The wide-ranging interview sees Winfrey speaking to Duchess Meghan - who is pregnant with her second child, a sibling for 21-month-old Archie - in a "wide-ranging interview" dealing with marriage, motherhood, life as a royal, her philanthropic work and more.
A previous statement from CBS confirming the news of the interview read: "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."
In a previous teaser clip for the interview, Harry - who, along with his wife, stepped back from royal life and moved to America a year ago - revealed he was worried about "history repeating itself".
The 36-year-old prince seemingly referenced his late mother Princess Diana - who died in a Paris car crash in 1997 at the age of 36 - as he discussed how thankful he is to have Meghan, known as Meghan Markle before she married Harry, by his side during some "unbelievably tough" times and admitted he "can't begin to imagine" how difficult things were for his parent, who gave up the Her Royal Highness title after divorcing his father Prince Charles in 1996.
He said: "My biggest concern was history repeating itself.
"For me, I'm just really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you with my wife by my side."
As an image of a young Harry with his mother then appeared on screen, he continued: "Because I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like for her going through this process by herself all those years ago because it has been unbelievably tough for the two of us but at least we had each other."
