The controversial interview granted Oprah Winfrey by Prince Harry and Meghan Merkle has been nominated for an Emmy Award.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex could take home a gong for the two-hour chat, which saw them make a string of bombshell allegations against the Royal Family.

“Oprah with Meghan & Harry: A CBS Primetime Special” is nominated in the “Outstanding Hosted Nonfiction Series Or Special category”, it was confirmed today.

The winners will be announced at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles – where the Duke and Duchess live – on September 19.

During the Oprah interview, which aired in March, Meghan claimed an unnamed royal had raised “concerns” about the skin colour of her and Harry’s children and alleged the Palace had denied her mental health support.

The Duchess of Sussex said there had been conversations with Prince Harry and a “family” member about their unborn son and what colour his skin would be – and “what that would mean or look like”.

But the 39-year-old declined to say who had started those conversations, saying it would be “damaging” for them.

Prince Harry, 36, said he would “never share” the full details of the discussion but that he was asked at the start of his relationship with Meghan, how dark the skin of their children might be.

Other bombshells revealed by the couple in the two-hour special on CBS included confirmation of a falling out between Meghan and Kate Middleton.

Meghan claimed she had been the one left in tears after a confrontation over the bridesmaid’s dresses with the Duchess of Cambridge.

Meanwhile, royal drama The Crown topped this year’s Emmy nominations with 24 nods each.
