Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly plotting a second interview with Oprah Winfrey as a "damage control" after a series of negative issues about them emerged, a source has claimed.

According to a source close to the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan and the Duke of Sussex are already in contact with Winfrey's team about another public "chat" with the aim to "change the narrative" and do "some major damage control." 

Harry and Meghan had their first interview with Winfrey after stepping down from their royal duties; it was aired in March 2021, which revealed shocking details concerning the British Royal Family. During the discussion, the couple shared that a family member had raised "concerns and conversations" over Archie's skin color. Also, Harry claimed that his father, Prince Charles had "stopped taking my calls."

Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, are said to be ready to make more bombshell claims following the release of "The Palace Papers: Inside the House of Windsor, the Truth and the Turmoil," a new book written by Tina Brown. She interviewed several insiders and royal contacts for the book, which is believed to "really gotten under Meghan's skin." 

A source told Heat magazine, "These latest claims have really gotten under Meghan's skin. She's told her team that something needs to be done. She's so sick of the negative headlines and she's desperate to come out fighting with some major damage control."

"Meghan feels as though doing another chat with Oprah is the best way to change the narrative and counter all the negative claims she's read about herself recently. She's been in contact with Oprah's people already." 

Meghan wanted to disprove Brown's account of when the Sussexes visited Australia and the South Pacific in 2018. Brown, author of "The Diana Chronicles" in 2006, described how Meghan hated it. "She found the itinerary of engagements' pointless,' a former palace employee told me."

The author continued to say, "She didn't understand why things were set up in that way. Instead of being excited when thousands of people showed up at the [Sydney] Opera House, it was very much like, 'What's the purpose? I don't understand this,' the ex-staffer said."

Brown added, "The 'this' being the representational role of the British monarchy and its traditional agenda, rather than the focus on causes she wanted to spotlight. Such engagements are old school, yes, but create classic royal ties that bind."
