First peek at Oprah’s interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, slated to debut on CBS in a week.
Gayle King, Oprah’s longtime closest friend and CBS reporter, has remarked that Oprah considers this “the best interview she has ever done” in her first joint interview with the couple since they announced their engagement in 2017.
The trio can be seen sitting in the expansive backyard of Prince Harry and Markle’s Montecito, California home in the video. Oprah says to Markle, “it sounds like there was a breaking point,” perhaps referring to the family’s decision to move away from the royal family and settle in Los Angeles, and tears well up in Markle’s eyes.
Even though Markle isn’t heard in the brief film, Prince Harry mentions the death of his mother, adding, “My biggest concern was history repeating itself.”

In an interview with Oprah, he says, “For me, I’m just extremely glad that I’m sitting here talking to you with my wife at my side. When Princess Diana went through this process all those years ago, I can’t begin to comprehend what it must have been like for her. The two of us have had it rough, but at least we have each other.
In order to cover all of the discourse, the planned 90-minute time frame has been pushed up to two hours.
First, Markle and Winfrey will talk about “anything from going into life as a Royal, marriage, motherhood, humanitarian work to how she is handling life under enormous public criticism,” according to the interview’s description. Afterwards, Prince Harry will join in a discussion on the couple’s “growing family” in the United States and their “hopes and dreams.”
Since they were first introduced to Winfrey in 2017, the Duke and Duchess have maintained close ties with her. Prince Harry and the Duchess of Cambridge’s new neighbours are talk show star Oprah Winfrey and actress Meghan Markle, who also live in Montecito.
