Oprah’s ‘furious as Prince Harry upstages her’ with James Corden interview

Oprah Winfrey is set to take the world by storm on Sunday night when her unprecedented interview with Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, airs in America.

The chat is set to bare everything about Harry and Meghan's life behind closed doors at Kensington Palace before they controversially stepped down as senior working members of The Royal Family.

However, all is not happy in Hollywood, with some believing that Harry, 36, has disrespected "America's Queen" when he agreed to be quizzed by James Corden.

Harry appeared on The Late Late Show and revealed his true feelings about his decision to walk away from Royal life but insisted he wouldn't be walking away from his duty.

But weeks before filming with James, it emerged that he and wife Meghan, 39, had agreed to a sit-down interview with chat show queen, Oprah.

Now, royal commentator Tina Brown has spoken about the former soldier's decision to participate in the "larky bus trip stunt".

Writing in The Spectator, Brown said: "Harry's larky bus trip stunt with James Corden once again dissed the Queen — not his grandma for a change, but America's Queen, Oprah Winfrey."

She went on to say: "Who gives an exclusive heart-to-heart to Oprah, then goes off before it's aired and does a knockabout with Corden when Her Media Majesty's much-touted scoop is still in the can?

"No doubt it was supposed to be 'just fun', but Corden was sly enough to slip in news-making questions that rained on Oprah's parade."

Tina continued, suggesting that while Harry and former actress Meghan hope to be known as celebrities, they must abide by the "rules of the game in Hollywood" similar to strict rules that they would be following, had they not stepped down as working members of The Firm.

Her comments come just a day after CBS dropped an explosive trailer for Harry and Meghan's chat with Oprah, where the Duchess claimed she shouldn't be "just silent" following her resignation.

Oprah, asked mum-of-one Meghan: "How do feel about the palace hearing you speak your truth today?"

Responding to Winfrey, Meghan says: "I don't know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.

"And if that comes with risks of losing things, I mean, there's a lot that's been lost already."

The bombshell clip was dropped just hours after Buckingham Palace announced that they would be investigating claims that Meghan had "bullied" members of The Royal Household staff.

Oprah's chat with the Duke and Duchess will air in the UK on Monday after ITV won a bidding war by coughing up £1 million for the rights to air the two-hour interview.

Oprah with Meghan and Harry airs at 9pm on ITV, Monday, March 8.
