Speaking to Oprah, who lives near the couple's new LA home, Harry also shared his "relief" at being able to speak out about the struggles and have Meghan by his side, adding that his mother, Princess Diana, faced a similar turmoil with nobody to support her.

"I'm just really relieved and happy to be sitting here talking to you with my wife by my side.

"Because I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like for her going through this process by herself all those years ago, because it's been unbelievably tough for the two of us. But at least we have each other."

Prince Harry, who is due to welcome a second child with Meghan this year, also shared his fears that Meghan would suffer the same heartbreaking fate as his mother.

"My biggest concern was history repeating itself," he can be heard saying in the second clip.

Meanwhile the footage shows Oprah saying, "You said some pretty shocking things here."

She also goes on to question Harry and Meghan over why they dubbed their battle "almost unsurvivable", asking "sounds like there was a breaking point?".
