On Sunday night, the world got the most BTS look at the royal family since Princess Diana's 1995 BBC interview when Oprah’s "no-holds barred" special with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry aired. The pre-recorded conversation was billed as a“wide-ranging interview covering everything from [Markle] stepping into life as a royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work to how she is handling life under intense public press.”
In the two-hour special, Meghan and Harry revealed that, not only did they receive very little support from members of the royal family when it came to handling racist reporting from the press, but Markle was also denied help for her mental health. And perhaps the biggest revelation of all: that a particular — unnamed — member of the royal family made comments concerning the colour of baby Archie’s skin.
If you missed out on the OG stream and are now regretting it, Canadians can now stream the interview for free on Global TV for the next seven days.
Meghan and Harry announced last January that they were stepping back from their roles as official members of the royal family, which is also known as The Firm. Meghan commented about their relationship with the palace in another preview for the “no subject that's off-limits” interview, saying: "I don't know how they could expect that after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that the Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us."
