What can we expect from the Harry and Meghan interview with Oprah?

Fireworks, that’s what. Harry and Meghan have faced intense media scrutiny over the past five years, receiving brutal treatment from the tabloid press. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have stepped back from their Royal duties, in a bid to avoid the relentless barrage of intrusions into their personal lives.

The pair have been extremely vocal about this sustained harassment, and their relationship with fellow members of the Royal Family is likely to be analysed. There will also be some much-needed positive, and Oprah is expected to find out what the US-based couple plan to do with their futures. It promises to be a spectacular on-screen event…

“Oprah will speak with Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, in a wide-ranging interview covering everything from stepping into life as a Royal, marriage, and motherhood, to how she is handling life under intense public pressure. Later, the two are joined by Prince Harry as they speak about their move to the US and their future hopes and dreams for their family.”
