Harry and Meghan's Interview Has Been Nominated for an Emmy | 22 Words

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey has been nominated for an Emmy Award.

It was confirmed today that Oprah with Meghan & Harry: A CBS Primetime Special has been nominated in the Outstanding Hosted Nonfiction Series Or Special category.

The winners will be announced on September 19th at the Primetime Emmy Awards, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex up against Stanley Tucci: Searching For Italy and David Letterman's My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.

During their explosive interview, Harry and Meghan accused the Royal Family of racism, suggesting an unnamed relative had asked "how dark" their son would be, and also accused the Palace of failing to support Meghan while she was struggling with suicidal thoughts.

Harry even revealed tensions between him and his father, Prince Charles, saying his family had cut him off financially. After this, Meghan accused Kate Middleton of making her cry and said officials had failed to stand up for them against "racist" attacks while being prepared to lie for others.

The Emmy nomination comes after Robert Lacey, the royal historian, claimed Prince Harry will admit he's made mistakes due to "sheer temper," but Meghan is "sticking to her guns."

The claims emerged in Lacey's book, Battle of Brothers, which was published before Harry and Meghan spoke with Oprah and opened up about all the trauma they allegedly experienced during the years they were part of the royal family.

Speaking to Newsweek, Lacey said he believes that Harry will be the only member to admit his mistakes and reasons for his actions after leaving his role along with Meghan, but that William and Kate will not reciprocate this as they may feel "vindicated" for their thoughts on Harry's relationship with Meghan and his place in the royal family.

He said: "On one side we've got William who doesn't seem prepared to concede anything and on the other side friends have told me that Harry wouldn't mind reconciling and then it's Meghan who is sticking to her guns on this issue.

"It should surely be possible for both sides to say the past is in the past. It's very regrettable that Meghan doesn't withdraw just a little. Why can't she say it was the pressure? 'I was getting used to this incredibly complicated system, I was just pregnant, I couldn't sleep. Perhaps in retrospect, I went over the top about it.'"

In the Oprah interview, Harry opened up about his feelings towards William after reports had surfaced that there was increased tension between the pair following Megxit.

He told the talk show host: "As I've said before, I love William to bits. He's my brother. We've been through hell together. I mean, we have a shared experience. But we're on different paths."

Who knows when Harry will reconcile with his estranged family in London! But let's hope he'll be able to make peace with them soon.
