And viewers watched on in shock as some mind-blowing allegations were made against the monarchy.

For example...

It was claimed that senior members of the family had refused to get Meghan professional help when she was experiencing suicidal thoughts during her pregnancy with Archie.

Meghan also addressed that incident with her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.

Headlines were made in 2018 when Meghan allegedly "made Kate cry" in a row about bridesmaids' dresses in the days before her and Harry's wedding - well, in her chat with Oprah, Meghan claimed that Kate was the one to make her cry.

Though she did stress that Kate had apologized and that she had "forgiven her."

She also addressed the ongoing issues of racism within the monarchy.

Meghan claimed an unnamed senior member of the Royal family raised "concerns" about how dark Archie's skin would be before his birth.

"In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, so we have in tandem the conversation of, 'you won't be given security, not gonna be given a title' and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born."

But Meghan wasn't the only one to spill the royal tea.

Prince Harry himself spoke candidly about his current relationship with his family and how he has been "financially cut off," which initially left him fearing for the future.

Harry explained that he "had to get out," though when he did he was "cut off financially" when he and Meghan needed help the most...

He also added that they've since been relying on his inheritance from Princess Diana.

"I was totally cut off financially. My family cut me off – if I didn't have what my mom left me, we wouldn't have been able to do this."

"All I wanted to do was keep my family safe."

Meghan then insisted that they never had any plans at first to quit the U.K - she said the intention was to "do this forever" and that she told the royal family to "use me as much as you like."

Later in the interview, Oprah asked how the prince thinks the late Princess Diana would have felt about the rifts that drove them to step back from the royal family.

"I think she would feel very angry with how this has panned out, and very sad," Harry said, "But ultimately, all she'd ever want is for us to be happy."

Quite predictably, opinion has been well and truly divided over the interview...

With a vast majority feeling sympathetic for Harry and Meghan over what they've allegedly endured in the last few years.

But on the other hand...

People have been slamming the pair for agreeing to take part in Oprah's interview and have even been brandishing them as "liars"... including Piers Morgan, of course!

The backlash has been vicious, to say the least...

And the fallout among the British public in particular has been diabolical.

But there's one member of the public who will very much benefit from the interview...

A Prince Harry impersonator.

Harry Poulson, a Prince Harry impersonator, claims the interview with help attract more work for him.

But other's aren't too sure...

Harry, who's from Cornwall, UK, works as a boat builder but when he's not doing that, he's a Prince Harry impersonator.

After all, they even share the name.

Working at opening nights, club appearances, and as a film extra, Harry has earned almost Β£5,000 ($6,928) since the royal wedding in 2018.

He even has people stop him in the street to ask for selfies due to the resemblance.

Harry first noticed the resemblance aged twenty-one when colleagues pointed it out and a local newspaper stirred up excitement by publishing a photo of "Prince Harry" at a local beach.

As per The Mirror, he said: "I have people approaching me in the street when I'm in town, they'll do a double take, and they say how much I look like Prince Harry.

"I've done a few staged interviews in front of Buckingham Palace, a few openings and I've worked as an extra on films who needed a Prince Harry lookalike and I've always got a good reaction. When I worked in a local pub, people would write on social media that they had either been served by Prince Harry or they'd seen him getting absolutely drunk at the other side of the bar."

Since the pair moved to the US last year, the impersonation business has gone quiet for Harry.

But now, he hopes the interview with Oprah will spark interest again.

"The work has quietened down since they moved to LA and I haven't done a job since September which could be because they are in the spotlight for a different reason," he explained.

"Luckily, it isn't my main job, it was just ad hoc work and I've been able to keep working through lockdown as a carpenter. Thankfully, no one I know has changed their opinion of him since he moved and he's still well liked."

"The work should start coming back in now because the level of work usually depends on how much they're in the spotlight whether it's positive or negative and they've been in the spotlight massively recently so I think there'll be a fair amount of interest," he continued.

"Being a Prince Harry impersonator has always been a good laugh as far as jobs go so I'm looking forward to getting back into it."
