Archewell has never confirmed the reality series, but camera crews were pictured with the pair in September 2021 when they attended a series of events as well as the Global Citizen Live event.

The two were pictured earlier on Saturday turning into Oprah Winfrey's 70-acre property accompanied by a woman believed to be the pair's friend, actress Janina Gavankar.

The trio are said to have spent an hour at Oprah's estate, having made the five-minute journey from their own home in Montecito in a convoy of cars, including a Range Rover carrying personal security.

In pictures obtained by Mail Online, Harry drove the lead car, with Meghan sat in the backseat, chatting to both her husband and friend in the front.

The visit has sparked reports that the couple are preparing for another interview with TV icon Oprah.

There were a number of bombshell moments – from Meghan claiming that Kate Middleton made her cry before her wedding to Harry, to alleged concerns from a member of the royal family about son Archie's skin color.
