Start from the bottom and keep refreshing to see the latest details
Australian breakfast shows have been talking about this interview all morning, as have news programs around the world..
I’m very intrigued to see what revelations will be aired.
Bidding for the interview has been intense with Australia’s Channel 10 reportedly paying $400,000 to secure the special.
CBS is said to have paid over US$7 million for the exclusive.
Credits are rolling over final comments. Oprah says there are more exclusive moments on CBS THIS MORNING tomorrow.
Oprah says to Meghan that her life with the Prince does have a happy ending.
Meghan says she regrets believing them when they (the firm) told her she would be protected
Oprah presses Harry about the relationship with Williams. Harry says it’s space and time heals all things.
Says he has no regrets and that he is proud of Meghan.
Harry says having outdoor space with Archie is something that brings him delight now.
Harry says he is hurt by the fact they are removing all titles and roles, but he respects his grandmother.
Another break before we wrap everything up.
CBS must be making a fortune with ads… wonder if they can cover the $7m investment
Meghan and Harry say they would still be in the Royal family if they had been supported
Oprah asks about the race issue with Archie and Harry says he will not talk about that or reveal what was discussed. Just says he was shocked.
Harry doesn’t really open up about William, just says they are on different paths.
Harry says he will make it one of his priorities to heal his relationship with his father.
Harry says he still has a good relationship with the Queen but there are obviously still issues with his dad… but Charles is taking his calls now
Netflix and Spotify were never part of the plan. That was suggested by friends after the family cut Harry and Meghan off, says Harry.
Basically, he’s saying they needed money and he would have struggled without Diana’s inheritance.
We’re off to another break. The colour issue with Archie is next as Harry is asked about those conversations.
Harry says Diana would feel very angry at how this has panned out.
Harry admits he would not have stepped back from Royal duties if it had not been for Meghan. Says he was trapped but didn’t know he was trapped within the system.
Oprah says reports and social media blame Meghan for them leaving the Royals.
She says that makes no sense. She gave up everything because of her love of him.
She received no guidance on how to speak or be a royal.
Harry speaking very fondly about the Queen and her reaction to Meghan.
Says things with the family started turning after the Australian tour.
Harry and Meghan say they’ve watched some of ‘The Crown’.
Harry hints there was some jealousy at the positive reception Meghan received on tour.
Harry says the press control the royals through fear.
Harry says members of parliament signed a letter supporting Meghan but the Royal Family didn’t.
He says family is scared of the press turning on the institution.
The family have a mentality “this is just the way it is:, says Harry.
Harry says he didn’t know what to do when Meghan admitted she wanted to take her own life.
He says it’s not a conversation to have with the Royals. And he was ashamed to admit Meghan needed help.
Having been in a situation where people wanted me to shut my mouth so they could sprout their own narrative, I can see a truth coming from Meghan. There’s nothing worse than lies being in the public domain and people believing those lies.
Harry says Prince Charles has stopped taking his calls.
Harry says they left due to a lack of support and lack of understanding. He blames the press and the firm.
Says he did not blind-side the Queen. He has too much respect for her.
Harry says the UK press were blatant with their racism towards Meghan.

The issue of race never occurred to Harry. But he understood there would be interest in his girlfriend.
Harry’s biggest concern was about history repeating itself. He makes it clear he is talking about his mother and says the race issue played a part.
Harry says he went to all the places he thought he should go to ask for help, but couldn’t get it.
They didn’t choose to leave, they just didn’t want to be senior members of the Royal family.
Meghan makes it clear they never quit or walked away.
They stayed at Tyler Perry’s place because they didn’t have a plan.
Harry was told at short notice security was being pulled and because it had been printed where they were, it wasn’t a safe place for them in Canada.
PRINCE HARRY shared the news about the sex of the baby and they genuinely look thrilled.
Harry and Meghan say two is it, there will be no more babies
IT’S A GIRL!
Prince Harry is up next…
Is Meghan afraid of a backlash?
“I’m not going to live my life in fear.”
“I don’t know how they could expect that after all this time we would still be silent if there is an active role that the firm is playing in perpetuating lies they are telling about us.”
“There’s a lot that’s been lost already. I lost my father I lost my baby… but I’m still standing”
Chatting about her dark place is very powerful. Will the critics give her a break or go in harder? This is a defining moment for Meghan and Harry in my opinion. She has opened up and we talk so much about mental health these days, so reaction to this revelation will be very interesting
She talks about how they were just trying to do their job and Harry was holding her hand so tight. When the lights were down they could take a moment but then had to put on a face.
