    Why is this interview a big deal?

    This is the first sit-down interview Meghan and Harry have done since stepping back from the royal family and by all accounts, it seems like no questions are off the table. For one, a teaser showed Meghan saying that, "There is an active role that the Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us" — which is already pretty juicy.

    Wait, what is the Firm?

    The royal family. Yeah, weird, I know.

    What's with the whole bullying thing?

    Earlier this week, the Sunday Times released a report alleging that Meghan bullied members of the Kensington Palace staff. Meghan's rep denied the "latest attack on her character" and a ton of celebs rallied to Meghan's defense. As mentioned, given that a teaser clip of tonight's interview has already accused the royal fam of "perpetuating falsehoods" about Meghan, it's likely that the interview will touch on things in this vein (if not the Times report itself, as the interview was pre-recorded).

    Were Harry and Meghan paid for this?

    CBS reportedly paid a licensing fee between $7 million and $9 million to air the interview. HOWEVER, Harry and Meg themselves weren't actually paid.
