Meghan Markle warning: Duke and Duchess of Sussex told Oprah won’t ‘go soft’ on couple


MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry have been sent a warning ahead of their tell-all interview with their pal Oprah Winfrey, as an expert claims the veteran TV host is unlikely to “go soft” on the pair.

Royal biographer Penny Junor has warned the Sussexes should not expect Oprah to go easy on them as she presses her interviewees for answers.

The couple are friends of the host and last year bought an £11 million mansion in Montecito, California, close to Oprah’s Santa Barbara home.

Ms Junor told Sky News: “Oprah is a real pro.

“She gets very good material, that’s why she’s the top of her field.

“And I cannot think that she will go softly on these two because they are friends.

“Ninety minutes is a long time to be in conversation with someone.”

Oprah, 67, is among the most well-known TV hosts in the United States and has been dubbed the “Queen of All Media”.

Her career in the competitive industry spans more than four decades.

Her talk show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, was the highest-rated TV programme of its kind in history.

She is known for her strong interviewing skills and drawing the truth out of her guests using many tactics.

Her 1993 chat with Michael Jackson was the fourth most-watched event in American TV history as well as the most watched interview ever, with an audience of 36.5 million.OPRAH

Her interview with Harry and Meghan comes as the couple are expecting their second child.

The baby is though to to be due at the end of spring or early summer.

On Friday, Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, announced they would not return to the Royal Family as working members.

The couple released a statement detailing their decision not to return to the fold less than a year after they signed the Megxit deal with the Queen, 94.

Buckingham Palace also released a statement confirming the duke and duchess had decided to keep their distance.

The palace said the couple had given up their royal patronages and Harry had been stripped of his honorary military titles.

The military appointments and royal patronages “will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of the Royal Family.”

A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan said the pair “remain committed” to serving the organisations they were affiliated with, regardless of officials roles.

Harry is due to fly back to the UK in June for the annual Trooping the Colour parade and Prince Philip’s 100th birthday.
