Sunday night marked Oprah Winfrey’s highly-anticipated tell-all interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, with the former Royal couple diving into all the reasons they left the monarchy and the U.K., including the racist treatment Markle faced at the hand of the Royal family.
Things got so bad that while the Duchess was pregnant, there was talk over the “concern” of how “dark” the baby’s skin would be, and that he wouldn’t be given a title or the security that comes with it. The former Suits actress revealed that combined with the harassment from British media, there was a point where she “just didn’t want to be alive anymore.” The Duchess’s repeated requests for mental health support were denied by Buckingham palace since it wouldn’t be a good look for them.
CBS reportedly paid between $7 and $9 million for the exclusive two-hour interview which aired Sunday night. But if you missed it, there’s now a way for cord cutters to watch it online.
Despite it being CBS-licensed content, the interview isn’t available on CBS’ new streamer Paramount+. The good news is you can watch Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex’s interview which is available to stream for free at CBS.com and on the CBS app.
