Winfrey’s exclusive interview with Meghan and Prince Harry, OPRAH WITH MEGHAN AND HARRY: A CBS PRIMETIME SPECIAL airs on Sunday, March 7 from 8:00 to 10:00 PM, ET/PT on CBS.
OPRAH: So, I just want to say that I called you either February or March 2018 before the wedding asking, uh, would you please give me an interview, and you said I’m sorry it’s not the right time.
OPRAH: And finally, we get to sit down and have this conversation.
MEGHAN: I’m so…Well, I remember that conversation very well. I wasn’t even allowed to have that conversation with you personally, right. There had to be people from the comp (inaudible) sitting there, everything was…
OPRAH: There were other people in the room when I was having that conversation.
MEGHAN: Yeah, even on that call.
OPRAH: You turned me down nicely and said perhaps there will be another time, when there’s the right time. What is right about this time?
MEGHAN: Well, so many things. That we’re on the other side of a lot of…a lot of life experience that’s happened. And also that we have the ability to make our own choices in a way that I couldn’t have said yes to you then. That wasn’t my choice to make. So, as an adult who lived a really independent life to then go into this construct that is…different than I think what people imagine it to be, it’s really liberating to be able to have the right and the privilege in some ways to be able to say yes. I mean…
OPRAH: And to say it for yourself…
MEGHAN: I’m ready to talk. To say it for yourself.
OPRAH: And not to have to consult with anybody at this point. Yes.
MEGHAN: Yeah. To be able to just make a choice on your own. And to be able to speak for yourself.
