US broadcaster CBS is set to broadcast Oprah’s interview with Meghan and Harry on Sunday March 7 from 8pm ET, with the “primetime special” to be extended from 90 minutes to two hours.

And in a dramatic sneak preview, Oprah hints at division between Meghan and the Royal Family.

She asks the Duchess of Sussex: “Were you silent, or were you silenced?”

Sitting with Meghan alone, Oprah says: “Almost un-survivable sounds like there was a breaking point.

“Were you silent or were you silenced?”

It comes as…

Prince Harry sits alongside Meghan in the clips, saying he did not want to see “history repeat itself”.

Meanwhile, Oprah adds: “I just want to make it clear to everybody there is no subject that is off limits.”

Holding hands with his Meghan, Harry said: “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 her, going through this process by herself. All those years ago.

“Because it’s been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we had each other.”

He added: “My biggest concern was history repeating itself.”

It’s been reported the Queen was “blindsided” by Harry and Meghan’s announcement of a “tell-all” interview with Oprah.

The royal couple apparently failed to tell Her Majesty their plans before revealing they’ll chat to the American chat show host.

And she only learned of it when US TV network CBS hurriedly issued a statement on Monday – after a producer working for Ms Winfrey mistakenly alerted ITV of the plans, the Mail on Sunday reported.

News of the big interview emerged after the couple announced Meghan’s third pregnancy – and days before Buckingham Palace confirmed the pair will never return as senior royals.

Members of the Royal family usually run potential TV interview opportunities past the Queen in advance.

The couple sat down with Ms Winfrey to record the chat last Tuesday, it’s understood.

Harry and Meghan were forced to reveal the interview ahead of schedule after ITV were tipped off.

The couple are believed to have spoken about marriage, parenthood, life as royals and their charity work during the discussion.

Oprah’s very rare sit-down interview with Prince Harry and Meghan is scheduled to air on CBS on March 7 from 8pm.
