RTÉ 2 wins rights to Harry and Meghan's Oprah interview

Clear your schedules, lads.

RTÉ 2 has won the rights to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's tell-all interview with Oprah.

The CBS chat where, according to Oprah, "nothing is off limits," will be airing in the States on Sunday night, and thankfully, us Irish won't need to wait that much longer to watch it.

RTÉ's Nuala Carey announced the news today, sharing a photo of the couple during the eagerly anticipated interview, which will air in Ireland on Monday night.

"RTÉ 2 used to show 'Suits', so its fitting Meghan Markle is back on the channel telling all to Oprah," she said today. "Watch this must see interview next Monday at 9.30pm."

Elsewhere, ITV managed to win the rights to the interview in the UK following a bidding war that reportedly cost the network £1 million.

We're not entirely sure how much RTÉ paid for the prime time special, but seeing as it's bound to be one of the most watched programmes of the year, it's safe to say it's probably worth it.

A new teaser for the interview featuring Meghan was released today, in which the Duchess said that the royal family "perpetuated falsehoods" about herself and Harry. 

In this clip, Oprah asks Meghan how she feels about the palace hearing her speak "her truth" today.

Meghan replies: “I don’t know how they could expect that, after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that the firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.

"If that comes with risk of losing things, I mean there is a lot that has been lost already.”

This interview comes just days after Meghan was accused of bullying by a former staff member. The Duchess, who is currently pregnant with her second child, has since said she is "saddened" by the claims. 

Harry and Meghan's Oprah interview will air at 9.30pm on Monday, March 15, on RTÉ 2.
