Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be planning a tell-all interview which could provide leverage in their upcoming negotiations with the royal family.
According to multiple UK media outlets, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could be in talks with major US TV networks to organise a candid conversation after they "step back" from their roles as royals.
Tabloid The Sun reports the couple may use the "threat" of speaking out during the imminent family meeting called by the Queen to take place at Sandringham. A source suggested the pair might get more money if they agree not to talk.
"Meghan feels she's been silenced and is no longer prepared to be muted," the source added.
"She and Harry feel the royals have been racist and sexist. Her people are actively exploring opportunities."
Speculation is rife about which TV personality might bag the sought-after chat with the Duke and Duchess. The Sun suggests talks have begun with ABC, NBC and CBS, as well as various celebrity chat shows.
Meanwhile, Page Six reports that Oprah has given the couple's decision her blessing, but that her friend and fellow talk show host Gayle King will score the interview.
Oprah and Harry have already collaborated on a special for Apple TV+ on the topic of mental health, which is set to air later this year.
