Gayle King is set to explore Queen Elizabeth’s private life and future following the death of Prince Philip in an upcoming CBS special. The special will feature interviews with notable personalities.


More than two months since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a CBS Special; the network has yet again set its sight on another royal family member ― Queen Elizabeth II.

According to a press release, Gayle King is set to examine the Queen’s life and her future without Prince Philip in an upcoming special titled “The Queen Carries On: A Gayle King Special.”

The special will take a deeper look at Her Majesty’s extraordinary reign, focusing on the “challenges and controversies, romance and heartbreak” she has experienced, especially with the recent death of her husband.

During the one-hour special, which will air on Friday, May 14, King will be joined by former President Barack Obama, Sir Paul McCartney, and Lady Ann Glenconne, a childhood friend and maid of honor to the Queen.


These notable personalities, alongside royal experts and historians, will reflect on the monarch’s 69 years reign, giving insights into the person behind the monarch and talking about their varying relationships with her over the years.

Meghan made her first public appearance since the explosive interview with Oprah at the Vax Live Concert telecast.


While exploring the devastating tragedy of Prince Philip after 73 years of marriage, the special also touches on the damaging claims Harry and Meghan made during their sit-down. An excerpt of the press release read:

“[The Queen is] now 95 and facing one of the most challenging chapters of her reign.”


The breakdown of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage and the eventual death of the People’s Princess will also be explored, with a deep look at how the Queen led the nation in grief at the time.

The announcement of the CBS Special comes two days after the Queen marked her first official engagement since Prince Philip’s passing. On Tuesday, she attended the State Opening of Parliament in Westminster.


Her Majesty, who looked gorgeous in a lavender day dress, was accompanied by her son Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles. The Cornwalls sat yards away from the monarch, flanking her on the left.

According to reports, Prince Charles and Camilla’s presence at the Parliament was a statement to how senior royal members would play significant roles in the absence of the Duke of Edinburgh.

In recent royal news, Meghan made her first public appearance since the explosive interview with Oprah at the Vax Live Concert telecast. The duchess was featured in a pre-recorded segment from her California home wearing a red dress.

According to royal expert Judi James, Meghan

but managed to channel an upright pose similar to that of the Queen. She also used the words “my husband and I” ― a signature quote from Her Majesty.
