PRINCE Harry and Meghan’s interview with chat queen Oprah Winfrey is set to be broadcast at primetime in the UK — with ITV clear favourites to screen it.
Rivals BBC did not bid and Sky pulled out of the running for the rights to the couple’s “intimate” 90-minute chat.

Sources claim they will reveal the “tension” within the Royal Family.
US chat show veteran Oprah, 67, sat down with the Sussexes last week — shortly before The Queen confirmed they had quit royal life.
Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, pledged they will be “speaking their truth” during the interview, which will be shown on CBS in the US late on March 7.
That is the early hours in the UK but ITV is believed to be the sole candidate for the rights to air it the following evening.
A source claims: “There is a lot of tension between them and the Royal Family.
“The interview is going to shine a light on what they have been through. Meghan and Harry are relieved they are away from it all.”
Oprah was photographed climbing into her £50million private jet last Friday after filming the interview in California.
Harry and Meghan were stripped of their royal patronages and military titles after the Queen refused their request for a hybrid role.
Her Majesty will give a televised message to mark Commonwealth Week hours before the interview airs in the US.