Meghan wanted to go to a hospital but they wouldn’t allow it. “You can’t just call an uber”
Points out her passport, drivers licence and all other documents are turned over.
She is very clear on the fact she was suicidal. She thought that would fix everyone’s problems.
Oprah asks about possible mental trouble.
“I just didn’t see a solution. I would sit up at night and I just don’t understand how all of this is being churned out,
I was ashamed to say it at the time, and I was ashamed to say it to Harry
“I just didn’t want to be alive any more.”
Meghan says the institution wouldn’t help her because it wouldn’t be a good look
Have to say I didn’t expect the bombs to really be thrown, but it is obvious Meghan has had enough crap. She still has a line though and isn;t crossing it but seems determined to set the record straight.
She’s likeable, forthright but I imagine she is upsetting a lot of people with this interview.
Off to the break and Oprah talks about Meghan’s breaking point.
Meghan is asked whether it was Archie’s race as to why they didn’t want him to be a Prince.
“(there were) conversations on how dark his skin would be”
Meghan apprehensive answering Oprah’s question on who is having this conversation with her and Harry.
Meghan says it would be very damaging if she revealed who had that conversation with Harry.
Meghan agrees with Oprah that it sounds like Archie being brown would be an issue.
Prince Harry and Meghan never made the decision not to have Archie be a Prince, but that wasn’t the public narrative.
Claims they wouldn’t take a baby picture were false and they were never asked to take a picture.
Meghan says she was asking for help for a long time. When pressed, she admits says they “would go on the record and negate the most ridiculous story for anyone, but the narrative about making Kate cry was the beginning of a character assassination”.
Re Archie: They didn’t want him to be a Prince or a Princess and he wasn’t going to receive security.
(Teaser promo to the break was misleading, Oprah reacting to something very different)
There was no explanation on why the firm wouldn’t protect Archie and didn’t want him to have a royal title.
Meghan talks about how here baby was the first Royal member of colour and not being protected. They were changing the convention for Archie. They never answered why
I can see why they had to extend this to 2 hours – there are commercials every 10 mins
Meghan says there was concern about how dark Archie’s skin would be when he was born as we go to another break
Meghan talks about the fact she was accused of being everywhere but she hadn’t actually left the house for four months
“My understanding of the past four years is nothing was as it looks like”
Meghan says the Queen has always been wonderful to her. On first engagement together the Queen gave her pearl earrings.
Queen shared her blanket with Meghan as they were riding together
“Not only did they not protect me, but they were willing to lie to protect other members of the family”
Meghan says she did whatever the Palace said to do and stayed silent because they promised to protect her
“I’VE ADVOCATED FOR SO LONG FOR WOMEN TO USE THEIR VOICE, BUT I WAS SILENT”
First thoughts: Meghan is ready to go to war.
She’s not afraid to throw others under the bus to change the narrative. This, to me, will lead to the finals split between her and the Royal family. Any friends she still has within ‘The Firm’ won’t want anything to do with her now.
Oprah presses Meghan on the difference in coverage of Kate and Meghan. As we go to break it looks like it is going to be blamed on race.
Meghan says Kate apologised for making her cry and doesn’t want to get into the details… after saying it was about bridesmaids dresses.
Meghan says she hopes Kate would have wanted that corrected.
Meghan says when the press accused her of making Kate cry was when the narrative changed. When pressed by Oprah she throws Kate under the bus and claims she made Meghan cry
Oprah is having a tour of the property. We’re seeing chickens. A cynic would say this is to show how down-to-earth they are…. but the property looks like it is huge.
Meghan reveals she and Harry actually got married before the official ceremony
We’re off to a break with Oprah asking “Were you silent or were you silenced?”
5 min into the #OprahMeghanHarry it’s clear that Meghan does not care for traditions.

Oprah asks about meeting the Queen.
Meghan says it wasn’t formal.
Queen was finishing a church service and decided to come and meet Meghan. Harry asked if she knew how to curtsey. Meghan didn’t realise you also had to do that in private. That’s when she started to understand the difference.
Fergie also helped Meghan learn how to do it in 5 minutes.
Lovely chat with the Queen says Meghan
“There was no way to understand what the day-to-day was going to be like” – Meghan
Meghan says she was naive going into the Royal family and she didn’t do any research.
“I never looked my husband up online”
Oprah tells audience nothing is off limits.
