Duchess Meghan, pregnant with her second child, is set to sit down to chat with Oprah Winfrey for an “intimate conversation” in her first major broadcast interview since moving back to the U.S.

CBS announced Monday that the 90 minute-long “Oprah with Meghan and Harry; A CBS Primetime Special” will air on Sunday, March 7, on CBS (8 p.m. EST/PST).

The network said Winfrey spoke with the Duchess of Sussex in “a wide-ranging interview covering everything from stepping into life as a royal, marriage, motherhood (and) philanthropic work, to how she is handling life under intense public pressure,” the network said in a statement.

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,” the statement added.

This interview will be the first time she’s done a major TV network interview since she and Harry gave up their senior royal roles and moved back to her home state of California. The announcement comes a day after Meghan, 39, announced her second pregnancy and four days after she won a major victory in a privacy lawsuit against the British tabloid Mail on Sunday.

Winfrey and the Sussexes are now neighbors in Montecito, California, occupying nearby sprawling estates.

Winfrey was one of multiple celebrity guests who attended the May 2018 wedding of the former actress, Meghan Markle, and Prince Harry, 36, a grandson of Queen Elizabeth II.
