Prince William has been kept in the dark over Harry and Meghan’s explosive Oprah Winfrey interview as he has not spoken to his brother for ‘some time’, it emerged last night.
There is mounting concern at what the Duchess of Sussex has revealed to the US chat-show host – who was reportedly told ‘nothing was off-limits’ – as the couple have not informed the Royal Family of the interview’s contents.
Winfrey and her production team are keeping a tight lid on Meghan’s revelations, with Harry appearing as the support act, after they filmed the couple at their £11 million home in California ten days ago.
The BBC and ITV are understood to still be interested, along with the Discovery channel, although BBC sources said it would not be ‘pulling out its chequebook’. Harry and Meghan are pictured in 2019
A Royal source said: ‘Harry and William have not spoken for some time, and Meghan speaking about their relationship or relationships with the Royal Family to Oprah will not help matters. Things are still bad between them, although both want to repair that brotherly bond.
‘William does not know what she has told Oprah, none of the Royal Family do. They will find out at the same time as everyone else, although I doubt they’ll watch it.’
American channel CBS will broadcast the two-hour Oprah ‘primetime special’ next Sunday, and a bidding war for international rights is still ongoing, but it is still to be decided which UK broadcaster will screen the interview.

An insider said: ‘It’s not just about the money, it’s about the biggest possible UK audience hearing what Meghan has to say.
‘Yes, this is primarily designed for the US, but she felt she was silenced for so long in the UK and now she gets to have her say.’
Harry and Meghan, 39, who is expecting their second child, have not been paid for the interview, although it is not known whether they will receive a fee for the international rights or supplemental pictures or footage used within the two-hour programme.
Royal biographer Hugo Vickers said: ‘I imagine the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will just have one long whinge to Oprah Winfrey. It’s all about their self-promotion.’
