The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will give their first televised interview about why they stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family last year, it was confirmed yesterday. Meghan and Harry’s chat will be broadcast on March 7, just a few weeks from the one year anniversary of their decision to seek financial independence in the US. The latest announcement came just one day after the couple shared the news Meghan was expecting her second child.
Commentator and Brexit campaigner Darren Grimes mocked the pair over the interview, claiming the couple have not been “silent” over the last year.
He wrote on Twitter: “I hear the Sussexes are doing Oprah to ‘break their silence’ on why they left their duties in rainy old Blighty for sunny California.
“When were they EVER silent? Wouldn’t the Jeremy Kyle Show be more appropriate?”
Oprah With Meghan And Harry: A CBS Primetime Special, has been described as an “intimate conversation” by the US television network.
Oprah is known for being a friend of Meghan and even attended her royal wedding in May 2018.
The interview will be staged in two parts, with Meghan first interviewed about “stepping into life as a royal, marriage, motherhood to how she is handling life under intense public pressure”.
Later, they will be joined by Harry, where the couple will then speak about their move to California last year and their future plans.
CBS said in the 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 United States and their future hopes and dreams for their expanding family.”
Meghan and Harry agreed to have a 12-month review of their new arrangement with the Queen, which was scheduled for next month.
It is expected the Queen will review Harry’s honorary military titles after he expressed disappointed at giving them up.
But Mr Grimes has previously called for the pair to have their titles stripped as he claimed they were at risk of “exposing the magic of monarchy” by heading down a reality television route.

He added he did not think the pair were giving up their duty in order to seek more privacy.
This is due to their recent deals to make podcasts with Spotify and £112 million deal with Netflix to make docuseries.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Grimes said: “No objective royal commentator can possibly argue that Harry and Meghan have given up their duties at rainy charity galas and events here in Blighty to pursue a more ‘private life’, moving from the service to their Queen and Country, to instead pander to ‘wokery’ in Hollywood as they weren’t the main event and knew they never would be.
“With a new fly-on-the-wall Netflix reality telly series and a Spotify podcast series, Harry and Meghan risk turning the Windsors into the Kardashians.
“The potential risk for political activists and movements to be offered a platform by the son of the heir to the throne via this Archewell Audio initiative, similar to a channel created by the Obamas, risks exposing the magic of monarchy that sits above politics to protect the integrity of it.
“Sitting above the political fray explains the Royal Family’s popular support across all four constituent parts of our United Kingdom – they are the unifying force of it.
“The pair ought to be stripped of their royal titles before irreparable harm can be inflicted by them, let them enjoy their deals, platforms, exposure and trinkets in California, but the institution of the British monarchy is much too important to be harmed by reality telly, Spotify and fake honours.”
