Missed Meghan and Harry's Oprah interview? How to rewatch the whole thing

Share:

Sunday night's Oprah Winfrey interview of American-born Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, and her husband, Prince Harry, was nothing less than explosive.  

In it, Meghan said she endured "constant" suicidal thoughts and that no one in the palace would help her. She and Harry said a royal family member expressed concern about how dark baby Archie's skin color might be. Harry said his father, Prince Charles, wouldn't take his phone calls for a while, and cut him off from royal money. The two said the palace cut them off from royal protection despite death threats, some based on Meghan being biracial. It was a grim two-hour recitation that sent "American Twitter" raring to fight "British Twitter" after it was over.

How can I watch Oprah's interview with Prince Harry and Meghan?

If you missed the Oprah, Meghan and Harry special, it's not too late. It's available to watch for free on CBS.com as well as on the CBS app, which is available for free on iOS and Android. Don't look for it on CBS' premium streaming service, Paramount Plus, however. A source said the streaming rights for the special belong not to CBS, but to Winfrey's own production company, Harpo, and thus it can't be added to Paramount Plus.

And if you do want to watch, make the time soon. CBS will remove the interview in 30 days.

The interview begins with Winfrey and Meghan chatting, as the veteran talk-show host skillfully gets the duchess to discuss what it's been like in the bubble of royal life. Later on, Harry joins, and Winfrey shows no hesitation in being as blunt with the prince as she was with his wife. Winfrey isn't a self-made billionaire for nothing -- she knows how to sympathetically ask a question and circle back at it if the subject doesn't quite deliver an answer.
