The first look at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey aired.
On Sunday, for 60 minutes, a teaser of the seat of the trio, Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special, was previewed on CBS.
"I just want to make it clear to everyone that there is no subject that is forbidden," said Winfrey in the clip, who later said to Meghan, "Were you silent or were you silenced?" and "Almost insurmountable sounds like there's a break."
"My biggest concern was that history would repeat itself," said Harry, who is expecting his second child with Meghan.
At the end of the preview, Winfrey, who is also one of Meghan and Harry's neighbors in their Montecito neighborhood, California, said to the couple, "You said some pretty shocking things here."
As seen in the preview, Meghan and Harry will have one-on-one interviews with Winfrey as well as sitting together.

In a second preview, which also aired during the 60-minute broadcast, Harry spoke about his late mother, Princess Diana.
"You know, for me I'm just very relieved and happy to sit here and talk to my wife by my side because I can't imagine what it must have been like for her to go through this process all those years ago alone, "he told Winfrey of the public scrutiny Diana was dealing with.
"Because it was incredibly difficult for both of us, but at least we did," Harry said when Meghan agreed.

Winfrey, who attended the couple's wedding at Windsor Castle in May 2018, will be having an "intimate chat" with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for a 90-minute prime time special, according to CBS.
"Winfrey will speak with Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, in a comprehensive interview that will cover everything from entering into life as a king, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work, to dealing with life under heavy public pressure," the network said in a statement. "They are later joined by Prince Harry as they discuss their move to the United States and their future hopes and dreams for their growing family."

The March 7 interview will air weeks after Buckingham Palace confirmed that Meghan and Harry will not officially return to their royal roles. The announcement came a few weeks before the 12-month review period.
Meghan and Harry will no longer retain their patronage (their royal stakes in numerous UK charities) and Harry will lose his honorary military appointments which will subsequently be redistributed "among the working members of the royal family."
Although Meghan and Harry no longer use their coveted His / Her Royal Highness titles, they will keep them, along with their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles. "While everyone is saddened by their decision, the Duke and Duchess remain very beloved family members," said Buckingham Palace's announcement.

Winfrey's close friend Gayle King teased the interview on Friday.
"We'd like to remind you that Harry and Meghan are speaking to Oprah," King said on CBS this morning. "It's her first major show since she renounced her royal duties ... and I've heard from reliable sources - this is Oprah - that it's the best interview she's ever done."
The co-host added, "So I'm curious. I think that says something."
Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS primetime special will air on March 7th.
