Prince Harry told Oprah Winfrey his wife Meghan Markle saved him from being ‘trapped’ in royal life like his dad and brother. Speaking on CBS on Sunday night, the Duke of Sussex admitted he’d never have left royal life were it not for Meghan – and insisted he was glad his wife had opened his eyes to the world outside it.

Asked by Oprah if he would have ‘stepped back’ from royal life ‘were it not for Meghan,’ Harry answered: ‘I would not have been able to. I myself was trapped as well. I didn’t see a way out.

‘I was trapped but I didn’t know I was trapped, but the moment I met Meg and our world collided in the most amazing of ways.

Harry then turned to the restof his family, saying they were ‘trapped in the system’ of royal life. Elaborating, he continued: ‘My father and my brother. They don’t get to leave, and I have huge compassion for that.’
