As OK! previously reported, the 36-year-old and Markle sat down with Winfrey earlier this year and lifted the veil on life behind the palace walls.

The pair revealed explosive and damaging secrets the monarchy had been trying to conceal. They alleged racism within the family itself, and the 40-year-old former Suits actress admitted she felt suicidal during her pregnancy with their son Archie. The mother-of-two also revealed that she felt isolated and lonely as a royal.

Markle claimed there were concerns of the color of Archie’s skin tone, telling The Color Purple star an unnamed member of the royal family questioned how dark the now-two-year-old great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II’s skin would be at birth.

Prince Harry spilled during the televised chat that his estranged dad had “stopped taking'' his calls and shockingly claimed Prince Charles and his older brother, Prince William, are “trapped” within their royal roles.

Harry then slammed his father’s parenting skills on Dax Shepard’s podcast “Armchair Expert,” saying Charles had passed down a cycle of “genetic pain and suffering,” which deeply affected his childhood.

“He treated me the way he was treated,” the royal renegade told Shepard. “So we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say, ‘You know what? That happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.'”
