Harry and Meghan do first TV interview after their farewell to the royal family with Oprah Winfrey
Hot off the heels of the announcement of the birth of their second child comes another bombshell from the Sussexes: they will grant the powerful Oprah Winfrey a "very intimate" interview in which they will talk about everything, including “Megxit”.
The eyes of the world are increasingly focused on Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle.
As if news that the two will be parents again wasn’t enough of a surprise, now comes more explosive news: the Sussexes will grant their friend Oprah Winfrey the first television interview after their farewell to the royal family.
The special, titled Oprah with Meghan and Harry
, will be broadcast in prime time, March 7, on CBS.
And as announced in a statement by the American broadcaster, it will be a "wide-ranging"chat with the Sussex royals.
Oprah will first talk to Meghan about her entry to the royal court, marriage, motherhood, her philanthropic work and how she handles the pressures of a life in the spotlight.
The two ladies will then be joined by Prince Harry, to discuss Megxit, moving to the U.S. and the couple's future goals.
The choice of interviewer is not causal.
Oprah, in addition to being one of the most powerful women in America, is a longtime friend of the Sussexes, so much so that she attended Harry and Meghan's royal wedding in May 2018 at Windsor Castle.
And since the dukes live in Montecito, California, she's also a neighbor of theirs.
The host is also collaborating with Prince Harry on a mental health docuseries for Apple TV+.
Elizabeth II's reaction to the news that her nephew and his wife are ready to spill all their private business on TV is unknown.
Although it is safe to assume that Her Majesty - used to washing the (royal) dirty laundry in the family - is not jumping for joy. A reaction has come, instead, from under the eyes of a sarcastic part of the British press.
Meghan has just won the legal battle against the Daily Mail
and Mail on Sunday
, which she sued for invading her privacy by publishing excerpts of the private letter sent to her father Thomas in August 2018.
It’s only logical that the two newspapers, now, can not help but remark how much the pre-announced and “such an intimate interview" corresponds precisely with the protection of privacy so dear to the Dukes of Sussex.
