Meghan suggested that at least one person in the palace expressed concern about the skin color of her first child Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Markle did not name that person, only saying; "There were also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he was born." After shocking the media, prominent British TV figures such as ITV editor Chris Ship, took to Twitter to show dismay towards the information, citing "This is very strong and the Palace will face serious questions."

The Duchess of Sussex went on to describe her struggle with suicidal thoughts. "I just didn't want to be alive anymore," Markle told Oprah during the interview. "I thought it would solve everything for everyone." The troubled royal said that she went to the human resources department of the palace in order to get help. Instead, she revealed that she was turned down and told that she wasn't an employee and couldn't be helped. Prince Harry then explained that after his late mother went through the same thing, he was shocked to hear it from his wife too.

After months of hype around the highly anticipated interview, viewers were shocked to learn that the couple was no longer being supported by the Firm. "The royal family has literally cut me off financially," Harry told Oprah. However, it won't be much of a setback, nor a major problem, as the prince inherited millions from his mother and Meghan has her own money from her Hollywood acting career. It is still a shadowing act, especially considering other royals are able to collect the riches that the Duke's father, Prince Charles, pulls in from the Duchy of Cornwall. Harry even stated that the couple would not have had enough to relocate to California without his inheritance.
