    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive Oprah interview was met with boos when a clip was aired at Thursday’s National Television Awards. 

    After Sir Trevor McDonald introduced the collection of the year’s most iconic TV moments, a montage aired with scenes from the Royals’ interviews included at the ceremony which was held at London’s 02 Arena. 

    While the booing did not appear on-screen for the live telecast, attendees revealed to MailOnline that the audience ‘loudly’ jeered and booed once the duo appeared on-screen in the infamous interview.  

    During an explosive chat with Oprah in March, Meghan claimed her sister-in-law Kate Middleton made her cry before she married, said there was ‘concern’ over Archie’s skin colour from members of the royal family and that she was ‘silenced’ by The Firm.

    Their bombshell interview was watched by over 17m people watched the two and a half hour sit-down interview, which laid bare their family dramas. 

    Harry and Meghan’s interview sent shock waves around the world as the couple laid bare the extent of their rift with the Firm.

    They accused a Royal Family member of racism, suggesting the relative had asked ‘how dark’ their son would be; said they had been driven out of Britain, in part, by racism; and accused the Palace machinery of failing to support a ‘suicidal’ Meghan.

    Harry revealed an astonishing rift with his father, saying his family had cut him off financially while suggesting the Queen had been badly advised and had cancelled a meeting scheduled at Sandringham. 

    Meghan also accused her sister-in-law Kate of making her cry; suggested senior royals plotted to ensure Archie would never have a title or adequate security; and said officials had failed to stand up for the couple against ‘racist’ commentary, while lying to protect other royals. 

    It has been revealed that a teaser of the interview was met with boos and jeers when it appeared on-screen at the star-studded award ceremony.

    In July, it was revealed that the interview had been nominated for an Emmy Award.

    ‘Kate made me cry’ to the Wimbledon pictures that ‘weren’t as they seemed’: Sussexes’ claims about Cambridges during Oprah Winfrey interview

    Row that ‘made Meghan cry’ 

    Reports circulated ahead of the Sussexes’ nuptials that Meghan left Kate in tears at Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress fitting.

    But Meghan told Oprah the ‘reverse happened’.

    Meghan said she was not sharing the information to be ‘disparaging’, but added it was ‘really important for people to understand the truth’.

    ‘She’s a good person,’ the duchess added.

    Wimbledon photos ‘not as they seemed’

    Meghan also gave more details about her strained relationship with Kate.  

    She was asked about a memorable joint-outing to Wimbledon, where the pair put on a united front and were pictured laughing together.

    During the interview she appeared to cast doubt on the authenticity of that seemingly affable appearance, saying: ‘Nothing is what it looks like’.

    ‘Waity Katie’ jibe ‘not the same as racism’ 

    Meghan said her treatment by the press cannot be compared to Kate being called ‘Waity Katie’ because it is ‘not the same as racism’. 

    The Duchess of Sussex said she believed she had been singled out because she was ‘not just British’. She said: ‘I think the volume of what was coming in and the interest was greater because of social media, because of the fact that I was not just British…

    ‘If they can compare what the experience that I went through was similar to what has been shared with us, Kate was called Waity Katie, waiting to marry William.

    ‘While I imagine that was hard, and I do, I can’t picture what that felt like, this is not the same.’  

    Harry: ‘Trapped’ William and I ‘on different paths’

    When asked about if he remains close to William he replied: ‘I love William to bits. He’s my brother. 

    ‘We’ve been through hell together. I mean, we have a shared experience. But we’re on different paths’. 

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who welcomed their second child Lilibet Diana on 4 June, could take home a gong for their tell-all.

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

    The winners will be announced at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on September 19, with US-based Harry and Meghan up against Stanley Tucci: Searching For Italy and My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman.

    The interview sparked further scandal when Piers Morgan quit Good Morning Britain over his thoughts on the chat before making history with complaints. 

    Last week, Piers renewed his war of words with the Sussexes after his historic free speech win over Meghan Markle to accuse them of ‘continually trashing’ the Queen while they were complaining about the Duchess’ own mental health.

    The journalist was sensationally cleared by Ofcom who backed his right to free speech after he said that he ‘didn’t believe a word’ of what Meghan Markle told Oprah and challenged her claims of royal racism and suicidal thoughts.

    The UK’s broadcasting watchdog called attempts to silence the MailOnline columnist a ‘chilling restriction on freedom of expression’ after the Duchess of Sussex was among a wave of people who complained that his questioning of her account of royal racism and suicidal thoughts was ‘harmful’ and ‘offensive’ to viewers.
