Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had quite a few bones to pick with regards to the royal family during their candid interview with Oprah Winfrey as no controversial topic was off-limits. From Meghan's mental health struggles with 'The Firm' offering next to no support to Prince Harry revealing that he was financially cut off by his family in the first half/quarter of 2020, the couple bared their heart and soul to Oprah.

According to Deadline, Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special saw strong numbers coming in for CBS as 17.1 million viewers tuned in to know what Meghan and Harry had to say. Moreover the two-hour special pulled in a 2.6 rating among adults 18-49. Interestingly, Meghan and Harry's interview was viewed more than the Emmys and Golden Globes put together. While the Emmys, which took place in September of last year, was viewed by 6.4 million people with a 1.3 rating, last week's Golden Globes was watched by 6.9 million viewers with a 1.5 rating, respectively.

Barring the 20.4 million viewers for the post-Super Bowl debut of Queen Latifah's series The Equalizer, Meghan and Harry's intimate interview with Winfrey has been awarded the largest non-sports audience of the 2020-2021 TV season so far. A point to be noted is that 17.1 million viewers are early numbers and said numbers will likely increase as adjusted data, out-of-home viewing and delayed viewing metrics are unveiled in the coming days.

In comparison, Princes Diana's tell-all interview with Martin Bashir in 1995, where the late mother of Harry and Prince William spoke candidly about her failed marriage to Prince Charles and many more revelations, drew in almost 23 million people, according to BBC.

Megan has shown to be a climmer whaile useing anyone she can and stepping on the face on the one below. . Must have been one huge shock to find out to be Royal isn’t putting your fanciest foot forward. But having to be very demure and old fashion. With everything well planned before hand. This marriage will last only as long as Harry can stand being American and away from his family
