Oprah Interview World viewership: When Oprah Winfrey sat down with British royals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for a tell-all exclusive interview, she wouldn’t have thought it’d be watched by 50 million viewers — and counting. Reportedly, CBS has also scheduled a rerun on Friday night for anyone who might have missed it the first time. Unfortunately in India, this is not available due to broadcast rights.

It also reached an estimate of 49.1 million viewers in 17 countries and rising, the network said. In the United States alone, the interview was seen by 17.8 million people on CBS, the Nielsen company said. In Britain, it is said to have 13.3 million viewers, a huge number for a smaller country.

During her interview, the Duchess of Sussex told Oprah that the Royal family members had concerns about Archie’s skin colour. She said, “They didn’t want him to be a prince or princess, not knowing what the gender would be, which would be different from protocol, and that he wasn’t going to receive security. In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, so we have in tandem the conversation of, ‘you won’t be given security, not gonna be given a title’ and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born,” she claimed. Read more here.

Meanwhile, the Duke opened up about his relationship with grandmother, the Queen. He also alleged that at one point his father, Prince Charles, had stopped taking his calls. “When we were in Canada, I had three conversations with my grandmother and two conversations with my father before he stopped taking my calls. And then he said, ‘can you put this all in writing’,” Harry said. (read their revelations here)
