Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey is expected to air this Sunday.

He added, “You know, I’m just very relieved and happy to sit here and talk to you, with my wife by my side.
“Because I can’t imagine what it must have been like for her [Diana]to go through this process alone. All those years ago.
“Because it was incredibly difficult for both of us, but at least we had each other.”
Meghan then said, “Yes.”
