We have our first preview of Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah!
In the (far too short!) 30-second clip, Oprah asks Meghan “Were you silent, or were you silenced?”
Below a clip from CBS Twitter —
The clip goes on to say that no subject is off limits, and Oprah says their former life was “almost un-survivable” before showing Harry, holding hands with Meghan, saying “my biggest concern was history repeating itself,” presumably talking about his mother Diana’s 1997 death.
The full interview will air next Sunday, March 7 at 8 p.m. Eastern and, according to CBS, will feature Oprah speaking one-on-one with Meghan, and then Harry joining the conversation, expected to cover everything from their marriage and son Archie to life in L.A. and their philanthropic work. Stay tuned!
Now a look at what Meghan wore for the interview.

UPDATE 3/2: The Duchess wore a dress from Giorgio Armani – the Long triple silk georgette dress,
$ 4,700. The dress is also available here and pre-order here.
UPDATE 3/1: It turns out the Armani dress, which features an embroidered lotus flower on the right-hand side, has a special meaning.
A Town & Country’s article pointed out that the lotus flower is associated with rebirth and spiritual enlightenment. Their piece highlighted the resilience of the flower and its ability to flourish despite seemingly challenging conditions. More from Town & Country below.
“With its roots latched in mud, it submerges every night into river water and miraculously re-blooms the next morning, sparklingly clean. In many cultures, this process associates the flower with rebirth and spiritual enlightenment.” The piece continues: “With such refusal to accept defeat, it’s almost impossible not to associate this flower with unwavering faith. Although cultures have largely dubbed the lotus as a spiritual figurehead, it is most emblematic of the faith within ourselves.”
EDIT: Meghan’s shoes appear to be the Aquazzura Purist Pump in the 105 mm heel, $695. The shoes are also available on FarFetch in the dark blue, $626, here. We did not see the Purist 105 mm heel pumps in black on the brand’s site, we did however find them in the 85 mm heel, $572 here and also on the brand’s site, $695 here. Apologies for any confusion. We’re thinking Meghan wore the higher heel, 105 mm, in the Purist style.
Thanks to Meghan’s Mirror for the ID information.
Her necklace is a piece we’ve seen before from Pippa Small, the Aquamarine Colette Necklace ($1680). Meghan first wore the necklace while in Tonga for their 2018 Tour.
Meghan is wearing her Birks Bee Chic Blue Topaz Sterling Silver earrings.
Meghan wore the earrings in July 2018 for the Sentebale Polo Cup.
It appears that Meghan may be wearing a diamond tennis bracelet which is believed to have belonged to Princess Diana. We first saw her wear the bracelet in Tonga, October 2018, for the formal dinner reception.

She also wore her Cartier ‘Love’ bracelet and one other bracelet that remains unidentified.
Thanks to Laura Ashworth for spotting the bracelets.
UPDATE 3/16: We have an update on the third bracelet Meghan wore during the interview. It appears that the third bracelet Meghan wore may be a smaller
diamond tennis bracelet in yellow gold. One of our WMW followers suggested that Meghan may possibly be wearing this Jennifer Meyer Mini Bezel Tennis Bracelet in yellow gold, $3000.
Below are some RepliMeg options for the bracelet.

UPDATE 3/1: In other news, the Archewell site has been updated. Per a tweet from Huffington Posts’ Carly Ledbetter, the site now lists over 20 “real acts of compassion” in support of both #InternationalWomensDay (March 8) and #WomensHistoryMonth. Options include donations, acts of service, expressing support & much more.
A spokesperson confirmed the couple will be engaging in many of the actions themselves throughout March.
