Oprah Winfrey’s Harry and Meghan interview was quite the bombshell – 22 initial reactions

Although the interview has yet to air on UK TV, at the time of writing, Meghan and Harry’s candid revelations to Oprah Winfrey went out to the US – and any Brits who could be bothered accessing the show – during the early hours of Monday, UK time.

Some revelations, with a trigger warning for self-harm, include:

One member of the Royal household raised concerns about the potential skin colour of the couple’s then unborn son, Archie.

Diana’s legacy to Harry allowed them to leave the country.

Meghan experienced suicidal thoughts and was forbidden to get psychiatric help as the family didn’t like the optics.

Prince Charles temporarily stopped taking Harry’s calls.

The topic is going to dominate social media – and Piers Morgan’s fever dreams – for the foreseeable future, but here’s a fraction of what has been said so far.
