision, I have to ask the question that’s on everyone’s mind… does it vibrate?
Vision: *dramatic pause* It does, yes.
Oprah: WOW. Wow. Good for you, Wanda. Good for you. https://t.co/LZJDkEXojy

At one point in the special, Markle revealed the royal family was concerned about what color her son’s skin would be. That remark was turned into an Oprah-WandaVision meme, too.

Vision and White Vision also took some time to chat with the queen of interviewing.

Oprah would be remiss if she didn’t touch on the relationship between Wanda and Agatha Harkness.
