The Duke of Sussex made the comments about the bombshell interview – which plunged the royals into crisis – in his and Winfrey’s new Apple TV+ documentary series The Me You Can’t See. Harry said: “I like to think we were able to speak truth (in the interview) in the most compassionate way possible, therefore leaving an opening for reconciliation and healing.”

The Duke also insisted he and Meghan’s decision to give the tell-all interview was driven by “being real, being authentic”.

And he accused both the press and the Royal Family of working together to smear former actress Meghan before the programme aired in March.

Harry revealed he woke up in the middle of the night to find his wife “crying into her pillow”.

He said: “The interview was about being real, being authentic and hopefully sharing an experience that we know is incredibly relatable to a lot of people around the world, despite our unique, privileged position.

“Before the Oprah interview had aired, because of the headlines and the combined efforts of the firm and the media to smear (Meghan) I was woken up in the middle of the night to her crying into her pillow.”

Harry added that Meghan had not wanted to wake him because he was “already carrying too much”.

He said: “That’s heartbreaking. I held her, we talked, she cried, she cried and she cried.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a set of damaging claims about the Royal Family in their TV interview which came in the wake of Megxit.

On his move to the US, Harry insisted he had “no regrets”.

He said: “Making this move was really scary, at every possible opportunity the forces that were working against us tried to make it impossible.

“I have no regrets.

“It is incredibly sad but now I have no regrets at all because now I’m in a place where I feel I should have been four years ago.”

Harry also said he had “no doubt” Princess Diana would have been very proud of him.

He said: “I’m living the life that she wanted to live for herself, living the life that she wanted us to be able to live.

“So not only do I know that she’s incredibly proud of me, but that she’s helped me get here.”

He added: “I’ve never felt her presence more than I have done over the last year.”

The Sussexes quit royal duties for a new life in America in March 2020.

They have since bought an £11million mansion in California and struck lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify.
