On Sunday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s much-anticipated conversation with Oprah Winfrey aired on CBS. The interview has shocked the world, with the couple sharing bombshell after bombshell about their lives before their much-publicised Royal exit earlier in 2020.
Their story had numerous parallels to what had happened to Prince Harry’s mother Princess Diana.
Tweeps have reacted to the shocking revelations in the sit-down.
Let’s be clear: Prince Harry and his wife just spent two hours trashing everything the Queen stands for & has worked so hard to maintain, whilst pretending to support her.
And they did it while her 99yr-old husband Philip is seriously ill in hospital.

What we learned from the interview
In the interview, she spoke about how Archie was stripped of the title of Prince. “They were saying they didn’t want him to be a prince or princess, which would be different from protocol, and that he wasn’t going to receive security.”
Meghan Markle says there were concerns in ?? Royal family about her child’s skin color.
“You’re not going to tell me who had that conversation?” Oprah asks.

Meghan told Oprah she suspected the reason Archie wasn’t given the title of Prince because “people” in the palace were concerned he might have dark skin on an account of her being a “woman of colour.
The wedding before the wedding
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had a private wedding ceremony before their public one that was just the two of them and the Archbishop of Canterbury. In the interview, she spoke about why this was important for them.
“Three days before our wedding, we got married,” Meghan said. “No one knows that. We called the Archbishop and we just said, look, this thing, this spectacle is for the world. But we want our union between us, so the vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury”
Meghan on being suicidal
She also spoke about the dark and difficult time and shared how she had suicidal thoughts.
“I’ve never felt this way before, and I need to go somewhere [to get help],” “This was very clear and very scary, “she says. “I was told that I couldn’t [get help], that it wouldn’t be good for the institution,” Meghan told Oprah.
