CBS is paying Oprah Winfrey up to $9 million to air her bombshell interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry where they are expected to spill all about their dramatic exit from the Royal family.

The network has forked out between $7 million and $9 million in license fees to Winfrey’s production company Harpro Productions for the rights to the no-holds-barred sit down with the Sussexes, according to a report.

The interview is shaping up to be big business as millions are expected to tune in around the globe to watch the already escalating tensions between Meghan and Harry and Buckingham Palace reach a head.

Trailers teased this week show Meghan accusing the Royal Family of ‘perpetuating falsehoods’ about the couple as she referred to the palace as ‘The Firm’ and blamed her husband’s family for pushing them to speak out.

This comes as Buckingham Palace this week launched a probe into allegations Meghan bullied Kensington Palace staff, drove out two PAs and inflicted ’emotional cruelty’ on aides.

The tell-all interview will be aired first in the US on Sunday night despite protests it should be put on hold while Prince Philip – Harry’s grandfather – recovers in hospital from heart surgery.

Despite the huge license fee for the host, reps for Meghan and Harry said they are not being paid for the special, nor are they receiving a financial donation for a charity of their choice.

However experts say the publicity surrounding the show will help propel the $1 billion brand the couple are on a mission to build in the US.
