In the episode, our favourite families tuned in to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired on ITV on Monday night. 

While Lee dubbed the programme the "interview of the century" before they began watching, it seems that the families were not prepared for just how shocking the interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be.

There were all-round gasps of disbelief as the Duchess opened up about her mental health struggle and how she was told her son Archie would not be offered security nor be given a royal title.

However, one moment that truly had the Gogglebox lot shocked was when she revealed that she never looked up her husband online or did any research into the royal family before dating Harry.

"Even if your partner isn't famous, you stalk the [expletive] out of their social media," Izzi said, with sister Ellie adding: "And Google and whatever else."

Bassit echoed her comments, asking dad Sid and brother Umar: "You'd do your Facebook stalking any potential partner, wouldn't you?"

They also sympathised with Harry as he joined the interview in its second hour and admitted he felt "let down" by his father, Prince Charles. "That's a sore subject for him," Marcus said, while girlfriend Mica quipped: "Sometimes you've got to leave the WhatsApp group babes."

Her comment resonated with fans of the show who took to Twitter to hail it the "best one-liner" of the series so far. "So wise," one viewer tweeted. Another said: "Love Mica from Gogglebox on #HarryandMeghan quitting the royal family," while a third fan said: "LOVE IT!"
