In March 2021, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sent shockwaves around the world after appearing in a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey. The chat saw the couple make a series of explosive claims about the monarchy. According to Princess Diana’s former protection officer Ken Wharfe, Harry found the Oprah interview “difficult” to appear in. Mr Wharfe explained Harry’s “telling” feelings during the bombshell interview.
He noted that, during that time, Charles had a “much bigger operation” and a “lot of support”, whereas “Diana didn’t have that”.
Because of this, he added: “She decided, well look, I’m not getting that support, I want to tell you the truth, and that’s what happened with [Andrew] Morton, and that’s what happened with [Martin] Bashir.”
During the Oprah interview, the Sussexes accused an unnamed royal – not the Queen or Prince Philip – of making a racist comment about their son Archie.
And following previous reports it was the other way around, Meghan claimed Kate made her cry ahead of her royal wedding in 2018.

During the two-hour-long interview, the Duchess also shared that she had suffered with her mental health during her time in The Firm.
She revealed that she had experienced “suicidal thoughts” and alleged that she was denied help during her private struggle.
Prince Harry also laid bare his rifts with his older brother Prince William and father Prince Charles.
