During Oprah Winfrey‘s in-depth CBS interview with Harry and Meghan Markle on Sunday, March 7, the longtime TV personality asked him how his late mother would feel about the continued drama between the couple and the royal family.
“I think she would feel very angry with how this has panned out, and very sad,” Harry replied. “But ultimately, all she’d ever want is for us to be happy.”
He also provided insight into how things stand for him and other family members, including his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.
“I’ve spoken more to my grandmother in the last year than I have done for many, many years,” he shared. “My grandmother and I have a really good relationship. And an understanding. And I have a deep respect for her. She’s my colonel in chief, right? She always will be.”
