Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s explosive interview special with Oprah aired on Sunday, March 7, and it did not disappoint. Following a handful of teaser clips that promised major revelations, we learned shocking details about the couple's departure from the royal family–including allegations of racism perpetuated by Buckingham Palace, a refusal to acknowledge Meghan's mental health struggles, and the royal family turning a blind eye to the couple's harassment by the British press.
Yesterday, CBS this Morning released a series of never-before-seen clips from the special, which dive even deeper into the racism and marginalization that the Sussexes experienced. The Palace has yet to respond to the allegations.

For some background, not everyone was thrilled about the tell-all primetime event. The British press–known for their exploitation and downright harassment of the couple–appeared to be preemptively launching a campaign to discredit whatever revelations may emerge from the interview. Last week, just days before the premiere of the special, a new report from the Times of London (a-well respected publication) alleged that Meghan faced a bullying complaint from an assistant.
The couple responded by openly blaming Buckingham Palace for the article. The Sussexes said in a statement, “Let’s just call this what it is — a calculated smear campaign based on misleading and harmful misinformation. We are disappointed to see this defamatory portrayal of The Duchess of Sussex given credibility by a media outlet. It’s no coincidence that distorted several-year-old accusations aimed at undermining The Duchess are being briefed to the British media shortly before she and The Duke are due to speak openly and honestly about their experience of recent years."
They added: "The Duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma. She is determined to continue her work building compassion around the world and will keep striving to set an example for doing what is right and doing what is good."
