Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stayed at Oprah Winfrey’s mansion.
They are said to have been at the US chatshow host’s sprawling house in Montecito, Santa Barbara, so they could get a feel for the area before moving into a property nearby.
The couple have now granted Oprah a tell-all interview.
News of their secret visit comes after it was confirmed the couple would be appearing on the star’s show for a tell-all interview.
Last night a source said: “Oprah has been incredibly supportive since the couple moved Stateside.
“She specifically helped out Meghan’s mum, Doria, and gave some really helpful and practical advice in dealing with all the attention.
“She also lives in super-exclusive Montecito and recommended it to the couple.
“When they were renting, she offered them use of her massive mansion so they could get a proper feel for the place — and just hide out discreetly, away from prying eyes.
“It’s little wonder they’ve entrusted her with their first major interview since quitting the Royal Family.
“This is a huge coup for Oprah and she’s understandably delighted.”
