It is believed the couple will use the interview to start a new chapter in their lives as the 12-month Megxit review is finalised.
The interview special – to be aired on March 7 – has been billed as a prime time special that will see Meghan speak about topics ranging from “stepping into life as a royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work, to how she is handling life under intense public pressure”.
And one source told the Mail the Oprah interview would give the couple the chance to “get whatever it is they want to say off their chests and move on”.
Since quitting the Royal Family, the couple have spoken out about a range of issues like the Black Lives Matter movement.
It comes as….
They have also spoken about the dangers of social media with Meghan blasting it as being like a “drug”.
Since moving to the US they have also launched the Archwell Foundation as well as signing multi-million deals with Netflix and Spotify.
The Netflix deal is expected to see the couple make documentaries, films andkids’ programmes for the platform’s 193million subscribers.
More recently, Harry weighed in over the coronavirus pandemic, saying 2020 had been a universally difficult year.
He said: “Someone said to me right at the start of the pandemic, ‘It’s almost as though Mother Nature has sent us to our rooms for bad behaviour’.”
The Duchess of Sussex this week also won a High Court privacy battle against the Mail on Sunday after it published a letter she sent her estranged father Thomas Markle.
The couple dramatically quit the Royal Family last year, now living in the US as they raise Archie and await the arrival of their second child.
Oprah Winfrey’s best pal Gayle King has previously said nothing would be off-limits in the interview.
Speaking on her CBS show, the chat show host said: “I’m told that nothing is off limits. She can ask anything she wants.”
But a source close to the couple suggested the couple did not want to upset the Queen with the tell-all chat.

CBS said in a statement: “Winfrey will speak with Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, in a wide-ranging interview, covering everything from stepping into life as a Royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work to how she is handling life under intense public pressure.
“Later, the two are joined by Prince Harry as they speak about their move to the US and their future hopes and dreams for their expanding family.”
The primetime special, titled Oprah with Meghan and Harry, will be broadcast on March 7 – with ITV reporting that the deal was signed over the weekend.
In the wake of the announcement, one royal insider has said there is “a great deal of nervousness” at the Palace.
Meanwhile, the Megxit review is expected to see Prince Harry lose his honorary military titles.
Harry’s positions as Captain General of the Royal Marines, Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Honington and Commodore-in-Chief, Small Ships and Diving were taken away when he left the royals, pending the review.
Prince Harry was last seen in his Royal Marines outfit just before quitting the UK, donning the distinguished red uniform for the Festival of Music in March last year.
And Prince William has today reportedly been tipped to take on his younger brother’s Marines role.
