What do we know so far about Meghan and Harry’s Oprah interview?

In the lead-up to Sunday’s viewing, CBS shared previews from the two-hour special.

In a clip released on Thursday, Meghan was heard speaking for the first time during the interview.

In the 30-second clip, Oprah is seen asking the Duchess: “How do you feel about the Palace hearing you speak your truth today?”

She replies: “I don’t know how they could expect that, after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.

“And, if that comes with risk of losing things, I mean, I … there is a lot that has been lost already.”

The video was released early on Thursday morning – just hours after Buckingham Palace confirmed it was launching an investigation into claims that Meghan had bullied former royal staff members.

Harry and Meghan stepped back from royal duties in March 2020

In earlier clips shared by CBS, Oprah questioned Meghan whether she was “silent or silenced”, and later asked the Duchess: “Almost unsurvivable. Sounds like there was a breaking point?”

The video then cut to Harry, who remarked: “My biggest fear was history repeating itself.”

At the end of the first preview, Oprah, who is also one of Meghan and Harry’s neighbours in their Montecito neighbourhood in California, told the couple: “You’ve said some pretty shocking things here.”

In the second clip, the Prince said he is grateful to have had Meghan’s support during his exit from royal life, while also drawing comparisons with his late mother, Princess Diana.

He tells Oprah: “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.

“Because it has been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we had each other.”
