What will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah cover?

As Oprah promises in the stirring new trailer, "there is no subject that is off limits."
In the clip, Oprah ominously asks a pensive-looking Meghan Markle, who is sitting opposite her, "Were you silent or were you silenced?"
While Meghan doesn't answer in the teaser clip, you can bet it sets the tone for what she does have to say in the interview.
In another tense moment, Oprah responds to something Meghan, who is pregnant with her second child, has said about life in the Royal Family: "Almost unsurvivable sounds like there was a breaking point."
"You've said some pretty shocking things here," Oprah adds.
In the clip, Prince Harry's voice is heard telling Oprah: "My biggest concern was history repeating itself" - a comment most likely in reference to his mother Princess Diana's death at the hands of paparazzi in Paris.
The interview is set to cover the pair's tumultuous journey to stepping back from the royal family back in January 2020 - a feat which left the world in shock shortly before they moved away from the UK and settled in California's Santa Barbara.
The couple also reveal how lucky they feel to have gone through the stresses of royal life with each other by their side.
"I'm just really relieved and happy to be sitting here talking to you with my wife by my side. Because I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like for her [Princess Diana] 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 have each other," Harry explains.
