The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey will air in the UK this evening.

The interview, which was first shown in the US last night and unleashed a dramatic set of revelations, will be on ITV from 9pm.

Harry and Meghan hit out at the institution and members of the royal family in a series of astonishing admissions.

The duchess revealed that working for The Firm - as the royal family is sometimes known - ultimately left her feeling that ending her life was an option, and how she had not been protected by the monarchy.

It was also revealed that a member of the royal family - who both Harry and Meghan refused to identify - was worried about how dark their son Archie's skin tone might be before he was born.
