Royals, brace for impact. Two new promotional sneak peeks for Oprah Winfrey’s tell-all interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were released on Sunday, February 28, and in it the celebrity interviewer asks some hard questions — and promises nothing is “off limits.”
In the first teaser, Winfrey questions Meghan: “Were you silent or were you silenced?”
Winfrey adds, “I just want to make it clear to everybody, there is no subject that is off-limits.”
The couple — who stepped back from their royal duties and just announced their official split from the world’s most-famous family — will speak on a variety of topics with Winfrey, who points out that their living situation was “almost unsurvivable.”
“Almost unsurvivable sounds like there was almost a breaking point,” Winfrey says.
“My biggest concern was history repeating itself,” Prince Harry tells the host.
“You’ve said some pretty shocking things here,” Winfrey concludes.
In another teaser, the 36-year-old speaks about his late mother, Princess Diana, and how her life was under a microscope. “I’m 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 for her going through this process by herself all these years ago,” he says. “Because it’s been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we have each other.”
According to the CBS press release for what is set to be a bombshell interview, 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.”
Royal expert Katie Nicholl claimed "the couple really want this to be an interview in which they can sit down and tell their side of the story."
"Up until now we've heard versions of their story through the voices and re-telling of other people," she told Entertainment Tonight. "This is their first opportunity to sit down and talk about the past year in their own words."
It is being reported that Harry’s brother, Prince William is dreading the sit-down chat between Winfrey, Meghan and Prince Harry. The interview is “cause for concern” within the royal family, an insider told Page Six, adding that William and others are getting flashbacks to when Diana’s interview with BBC host Martin Bashir aired in 1995, in which she spoke about Prince Charles’ affair with Camilla Parker Bowles.
The interview is set to air on Sunday, March 7, at 8 p.m. ET.
