The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, and her husband, Prince Harry, sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a tell-all interview about racism within the royal family, Archie not receiving a royal title, struggling with mental health, Prince Charles cutting ties with his youngest son, and using the money his mother, Princess Diana, left him. 

Markle and Prince Harry's exclusive interview with Oprah aired on Monday, 8 March, in South Africa.   

Hillary Clinton spoke to The Washington Post and said: “Every institution has got to make more space and acceptance for young people coming up, particularly young women, who should not be forced into a mold that is no longer relevant, not only for them, but for our society.”
