- It followed the couple’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey last year
Harry was filmed with Meghan at the moment he received a text message from his brother William amid the fall-out from the couple’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The Harry & Meghan documentary shows the duchess sitting with a laptop going through the statement the Queen issued in response to the Sussexes’ claims that a member of the Royal Family asked about how dark the couple’s son’s skin would be.
She reads aloud the statement, released by Buckingham Palace, which said: ‘The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.
‘The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.’ Then Harry shows Meghan the screen of his phone, prompting her to say: ‘Wow, H just got a text from his brother!’

The message is not shown, but it appears to have a dramatic impact on the prince, who grimaces and clasps his hands behind his head, muttering: ‘I wish I knew what to do.’
Meghan responds: ‘I know. Let’s take a breather. Get some air and then decide.’ The pair were filmed as they embraced and then stood holding each other in silence.

Yesterday’s episodes saw Harry fire several other potshots at his relatives, including an incendiary claim that William left him ‘terrified’ during a meeting to discuss Megxit.
The Duke of Sussex alleged his older brother, now heir to the throne, left him ‘terrified’ during the January 2020 Sandringham Summit while he ‘screamed and shouted’ at him in front of his father and grandmother as he tried to thrash out a deal to leave the UK.
Harry also accused Charles of telling untruths to his face and Her Majesty of saying nothing at the now infamous ‘Sandringham Summit’, and told of the ‘heartbreaking’ rift with his brother.
He said: ‘It was terrifying to have my brother scream and shout at me and my father say things that just simply weren’t true. And my grandmother, you know, quietly sit there and take it all in’.

However, despite making the sensational allegations against his brother and father, Harry failed to reveal what actually went on during those conversations, leading to further questions about his claims.
Instead, Harry simply said that he was offered ‘five options’ during the meeting – although he went on to claim that there was actually ‘no discussion or debate’ about the final outcome.
‘I went in with the same proposal that we’d already made publicly, but once I got there I was given five options – one being all in, no change, five being all out,’ he said.
‘I chose option three in the meeting – half in, half out. Have our own jobs but also work in support of the Queen. It became very clear very quickly that goal was not up for discussion or debate.’
