In the footage, which was aired on Sunday night, Markle revealed that “being able to live authentically” was very important to her and Harry.
They admitted they hoped to “live authentically” in California with their son Archie and variety of animals.
“This kind of stuff is so basic, but it’s really fulfilling and about getting back to basics,” she said.
The couple walked the talk show host to their chicken coop – a home to rescued chickens.
In the video clip, an adorable red hen house dubbed “Archie’s Chick Inn” was also spotted.
Oprah said the chickens were saved from a nearby factory farm.
Footage of Markle and Harry’s son Archie playing on a beach was also played.

According to the Daily Mirror, Meghan and Harry filmed their bombshell interview with Oprah in the sprawling California mansion of CBS journalist and Winfrey’s close friend, Gayle King.
Oprah has been friends with Gayle for years and her private garden is shielded with greenery – making it the perfect spot for a private chat.
In the CBS interview, Meghan and Harry can be seen sitting on a neutrally decked terrace in front of an immaculate lawn.
The footage does not show inside Gayle’s home but the CBS presenter has recently shared sneak peaks inside with fans – with candid snaps showing her stylish living room and lavish interiors.
Hinting at the location on CBS This Morning, Gayle said: “They taped at a friend’s home. People said it was at Oprah’s house or Harry and Meghan’s, [but] it was at a friend’s home.”

Last year, Markle and Harry’s $10.4million California mansion was claimed to be “funded by Prince Charles.”
The pair had moved into their new family home in Santa Barbara after moving from Tyler Perry’s $18million LA mansion, Page Six reported.
Their neighbors reportedly include talk show queens Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres – along with Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis.

A source told the Mail Online: “Charles had been keen to help out and put his hand in his own pocket to assist.
“He is devoted to both his sons and any time he can assist them he always will.”
The couple inked a $10m deal on their new home, which is located in the exclusive area of Montecito, TMZ reported.
And the news outlet also reported that Oprah Winfrey, who has a sprawling $90m property nearby, helped “guide” them while they were house hunting.
In fact, it was the TV icon who introduced Harry and Meghan to their former landlord Tyler Perry, TMZ reported.
Oprah connected with the prince after they co-produced a documentary about mental health.
The royal couple’s new pad is in a secure, gated community where properties have plenty of land and are considerably larger than homes for the same price in LA, it has been reported.
