According to a new report, American chat-show mogul Oprah Winfrey, 67, is apparently “livid” at Prince Harry, 36, after he compromised her exclusive interview by opening up on his and wife Meghan Markle’s decision to leave the Royal Family and move to America on James Corden’s The Late Late Show. Her chat with the couple was set to be their first major television appearance since their departure from the UK, but it remains to be seen whether the airing of the CBS offering will be the exclusive she hoped for.
I think they were desperate to get their story out there
One of the main talking points of the exclusive interview was to be the reason why the couple decided to break away from their royal duties and move to California to start a new life with their son, Archie.
But after Harry told all to fellow Brit, James, in a chat on an open top bus for his talk show, Oprah is reportedly furious that the interview has aired before her sit down chat with the couple.
According to the i Paper’s Late Editor Benjamin Butterworth, the couple wanted to open up about their UK departure as soon as possible.
He said: “I think they were desperate to get their story out there.
“Anyone that saw James Corden and Prince Harry on Friday, first of all, Oprah must have been livid that he’d already given the line of why he quit the Royals to James Corden so she’s not got that as an exclusive.”
Benjamin continued: “So she’s wasted a couple of million there but I just find it utterly extraordinary how a couple that are so rich and have had such a high position in life as the Duke and Duchess can manage to make themselves appear so cheap.”
The two-part Oprah special will be aired by CBS on Sunday, and will be shown in the UK on ITV 24 hours later.
Commenting on the cost of the interview, Benjamin continued: “It really is big money, reportedly ITV spent £1 million on getting the rights to air this Oprah interview in the UK.”
It has been reported that Oprah attended the royal wedding in 2018 having only met the bride once prior to the event.
However, according to The Times, the host reached out to Meghan and they spoke on the phone before the big day.
Oprah has previously spoken out in support of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after it came to light that the pair were planning to break away from the royal family.
Speaking to TMZ, Oprah said: “I support them 1,000 per cent.

“You know why I support them?
“I support them because I believe, when you have thought about this as long as they have – and even in the Queen’s statement [she] says, ‘This has been going on for months,’ these discussions have been going on for months.”
Oprah continued: “Harry said in that charity statement the other day that he had to make the decision to move forward in peace with his new family.”
The couple have come under fire for going ahead with the interview despite Harry’s grandfather Prince Philip, 99, still being in hospital.
Prince Philip was admitted as a “precautionary measure” to the private King Edward VII’s hospital in central London two weeks ago.
The Duke is currently staying in St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London and is being treated for an infection that is not related to coronavirus.
Buckingham Palace have said that he is responding well to treatment and “remains comfortable”.
He is expected to remain there until the end of the week.
