In a bombshell tell-all interview with Oprah, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have revealed several never-before-been-shared details about their lives within the Royal Family— including the fact that they were married 3 days prior to their televised nuptials and what truly happened before they stepped back from their formal duties as senior royals.

One of the most shocking revelations includes the rift between father and son. In response to Oprah's question about whether or not the couple "blindsided" the Queen and Royal Family with their decision to move to the States and change their status in the Royal Family, Harry says that days before making the announcement, he had three conversations with the Queen and two with his father, Prince Charles—"before he stopped taking my calls," he said.

Oprah pressed him for details. "Why'd he stop taking your calls?" And after a pause, Harry said "Because at that point, I took matters into my own hands." He continued: "I needed to do this for my family. This is not a surprise to anybody; it's really sad that it got to this point, but I've got to do something for my mental health, for my wife's, and for Archie's as well."
