Some support them, other call them attention seekers, but no matter how you feel about them, chances are you do have an opinion about everything that is going on with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
During their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Sussex Royals revealed many shocking details that preceded and followed their stepping down from the royal duties.

U.K. media, as well as many influential international magazines, have slammed their decision to split from the royal family, but both Harry and Meghan believed it was the best thing to do when it came to their family. During the recent interview that caused a stir on the social media, Harry once again defended their decision to move from Britain because he didn’t want “history repeating itself,” referring to his late mother.
At the time of making and announcing their decision to leave the royal life behind, the Queen released a statement which read: “Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family.”
“My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family,” she continued. “Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.”

During the past period, Harry and Meghan didn’t speak of their private life much, neither they tried justifying any of their decisions, but once they confirmed in February of this year that they are not getting back to their royal duties, they felt free to give an interview.
Among the rest, Meghan said how she and Harry married three days prior to their royal wedding which was broadcasted and watched by millions of people.
“You know, three days before our wedding, we got married,” Markle told Oprah. “No one knows that. But we called the archbishop, and we just said, ‘Look, this spectacle is for the world, but we want our union between us.’”
“The vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our backyard with the archbishop of Canterbury.”
Harry commented on his wife’s revelation, saying: “Just the three of us.”
Oprah: “Any regrets?”
Prince Harry: “No. I mean, no, I think we’ve done– I’m really proud of us, you know?”
Meghan: “I have one. My regret is believing them when they said I would be protected. I believed that.” pic.twitter.com/Cxlxx9F2O2

Many accused the couple of lying, as according to the law, there have to be witnesses for the marriage to take place. But as it turns out, they didn’t really get married prior to the ceremony the world witnessed, they only exchanged their vows. That is the best explanation the public came to after the interview.
Among the rest, the couple revealed how there were conversations at the Palace about how dark the skin of their baby would be, thus “bringing out” the question about racism in the Royal family.
