A lot has changed in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s lives since they announced their full interview with Oprah Winfrey, and they may need to re-rotate parts of the program to incorporate developments.
According to a report in The Mirror, the interview recorded on Tuesday will be revised to reflect the response to the loss of remaining royal patronage. Queen Elizabeth II recently took back the royal roles of Harry and Meghan, suggesting a “life in public service” is incompatible with their new career in America, to which the couple responded with the words “service is universal.”
Since the interview was announced, it has been rightly speculated that the Sussexes will lose their remaining royal roles. It is also alleged that they blinded the Queen about the interview as they did not want to disclose it until their Megxit review was completed, but they hastily released a statement after the monarch learned about it from ITV.

However, for the change in events after last week’s shooting, the TV chat will have to be re-edited. It goes without saying that the duo had spoken in the interview about their financially independent roles within the royal family, which have now “changed significantly” as a result of the chat itself.
“When the Duke and Duchess spoke, it was never intended that their patronage would be taken away. They did not see it coming and spoke because they still had roles to play. Aside from their titles, however, they are not supposed to play a role in royal life now – a point the producers know was not discussed when Winfrey spoke to them, “a US TV insider told the outlet.
The source also insisted that Harry and Meghan hoped to keep their patronage despite giving the “long-range interview”.
“Neither the Sussexes nor the TV team saw the aftermath of their interview that led to it. Harry and Meghan thought they would keep their roles. But things have changed a lot for them since they eagerly sat and poured out their hearts for Winfrey, ”the insider said.
Winfrey reportedly spent two days with the Sussexes filming the 90-minute interview, titled “Oprah with Meghan and Harry,” which will air on CBS on March 7th.
