The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s much-awaited interview with Oprah Winfrey have broadcasted in the US. They shared their side of the story about life at the Royal Family. 

Meghan conversated with Oprah for most of the interview before being accompanied by Prince Harry.

This interview will be aired on ITV on Monday at 21:00 GMT and on ITV Hub.

Main talking points

  1. Discussions about how dark-skinned Meghan’s baby might be. She said the conversations were with Prince Harry, who conveyed them to her.
  2. Meghan said she was on the brink of suicide but was denied help. She spoke about how lonely she felt after joining the Royal Family and the loss of her freedom. Her mental health got so worse that she “didn’t want to be alive any more”. “I went to the institution, “one of the most senior people”, and then to the human resource department, and I was told that I couldn’t, that it wouldn’t be suitable for the institution.”
  3. At the beginning of 2020, Harry said his family cut him off financially. The Spotify and Netflix deals that he and Meghan have struck to make shows and podcasts were never part of the plan but for security. ” I’ve got what my mother left me, and without that, we wouldn’t have been able to do this.”
  4. But the relationship with the Queen is “really-good”. Harry said he has spoken to her more in the last year – including video calls with Archie – than he has for many years. “She’s my colonel-in-chief, right? She always will be.” Meghan also praised the Queen and said she gave her some beautiful jewellery for the couple’s first joint engagement and shared a blanket with her to keep warm while travelling together.
  5. And it’s a girl! The couple confirms they’re awaiting a baby girl in the summer. Harry said it was “amazing”, adding: “What more can you ask for?” – but said they would be done after baby number two arrives. Towards the end of the conversation, Oprah asked if Meghan had got her happy ending with Prince Harry after all. “Greater than any fairytale that you’ve ever read,” she exclaimed.
