Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah Winfrey will be re-edited to include the dramatic changes that have occurred in the couple's lives over the past few days.
Last week the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were stripped of their royal patronages after revealing that they would be doing a tell-all interview with Winfrey, which has already been filmed and is set to air on March 7. Now CBS is hoping to re-shoot parts of the interview to include the latest developments, according to sources.
"When the Duke and Duchess spoke, it was never envisaged they would have their patronages taken away," an insider revealed to the U.K.'s Mirror. "They didn’t see it coming and spoke as they still had roles to play. Now, however, other than their titles, they are to have no role in royal life — a point producers know was not discussed when Winfrey spoke to them."
The source explained that Harry and Meghan had been under the impression that they would retain their roles but things changed since they "eagerly sat for Winfrey and poured their hearts out."
Shortly after revealing the interview, Buckingham Palace announced the couple had permanently quit royal duties. The Queen then ordered Harry and Meghan to relinquish their honorary titles and patronages following the confirmation that they would not be returning as working royals.
Harry will be losing his three military titles and potentially his patronages with the Rugby Football Union, Rugby Football League, and the London Marathon, according to the U.K.'s Daily Mail. Meghan will also have to step down as patron of the National Theatre.
