The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have already recorded their tell-all interview with US TV host Oprah Winfrey – and we expect there were certain topics that were particularly difficult to discuss, especially for Meghan.

Emotions no doubt ran high during the eagerly-anticipated special, which will air on Sunday 7 March on the CBS Television Network.

Meghan and Harry granted Oprah a tell-all interview

One subject that may have proved especially difficult for the couple to discuss was Meghan's devastating miscarriage in July 2020; the Duchess will be speaking about motherhood in the interview and may touch upon the subject with her TV presenter friend.

Meghan revealed in November in a candid open letter in the New York Times that she had lost her second child, writing in part: "I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.

"Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband's hand. I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears. Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we'd heal."
