The Queen has not been given an advance copy of Meghan and Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
- Royal aides and the monarch will watch 'at the same time' as the public, reports claim.
- Officials have vowed to 'reserve judgement' on the bombshell interview and will decide on Monday whether to make a public response.
- This follows royal news that a former co-worker has defended Meghan.
Sources have told The Mirror that the Queen does not have an advance copy of the interview - which is set to contain shocking revelations about Meghan's short time as a working royal.
Teaser trailers have already circulated, which show the Duchess of Sussex accuse The Firm of 'perpetuating falsehoods' about her and Prince Harry.

The Sussexes have been criticised for doing the bombshell interview while Prince Harry's grandfather, Prince Philip, is still recovering from heart surgery in hospital.
More from Woman & Home:
Most of the interview will be a chat between Oprah and Meghan, but Prince Harry is understood to come in towards the end to have his say.
It is believed that this approach has been done in an attempt to distance himself from any of the stronger allegations made about his own family by his wife.
The interview will air in the UK on ITV at 9pm on Monday.
