Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Could Do a Tell-All Interview With Oprah, Source Claims
When Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex first announced Megxit in January 2020, they could not have anticipated that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic would bring the world to a screeching halt. As the Sussexes made their final rounds in the U.K. in early March 2020 completing their last royal engagements, they had no idea they would be spending the next couple weeks quarantining and social distancing in a Hollywood compound.
Though the pair had plans to shutter Sussex Royal and announce their new Archewell Foundation, their new life outside of the British royal family has officially been put on hold. Since the duo certainly need to define who they are outside of The Firm, we’re certain that all of this uncertainty is making this uneasy.
Still, whenever life does return back to normal, a royal source says that we may expect to see the Sussexes giving a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will have to work to remain relevant
Though they are two of the most talked-about people on the planet, that can all change in an instance. Certainly, Megxit won the Sussexes many adversaries, and their move to LA has certainly left many people scratching their heads. In order to maximize their worth as public figures while garnering the best deals for a financially independent life, the pair must remain relevant while they can.
“If they want to achieve all the things they want to achieve, and I will come to that shortly, they need to capitalize on their current high profile,” royal expert Chris Shipp explained to ITV News. “Right now, it couldn’t be any higher. Here is an American woman, who in the space of less than two years, joined the Royal Family and then decided she wanted to leave it. That creates a huge amount of interest in this individual. Meghan could decide to tell all, to write a book, to do a big interview.”
In fact, one royal source believes that they will only be on the A-list for a short time. “The couple’s future isn’t certain,” The Atlantic’s Caitlin Flanagan explained. “They are hugely appealing and glamorous. Everyone in Hollywood is eager to host them. The first few years of this plan are going to be heady. But — as Harry has often said — as soon as William’s three children become old enough to emerge as individual figures, the klieg lights will immediately turn to them. He is in a rush to make his mark and seems to treat life as a race, too.”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle don’t want to do anything to embarrass the British royal family
Though the Sussexes have seemingly had some tensions with the royal family, there is still respect there. The pair have made it clear that they don’t want to embarrass the royals in any way. The Sussexes have stated that they are determined to “honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages.”
Additionally, Prince Harry refuses to make fun of his family. “Harry has instructed his and Meghan’s team to nix anything that in any way could be negative toward the royals,” a source explained to Daily Mail. “Essentially anything that is negative to the Queen, Prince Charles, his brother or the throne is off-limits.”
The Sussexes could do a tell-all interview with Oprah
Still, considering the unique position that they’re in, the Sussexes could do a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, a trusted friend of theirs. Page Six is reporting that the couple has been offered $1 million for a tell-all interview.
“Sources close to the Duchess revealed Oprah Winfrey is a favorite to quiz Meghan on her bombshell exit with Harry from ‘the Firm,'” Page Six wrote. “When [Meghan] was part of the Royal Family, it would have been unthinkable for her to do a solo interview with anyone about her life and how being a princess has changed her world. But now she’s very much her own boss and it has put her under pressure feeling that the public have lost their ‘love’ for her and Harry after they took the big step of going on their own.”
Somehow, we doubt this will go over well.
