Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's much-anticipated interview with Oprah Winfrey will be broadcast for Kiwi audiences on Three this Tuesday March 9 at 7.30pm.
Discovery NZ has secured to broadcast rights to the unprecedented conversation with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who stepped down as working members of the royal family last year.
In teaser clips for the two-hour-long special released by CBS, Oprah insists that "no topic is off-limits" and at one point tells the couple: "You've said some pretty shocking things here".
Winfrey will have a one-on-one conversation with former Suits star Meghan, in which she'll discuss her marriage, motherhood and coping with the intense public pressure she's been under since she began dating a prince.
Harry can be seen in the trailer for the interview recalling admitting his worst fear was "history repeating itself", in an apparent reference to his mother Princess Diana's untimely death as a result of a car crash while being chased by the paparazzi.
Eagle-eyed commentators were quick to notice Meghan wearing Diana's diamond tennis bracelet during the interview - a move made by the couple so "Harry's mother could be there with him", according to a spokesperson.
The interview comes amid another royal controversy which has seen Meghan accused of bullying several royal aides during her time at Kensington Palace.
The Times reported that a complaint had been made about Meghan's "unacceptable treatment" of three different staff in 2018, with sources claiming one was left "shaking in fear" and others "humiliated".
Meghan has vehemently denied the claims in a statement issued by a spokesperson, who said the Duchess was "saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself".
Meanwhile, Buckingham Palace has responded with a statement of its own, saying the royal family was "clearly very concerned" about the allegations.
"The Royal Household has had a Dignity at Work policy in place for a number of years and does not and will not tolerate bullying or harassment in the workplace," the statement continued, adding that the HR team would be investigating.
CBS Presents Oprah with Meghan and Harry will air in Aotearoa exclusively on Three and online on ThreeNow at 7.30pm Tuesday, March 9.
