Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s forthcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey is one the whole world is going to be paying attention to.

The 90-minute special marks the couple’s first TV appearance since it was confirmed they won’t be returning to their positions as senior royals, and will see Meghan speaking candidly about “marriage, motherhood, and how she handled life under public pressure”.

Initially, the interview will serve as a one-on-one between Meghan and Oprah, after which they’ll be joined by Harry, as the pair reflect on their move to the US, as well as discussing their “future hopes and dreams”.

For those hoping to watch the interview, here’s how it happens…

It’s set to air in America first

Oprah With Meghan And Harry will air on Sunday 7 March, with US broadcaster CBS showing the interview.

The 90-minute show will air after 60 Minutes, which is usually on at 7pm, meaning the interview will be shown at 8pm in the US (which will be the wee small hours here in the UK).

But will the interview then be shown in the UK?

After much speculation, ITV confirmed on 3 March that they had acquired the rights to broadcast Oprah With Meghan And Harry.

It will air less than 24 hours after it debuts in the States, with the two-hour interview in the schedule for Monday 8 March at 9pm on ITV.

Confirming the news in a statement, Kevin Lygo, ITV managing director media & 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 was previously claimed that the BBC was not involved in the bidding process, with The Mirror pointing out that the corporation is showing a rare broadcast from the Queen on the same night as the interview.
