Prince Harry think about how Princess Diana might have reacted to his royal exit.

While Oprah Winfrey‘s in-depth CBS interview with Harry and Meghan Markle On Sunday March 7, the longtime television personality asked him how his late mother would feel about the ongoing drama between the couple and the royal family.

“I think she would be very angry about how that turned out and very sad,” Harry replied. “But at the end of the day, she would just want us to be happy.”

He later added, “I think she saw it coming. And I felt her presence throughout the process. I’m just very relieved and happy to sit here and talk to you with my wife by my side. Because I can not.” Start to imagine what it must have been like when she went through this process on her own all those years ago because it was incredibly difficult for both of us, but at least we had each other. “

Harry also gave insight into how things are for him and other family members, including his grandmother Queen Elizabeth the second.

“I’ve spoken to my grandmother more in the last year than I have in many, many years,” he said. “My grandmother and I have a really good relationship. And an understanding. And I have a lot of respect for her. She’s my colonel, right? She always will be.”
