It's just the latest high profile move for the Sussexes after they quit the Royal Family – signing a massive deal with Netflix and Spotify – while the couple this week announced they were expecting their second child together.
The interview, titled Oprah with Meghan and Harry, will air on CBS on March 7 – but Brits have been unimpressed with news of the show.
According to a YouGov survey, 46% of surveyed Brits said it was inappropriate for the couple to give the interview to discuss their experiences with the Royal Family.
Those in the 50 to 65 age bracket and 65+ bracket were most likely to say they believed the interview was inappropriate.
It comes as…
- Meghan Markle will record her tell-all interview this week, it was reported
- Oprah's interview was reportedly in the works for three years
- Royal sources have claimed the interview will signify no way back into official duties for the pair
- The couple could lose their royal patronages after the interview – with reports the news of the interview has made the palace nervous
- News of the interview came a day after the couple announced Meghan was pregnant with their second child
Another 29% said it was appropriate, with those aged 18 to 24 most likely to say it was OK.
Meanwhile, 25% of those surveyed said they "don't know".
It has been reported that the interview is yet to take place, with ITV claiming the sitdown chat could be recorded this week.
CBS said in a statement: "Winfrey will speak with Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, in a wide-ranging interview, covering everything from stepping into life as a Royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work 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 expanding family."
In the wake of the announcement, one royal insider has said there is "a great deal of nervousness" at the Palace.
One royal source told the Mirror: "One only has to look at the previous instalments of the tell-all interview to know these things never end up with a wholly positive experience for any party.
"Everyone will be watching with intense interest."
It could mean Meghan and Harry now have "no way back to official royal duties", royal sources claim.
The couple are set to possibly lose all their royal patronages as it is believed the Queen will ask them give up their links with organisations passed down through the Royal Family, reports the Daily Mail.
Oprah, who lives close to the Sussexes, is expected to be a considerate interviewer whose questions will not take the form of a cross examination.
The Duchess’s decision to open up publicly came after a 'three-year courtship by the chatshow host,' The Times reported.
Oprah, 67, came into Meghan’s life in early 2018, having reportedly got in touch through the US TV network, CBS.
She even attended the Royal Wedding in 2018, among other famous faces including Elton John and the Clooneys.
