Following their controversial departure from the British monarchy, the former-royals sat down with Oprah earlier in the month to give their side of the story.
Their 2-hour-long interview aired on CBS on Sunday, March 7th...
And viewers watched on in shock as some mind-blowing allegations were made against the monarchy.
Meghan Markle was SUICIDAL and the royal family DENIED her mental health treatment, but she persevered and her openness will SAVE LIVES. 🙏🏽— Cleavon MD (@Cleavon_MD) March 8, 2021
Every 40 seconds, a person dies by suicide
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."
But Meghan wasn't the only one to spill the royal tea.
Prince Harry himself spoke candidly about his current relationship with his family and how he has been "financially cut off," which initially left him fearing for the future.
Harry 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 has been well and truly divided over the interview...
Sometimes we forget that Harry and Meghan are facing a monarchy a whole establishment, that uses public money , and a tabloid empire to smear them in every continent.— whiteTeethNotRoyalist (@whiteteeth75) March 14, 2021
These 2 are doing GREAT.
David against Goliath 2.0
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...
Another lie exposed, they're coming thick and fast: https://t.co/lImQ73Dw33— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 8, 2021
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, who actually resigned from his job on Good Morning Britain after bosses ordered him to apologize for saying he didn't believe Meghan's mental health claims.
The backlash has been vicious, to say the least...
Sky News reported that a survey conducted amongst 1,664 British respondents found that forty-eight percent had a more negative view of Prince Harry following the interview, while only thirty-one percent had a positive opinion on Meghan.
And now her dad wants to give his side of the story...
Thomas Markle asked to "give his side of the story" in a letter which was hand-delivered to Oprah's home.
And people have had mixed reactions to his latest actions...

Thomas Markle trying to go to Oprah's with a letter and of course with photographers to capture it, is the exact reason his daughter does not want contact with him. I am sure he was paid for his pitiful stunt. Shocked he didn't have crazy Samantha in tow as well pic.twitter.com/nJf7MhKkSw— Amy 🌸📚💗 (@Steelers_Girl74) March 28, 2021
Mr Thomas Markle dropping a written request to @Oprah to have an interview to give his side of the story. Mr Markle has been giving his views for over 2 years. How much was he paid for this stunt? @thesun pic.twitter.com/0wGg3eRNHd— 🌸💖ROCKY💖🌸 (@R_O_C_K_Y_WORLD) March 28, 2021
It seems @Oprah has been called out by Megan Markle’s dad.— Trevor Coult MC (@MrTrevorCoultMC) March 27, 2021

Lol. And how many endless nasty interviews with Thomas Markle and Samantha Markle has the British media published? Not to mention illegally publishing a private letter from Meghan.— 🕊Scout (@about_scout) March 23, 2021
And Samantha admits....she's doing it for the paycheck. pic.twitter.com/oO0HFwxLDx
It comes after he appeared on ITV's Good Morning Britain after their explosive chat with Oprah.
On the show, he revealed how he is desperate to reconcile with Meghan.
He also admitted they had fallen out back in 2018 after he spoke to the press before their wedding.
A source told The Sun: "Thomas delivered a letter to Oprah asking her to contact him so he could tell his side of the story."
"This was not a note to Meghan and Harry, it was meant for Oprah. Thomas watched the interview she did with them and feels he deserves a chance to have his say."
During her interview with Oprah, Meghan labelled her dad talking to the press as a "betrayal."
But despite his daughter's claims, Thomas Markle defended the royals...
He said: "I have great respect for the Royals, and I don't think the British royal family is racist at all. I don't think the British are racist, I think Los Angeles is racist, California is a racist, but I don't think the Brits are."
"The thing about what color will the baby be or how dark will the baby be, I'm guessing and hoping it's just a dumb question from somebody, you know, it could just be that simple."
After Meghan and Harry's interview, the royal family issued a statement...
Thomas Markle was pictured delivering a letter to Oprah Winfrey’s house, asking for an interview with the US TV host.— yinksukblog (@yinksukblog) March 26, 2021
He drove up to Oprah's property in Montecito, California, which is close to his daughter Meghan Markle's home, and handed the letter to pic.twitter.com/XABwMYdljo
They said: "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.
"The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately."
