The news gathered all the speculations that the former royals, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are set to appear in an interview with host Oprah Winfrey. This will be the first TV appearance the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex will make after their exit from the royal family.
But, now, it seems very obvious that Meghan and Harry’s interview with Winfrey will be overshadowed as Queen Elizabeth and Kate Middleton have announced for a televised address on the very same day.
Soon after the annual Commonwealth Day service got cancelled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Westminster Abbey confirmed that there will instead be a televised special with all senior members of the British royal family delivering a pre-recorded message on BBC.
The BBC special will feature the monarch, Prince Charles, Camilla, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Middleton and also Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
Coincidentally or planned but, the royal address will be aired on the same day when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah will be aired. Both of the TV specials will be broadcast on March 7.
As CBS reported, Meghan and Harry’s interview with Winfrey will be "covering everything from stepping into life as a Royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work to how she is handling life under intense public pressure.”
