In a teaser released by CBS, Oprah touches on the subject in a direct question to Meghan, who is seen sitting on an outdoor lounge chair cradling her baby bump. Oprah asks her: “Were you silent or were you silenced?” The American TV hosts told viewers there is “no subject that is off-limits” in a 30-second clip released by the US network ahead of the airing of the interview on March 7.
Oprah also hinted that the Queen’s grandson and his wife may have said things that palace aides will be unhappy about.
Facing the couple on the outdoor interview setting in California, she said: “You’ve said some pretty shocking things here.”
The short clip of the Sussexes’ first post-Megzit interview will have jolted palace aides more than a year after the couple stepped down as senior royals.
Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, will use the 90-minute documentary to air their side of the story a year-and-a-half since they first hinted at tensions behind closed doors.
During their September 2019 interview with ITV while on tour of southern Africa, Harry admitted that his relationship with his brother Prince William was not as strong as it once was.
And Meghan spoke out out the pressure of royal life and how she was finding it difficult behind the scenes.
She said: “I really tried to adopt this British sensibility of a stiff upper lip… but I think that what that does internally is probably really damaging.”
