Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Interview: Oprah Winfrey Asks 1 Dangerous Question
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left the royal family back in March 2020. Since then, they’ve been laying low in California — but the two are about to open up. The couple has been interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, and the interview will air on CBS March 7 at 8 p.m.
In a brief teaser for the two-hour special, it’s revealed that Oprah asks Meghan a question that could potentially open up a dangerous can of worms regarding her relationship with the royal family.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have chosen to do life on their own terms
Back in January 2020, Harry and Meghan decided that they wanted to step back from their royals as senior royals. The two had faced some difficulties after tying the knot in 2018; Meghan was often the subject of tabloid rumors, and it took a toll on the couple’s ability to flourish within the family.
Eventually, Harry and Meghan decided they wanted to leave the family altogether. They attended their last working royal engagement in March 2020. Since then, the two have opted for a more private life in California. They settled into a home in Montecito, California, with their son, Archie. For the most part, the two have remained out of the public eye, though they did recently announce they’re expecting their second child.
Harry and Meghan’s Oprah interview touches on 1 potentially dangerous question
The duke and duchess recently announced that they’ve been interviewed by journalist Oprah Winfrey for a special that will air on March 7 on CBS. Though the exact details of the interview are unknown, it appears that the purpose of the interaction is for Harry and Meghan to tell more of their story since leaving the royal family — including why they parted ways with the British monarchy.
In a teaser for the interview, Oprah appears to ask a dangerous question. She confronts Meghan about her lack of voice in the royal family. “Were you silent, or were you silenced?” Oprah asks, later seemingly referring to Meghan’s trouble within the family as “almost un-survivable.” Meghan’s response isn’t revealed in the teaser, but answering such a question could disrupt the peace between the Sussexes and the rest of the royal family.
It’s unclear what kind of terms Harry and Meghan are on with Harry’s family; there have been rumors that the peace was disrupted long ago, though other sources have said Harry and Meghan still have a close relationship with their relatives.
Prince Harry says he doesn’t want history to ‘repeat itself’
In another brief clip, Harry says his biggest concern is history repeating itself. He’s likely referring to his mother’s relationship with the paparazzi; Harry blames his mother’s death on the media chasing her relentlessly the night of her car crash.
Harry has previously spoken out about his concerns over his wife’s safety. Back when he and Meghan had ventured to southern Africa for a royal tour, the couple opened up to journalist Tom Bradby. Harry revealed that he was concerned that his wife would go through the same thing his mother went through with the paparazzi.
Harry and Meghan will let fans in on even more explosive information once the interview airs the first week of March.
