Harry and Meghan join oprah
Prince Harry and Meghan have recorded a “wide-ranging” and “intimate” interview with Oprah Winfrey in which they will reveal all about their decision to step away from the royal Family. The 90-minute primetime special will be broadcast on CBS on March 7.
The program, called Oprah with Meghan and Harry: a Primetime Special, will begin with a one-to-one chat between the broadcaster and the duchess “covering everything from stepping into life as a royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work to how she is handling life under intense public pressure,” CBS said in a statement.
Later, the pair are joined by the duke as they speak about “their move to the u.s. and their future hopes and dreams for their expanding family.”
The announcement, made this weekend, that the duchess is pregnant with another baby will also impact the duke’s plans to return to the u.k. in June.
Meghan is understood to be around five months’ pregnant, and therefore due to give birth around June, making it unlikely that he could attend either the duke of edinburgh’s 100th birthday celebrations on June 10.
However, the one royal engagement scheduled for this summer in which he is still hoping to take part is the unveiling of a statue of his mother, diana, Princess of Wales, at Kensington Palace on July 1, which would have been her 60th birthday. A source close to the couple insisted he had not yet made any firm travel plans, due to restrictions caused by the pandemic.
