How to watch the Oprah interview with Prince Harry and Meghan in the UK
The controversial Oprah Winfrey interview with Duke and Duchess of Sussex is due to air in the UK on Monday.
The televised conversation will see Prince Harry and Meghan sit down with the famous talk show host to discuss life after stepping away from their royal titles.
The interview has fuelled tensions within the monarchy – in teaser trailers for the two-hour show, Meghan accused The Firm, as the royal family is sometimes known, of “perpetuating falsehoods” about her and Harry.
She also criticised the constraints she faced as a working royal, and said it was “liberating” to be able to “say yes” to a request for an interview with the US chat show host.
The Sunday Times reported the monarch will not watch the programme and is instead focusing on national issues, while the paper said royal courtiers have branded the interview a “circus.”
The paper also reported that royal advisers are “prepared to retaliate with fresh disclosures about the couple’s behaviour if the monarchy is attacked.”
Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the reports.
When is it on TV and how can I watch it?
‘Oprah With Meghan And Harry: A CBS Primetime Special’ will air in the US on Sunday, March 7 before being broadcast on ITV on Monday, March 8, at 9pm.
Several members of the royal family will appear in their own television special, just hours before Harry and Meghan, on a BBC One programme on Sunday evening.
The Queen, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Countess of Wessex – will appear in the show called ‘A Celebration For Commonwealth Day,’ which is marked on Monday.
