Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey will reportedly see the couple address the "tension" between themselves and the royal family.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will sit down with the famed talk show host in a tell-all to be broadcast by CBS on 7 March – the same day as the queen's Commonwealth Day address.

Shortly after the Oprah interview was announced, Buckingham Palace also shared Harry and Meghan will not return to their roles as working royals and would therefore lose several titles and patronages.

Now, a source shares with E! News that the couple will be "speaking their truth". "There is a lot of tension between them and the royal family," the source says.

"The interview is going to shine a light on what they have been through. Meghan and Harry are relieved they are away from it all."

It is "still a very tense situation" the source shares, saying specifically of the Duke of Sussex and Duke of Cambridge: "Harry and William are on two different paths."

Harry and Meghan "are going to touch on a lot of how mental health came into play and how it affected them," the insider reveals, adding, because they're no longer part of the firm as of this year, they plan on being "very candid" in their interview.
