Meghan and Kate Middleton
Meghan claimed that the Duchess of Cambridge made her cry before her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018.
Asked about a falling out over the flower girl dresses, Meghan denied making Kate cry but described how the opposite happened.
However Meghan said Kate sent her flowers to apologise and ‘owned it’ in what was a “really hard week of the wedding”.
Meghan claimed she had suicidal thoughts
The Duchess of Sussex described in the interview how she considered ending her life.
As she broke down in tears, Meghan told Oprah: “I just didn’t see a solution. I didn’t want to be alive anymore.”
She added she “couldn’t be left alone” during her pregnancy with first child Archie, saying it was “a real and frightening and constant thought” but her husband Harry “cradled” her.
Archie having a title
Meghan claimed that there were “concerns and conversations” regarding “how dark” Archie’s skin would be before he was born because she is mixed-race.
The Duchess of Sussex claimed that she and Harry were told Archie would not receive security because he is “not going to be a prince”.
Meghan Markle and the Queen
The Duchess of Sussex praised the Queen during the interview and told how the monarch was “wonderful” to her and that she “loved being in her company”.
Meghan also revealed to Oprah that the Queen gave her some “beautiful pearl earrings and a matching necklace”.
In a sweet gesture, the former Suits actress told how the Queen also offered Meghan to share the blanket that was placed over her knees for warmth while they were in the car between engagements.
Meghan said that she also called the Queen to ask about the Duke of Edinburgh’s health after the 99-year-old was admitted to hospital in London last month.
Harry and Meghan’s secret wedding
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex claimed they actually wed three days before they tied the knot ahead of their “spectacle” in front of the world on May 19 2018.
Megan told Oprah, while sitting in the chicken coop at their Santa Barbara home, that the couple called the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and asked him to marry them in private.
The couple now have their personal vows framed in the bedroom of their $14.5million Montecito mansion in California.
All Church of England weddings legally require two witnesses who must be present when the bride and groom make their declarations and exchange their vows.
However it is unknown if the Archbishop of Canterbury has the power to override the Church of England rules.
Prince Harry says his brother and father are ‘trapped’
The Duke of Sussex revealed his brother Prince William and father Prince Charles are “trapped” and he has “huge compassion” for them as they cannot leave the Royal Family.
Harry claimed he was also “trapped” before he met Meghan when their worlds “collided” and said that without the former actress by his side he would not stepped back from royal life.
He also claimed that the Prince of Wales stopped taking his calls during the lead-up to the announcement that the couple would be stepping down as senior royals in January 2020.
