The pair didn't hold back in the slightest when it came to dropping some major bombshells, including the sex of their baby, that they actually married three days prior to the Royal wedding, and a slew of other shocking claims that had us audibly gasping.
Check out some of the biggest bombshells that were made during the two-hour special - and be sure to grab the popcorn.
They're having a baby girl
As Harry joined her during the interview, Meghan revealed that the couple are expecting a baby girl.
"To have any child would have been amazing. But to have a boy and then a girl? What more could you ask for?" Harry gushed.
The pair added that they don't plan to have any more children following the birth of their daughter, saying they will be a family of four, plus their two dogs.
There was 'concern' over how dark Archie's skin colour would be
In the most heartbreaking revelation that came from the interview, Meghan revealed that she was told by her husband that his family had mentioned their 'concerns' over their baby's skin colour prior to his birth.
"I can give you an honest answer. In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, so we have in tandem the conversation of he won't be given security, he's not going to be given a title, and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin is going to be when he's born.."
Oprah, visibly shocked, asked her: "What? What? Who is having that conversation with you?"
Meghan, however, did not wish to reveal their identity.
"I think that would be very damaging to them. That was relayed to me, that was Harry's conversations with family."
Later on, Harry shared his thoughts on the shocking comments, saying: "That conversation I'm never going to share. I was shocked.
"There were some obvious signs before we were married that this was going to be really hard," continued Harry.
Harry says his family have cut him off
Harry revealed to Oprah that the royal family had actually cut him off financially in the first half of 2020, leaving him to rely on money that Princess Diana had saved for him.
"I've got what my mum left me. I think she saw this coming," Harry said.
As for where he stands with his family now, he revealed: "I've spoken more to my grandmother in the past year than I have for many many years. I have a deep respect for her."
He added that after a period in which Prince Charles refused to take his calls, he is now speaking to him.
"There's a lot to work through there. I feel really let down because he's been through something similar.
"Archie's his grandson. I will always love him, but there's a lot of hurt that's happened. I will continue to make it one of my priorities to heal that relationship."
As for William, he said: "Much will continue to be said about that. I love William to bits... but we were on different paths."
Meghan reveals she struggled with her mental health as a Royal
Meghan also shockingly revealed that following the constant attacks from the press and the lack of support from the Royal family, she eventually felt like she 'didn't want to be alive anymore.'
She also says she was refused help from the family and was denied a request to go to a hospital for mental health.
"It was all happening just because I was breathing. I was ashamed to admit it at the time, and admit it to Harry because of how much loss he's suffered, but I knew that I didn't want to be alive anymore," she said.
"That was a very real, clear, constant thought. He just cradled me. I went to the institution and said I needed help, and I was told it wouldn't be good for the institution.
"I went to human resources and said 'I need help'. In my old job there was a union that would protect me. They said 'My heart goes out to you, but you're not a paid employee of the institution'.
"It takes so much courage to admit that you need help. It took so much courage to voice that," Meghan said.
"I didn't want to put more weight on my husband's shoulders. He's already carrying the weight of the world."
She added that one of the people to help her was a friend of Princess Diana friends.
Kate Middleton made Meghan cry
Meghan also addressed a long-running rumour that she had made Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, cry prior to the 2018 wedding.
"Did you make her cry?" Oprah asked.
"No," Meghan replied.
In fact, it turns out it was actually the reverse situation.
"A few days before the wedding she was upset about something ... and it made me cry and it really hurt my feelings," Meghan said of her sister-in-law, with the comment apparently being over a flower girl's dress.
"What was hard to get over was being blamed for something not only I didn't do, but happened to me."
Asked by Oprah why it was never publically corrected by the Palace, Meghan said: "it's a good question".
Meghan and Harry were married three days before the Royal Wedding
Apparently, the pair asked the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, to wed them prior to the internationally televised wedding event and he agreed to do it for them.
Speaking to Oprah, Meghan called the Royal wedding an 'out of body experience', saying that the big day seen across the globe was something that was 'planned for the world'.
"I've thought about this a lot because it was like having an out of body experience I was very present for," she said.
"That's the only way I can describe it because the night before I slept through the night entirely, which in and of itself is a bit of a miracle. And then woke up and started listening to that song 'Going to the Chapel.'
"And just tried to make it fun and light and remind ourselves that this was our day - but I think we were both really aware, even in advance of that just, this wasn't our day. This was the day that was planned for the world."
