Meghan Markle’s been planning interview for years! Meghan Markle has been planning her upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey for almost two years, sources tell DailyMail.com.
The Duchess of Sussex originally tried to arrange a televised talk with friend and CBS anchor Gayle King after her son Archie’s birth in May 2019 – but was overruled by the Royal Family’s public relations machine, the sources claimed.
TV insiders say King and Winfrey have been in talks over a sit-down with the Sussexes ever since, eventually leading to the 90-minute interview set to air on CBS March 7.
In 2019 Meghan was hoping to do a ‘short interview’ about her time adjusting to Royal life and becoming a mother.
But public relations officials at Kensington Palace, who at the time were trying to tamp down rumors of tensions between the Sussexes and senior royals, quickly put a stop to the plans fearing ‘it would alienate the UK press’, a source close to the controversy said.
