During the interview, the couple spoke at length about their struggles with mental health, racism and their relationship with the palace.

Below is everything you need to know about Oprah Winfrey’s Harry and Meghan interview, including how and where to watch.

What did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle speak about with Oprah Winfrey?

In a series of stunning revelations, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex accused the palace of fostering an atmosphere of hostility that reached a point where Meghan contemplated taking her life. “I was ashamed to say it at the time... I just didn’t want to be alive any more. And that was a very real and clear and frightening and constant thought,” she shared.

Meghan also claimed that a member of the royal family relayed concerns regarding “how dark” the skin of their son Archie would be when he is born.

Prince Harry spoke about how he felt really “let down” by Prince Charles as he longed for the public support of his family, particularly during a time when his wife faced scrutiny from the British tabloids.

And in a lighthearted moment, the couple revealed that they are due to welcome a baby girl sometime later in the summer.
