They’re going to empty their bag. On March 7, the first major interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry since their departure from the British royal family will be broadcast on CBS. Almost a year after the Megxit, and their recent announcement to leave the Windsors for good in order to devote themselves entirely to their personal projects, the couple have promised to indulge themselves more than ever in Oprah Winfrey. And if they will speak about the integration of the Duchess within the monarchy, of her second pregnancy but also of the media pressure which has long weighed on them, they also intend to express themselves on the tense links they maintain with the Royal family.
Thus, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will speak very openly about the “tensions” with Elizabeth II and her entourage, determined to “speak their truth”, reports a source to ENews. “There is a lot of tension between them and the Royal Family. And it’s an always tense situation. The interview will shed light on what they’ve been through. Meghan and Harry are relieved to be away from it all,” explained the informant, who also specified that the interview will be “very frank” because they have been “officially released” from their royal duties.

Indeed on February 19, the Sussex couple officially announced to Elizabeth II that they were definitely leaving their royal duties, after she was very firm vis-à-vis their intention to play on two fronts. A decision frowned upon by the British who decided for the most part to boycott the interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who also drew the wrath of Prince William. An interview which was also modified by the couple after their departure, and this because they “spoke as if they still had roles to play” within the monarchy.
