In case you weren't aware, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have agreed to a tell-all interview with the one and only Oprah, following their decision to depart from the royal family once and for all.

This morning, CBS (who will air the interview, and who extended the time slot for the chat from 90 minutes to 2 whole hours, according to Omid Scobie) released a trailer for the Oprah Special, featuring clips with Meghan and Harry.

The pair are seated outdoors, with Harry in a smart crisp suit and Meghan in a floral Armani dress, as they talk Oprah through their experiences.

In a secondary clip, comparing his and Meghan's life experiences to those of his mother, the late Princess Diana, Harry says:

"For me, I'm just really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you, with my wife by my side. Because I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like for her, going through this process by herself, all those years ago. Because it has been unbelievably tough for the two of us. But at least we have each other."

To which Meghan replies: "Yeah...".

In true Cosmopolitan Beauty Team fashion, we immediately began scanning the couple for other clues for what sort of bombshells might be on the way in the full interview - and we could not stop staring at Meghan's eye makeup choices.

As you might be aware, Royals are expected to stick to pretty strict regulations re: glam choices - and as Meghan has disentangled herself from her former regal life, her hair and makeup have, at times, shown coded messages.

So what might her super moody, badass smoked out eye, with lashings of eyeliner and mascara possibly mean as Meghan embarks on a tell-all about her life as a royal? Well, in my opinion either signalling that she's out to tell her real, raw story... or she's relishing the opportunity to get out her makeup palettes after a long time spent locked down due to the pandemic.

Or...maybe it's a bit of both?
