Things you should know about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah

One of the most talked-about topics on the internet today is the Oprah Winfrey's interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The interview comes after Harry and Meghan decided to step back from the English Royal Family last year and relocated to the United States

The interview has also been branded the most important piece of royal TV since Harry's mother, Princess Diana, spoke to the BBC's Martin Bashir in 1995 after her separation from Prince Charles.

Here are a couple of teas spilt during the interview:

1. Meghan says she was depressed living in the palace and often contemplated suicide. "I didn't want to be alive anymore," she says.

2. Harry discloses that his family has been cut off financially from the palace, which is why they had to seek deals with Netflix and Spotify.

3. Harry says his family never really liked Meghan from the beginning and he was told that they were never going to foot her bills. He said “But that was right at the beginning when she wasn't going to get security when members of my family were suggesting that she carries on acting because there was not enough money to pay for her, and all this sort of stuff. Like, there was some real obvious signs before we even got married that this was going to be really hard,

4. Meghan discloses that one member of the Royal Family was very concerned about how brown or black their son (Archie) was going to be before he was born.

She said “In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, we have in tandem, the conversation of "He won't be given security, he's not going to be given a title," and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born

5. Asked if it was 'important' for her that Archie be called a Prince, Meghan says she doesn't have any attachment to the 'grandeur' of official titles.

6. Meghan discloses that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, who is Prince William's wife, once made her cry.

She said A few days before the wedding, she was upset about something pertaining - yes, the issue was correct - about flower girl dresses, and it made me cry, and it really hurt my feelings. But she owned it, and she apologised. And she brought me flowers and a note, apologising

7. Meghan says members of the Royal Family were willing to lie to protect other members of the family, "but they weren't willing, to tell the truth, to protect me and my husband."

8. Meghan says she entered the Royal Family naively and that she was shocked when she had to curtsy before the queen during their first meeting.

She said “That was when the penny dropped. We just practised and then walked in. We went in and I met her and apparently, I did a very deep curtsy, I don't remember it. Then we just sat there and chatted. I grew up in LA (Los Angeles), I see celebrities all the time. It's not the same. This is a completely different ball game

9. Harry says they were left with no security from Buckingham Palace when they escaped the UK for Canada and then for California. He adds that it was Tyler Perry who came to their rescue by offering them a roof over their heads and security.

10. Meghan and Harry are expecting a baby girl in the summer. She displays her growing baby bump during the Oprah interview.
