The Prince Harry and Meghan Markle interview may well be the most talked-about TV special of the year, but Oprah Winfrey isn't slowing down. The talk show host has also sat down with Indian actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas as part of her Super Soul series.

The interview will premiere on Discovery + on March 20.

Chopra Jonas is notably a friend of the Duchess of Sussex, and attended her 2018 wedding to Prince Harry, along with Winfrey.

A teaser for the chat has dropped online, which shows Winfrey sat in a similar set-up to her interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, with Chopra sat across from her in a garden setting. In the clip, the host asks the actress, "Do you and Nick [Jonas] hope to have a family one day?”

To which she replies, "I am a very live-in-the-today, maximum live-in-the-next-two-months kind of person. But in 10 years, I definitely want to have kids. That is, it’s going to happen in the next 10 years."

She adds: "Well, hopefully earlier than that. I’m very fond of children and I want to be able to do that."

Andra Day, Chip and Joanna Gaines, Sharon Stone, Jon Meacham and Julianna Margulies also appear in the teaser clip, which Winfrey speaks over, saying: "I just love being able to have thought-provoking, heart-expanding talks with people who inspire us all, to think about the deeper meaning of life.

"That's why I am thrilled to announce Super Soul, has a brand new home on Discovery+, [with] an exciting new season of interviews."

Super Soul Sunday started in 2011 as a self-help talk show hosted by Winfrey. It originally aired on her Oprah Winfrey Network, but has moved to Discovery+ for its 18th season.

It has since spawned a podcast, which launched in 2017, called Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations. A number of the podcasts use interviews recorded for the TV show, however others include original podcast content.

Interviewees have included Michelle Obama, Mindy Kaling, Tina Turner, Jordan Peele, Trevor Noah, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Yara Shahidi, Melinda Gates, Michael B Jordan and Beto O'Rourke.

A UAE premiere date for the Chopra Jonas interview has not yet been confirmed.
