Meghan Markle and Prince Harry appear not to be “that happy” after their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, according to royal expert Russell Myers. The Sussexes’ explosive interview saw them talk about the pressures of their former lives before they stepped down as working royals and moved to America. They also accused an unnamed member of the royal family – not the Queen or Philip – of raising concerns about how dark their son Archie’s skin tone would be before he was born.
Speaking to 7News, Mr Myers said: “There is now way back for Harry and Meghan now.
“I think there is an awful lot of damage done from this interview.
“There were reputations that were absolutely destroyed.
“It’s an absolutely extraordinary turn of events and I didn’t think they looked even that happy.”
It comes as the royal family have taken their first steps towards a reconciliation with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – but a friend of Meghan claimed initial talks were “not productive”.
US breakfast show host Gayle King said she had called the Sussexes and was told Harry had spoken to his father, the Prince of Wales, and brother the Duke of Cambridge – but no-one has yet spoken to Meghan.
King suggested that despite the conversations not bearing fruit, the Sussexes were “glad” dialogue had started.
After the interview, the Queen said in a statement that the issues raised, including race, would be “addressed by the family privately”.

Meghan revealed she asked for help when she was suicidal, but said the institution gave her no support.
King said on CBS This Morning: “I’m not trying to break news, but I did actually call them to see how they were feeling and it’s true Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father too.
“The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive but they are glad that they have at least started a conversation.
“And I think what is still upsetting to them is that the palace keeps saying they want to work it out privately, but yet they believe these false stories are coming out that are very disparaging against Meghan still – no one in the royal family has talked to Meghan yet.”

The airing of the interview would have been postponed if the Duke of Edinburgh had died, a friend of Meghan has said.
King said the couple’s chat with Oprah Winfrey was recorded and scheduled before Philip was admitted to hospital in February.
King made the comments on her SiriusXM show last Thursday after a listener called in to say the timing of the interview was “terrible” as Philip was receiving treatment when it aired.
“Just so you know, they had done that interview before Prince Phillip went into the hospital,” King said on her radio show.
