Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first interview following their engagement announcement has re-emerged – and it seems in stark contrast to recent TV appearances.
The Sussexes have opened up about the mental health struggles they faced within the Royal Family in a series of bombshell TV interviews and podcasts this year.
Harry’s revelations to Oprah Winfrey in March that he had barely spoken to his father Prince Charles since stepping down also sparked rumors of a rift, while Meghan claimed she was left in tears by a comment made by Kate Middleton before her wedding.
And the Duke has previously described his relationship with his brother William as "space".
But it was clear in their first interview together with the BBC in November 2017, that there were no signs of any supposed rifts.
“Catherine’s [Kate Middleton] been absolutely amazing as has William – fantastic support,” Harry said.
“We’ve had a handful of teas and gatherings over at his place as well.
“The family, together, have been an absolutely solid support and my grandparents have been wonderful throughout this process.”
Meghan chimed in admitting they had been “wonderful” and “amazing”.
A short clip from the interview was shared to Twitter today (May 28) in the wake of the Sussexes’ bombshell revelations.
Harry’s biographer Angela Levin, who has been vocal in her criticism of the pair since they stepped back as senior royals, shared her thoughts online.
“Fascinating to see again,” she said. “Makes little sense for Meghan to describe the family as 'wonderful' and Kate as 'amazing' and then to slam the door in their faces.”
She also appeared on talkRADIO and spoke further about the engagement interview.
“So what has changed?” she asked. “I think they’ve changed, I don’t think the Royal Family have changed.”
The video emerged after Harry and Oprah appeared in a follow-up show to their Apple TV+ documentary The Me You Can’t See.
In it, the Duke said that “parents aren’t equipped” to help their children growing up and blasted the world as being “depressing”.
