Earlier this month it was confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will take part in an “intimate” and “wide-ranging” discussion with American TV legend Oprah Winfrey. Meghan and Harry’s interview is understood to have taken place over a week ago.
Royal commentators are concerned that the Sussexes might lift the lid on the Royal Family.
Ms Winfrey’s friend Gayle King said nothing would be off limits in the interview.
She told CBS: “I’m told that nothing is off limits. She can ask anything she wants.”
The majority of the 90-minute special is expected to be a conversation between Ms Winfrey and the Duchess.
Prince Harry will join later in the discussion for a concluding segment aimed to look towards their future, according to reports.
But some royal sources have claimed that the interview will not help repair an alleged rift between Harry and his brother Prince William.
A royal source told the Daily Mail the Oprah interview “won’t help matters”.
They said: “Things are still bad between them, although both want to repair that brotherly bond.

An insider told the Daily Mail: “It’s not just about the money, it’s about the biggest possible UK audience hearing what Meghan has to say.
“Yes, this is primarily designed for the US, but she felt she was silenced for so long in the UK and now she gets to have her say.”
Earlier this month, sources close to the couple told the Evening Standard that Meghan and Harry are determined not to upset the Queen during their interview.
According to the BBC’s royal correspondent Jonny Dymond, Meghan is likely to get an easy ride from her chat with Ms Winfrey.
He said: “Most royal interviews are horrible car crashes.
“Princess Diana garnered an enormous amount of sympathy, but actually did it work out as she thought it would do?
“Arguably not. Prince Charles and Jonathan Dimbleby, Prince Andrew and Emily Maitlis.
“Now, Meghan is going to get an easier ride from Oprah, I don’t think there’s any doubt about it.
“But you have to wonder how this will play.”
