Gayle King met with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry right before baby’s arrival

Gayle King scooped all broadcasters by meeting with new parents Meghan Markle and Prince Harry — but it won’t be on camera.

King, who we revealed just signed a new deal with CBS News worth at least $11 million a year, has been touting a special, “Meghan and Harry Plus One,” marking the one-year anniversary of the royal marriage and the May 6 birth of their first child.

King filmed the special just two days before Meghan gave birth to son Archie, we hear.

After CBS was the only non-British network allowed in to capture the unveiling of the royal baby last week, King — who was a guest at Meghan’s starry baby shower in New York in February — went to visit the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at their new home, Frogmore Cottage by Windsor Castle.

However, the meeting was not caught on camera, and sources confirm it was a private event. We’re told that King’s special is planned to air Friday to tie in with the Sussexes’ first anniversary on Sunday.

A source said that the couple has not given interviews or participated in any official capacity for the special.

Reps did not comment.

King, a close friend of Markle and Harry’s, is also riding high on landing that explosive interview with R. Kelly.
