CBS will be running on Sunday, March 7th at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time Oprah Winfrey Interview with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle. The advertising teasers promise juicy revelations about the couple’s relationship with the British royal family.

For this reason, CBS is said to charge a premium for 30-second ads that are broadcast during the interview. In addition, rights are being sold to broadcast the interview overseas. The interview is expected to air on Monday March 8th on ITV in the UK. The rights are rumored to have cost $ 1.4 million and some UK media are forecasting ITV will attract high priced Super Bowl-style ads – “£ 100,000 per 30-second slot,” according to Mirror – for broadcasting the interview.

It is believed that Harry and Meghan were not paid for the interview, in accordance with US journalistic practices.

Between their new podcast and their interest in speaking at company events, the two seem to position themselves as thought leaders. Talking to Oprah can help with this. In addition, the continued fascination with the royal family may help them with book stores and sponsorships in the future.

No matter how good the interview is, it is unlikely to deliver the shock of Princess Diana’s interview with the BBC in 1995, in which she revealed the serious problems in her marriage to Prince Charles.
