Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey has been nominated for an Emmy.

The 36 year old and his 39 year old wife sent shockwaves around the world in March when they sat down with chat show legend Oprah, 67, to discuss their lives as part of the Royal family.

Their groundbreaking interview has now been nominated for the prestigious gong in the Outstanding Hosted Notification Series or Special category.

Oprah with Harry and Meghan: A CBS Primetime Special is nominated against the likes of Netflix's My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, CNN's Stanley Tucci: Searching For Italy and United Shades of America with Kamau Bell, and Showtime's Vice.

Brits are expected to do very well at the awards ceremony, which will take place in September, with The Crown scoring 11 nominations, I May Destroy You being nominated for six awards, and Bridgerton fighting for three.

It was during their interview with Oprah that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex claimed a member of the Royal Family had "concerns" over how dark the colour of their son Archie's skin would be.


Meghan said she had suicidal thoughts while being an active senior member of the family but was denied help when she asked for it.

She also claimed Prince William's wife Kate Middleton made her cry days before her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018, but "owned it" and apologised.

Another claim Meghan made involved her marriage to Harry, as she told Oprah they were married in a secret ceremony in their garden three days before the televised "spectacle" at Windsor.

Meghan told her: "You know, three days before our wedding, we got married. No one knows that.

"We called the Archbishop and we just said, 'Look, this thing, this spectacle is for the world but we want our union between us'.

"So, like, the vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury."

However, the Archbishop of Canterbury has since spoken out to deny these claims, explaining that the legal wedding took place on 19 May 2018.

Despite being celebrated by critics and being nominated for the award, the documentary received over 5,000 Ofcom complaints in the first month after its airing.
