What can viewers expect?

The couple has long had an acrimonious relationship with the media and spoken of their struggles with the intense interest.

They will be expected to be highly critical of the actions of the press.

In extracts of the Oprah Winfrey interview released over the last few days, Meghan has criticised the constraints she faced as a working royal, and said it was “liberating” to be able to “say yes” to a request for an interview with the US chat show host.

The duchess has already accused “The Firm” – as the royal family is sometimes known – of “perpetuating falsehoods” about her and Harry in a clip.

The Sunday Times reported royal advisers are “prepared to retaliate with fresh disclosures about the couple’s behaviour if the monarchy is attacked.”

How will the royal family respond and how will they restore their damaged reputation?

The royal family and their aides have some challenging questions to answer about why a suicidal Meghan was not supported and given help, and about the accusations of racism.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have long been vocal campaigners on the issue of mental health so questions remain about their involvement and what their response will be.

The interview is likely to be seen – either by the press or the royals or both – as an attack on the whole family, and how will William react to Meghan singling out Kate?
