Meghan and Harry made a number of startling admissions in the two-hour prime-time interview that aired Sunday night on CBS.

The pair alleged that members of the royal family had "concerns and conversations about how dark his [their son Archie's] skin might be".

Oprah was left visibly stunned, and while Meghan said concerns were relayed to Harry, they declined to name the family member because of how "damaging" the claim is.

Meghan said there have been several conversations with "family" on the topic.

The pair were asked by Oprah if these were "about how dark your baby is going to be?"

Meghan responded: "Potentially, and what that would mean or look like."

"They were concerned that if he were too brown, that that would be a problem?" Oprah asked.

"I wasn't able to follow up with why," said Meghan, "but if that's the assumption you're making, I think that feels like a pretty safe one."

Meghan also revealed that she'd battled with suicidal thoughts.

She said that at some points after her marriage she "just didn't want to be alive anymore".

Meghan added that when she expressed her feelings to "the institution," she was told that she could not seek help for her mental health issues.

"That was a very clear and real and frightening constant thought," she said. "And I remember how [Harry] just cradled me.

"I went to the institution, and I said that I needed to go somewhere to get help. I said that I've never felt this way before and I need to go somewhere. And I was told that I couldn't, that it wouldn't be good for the institution."

This wasn't enough for Piers Morgan, who said he didn't believe the Duchess of Sussex.

Morgan asked co-host Susanna Reid: "Do you feel genuine sympathy with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry after watching that load of bilge?"
