CBS has released two 30-second excerpts from Oprah With Meghan And Harry: A CBS Primetime Special which is set to air at 8pm EST on Sunday. Winfrey has said there are “no subjects off limits” of her highly-anticipated interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The clips show Winfrey sitting opposite Meghan and Harry on the grounds of their California home in Montecito. In the first clip, Harry said he feared “history repeating itself” in a reference to the death of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. As he spoke of their decision to quit royal life and move to California, he told Winfrey: “I’m just really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you, with my wife by my side, because I can’t begin to imagine what it must have been like for her, going through this process by herself, all those years ago. Because it has been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we had each other.”
In the second excerpt, Harry says he is grateful to have had Meghan’s support throughout his exit from royal life, while also expressing admiration for what his mother had to endure under similar circumstances. Princess Diana was stripped of the Her Royal Highness title at the time of her divorce from the Prince of Wales in August 1996. She died in a car accident in Paris the following year.
The 90-minute CBS special will be the couple’s first sit-down interview together since their BBC engagement interview in November 2017.
