Prince Harry interview – live: Royal to speak with Hoda Kotb about Queen visit, Meghan Markle and more

Prince Harry is expected to reveal new details of his recent surprise visit with the Queen and his life with Meghan Markle in a new interview with American TV networks.

The Duke of Sussex sat down with Hoda Kotb of NBC’s TodayShow while in the Netherlands to attend the Invictus Games, with the full program to be aired on Wednesday evening.

Coming just one year after the Duke’s explosive TV special with Oprah Winfrey alongside his wife Meghan Markle, the interview could cause further turbulence for the royal family.

In their meeting with Oprah, the Sussexes described the racism and bullying they said they had received from others in the royal apparatus and the British press, as well as the Duchess’s suicidal thoughts while pregnant with her son Archie

Follow live updates below as we report the latest news from Prince Harry’s visit and learn more about what his interview has in store.


Harry’s secret visit to see the Queen

It was only the third time the Duke of Sussex had returned to the UK since he and the Duchess stepped back from their roles as senior members of the royal family and relocated to California in March 2020.

“She had plenty of messages for [Invictus] Team UK, which I have already passed on to most of them,” he told the BBC on Monday. “So, it was great to see her. I’m sure she would love to be here if she could.”

According to The Telegraph, both Sussexes have also been invited to appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations later this year.

It suggests that relations are improving between the Sussexes and the rest of the royal family following Queen Elizabeth’s Covid-19 infection in February.

Oprah’s royal interview was the most explosive since Diana

Sitting in the grounds of the couple’s discreet house in Montecito, California, Meghan Markle told Oprah that she had contemplated suicide but been told it “wouldn’t be good for the [royal] institution” if she went to hospital.

She said there had been “several conversations” between herself, Harry, and other members of the royal family about “how dark” their mixed-race baby would be – a topic that left Harry “a bit shocked.”

We don’t know whether this interview will be that explosive. One year on, relations between the Californian and the English Windsors may have cooled enough to make it a more chill affair. Then again, the Sussexes have surprised us all before.
