  • "We want to remind you Harry and Meghan are talking to Oprah," King said of the interview. "It's their first major broadcast since giving up their senior royal duties … and I've heard from reliable sources—this is Oprah talking—that it's the best interview she's ever done."

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey (opens in new tab) is going to be a must-see event. That's a "duh" statement, we know, but the more we hear about the sit-down, the more we can't wait to see it ourselves.

The latest tease-y tidbit about the interview comes courtesy of Gayle King (opens in new tab), who shared a little insider secret about the special while discussing Prince Harry's recent double-decker bus interview (opens in new tab) extravaganza with James Cordon during a segment CBS This Morning (opens in new tab)According to King, the interview, which is set to air in March, Oprah herself is calling the special "the best interview she's ever done."

Let's just take a beat to let that sink in: Oprah Winfrey (opens in new tab) says this is the best interview she has ever done. Whoa. 

"We want to remind you Harry and Meghan are talking to Oprah," King said during the segment, per People (opens in new tab). "It's their first major broadcast since giving up their senior royal duties … and I've heard from reliable sources—this is Oprah talking—that it's the best interview she's ever done."

Straight from Oprah definitely qualifies as a "reliable source." King admitted that, like probably everyone hearing that fact, the claim has only made her more interested in seeing the interview for herself. 

"So I'm curious," King added. "I think that's saying something."

Here's how CBS described the upcoming, 90-minute interview special in a statement earlier this month:

"Winfrey will speak with Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, in a wide-ranging interview, covering everything from stepping into life as a Royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work to how she is handling life under intense public pressure. Later, the two are joined by Prince Harry as they speak about their move to the United States and their future hopes and dreams for their expanding family."

Oprah's interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (opens in new tab) is scheduled to air on CBS on Sunday, March 7 at 8 p.m. ET.
