Meghan and Harry set for new ‘damage control’ Oprah interview, says insider

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been tipped to do a second interview with Oprah Winfrey by a source close to the Duchess.

The insider claimed that the Sussexes are keen to deploy some "major damage control" after a slew of negative headlines and have already contacted Oprah's team.

Harry and Meghan's first interview with Oprah aired in March last year and sent shockwaves through the Royal Family.

The couple claimed a member of The Firm had raised "concerns and conversations" over what colour Archie's skin would be.

In a different point, Harry said that his father Prince Charles had "stopped taking my calls".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now said to be ready to make more bombshell claims following the release of The Palace Papers, a new book written by former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown, reports the Daily Express.

Ms Brown interviewed a number of insiders and royal contacts for the book which has "really gotten under Meghan’s skin" according to a source.

That source told Heat magazine: "These latest claims have really gotten under Meghan’s skin. She’s told her team that something needs to be done.

"She’s so sick of the negative headlines and she’s desperate to come out fighting with some major damage control.

"Meghan feels as though doing another chat with Oprah is the best way to change the narrative and counter all the negative claims she’s read about herself recently. She’s been in contact with Oprah’s people already."

Specifically, the source claims that one issue Meghan wants to refute is Ms Brown’s account of when the Sussexes visited Australia and the South Pacific in 2018.

Ms Brown, who also wrote the Diana Chronicles in 2006 about the late Princess of Wales, said that Meghan "apparently hated every second of it".

She wrote: "She found the itinerary of engagements 'pointless', a former palace employee told me. She didn’t understand why things were set up in that way.

"Instead of being excited when thousands of people showed up at the Opera House, it was very much like, ‘What’s the purpose? I don’t understand this,’ the ex-staffer said."

Ms Brown added: "The ‘this’ being the representational role of the British monarchy and its traditional agenda, rather than the focus on causes she wanted to spotlight.

"Such engagements are old school, yes, but create classic royal ties that bind."

The Daily Star has contacted the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for comment.
