NASHVILLE, TN — For all those in the television audience fascinated by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, CBS (locally WTVF-5) has a special coming their way next month. The network announced this week that Oprah Winfrey would be sitting down with the couple for a wide-ranging interview. Topics are sure to include the news that they are expecting a second child.
“Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special” airs on CBS March 7 at 7 p.m. CST. Winfrey will first speak with Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, about stepping into royal life, marriage, motherhood, her philanthropic work and how she handles life under the public eye. The two will then be joined by Prince Harry to discuss their move to the United States and future goals.
The special is produced by Harpo Productions. Terry Wood and Tara Montgomery will executive produce, along with co-executive producer Brian Piotrowicz. This news follows the Sunday announcement from Markle and Prince Harry that there would be an addition to the family. “We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother,” a spokesperson for the couple confirmed to Variety. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”
The couple welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison, in May 2019. The baby news comes after Markle penned an op-ed for the New York Times in November detailing that she had suffered a miscarriage a few months earlier.
Markle and Prince Harry are now based in Los Angeles after declaring their independence from the Royal Family in March of 2020. The couple reached a major multi-year deal with Netflix in September, which allows them to develop documentaries, feature films, scripted television shows and children’s series. They also recently launched a podcast on Spotify under their Archwell Audio production company, with the goal of building “community through shared experience, narratives and values.”
