The most-spoken about interview of the year aired on CBS in the US yesterday.
Meghan Markle, 39, and Prince Harry, 36, sat down with Oprah Winfrey to speak about their time as senior members of the Royal Family – and no topic was off limits.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made several shocking claims about the Royal Family, including alleging that there had been “concerns” over the potential colour of baby Archie’s skin.
The two-hour special is yet to be aired in the UK yet, but will be broadcast on ITV this evening, March 8.
With millions of people around the world set to watch the interview, many have been wondering whether Meghan and Harry are getting paid for the tell-all chat.
Did Meghan and Harry get paid for the Oprah interview?
Meghan and Harry weren’t paid for the interview with Oprah.
Oprah addressed the subject of money at the very start of the interview, saying: “Before we get in to it, I just want to make it clear to everybody that even though we’re neighbours, that there has not been an agreement, you don’t know what I’m going to ask, and there is no subject that’s off-limits and you are not getting paid for this interview."
Full list of rules Meghan Markle had to follow – from no passport to isolation inside
The Duchess of Sussex responded by saying: “All of that is correct.”
The interview will be most lucrative for the TV networks who have paid for it.
CBS reportedly spent around $7million (£5million) on the rights to the interview. They are also said to have charged $325,000 (£235,000) for 30 seconds of advertising during the programme.
That is around double what they would usually charge for advertisements during that time period.
In the UK, ITV paid £1million for the rights to air the interview.
