IT is possibly the most dramatic weekend facing the Royal Family since the death of Princess Diana more than 23 years ago.
Exiled ex-royals Meghan and Harry will expect the world to watch when they “speak their truth”.
👑 Read our Meghan and Harry live blog for the latest news...
And we will be hanging on every insult hurled, every secret revealed and every whinge and complaint they make about their former royal life.
Harry and Meghan have left Buckingham Palace’s control and think they have nothing to lose by settling old scores and opening new wounds.
The couple wanted everything done at breakneck speed when working royals and characteristically raced into this interview only hours after signing Megxit.
They shook hands on an interview that will rock the foundations of the monarchy when tempers were high only hours being stripped of their military titles and patronages and winning feeling their High Court privacy case victory against The Mail on Sunday.
It was almost too quick but in truth they had waited three years for this moment. This was a signal to Buckingham Palace they can no longer tell them what to do.
Even the timing of the announcement Meghan was expecting her second baby with Harry on Valentine’s Day was done on their terms and caught Buckingham Palace unprepared.
The 99-year-old Duke was in hospital when Meghan, in her £3,300 Armani dress and Princess Diana bracelet, sat down with Oprah and accused the ‘The Firm’ of spreading lies.
It is astonishing to think that Meghan and Harry settled their scores as Prince Philip recovers from heart surgery.
There is perhaps no greater contrast than seeing Oprah drip-feeding glossy shocking trailers of Harry and Meghan’s revelations while over here Buckingham Palace is issuing almost daily health updates in the Duke’s heart operation.
The trailer accusing the family of “perpetuating falsehoods” came within hours of Buckingham Palace announcing an investigation into allegations Meghan bullied her staff while a working member of the Royal Family.
The timing and choice of that 30-second clip from a whole 120-minute show cannot be a coincidence and was aimed to strike back at the palace.
So senior aides are today on a war-footing. The Sussexes, CBS and Oprah have showed no respect for the Queen by not sharing the show before it is aired.
A lot of muck gets thrown at the Royals but hearing a much-loved grandchild and his wife making cheap shots about his family on US primetime will hurt.
She is alone at Windsor Castle without Philip but flanked by her two new loyal corgis.
It is highly unlikely at 94-years-old The Queen will be up at 1am to see her grandson and his wife who she welcomed into her family talk themselves into the gutter.
But it is an insult that The Queen and her aides are forced to tune in with millions of viewers around the world to hear what grenades the couple want to toss over from sunny California.
Buckingham Palace and the Sussexes team are embroiled in open warfare and the Oprah interview is a bomb that will detonate at 1am tomorrow morning.
The two-hour “tell-all” interview is packaged to be devoured by American audiences as they no longer see their future this side of the pond.
Meghan has already appeared to goad The Queen over her HRH and Duchess of Sussex titles admitting she “risks losing things” in her interview claiming “a lot has been lost already”
Harry and Meghan say they have gained their freedom and voice through Megxit and many may feel sympathetic to a couple. They may not lose their titles. They may feel now they are free they have nothing to lose.
But by hurting and insulting the Queen they may finally lose something more far more important – the respect and interest of the British public.
