Possibly the most anticipated interview in some time, Oprah Winfrey’s sit down with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle happens this Sunday but something else has caught our attention in lead up to the interview.

Some of the British press haven’t been shy about their feelings about Markle and her time in the royal family. The negative coverage has been one of the main factors that led to the couple’s quick departure from British shores.

A hilarious video shared on Twitter depicting about how newsrooms in the UK come up with headlines about Markle and how this might be possible.

This week the former Duchess won her legal battle against Mail on Sunday after it published extracts of a private letter she sent to her father, Thomas Markle, in which she asked him to stop talking to tabloids and making false claims about her in interviews.

Judge Mark Warby in the High Court in London on Tuesday ordered Associated Newspapers to make an “interim payment” of £450,000 (about R9.4 million) to cover legal costs.

Harry and Meghan are set to air all in an exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey about the difficult decision to leave royal duty.

M-net will be airing the CBS interview on Monday at 7.30pm.
