The Duke and Duchess of Sussex – who quit royal duties last year and are now living in California – made a string of explosive claims about the monarchy in the TV interview, which aired in March. But royal commentators have said former actress Meghan could one day regret pouring her heart out in the tell-all chat.
Speaking on new Channel 5 documentary Meghan at 40: The Climb To Power, royal author Tom Quinn said: “I think the problem for Meghan was that she was angry, she was upset.
“I think that she thought when she entered the Royal Family she could shake them up and they would love it, she would do things Meghan’s way.
“When that didn’t happen and she came up against what she saw as the forces of reaction it made her so upset that, that interview was her way I think the only way for her to get her revenge and put the case as she saw it.
“But I think later on she will think I shouldn’t have burnt my bridges to that extent.”
Royal commentator Ashley Pearson said: “Some people might wonder whether or not Meghan may live to regret all of the revelations in the Oprah interview.
“Oprah herself said afterwards that she was surprised that Meghan said some of the things that she did.”
Royal expert Emily Andrews added: “Don’t forget that the only member of her family that she sees is her mother Doria.
“She doesn’t see any of her father’s family and Archie and Lilibet will grow up without seeing any of their cousins.
“I think she may regret being quite so public with that Oprah interview because that is there for posterity.”
Meghan and Harry made a series of damaging claims about the royals in the interview, sparking a fresh crisis for the monarchy just one year after Megxit.
They even accused an unnamed member of the Royal Family – not the Queen or Prince Philip – of making a racist comment about their son Archie.

Harry went on to hit out at his family several more times in the following weeks.
And the royals are likely to be bracing for further revelations after the Duke revealed on Monday he is penning his memoir.
Senior royals were reportedly only told about the book shortly before Harry’s announcement.
The memoir is due out next year as the Queen celebrates her Platinum Jubilee.
Royal author Penny Junor said: “The family must be despairing, this is a man who they all love and he seems to be doing his best to embarrass and damage his family.
“I think it’s a bit early to be writing a proper memoir, I imagine it is self justification and it’s exploring himself, and finding himself, but it’s going to be, I suspect, at other people’s expense.”
Harry and Meghan quit as working royals in March 2020 and are now living in Montecito with their two-year-old son Archie and newborn daughter Lili.
