Prince Harry’s 60 Minutes Interview on CBS: Trailer, Spoilers
Harry’s interview with Cooper will be his first U.S. television appearance to discuss his memoir Spare. In teasers posted online, Harry once again addresses his departure from the Royal Family — and from the UK — telling Cooper that Buckingham Palace failed to protect him and wife Meghan Markle from the torrent of tabloid attacks back home.
In a preview shared on YouTube, Harry tells Cooper that he believes his private conversations with members of the Royal Family were actually leaked to the press.
Harry and Markle have long claimed that they reached out to officials for help in refuting some of the more baseless rumors about the pair, but they were often met with silence. “There comes a point,” Harry tells Cooper, “where silence is betrayal.”
The interview on 60 Minutes comes weeks after Harry’s Netflix documentary with Markle, titled Harry & Meghan. And it serves as a preview to Harry’s new memoir, Spare, which is set to be released January 10.
The title of the book Spare comes from the phrase “heir and spare,” which many believe reflects Harry’s feelings towards older brother Prince William, who is first in line for King Charles’s throne.
Will Meghan Markle Appear on Prince Harry’s 60 Minutes Special?
Of course, everyone wants to know whether Markle will appear on Harry’s CBS special. The two famously sat down together for an Oprah tell-all in 2021 and again for the Netflix documentary. At this time though, there’s no indication that Markle will appear on Harry’s 60 Minutes episode.
