Meghan, Harry To Open Up On Royal Split In Oprah Winfrey Interview
A highly anticipated Oprah Winfrey interview with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan airs on US television later on Sunday, amid what one royal watcher called a "toxic" atmosphere between the couple and the British monarchy.
Not since the late Princess Diana appeared on television to share intimate details of her failed marriage to Harry's father, Prince Charles, has an interview with members of the royal family attracted so much attention.
Having severed their official royal ties, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will explain why they abandoned Britain to move to California and start new lives.
"I'm ready to talk," Meghan, a former American actress, told Winfrey in an excerpt shown on US station CBS on Friday, saying it was "liberating" to be able to give the interview.
Meghan and Harry's detractors say the couple want the glamour of their positions without the dedication it requires or scrutiny it brings.
To their supporters, their treatment shows how an outdated British institution has lashed out against a modern, biracial woman, with undertones of racism.
