On Friday, Oprah's close friend Gayle King was chatting to her fellow presenters on CBS This Morning when she said: "Harry and Meghan are talking to Oprah. It's their first major broadcast since giving up their senior royal duties... And I've heard from reliable sources – this is Oprah talking – that it's the best interview she's ever done. So I'm curious. I think that's saying something!"

The documentary will air on CBS on Sunday, with reports that ITV has won the bidding war to broadcast the show the following day on Monday 8 March for UK viewers. The BBC and Sky were also reportedly in the running but are thought to have backed out as ITV was prepared to fork out £1m for the primetime show.

The fellow Brits drank tea and ate scones as they toured LA on a double-decker bus, even stopping at the house that was used in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Harry shared some adorable anecdotes about his little boy, revealing his son's first word and the gift Archie received from his great-grandmother the Queen.

"My son is now over a year and a half, he is hysterical, he's got the most amazing personality, he's already putting two, three words together, he's already singing songs. His first word was 'crocodile,'" Harry told James when asked about fatherhood.

He later added: "Interestingly, my grandmother asked us what Archie wanted for Christmas and Meg said a waffle maker, she sent us a waffle maker for Archie so for breakfast now, Meg makes up a beautiful organic mix, in the waffle maker, flip it, out it comes, he loves it. Archie literally wakes up in the morning and says 'waffle.'"
