As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are preparing for their sit down with Oprah Winfrey next month, a royal source has confirmed to ET Online that the couple is not required to tell the monarchy. The insider said:

“The Duke and Duchess are no longer working members of the royal family, and therefore any decisions they take with regard to media commitments are matters for them.”

While it is unsure if the Sussexes spoke to the Queen or other senior members of the royal family before agreeing to the interview, the insider notes they are excluded from such procedures given that they are non-working members.

Yesterday, the media mogul announced that she is gearing up for an intimate 90 minutes conversation with the couple titled “Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special,” which will air on March 7.

After the ladies are done chatting about the topics, Prince Harry will join them, and they would discuss their new life in the United States, their expanding family, and their dreams and hopes for the future.

Fans may recall that Oprah was a guest at Harry and Meghan’s wedding and is one of their neighbors in their new Montectico home in California. The 67-year-old also teamed up with Prince Harry for a docuseries on mental health with Apple TV+.

As the interview approaches, Daily Mail reports that the Queen has asked Harry and Meghan to relinquish all their remaining royal patronages due to their acceptance to sit with Oprah and tell it all.

The publication revealed that Harry would be stripped of his remaining three military honorary titles while Meghan will step down as the National Theatre patron. The couple’s affiliation with the Commonwealth is also said to be at risk.

Harry and Meghan’s upcoming interview reportedly mirrors the conversation the late Princess Diana had with the BBC Panorama in 1995. It is also set to bring up the estranged relationship Harry has with his brother Prince William.
