There's no denying that Oprah Winfrey's interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was a groundbreaking watch.

Covering everything from alleged racism within the royal family to couple's response to media vitriol, the interview was watched on ITV by a whopping 12.4 million people in total.

And after watching the expert way in which Oprah delved into the couple's personal struggles, and discussed issues such as control and mental health, a lot of fans seemed to agree on who they'd like to see in the hot-seat next.

"OPRAH, DO BRITNEY SPEARS NEXT," wrote one person, after watching the royal interview.

"Britney on Oprah, omg it would SHOCK the f*ck*ng world. I hope this happens Britney needs the same platform to tell her story #FreeBritney," said a third.

As a fourth concurred: "Manifesting Oprah interviewing Britney Spears next #FreeBritney".

There has been a renewed interest in Britney Spears' case ever since the New York Times and Hulu documentary, Framing Britney Spears.

The doc shone light on the controversy around the singer's conservatorship as well as the abundant sexism Britney faced in the early aughts.

It comes as Britney has been under her father's conservatorship since 2008, following hospitalisation for her declining mental health.

While the court ruled - when Britney was just 26 - that the conservatorship was supposed to be temporary, Britney is still under her father's control 13 years later. She's now 39, and has been asking repeatedly for her freedom.

In August 2020, the singer said she no longer wanted her father to be in control of her conservatorship, later asking that he be removed as the co-conservator of her estate in November 2020. She even went as far to say that she would no longer be performing while he was in control of her career.

However, in spite of this, Britney lost a legal attempt to remove her father's control over her estate.

The fight for Britney's conservatorship has all been happening against the backdrop of the #FreeBritney movement - where some fans think the pop-star is being controlled against her will.

And recently, fans have been more desperate than ever to prove that Britney needs help, as conversations about her welfare rage on.

There's been a surge in people expressing support for the pop-star since watching the dog, and, looking for clues they believe are hidden on her social media.

The campaign was launched almost a decade ago by fans who are wholeheartedly convinced that the singer herself also wants to be free from the legal binding, utilising social media to bring awareness to the discrepancies surrounding her right to autonomy.

Britney's conservatorship is still ongoing, and we currently don't know how much of this movement is to be believed.

If anybody can get to the bottom of this, it's Oprah.
