Prince Harry and Meghan being interviewed by Oprah Winfrey


Prince Harry has lit up social media after stating his fear that history was “repeating itself”

This comes after a snippet of the highly anticipated Oprah Winfrey interview with the prince and his wife Meghan Markle, who does not speak in the clip, was circulated across the internet.

“For me, I’m just really relieved and happy to be here 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 going through this process by herself all those years ago because it has been unbelievably tough for the two of us but at least we have each other.”

​This revelation has caused people to take to Twitter, expressing their thoughts of the interview, which is due to be broadcast in full on 7 March.

Not everyone was enamoured with the royal couple deciding to speak to the American broadcast interview legend.

Parallels have been drawn between this interview and the notorious one Diana, Harry’s mother conducted in 1995 with the BBC’s Martin Bashir after she left the royal family following her divorce from Harry’s father Prince Charles.

In 1996, Diana gave up her Royal Highness title, the year before she died in a car crash in Paris. Her treatment from the press and the wider royal family has been back in the news agenda following the depiction of her courtship with her ex-husband in the Netflix seriesThe Crown, which released its fourth season in 2020.

According to CBS, the couple is using the interview to discuss their intentions for the next year. It follows Prince Harry’s appearance on the Late Late Show with James Corden where he stated that he preferred The Crown to some of the news stories that appear in the UK press.
