Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sat down with Oprah Winfrey for an interview on CBS Sunday.  Meghan opened up to Oprah about how the constant criticism and harassment from the British tabloids lead to Meghan having suicidal thoughts.  However, when she reached out for help she did not receive it.

The couple said that the toll on their mental health and ultimately forced them to step away from royal life.

Here are some of the shocking revelations during Sunday’s two-hour CBS special:

  • Meghan Markle had suicidal thoughts while five-months pregnant. When she asked for help, “The Firm” would not allow her to seek treatment because it would reflect poorly on the Royals.

  • The Royals “silenced” Meghan, who followed instructions because she was told they would “protect” her. They did not. The betrayal was evident shortly after the wedding. British tabloids reported Meghan made Kate Middleton cry. Meghan said the exact opposite was true.

  • An unnamed family member expressed their racist concern to Harry that his son, Archie, might be born with “dark skin.”

  • Prince Harry admitted things are strained with PRINCE CHARLES, and there’s, quote, “a lot to work through.”  He also said he felt “really let down” by him.  And Harry’s relationship with his brother PRINCE WILLIAM is, quote, “space, at the moment.”

  • Harry and Meghan eloped, with the assistance of the Archbishop of Canterbury, three days before their worldwide televised wedding at St. George’s Chapel on Windsor Castle.

  • Royal Family staff holds many personal possessions, including keys, driver’s license and passport.

  • Prince Harry is wealthy from the estate of Princess Diana. At a very young age, he was left around $20 million.

  • Leaving for the United States meant that Harry lost the privilege of personal security provided by the Royals. Tyler Perry offered his home and bodyguards to Harry.

  • Meghan revealed to Oprah that she is pregnant with a girl. Harry said, “We’ve got our family, the four of us and our two dogs.” No more kids — “Two is it.”
