A day after Oprah Winfrey's explosive tell-all interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the talk show host divulged several more revelations, including the issue on the Royal Family's concern about the couple's baby's skin color and Prince Harry's relationship with his father.

In an interview today with CBS This Morning, Winfrey cleared that it was not Queen Elizabeth nor Prince Philip that were a part of the conversations about how dark the Duke and Duchess' baby's skin color would be.

"He did not share the identity with me, but he wanted to make sure that I knew, and if I had an opportunity to share it that it was not his grandmother nor his grandfather that were a part of those conversations," Winfrey said.

Winfrey also shared that she felt Prince Harry's sadness and pain over his relationship with his family—especially with his father, Prince Charles—throughout the interview. "I was surprised that he was open, vulnerable," she said. "We could feel his pain when he was speaking about his father and the moment where he says that 72 members of parliament stood up and nobody in his family did and that hurts—I could I could feel that he really deeply meant that," she told the hosts.

Winfrey and the hosts Gayle King, Anthony Mason, and Tony Dokupil, also talked about Markle, who, from what Winfrey discovered back in 2018, was given advice to be "50% less than she was" right after joining the Royal Family.

The media executive recalled a shared conversation that shattered her heart, saying, "She said she had been told, been given advice that it would be best if she could be 50% less than she was, that was the quote."

Winfrey added, "I remember hearing that in 2018 and said specifically to her 'I don't know how you're going to survive being half of yourself.'"

But ultimately, WInfrey believes that the couple was just tired of being lied to. All these allegations and rumors about them and the lies they've been fed with is what led them to do this interview.

"I think they agreed to do it, wanted to do it, were ready to do it," said Winfrey. She added, "I think anybody, you can understand this if in your own office or in your own family, somebody is saying things about you that are not true and how hurtful that is. Or if you're online and you read the comments from something that somebody has said about you and you continue to see those comments how hurtful that is. So imagine that for over a period of months and years and you know that it isn't true."
