Awkward! Prince Edward and his wife, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, were recently asked if they had tuned into Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Oprah Winfrey chat, which aired in March.

"Oprah, who?" Edward told The Telegraph, while Sophie added, "What interview?"

At Meghan and Harry's wedding in 2018, Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, famously asked Winfrey what she did for a living. Sophie later defended Welby, telling the outlet: "You know, if you're not into chat shows, there's no reason why you should know who she is. Certainly not in this ."

Meghan and Harry made several bombshell claims while speaking to Winfrey. First, they claimed that someone in the royal family was "concerned" over Archie's skin color and that when they tried to talk to someone about their mental health problems, they were rejected.

After the interview, the Queen responded to the allegations. "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan. The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members," Buckingham Palace said at the time.

But Harry hasn't stopped talking about his family since then. In fact, he spoke to Dax Shepard all about his upbringing, and during the new AppleTV+ series The Me You Can't See, the red-headed royal criticized his father's parenting skills.

"My father used to say to me when I was younger, ‘Well, it was like that for me, so it’s going to be like that for you,'" Harry said.

"That doesn’t make sense," he noted. "Just because you suffered that doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer, in fact quite the opposite. If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences that you had you can make it right for your kids."

Since then, Harry has not been on good terms with his family — and it seems like it will take some time for things to be repaired.

"The fact that there have been several additional interviews discussing family matters hasn't helped the situation," a source told Entertainment Tonight.
