Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have discussed their relationship, their experience of being parents, their stepping back from the Royal Family and the effects that relentless press attention have had on them in a new interview with Oprah Winfrey, entitled Meghan and Harry: A Primetime Special.
When will Meghan and Harry’s interview be on in the UK?
The interview will be broadcast in the US on CBS on Sunday March 7th and will air in the UK just 24 hours later on Monday 8th March. According to The Independent, ITV have secured the rights to the interview after winning a bidding war with Sky. They are estimated to have paid £1 million for it.
Meghan and Harry’s Oprah interview
CBS’ statement about the show says:
Winfrey will speak with Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, in a wide-ranging interview, covering everything from stepping into life as a royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work to how she is handling life under intense public pressure.
Harry, who also appeared in an interview with James Corden last week, will join Meghan and Oprah for the last part of the interview, in which they will discuss ‘their move to the United States and their future hopes and dreams for their expanding family.’ The couple recently announced that they are expecting their second child together later this year.
In teaser clips already released by CBS, Harry discusses his fears of ‘history repeating itself,’ and says:
I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like for her [Diana] going through this process by herself all those years ago. Because it has been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we have each other.
