After tuning into Oprah Winfrey‘s highly anticipated interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Twitter has a lot to say in response to the several bombshells that were dropped during the two-hour special.
Many pledged their support for the couple after Meghan revealed her mental health struggles while working as a senior member of the royal family.
Others expressed shock and disgust when Meghan shared that certain royals were concerned with “how dark” Archie’s skin would be. “In those months, when I was pregnant, all around this same time, we had in tandem the conversation of he won’t be given security, he won’t be given a title … and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin will be when he’s born,” Meghan shared with Oprah. “That was relayed to me from Harry, that was from conversations that family had with him. It was really hard to see those as compartmentalised conversations.”

Many marvelled at (and were reminded of) Oprah’s impressing interviewing skills.
Although the two dropped harrowing accounts of their experience within the monarchy since the wedding in 2018, the Sussexes also shared some brights spots from a dark time.
Meghan revealed that she and Harry had a secret, intimate ceremony days before their televised wedding, for instance. “Three days before our wedding, we got married. No one knows that, but we called the archbishop and we said this thing, this spectacle, this is for the world,” she said. “But we wanted our union between us. The vows we have, they’re framed in our room, are just the two us in our backyard with Archbishop Canterbury and that was it … it was just the three of us.”
