“No subject off-limits,” says Oprah. A preview of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey has just been released and teases at the shocking details of royal life.
The two 30 second clips reveal Meghan’s anguish, describing her experience as “almost unsurvivable” whilst Harry admits sadness over his late mother, Diana’s, own hardships as well as his worries over “history repeating itself”.
In the first clip of the tell-all interview, the awarding winning chat show host asks the Duchess of Sussex if she was “silent or silenced?” Winfrey delves further asking “Almost unsurvivable. Sounds like there was a breaking point?”
In the second teaser trailer Harry tells Winfrey: “I’m just really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you, with my wife by my side, because I can’t begin to imagine what it must have been like for her, going through this process by herself, all those years ago,” the ‘her’ of course referring to his mother Princess Diana.
He then went on to say:
“Because it has been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we had each other.”
In January 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan announced that they would be stepping back from their royal duties and would “work to become financially independent.” Their decision to do so was largely influenced by their relationship with the British press. Speaking to The Late Late Show host, James Corden, Harry explained “We all know what the British press can be like, and it was destroying my mental health.
The eagerly anticipated interview with Oprah will air on Sunday 7th March at 8pm Eastern Time on the US network CBS but what about UK viewers? According to i News ITV is set to attain the rights for £1million in the highly contested bidding war involving Sky.
