The tell all interview has already been recorded over two days in Santa Barbara, where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex live. It is due to be broadcast in the US on Sunday March 7.
A source close to the couple said: “The pair are clearly very close to Oprah and the fact she’s been with them at such an intense time has given her a unique insight into the rift with the royals.
“The drama of last week means that Oprah’s tell-all show will be pure gold.”
Speaking to the insider added: “It’s time to hide behind the sofa for the other royals.”
Oprah is a personal friend of the Sussexes’ and attended their wedding in May 2018.
On Friday it was announced Meghan and Harry have been stripped of their remaining royal patronages as “they will not be returning as working members of the Royal Family”.
The Duke has also lost his honorary military roles including his position as Captain General of the Royal Marines.
In response Meghan and Harry released a controversial statement claiming “service is universal”.
Speaking to The Times an insider said the interview will allow Meghan to recover her voice.
They said: “Having an institutional voice within the royal family wasn’t enough [for Meghan].
“This interview will be the loudest way she’ll get her voice back.
“When they first started dating Meghan felt she had lost her voice.
“She had had a platform as a moderately successful actress, and when she was told to stop using her social media and be careful what she said, I could tell that loss of voice and independence pained her.”
