Claims of suicidal thoughts, racism, and confirmation the royal coffers snapped shut for Prince Harry and Meghan a year ago.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex laid bare their version of events in a two-hour sit down interview with Oprah Winfrey.

They told the US chat show host someone in the Royal family expressed concern about how dark Archie's skin would be and at one point Prince Charles refused to take Harry's calls.

The couple also revealed they had actually married in secret three days before their televised wedding and they are expecting a baby girl.

In the lead up to Harry and Meghan's wedding in 2018, entertainment correspondent Sean Mandell spoke to Meghan's father Thomas.
