Meghan Markle Oprah Interview: Duchess Claims Royal Family Are 'Perpetuating Falsehoods' About Her And Prince Harry

A new trailer has been released ahead of the upcoming Oprah Winfrey interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle - and we can expect the two hour candid discussion to be explosive.

The 30 second clip sees the legendary chat show host, 67, ask Meghan, 39, what the palace will think about hearing her "speak her truth" in the candid interview.

"I don't know how they could expect, after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that the firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us," Meghan replies.

"If that comes with risk of losing things...there's a lot that's been lost already."

The new footage comes after The Times newspaper claimed that the former Suits actress was accused of "emotional cruelty" and alleged that she faced a bullying complaint from one of her closest advisers at Kensington Palace.

The complaint reportedly suggested Meghan "drove two personal assistants out of the household and was ­undermining the confidence of a third staff member."

The Sussexes have since vehemently denied the story, responding in a statement that they are victims of a "calculated smear campaign based on misleading and harmful misinformation".

Meghan and Harry's interview with Oprah will be airing on CBS in America on Sunday night, with ITV broadcasting the no-holds-barred conversation the following evening.

The Duchess of Sussex will speak to Oprah alone before being joined by Harry, 36, to discuss their move to the States since stepping away from their royal duties.

A previous teaser saw Meghan appear to call royal life "unsurvivable" - while Harry says he feared "history repeating itself" in an apparent nod to his late mother Diana.

"You know, for me, 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 [Diana] going through this process by herself all those years ago," he said.

"It has been unbelievably tough for the two of us but at least we had each other."

Oprah with Meghan and Harry will be broadcast Monday 8th March at 9pm on ITV.
