Some of the bombshell allegations made during the interview from the couple were on the topics like the Royal Family’s lack of protection towards the couple amid tabloid headlines of a family feud, their mental health taking a toll (Meghan admitted to having ‘suicidal thoughts’, and being financially cut off from the monarchy.
Harry also touched on a falling out he had with his father, Prince Charles and claims it was his mother, the late Princess Diana who has “been with us this whole process”. He also addressed the ‘rift’ he had with his brother Prince William, admitting they were on “different paths”.
But it was Meghan’s jaw-dropping allegation that members of the Royal Family were “concerned” about Archie’s skin colour (prior to him being born) that really struck a chord
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.

“My family literally cut me off financially in the first half of 2020 but I have what my Mum left me and without that we wouldn’t have been able to do this. It’s like she saw it coming and she’s been with us through this whole process” Prince Harry #OprahMeghanHarry pic.twitter.com/TsLK7BfQZd
