Watch: Prince Harry opens up about Princess Diana's death in Oprah Winfrey interview

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are going to open up about their decision to step back as senior members of the Royal Family in an interview with US chat show host Oprah Winfrey.

The programme has already attracted attention on both sides of the Atlantic and dramatic preview clips released earlier this week gave a hint of what the trio will be talking about.

The show, called Oprah with Meghan and Harry, was originally billed as a 90-minute programme, but it has been extended to run for two hours.

It is being produced by Winfrey's Harpo network and will be shown on CBS in the US on Sunday 7 March.

The interview will also be broadcast in the UK after ITV won a bidding war to get the rights to the special.

It will be shown on Monday 8 March at 9pm on ITV.

Kevin Lygo, ITV's managing director of media and entertainment, 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."

It's a two hour show, so it won't be finished until 11pm.

The show will also be on the ITV hub for those who want to catch up at a later date.

What will Harry and Meghan talk about with Oprah Winfrey?

The first part of the interview will only feature Meghan talking one-on-one with Winfrey.

The two women are friends and Winfrey has promoted a vegan latte company which Meghan invested in on her social media, but Winfrey has said no area is "off-limits" during the special.

Meghan will talk about her life in the Royal Family, her marriage, motherhood and philanthropic work.

The 39-year-old, who is pregnant with her second child, will also talk about "how she is handling life under intense public pressure".

Then Harry will join the two women for the second portion of the show, where he will talk about their move to the US, and their hopes and dreams for their expanding family.

Harry, 36, is also going to talk about his mother, Princess Diana, as was trailed in a clip shared by CBS ahead of the show on Sunday evening.

In the clip he said: "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 (Diana), going through this process by herself, all those years ago."

Winfrey, 67, has become a friend of the Duchess of Sussex over the last few years, and attended the wedding of Harry and Meghan in May 2018.

She sent her signature present for Archie, their first son, of a set of books labelled with 'Archie's book club'.

And Winfrey is understood to have reached out to Doria Ragland, Meghan's mother, in a time of need.

Winfrey helped support Ragland when her daughter's relationship with the prince was first made public, when she was followed by paparazzi as she tried to work, according to biography Finding Freedom.

Oprah with Meghan and Harry airs in the UK on ITV on 8 March at 9pm.
