Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey was nominated for an Emmy Award"

Yesterday, the American Academy of Television named the nominees for the 73rd Emmy Television Awards, which will be held on September 19 in Los Angeles. Among the contenders for the award was the scandalous interview of the Dukes of Sussex to Oprah Winfrey, which aired on March 7.

It is presented in the nomination "Outstanding Nonfiction series or special issue".

The interview of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, which aired on CBS, received a great public response and became very rated — it was watched by more than 17 million people.

The statements made by the couple shocked the audience. Recall that Megan said that she faced manifestations of racism when she lived in the palace. She said that some members of the royal family (she did not name names) were worried about how dark the skin color of their first child with Harry would be. The Duchess also said that because of the harassment in the British media, she was visited by suicidal thoughts. And when she tried to seek professional help, she was refused - the palace told her that this could have an extremely negative impact on the reputation of the royal family.

Because of this interview, the couple's relations with members of the royal family worsened (however, the couple noticeably distanced themselves from British relatives even after they resigned their royal powers). It had a particularly strong impact on the relationship between Harry and William — the older brother was enraged by the younger's statements. Now they are trying to forget about the conflict and past grievances and try to start all over again.
