There's a lot of hurt that's happened. I will continue to make it one of my priorities to heal that relationship."As for him and Prince William, their "relationship is space at the moment."  "As I said before, I love William to bits. We've been through hell together and we have a shared experience but we are on different paths," he said. "Time heals all things, hopefully."Meghan and Harry are expecting a baby girl! On a happier note, the couple revealed that their second child is due this summer. "It's amazing," Harry said. After their daughter is born, Harry and Meghan are finished having children.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got the opportunity to speak their truth when they sat down with Oprah Winfrey for their first joint interview since their royal exit back in March 2021. We knew the tell-all would be explosive, but Markle and Harry truly held nothing back. Given the outrageous amount of scrutiny and blatant racism Markle has faced since she first got together with Harry in 2016, the moment was long overdue.

Harry and Markle's Netflix docuseries, which premiered its final episodes on 15 Dec., revisits the bombshell interview that the latter says they watched in real time with the rest of the world. "I thought that me being very open about the depression that I experienced and just how extreme that became, I thought that would be the biggest takeaway," Markle shares in the series. "But it was entirely eclipsed by the conversation surrounding race."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed in February 2021 that they would not be returning as senior members of the British royal family following their 12-month trial period. As a result, Queen Elizabeth II — who died at age 96 on 8 Sept. — stripped them of their honorary military appointments and royal patronages; however, they still hold their titles (at least for now, anyway). Since then, the tabloids have remained hellbent on tarnishing Markle's name.
