With stunning inevitability, Harry and Meghan are now scheduled to appear on a tell-all Oprah Special next month.
Despite the double billing, though, it seems that it's going to be largely The Meghan Show, with hubby only making an appearance later on in the proceedings, like some befuddled dad just coming in from the garden to see what's going on.
Which just about says it all as to who holds the power in the marriage.
The blurb from CBS boasts that Meghan will talk about "stepping into life as a royal, marriage, motherhood…" as well as "handling life under intense public pressure". The couple will also speak about their move to the US.
But we all know what to expect - Oprah gently lobbing underarm questions for Meghan to smash back at the royal family. Whack! Take that, William!
As Eamonn Holmes put it, it's more likely to be an advert rather than a probing interview.
Of course, it will all be wrapped up in faux deference and served with a side of word salad featuring terms like 'healing', 'empowerment', and 'positive energy'.
Harry, however, should note that previous in-depth royal interviews haven't served the monarchy well - indeed, as his own parents found out to their cost.
Diana's infamous Panorama sit-down with Martin Bashir - now the subject of a BBC investigation after claims the interviewer forged bank statements to persuade his quarry to talk - proved bruising for both the institution and the princess, who later deeply regretted opening up about her marriage troubles.
Charles' adultery confession in a TV chat with Jonathan Dimbleby has haunted him ever since.
More recently, the Duke of York's bombshell interview with Newsnight's Emily Maitlis about his friendship with the paedophile Jeffrey Epstein blew up in his face.
Regardless of intent, these TV specials always result in a further stripping away of the aura of the Crown.
Look how jarring it was to see pampered Meghan standing in South Africa, a continent where thousands of children still die from lack of water, and moaning to ITV's Tom Bradby about how no one ever asks how she feels.
It wasn't for nothing that the canny old Queen Mum adopted the mantra of "never complain, never explain".
That's not to say there wasn't a great deal of affection for Meghan when she first came on the royal scene. The public loved Harry's confident, beautiful mixed-race bride. The pair were seen as modernising and radiated star power.
But gaffes such as Harry lecturing the rest of us on climate change before the couple flew by private jet to Sir Elton John's villa in Nice took the shine off somewhat.
Meghan's desperately sad falling-out with her father Thomas Markle continues to cast a shadow, too. Here was a couple with the world at their feet who appeared to cut adrift an elderly man on his uppers struggling to cope with the attendant pressures of his adored daughter marrying into the royal family.
Indeed, the Duchess of Sussex's victory last week in her legal action against the Mail on Sunday, when she successfully sued it for publishing a letter to her dad, highlights one of the most troubling aspects of Harry and Meghan's relationship with publicity: namely, it seems to be OK so long as it's on their terms.
Mr Markle only handed the letter to the newspaper to give his side of the story after Meghan's friends selectively leaked details to a US publication, but the court ruling means he'd no right to do so, even to try and defend his own reputation.
As well as the perturbing implications for any newspaper now considering publishing any leaked letter, the verdict would appear to illustrate how people in positions of power like Harry and Meghan can set about controlling Press coverage about themselves.
Ultimately, for all the talk of privacy, they appear more than eager to use the media to serve up a diet of PR-puff pieces presenting themselves in the best possible light.
Significantly, the Sussexes don't seem to have informed the Royal Household about their Oprah gig. So, the Windsors will just have to pull up a chair and watch the show at the same time as Joe Public. If that doesn't make them nervous, nothing will.
Still, a year after the Sussexes departed UK shores, it's clear the Windsors can survive happily without them. Given the emotional turmoil and upset caused by Megxit, the Queen, at 94, must take great comfort from the huge popularity of William, Kate and their three children.
Unlike Meghan and Harry, the Cambridges, who celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary this year, have always grasped what being royal really means.
About William and Kate's political beliefs, we know nothing. But who doesn't know where Harry and Meghan are coming from?
When Kate became a royal she endured an onslaught by a media that made snobbish jibes about her being the daughter of an air hostess. But she never uttered a single word of complaint about no one caring about her feelings, instead she just got on with visiting hospitals in rainswept British cities.
Unsurprisingly, it looks like we've reached crunch time for Harry and Meghan's new life outside the monarchy. Reports suggest they'll be stripped off their remaining royal patronages and links with the Commonwealth.
Maybe it's time for the royal titles to go now too. The Sussexes really can't set up an alternative court in Hollywood, snaffling up lucrative contracts because of their royal links but simultaneously damaging the royal brand.
Who knows? A clean break might be the best thing for Harry and Meghan. Freed from being working royals, they've settled into Casa Sussex in California with its 16 bathrooms. This week they shared the joyful news that son Archie will have a sibling.
You simply can't be half-in and half-out of the royal family - otherwise the public just resent seeing people enjoying wealth and privilege without any of the boring old stuff about duty.
It's easy to talk the talk, now the Sussexes should walk the walk and declare they want to make it Stateside as Harry and Meghan, stars outside of the royal family. After all, the American Dream is all about making it on your own.
