Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's much-hyped interview with Oprah Winfrey was not filmed at their home, a prominent journalist claims.
Two short teaser clips from the upcoming CBS special were released on Monday, sparking a frenzy of excitement and speculation about what would be said from fans of the couple.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex can be seen sitting on outdoor furniture across from Oprah in what looks like a large and well-maintained garden full of grass, trees and vines wrapped around a column.
Many people assumed the interview had been recorded in Meghan and Harry's Montecito mansion, which they bought for more than £10 million after moving to California last year.
But veteran CBS journalist Gayle King, a friend of Oprah, has poured cold water on the theory that the couple allowed a TV crew inside their home.
"They taped at a friend's home," she told the Daily Mail.
"People said it was at Oprah's house or Harry and Meghan's, (but) it was at a friend's home."

She did not provide any other details about which friend lent the couple their home for filming.
The TV special, set to air next Monday, promises an in-depth examination of where the couple's heads are at almost a full year after they formally stepped away from the Royal Family on March 31, 2020.
The two clips released so far have only shown Harry speaking while Meghan, pregnant with their second child, nods or makes noises of agreement.
In one teaser the Duke revealed his urge to leave the Palace was born partly out of fear that his wife would fall victim to the same treatment as his mother.
Princess Diana was hounded by the press for much of her adult life, and Harry has spoken before about his belief that the paparazzi had a hand in her death in a car crash in Paris in 1997.
"I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like for her going through this process by herself all those years ago, because it has been unbelievably tough for the two of us – but at least we had each other," he said in a clip from the Oprah interview.
"My biggest concern was history repeating itself.
"For me, I'm just really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you with my wife by my side."
It's the first in-person televised interview the couple have given since "Megxit", and millions are expected to watch the "intimate conversation".
Oprah With Meghan And Harry: A CBS Primetime Special will be broadcast on March 7 in the US.
It remains unknown where UK viewers will be able to watch the special in its entirety.
