Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will return to the spotlight tomorrow as their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey is analysed in a new 60-minute documentary. The programme, titled Meghan and Harry: Recollections May Vary, promises to delve deep “into the biggest royal crisis in living memory”.
The programme, produced by Shearwater for discovery+, will see a number of experts analyse key moments from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview.
Shearwater said “no topic is off limits” and said experts will also examine Meghan and Harry’s previous public appearances, including the notorious Tom Bradby interview from 2019.
In a dramatic 30-second trailer for the documentary, an expert starts by saying: “What we have got is a family in crisis.”
A voiceover then says: “You’ve read the headlines, you’ve seen the fallout.
“Now our experts have their say on the biggest royal crisis in living memory.”
The documentary will feature body language expert Dr Cliff Lansley, Professor of Linguistics Dawn Archer and Forensic Psychologist Kerry Daynes.
The trio will scrutinise parts of the Oprah interview and unpick the couple’s speech, tone of voice, movements and expressions frame by frame.
The experts will also analyse the claims made by Meghan and Harry, including their allegations of racism in the Royal Family and the Duke’s strained relationship with his family.

Clare Laycock, SVP, Planning and Head of Content, Lifestyle & Entertainment, said: “In one of our most ambitious investigative specials to date, the Royal interview that divided the world is going under the microscope.
“With Shearwater at the helm, Meghan and Harry: Recollections May Vary promises to serve up some ground-breaking insights that may finally put to bed questions around the claims that made headlines… tune in to find out!”
Shearwater Media Executive Producer Steve Anderson said: “This is a new and different way to dissect the interview of the year.
“What is revealed by facial expressions, physical gestures and patterns of speech? The answers are fascinating.”

The title of the programme uses a phrase used in Buckingham Palace’s official response to the interview.
More than a day after the programme aired, a statement was issued on behalf of the Queen and read: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.
“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. “While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.
“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members.”
Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah aired at the start of March, and sent shockwaves around the world.
The couple accused an unnamed member of the Royal Family of racism, something Prince William later furiously denied.
Meghan also opened up on her mental health, and said she reached a real low point when she was pregnant with Archie in 2019.
The Duchess also claimed the Royal Family did little to support her when she was feeling suicidal.
