This weekend many eyes will be on Oprah’s anticipated interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as they prepare to open up on their exit from royal life, after stepping down from duties and relocating to the US last year.
The interview, officially titled ‘Oprah with Meghan and Harry’, which has been produced by Oprah’s own production company, has been dubbed ‘intimate and wide-ranging’, with the pair set to discuss topics like parenting, life in the public eye and the couple’s plans for the future.
During the special, which will air on ITV in the UK, Meghan will speak to Oprah without Harry initially, before being joined by her husband.
Speaking ahead of the broadcast, ITV Managing Director Kevin Lygo said: ‘This interview is already a national talking point and ITV is pleased to be able to offer UK audiences the opportunity to see it.’
Since leaving the UK, Harry and Meghan have managed to secure lucrative media deals, including a reported £100million deal with Netflix and an impressive deal with Spotify, worth a reported $25m (£18m) to partner with the pair’s Archewell Audio company and produce podcasts that ‘uplift and entertain’.
Ahead of the televised interview – which will air in the US on Saturday evening, and in the UK on Monday – people can catch up on the couple’s recent foray into broadcast with their podcast under the Archewell banner.
When and where can you listen to Meghan and Harry’s podcast?
Archewell Audio was launched in 2020 and is hosted by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, with one episode already live on Spotify.
The former royals – who stepped down from their senior roles a year ago before moving to the US – released the first episode – a holiday special – of their podcast in December, which had the likes of Sir Elton John and James Corden appear.
The first series from the duke and duchess is expected this year and Spotify announced it will be available to listen to for free with a Spotify account, with users able to tune in via the app or webpage – or via the embed in this article above.
Previously explaining their venture into audio through their Archewell company, the duke and duchess said: ‘What we love about podcasting is that it reminds all of us to take a moment and to really listen, to connect to one another without distraction.
‘With the challenges of 2020, there has never been a more important time to do so, because when we hear each other, and hear each other’s stories, we are reminded of how interconnected we all are.’
Oprah with Meghan and Harry airs Monday, March 9 at 9pm on ITV.
