Harry revealed in the interview that he and his father, heir to the throne Prince Charles, went through a major rough patch in their relationship, with the future king even ceasing to answer his son’s phone calls.
The young prince explained that he only had two conversations with his father and three with his grandmother after moving to Canada before Charles stopped taking his calls.
No further details on what transpired during those conversations were given.
What is Meghan’s relationship with Kate Middleton like now?

Since early in the marriage between Harry and Markle, it was rumored that the Duchess of Sussex was involved in some drama with her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton.
Among the earliest revelations in the Winfrey interview was when Markle explained that a rumor that she made Middleton cry around the time of her wedding to Harry was untrue — in fact, Middleton was the one who made Markle cry.
The former actress explained that Middleton eventually apologized and sent flowers after the emotional moment, but made no indication of how things are between them now.
Another one of the jaw-dropping moments from the interview was the reveal that Markle was blocked from receiving mental health assistance when she was facing suicidal thoughts.
The former “Suits” star said she had lost her desire to be alive after facing intense scrutiny in the press and approached an unnamed “senior” member of the Institution to discuss her receiving treatment.
She claims she was told that treatment wasn’t an option, as it would reflect poorly on the family.
While Buckingham Palace has released several statements regarding Harry’s royal exit which indicate that the Queen feels down about the deal, they’ve also insisted that Harry and his family remain very loved and in good graces of the Queen.
What happened on the Australian tour?

Harry said that before he and his wife toured the Southern Pacific, his family was “really welcoming” and supportive of his marriage to Markle, but things “really changed” after the trip.
“It was the first time that the family got to see how incredible she is at the job,” he explained, but offered no explanation as to why the family’s feelings changed.
Winfrey pointed out that Netflix’s “The Crown” indicates that something similar happened to Harry’s late mother Princess Diana after she toured Australia and asked if jealousy played a part in the downfall of his own family relationships, but the prince sidestepped the question.
“I just wished that we would all learn from the past,” he said.
