But that's not all. Here's the full story...

Now, it's the interview that everyone has been talking about.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's 2-hour-long interview with Oprah Winfrey aired on CBS on Sunday, March 7th and viewers watched on in shock as some mind-blowing allegations were made against the monarchy.

For example...

It was claimed that senior members of the family had refused to get Meghan professional help when she was experiencing suicidal thoughts during her pregnancy with Archie.

Meghan also addressed that incident with her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.

Headlines were made in 2018 when Meghan allegedly "made Kate cry" in a row about bridesmaids' dresses in the days before her and Harry's wedding - well, in her chat with Oprah, Meghan claimed that Kate was the one to make her cry.

Though she did stress that Kate had apologized and that she had "forgiven her."

She also addressed the ongoing issues of racism within the monarchy.

Meghan claimed an unnamed senior member of the Royal family raised "concerns" about how dark Archie's skin would be before his birth.

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

Harry then explained that he "had to get out," though when he did he was "cut off financially" when he and Meghan needed help the most...

He also added that they've since been relying on his inheritance from Princess Diana.

"I was totally cut off financially. My family cut me off – if I didn't have what my mom left me, we wouldn't have been able to do this."

"All I wanted to do was keep my family safe."

Meghan then insisted that they never had any plans at first to quit the U.K - she said the intention was to "do this forever" and that she told the royal family to "use me as much as you like."

Later in the interview, Oprah asked how the prince thinks the late Princess Diana would have felt about the rifts that drove them to step back from the royal family.

"I think she would feel very angry with how this has panned out, and very sad," Harry said, "But ultimately, all she'd ever want is for us to be happy."

Quite predictably, opinion was well and truly divided over the interview...

With a vast majority feeling sympathetic for Harry and Meghan over what they've allegedly endured in the last few years.

But on the other hand...

People have been slamming the pair for agreeing to take part in Oprah's interview and have even been brandishing them as "liars"... including Piers Morgan, of course!

It's undoubtedly caused a lot of drama...

And the couple have been the talk of the entire world in the last month since the interview aired.

But many have been left wondering how the royals have been dealing with the accusations made against them.

Getty

Of course, it's important to remember that the royals are Prince Harry's family... so the strain must be huge at the moment.

It's been rumored that Harry's relationship with his brother, Prince William, has been under strain for quite some time now...

Getty

And we can imagine that the interview poured even more fuel on the fire for the usually close pair.

Things reportedly haven't been easy for the future King of England...

Getty

Which is where Kate Middleton comes into the equation.

Kate has been married to William since 2011...

And the couple have since welcomed 3 children into the world - Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

They're one of the most loved and famous couples in the world...

And now, Kate has just given us yet another reason to love and admire her.

A royal source has opened up about how Kate has been "stepping up" as a supportive wife to Prince William in the aftermath of the interview.

"Kate has been there for William recently, especially after his conversations with Harry didn't go too well," Kate Nicholl told the U.K's OK! magazine.

She went on:

Getty

"Kate has always remained loyal to William despite how close she was to Harry. Her loyalties are with her husband and their family. Even though she'd love peace and harmony, she sympathises with William's upset and anger."

She added that the birth of her sister, Pippa Middleton's, daughter Grace has been a huge source of joy.

"Pippa's baby joy has been a welcome distraction for Kate after a difficult few weeks. It's really put a smile back on her face."

We're sure William will get through this difficult patch with Kate by his side!
