If you missed watching Meghan and Harry Oprah interview, you're in luck — CBS is rebroadcasting the TV event of the year Friday night. And even if you can't catch the rerun, the interview is still streaming online and we've all all the info you need to find it.
The highly-anticipated two-hour CBS special originally aired March 7 and featured Prince Harry and Meghan Markle discussing their split from the British royal family. And as talk show queen Oprah Winfrey said about it beforehand, "There is no subject that's off limits." The hype turned out to be true, as Meghan and Harry spilled all sorts of royal tea about facing racism and mental health issues.
The interview was broadcast in the UK by ITV Monday and is still generating headlines in Harry's home nation. Weirdly, though, the Meghan & Harry Oprah special wasn't available on-demand on Paramount Plus, though the new streaming service will be airing tonight's rerun.

During the interview, Duchess of Sussex confessed that she had had suicidal thoughts during her pregnancy, saying she found life within the British Royal Family so difficult that at times she "didn't want to be alive anymore." She also revealed that a royal family member relayed "concerns" about what skin color their son, Archie, would have when he was born.
She also said the royal institution played "an active role ... in perpetuating falsehoods about us" and corrected a false headline accusing her of making Kate Middleton cry. Instead, Meghan said it was the opposite — the Duchess of Cambridge induced her to tears in the lead-up to Harry and Meghan's wedding (she later apologized).
According to the BBC, the interview led to "crisis meetings involving senior royals." Queen Elizabeth II issued a statement that said "the whole family was saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan" and that "the issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning." She also said, "While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately."

Who are Meghan Markle and Prince Harry?
Not that these two people really need an introduction, but we'll briefly summarize the situation. Prince Harry is a grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, the younger son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana and the brother of Prince William. In 2018, he married former actress Meghan Markle, best known for starring in the legal drama Suits. A year later, they welcomed their first child, Archie.
In early 2020, Harry and Meghan announced they were stepping back from their roles as senior royals, moving out of England and working to become financially independent. Since then, they've settled in the Los Angeles area, signed deals with Spotify and Netflix and are now expecting a baby.
Their split from the royal family was recently cemented and Prince Harry went on James Corden's late night show to talk about the toll that racist, toxic media coverage took on their mental health. One subject that isn't covered in the pre-taped interview is the Palace's recent decision to open an investigation into claims that Meghan bullied staff members.
