CBS’ This Morning exclusively released a series of clip from Oprah Winfrey’s interview with the Sussexes that was not included in the final cut first aired overnight in the US and to be shown this evening on ITV. In one of these clips, Prince Harry and Meghan said the Duchess has experienced a level of abuse unprecedented within the Royal Family.  

Asked by Oprah what made the abuse she has received different from the one experienced by other royals, Meghan mentioned her race, her nationality and social media. 

Speaking about it, she drew a comparison with the attacks received by Kate during her years as a girlfriend of Prince William and immediately after their nuptials. 

Meghan said: “I think the volume of what was coming in and the interest was greater because of social media, because of the fact that I was not British, and unfortunately if members of his [Prince Harry] family say, ‘Well this is what happened to all of us’, you know…

“If they can compare what the experience that I went through were similar to what has been shared with us Kate was called Waity Katie, waiting to marry William, while I imagine that was really hard and I do… I can’t imagine what that felt like… this is not the same. 

“And if a member of his family will comfortably say, ‘We’ve all had to deal with things that are rude… rude and racist are not the same.

“And equally you have also had a press team that goes on the record to defend you, especially when they know something is not true – that didn’t happen for us.”  

Oprah then turned to Prince Harry, recalling he had previously said he was “hurt” by the fact that the Royal Family did not acknowledge Meghan’s abuse was different because of race. 

She asked him: “Do you think there ever will be, and would that make a difference to you?”  

The Duke of Sussex replied: “It would make a huge difference. There is a lot of people that has seen it for what it was. 

“It’s talked about across the world. Yet the very people that don’t want to see it or can’t see it choose not to see it.”
