The Queen and Buckingham Palace "do not have an advance copy" of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah, the pit's been claimed.

The Duchess of Sussex sat down with American host Oprah in a 'tell-all' interview set to be aired on Sunday in the US, with the Duke joining her later on in the chat.

Royal aides told The Mirror that "everyone will watch it at the same time," and that the Queen hasn't seen any extra footage before it airs this weekend.

The bombshell interview is set to air on ITV at 9pm on Monday after the broadcaster reportedly won a bidding war.

Sources also claim, the Queen, Princes Charles and Prince William have all agreed they will "reserve judgement until they have seen the footage.

Teasers for the CBS primetime special include dramatic cut scenes and prompting questions.

Meghan also speaks of her relief about no longer being constrained by The Firm.

Oprah called the former Suits star to ask for an interview in early 2018, but Meghan told her it 'wasn't the right time'.

The host brings this up in the trailer, and the Duchess tells her that there were people from the Palace communications team sitting in the room with her while they spoke on the phone.

Oprah says: “There were other people in the room when I was having that conversation?”

“Yeah, even on that call,” the former actress responds.

Oprah, 67, then gushes: “You turned me down nicely and said perhaps there will be another time when there’s the right time. What is right about this time?”

Meghan says: “Well, so many things that we’re on the other side of a lot of… a lot of life experience that has happened.

“And also that we have the ability to make our own choices in a way that I couldn’t have said ‘yes’ to you then. That wasn’t my choice to make.

“So, as an adult who lived a really independent life to then go into this construct that is… different than I think what people imagine it to be, it’s really ­liberating to be able to have the right and the ­privilege in some ways to be able to say ‘yes’.”

The Queen, 94, has to wait until Monday to watch the interview with the rest of the UK as CBS executives have not offered a preview tape to eh royal household reportedly.

CBS has sold the show to 68 countries across the world, with ITV paying around £1million for the rights in Britain.
