The highly anticipated interview by Oprah Winfrey with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry aired on M-Net on 8 March amid much speculation and fanfare.

The interview dropped some serious allegations and major bombshells but these things will forever live in our heads rent free:

Mental health, toxic families aren’t just reserved for regular folk:

You can have all the money and power in the world, but still be miserable. Harry and Meghan prove that toxicity and mental health issues aren’t just reserved for “everyday” people but in fact even for royals.

Diana would be so proud of Harry:

Safety, making an impact and giving her children a “normal” life was all she ever wanted. Stepping back from royal duties for the sake of their children and their own sanity is exactly what the couple are doing:
