The TV event, which aired in the US on CBS on Sunday (7 March), saw the couple give their first sit-down interview since stepping back as senior members of the royal family.
During the interview, they spoke at length about their struggles with mental health, racism and their relationship with the palace.
In a series of stunning revelations, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex accused the palace of fostering an atmosphere of hostility that reached a point where Markle contemplated taking her own life. “I was ashamed to say it at the time... I just didn’t want to be alive any more. And that was a very real and clear and frightening and constant thought,” she shared.
Markle also claimed that a member of the royal family relayed concerns regarding “how dark” the skin of their son Archie would be when he is born.
Prince Harry spoke about how he felt really “let down” by Prince Charles as he longed for the public support of his family, particularly during a time when his wife faced scrutiny from the British tabloids.
In a lighthearted moment, the couple revealed that they are due to welcome a baby girl sometime later in the summer.
Reacting to the programme, Bring it On star Union tweeted: “The tabloids are HOSTED by the palace?!?!?!?!?! WHEW.”
She also retweeted messages of support to Markle and tweets comparing Markle’s treatment by the press to that of the late Princess Diana.
Jada Pinkett Smith, meanwhile, joked that the Queen would be the next guest on her show Red Table Talk.
Some stars also called out Piers Morgan for his “hateful” criticism of the couple on Good Morning Britain.
The interview will air on ITV on Monday night (8 March) in the UK. For all the information on how to watch it and what to expect, visit this page.
