Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Have Been Nominated For An Emmy Award

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been nominated for an Emmy Award.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's damning and explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year was so big that it's earned the Royal couple one of the biggest honours in television.

They've received the nomination for the Outstanding Hosted Non-Fiction Series or Special category.

They'll be up against David Letterman's My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, United Shades of America W. Kamau Bell, VICE and Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy.

It will be the first time a member of the British Royal Family has received a nomination for the awards show.

When asked why she decided to partake in the tell-all with Oprah, Meghan Markle said: "As an adult who lived a really independent life to then go into this construct that is different than I think what people imagine it to be, it's really liberating to be able to have the right and the privilege in some ways to be able to say, 'Yes, I'm ready to talk.' To say it for yourself....To be able to just make a choice on your own and just be able to speak for yourself."

It certainly was a groundbreaking moment that hadn't been seen since Princess Diana gave her explosive insights to the BBC about her marriage and life in the Palace.

During the interview, the Duchess explained how she had been pushed to the brink and had suicidal thoughts while living in Buckingham Palace. Prince Harry also explained how a member of the family was concerned about the colour of their son's skin before he was born.

Oprah pushed Meghan to reveal a name and she refused because it would be very damaging for them, and Harry also stopped short of revealing the alleged culprit, saying: "That conversation, I am never going to share. At the time it was awkward. I was a bit shocked."

Oprah has since explained that there are definitely two people who can be taken off the list of potential Royal members.

"He did not share the identity with me but he wanted to make sure I knew, and if I had an opportunity to share it, that it was not his grandmother or grandfather that were part of those conversations," she said.

"He did not tell me who was a part of those conversations."

The claims that were aired sparked an investigation at Buckingham Palace and it has reportedly caused a rift between Harry and brother Prince William.
