An appearance from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be especially fitting this year, as their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey is in the running for the Outstanding Hosted Nonfiction Series or Special category.

“Oprah is planning to attend the night, which could help get them there,” the source told The Sun.

Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special is up against four other series in the category, including My Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman, Stanley Tucci: Searching For Italy, United Shades Of America With W. Kamau Bell and Vice.

Markle, who just recently turned 40, is no stranger to life in Hollywood and the Television Academy. The former actress was known for her role as Rachel Zane on Suits before meeting her husband.
