The highly anticipated tell-all interview with Meghan and Harry is nearly here, and some of the interview clips are highly sensitive and heartbreaking to hear.

Since this has just aired in the US, there has been some update about the topics they have covered. 

One causing a lot of outrage was the royal family talking about and being 'concerned' about the colour of their child Archie's skin. She tells Oprah,

"conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born." She added, "That was relayed to me from Harry — that was a conversation family members had with him,"

They also have a very open conversation about her deteriorating mental health and thoughts of suicide whilst pregnant,

I didn't want to live anymore.

She goes on to say, 

"I just didn't see a solution. I would sit up at night, and I was just like, 'I don't understand how all of this is being churned out' — and again I wasn't seeing it — but it's almost worse when you feel it through the expression of my mom or my friends or them calling me crying like, 'Meg, they're not protecting you.' 

The New Zealand exclusive, Oprah With Meghan And Harry, will be airing this Tuesday 7.30pm on Three. The two-hour special will also be available to watch on ThreeNow.
