Where was the interview filmed?
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.”

Why wasn’t it filmed at the Sussexes’ home?
It is not clear why Meghan and Harry chose to shoot the majority of their interview at their friend’s home.
It is possible they wanted to maintain some privacy, although Oprah hints at the start of their chat it was because the surroundings of Gayle King’s garden were just so beautiful.
While the majority of the chat is understood to be at Gayle King’s, Meghan and Harry’s home does feature in the two hour screening.
One clip shows Oprah visiting the couple’s garden at their new home in California, marvelling at Meg and Harry’s rescued chickens.
It is here that Meghan reveal she and Harry married three days before their Royal wedding in 2018.
Were Harry and Meghan paid for the interview?
Harry and Meghan were not paid for their interview with Oprah.
At the start of their chat, Oprah says: “You are not getting paid for this interview.”
Meghan replies: “That is correct.”
