Meghan alleged in the interview that she never made Kate Middleton cry, and that it was in fact Kate who made Meghan cry, later sending flowers and an apology.
The mom of one, who is expecting her second child with Harry, also alleged she suffered racism at the hands of the monarchy, and that at one point she considered death by suicide as her mental health deterioated.
Meghan spoke about her mental health concerns
She said: "It was a very real and frightening constant thought.
"I remember that [Harry] just cradled me, and I went to the institution and I said I needed to go somewhere and get help, and I was told that I couldn't, because it wouldn't be good for the institution."
Meghan and Harry both praised the Queen
Harry also claimed that he was cut off from his money, and that his father, Prince Charles, stopped taking his calls at one point.
