In the clip, Prince Harry claimed he had informed in December 2019 both his father Prince Charles and grandmother the Queen about his plans to step back as full-time working royal with Meghan.
At first, he said, the Queen had agreed on inviting the Sussexes to Sandringham, where she was based at the time, to discuss the matter further.
But upon their arrival to the UK at the end of their six-week break in Canada in early January 2020, Prince Harry said they had received a communication from the monarch’s private secretary saying the Queen was no longer available to see them in the near future.
He said: “That announcement that we put out on January 8 2020, that was… the contents of that was put into a letter to the institution, to my father, which was then shared at the end of December when we were in Canada.
“And to then get back on January 6 after my grandmother had said, ‘The moment you land, come up to Sandringham we’d love to have a chat, come for tea – why won’t you stay for dinner, because this is going to be a long drive, you are going to be exhausted’.
“The moment we land in the UK, I got a message from my private secretary at the time, cutting and pasting a message from the Queen’s private secretary basically saying, ‘Please, pass on to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex that they cannot come to Norfolk.
“‘The Queen is busy, she is busy all week’.”
Oprah chimed in saying: “After she had just invited you?”
“Yes. The Queen is busy, she is busy all week, do not come up here.
“Okay, so I ranged her from Frogmore that night and said, ‘I was thinking of coming anyway, but I hear you are now busy.’
“And she said, ‘Yes, there is something in my diary that I didn’t know I had’.
“I didn’t want to push because I kind of new what was going on, and then later that night-”
Asked by Oprah whether the Queen isn’t free to do what she wants, the Duke of Sussex said: “When you are head of the Firm, there is people around you that gives you advice.
“And what has also made me very sad is that some of that advice has been really bad.”
