Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey aired on Sunday, March 7. And as the teasers suggested, the couple didn't hold anything back. Winfrey was, obviously, correct: No topic was off-limits.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex talked about everything—why they decided to step back from their duties as senior members of the royal family, their relationship with the Queen, the infamously brutal British tabloids, and much more. In the first few minutes, we learned the couple were not prepped ahead of time—Oprah's questions will be the first time they hear them—and also they will not be getting paid for the interview. Markle also said she and Harry will reveal the gender  of their second baby to Oprah during the sit-down.

Before a word was uttered, Markle's beauty look alone could have predicted the tone of the interview. She opted for a dark eyeliner that was reminiscent of what Princess Diana wore for her now-iconic interview with BBC's Martin Bashir in 1995. “Makeup is often an opportunity to reflect on the outside the way we feel inside,” founder of Beaumont Etiquette and royals expert Myka Meier told Glamour. “Also considered a groundbreaking interview, I'm not surprised to see Meghan's choice of makeup to be bold and empowered, similar to Princess Diana's during her Martin interview."

The Duchess of Sussex also wore one of Princess Diana's bracelets during the chat with Winfrey—another tie-in to the late royal who faced similar scrutiny from the British press. Prince Harry addressed the parallels between his wife and mother to Winfrey as well, saying at one point, “My biggest concern was history repeating itself.”

Meghan Markle Was Financially Comfortable Long Before She Met Harry

  Meghan Markle Was Financially Comfortable Long Before She Met Harry Who knew Suits royalties could sustain actual royalty?The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have taken this responsibility seriously: Last September, they reportedly repaid the $3 million in public funding that had been used to renovate Frogmore Cottage, their residence on the royal Windsor estate. They've also begun to establish their own partnerships with various private companies to help fund their continued philanthropic work, in addition to relying on the sizable inheritance left to Harry by his late mother, Princess Diana.

That barely scratches the surface of what was covered during the two-hour interview. Below, a complete breakdown of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's conversation with Oprah Winfrey.

On the fanfare of the royal wedding:

“It was like having an out-of-body experience that I was very present for. The night before, I slept through the night entirely, which in and of itself is a little bit of a miracle.”“I just tried to make it fun and light and remind ourselves this was our day, but I think we were both aware even in advance of that this wasn’t 'our' day. This was a day that was planned for the world.”

Meghan never Googled Harry:

“I will say I went into [this marriage] naively because I didn’t grow up knowing much about the royal family… My mom even said to me a couple months ago, “Did Diana ever do an interview?” Adding that “of course” she was aware of the royals, Markle said she didn’t do any research before her marriage. “I’ve never looked up my husband online,” she said. “Everything we thought I needed to know, he was telling me.” She also told Winfrey that she didn’t “fully understand” what it meant to be a working royal before her marriage.

Meghan had to curtsy when she met the Queen for the first time:

“She was one of the first people I met. There wasn’t actually a huge formality the first time I met Her Majesty The Queen. We were going to lunch at Royal Lodge, which is where some of the other members of the family lived, specifically Andrew and Fergie and Eugenie and Beatrice. Eugenie and I had known each other before I knew Harry, so that was comfortable. It turned out the queen was finishing a church service there in Windsor, and she was gonna be at the house. I remember Harry and I were in the car. He [was like, ‘My grandmother’s here, so you’re gonna meet her.” [I said], ‘Oh, great. I loved my grandmother. I used to take care of her.”

Then Prince Harry asked Markle if she knew how to curtsy. “I thought, genuinely, that was what happened outside. I thought that was part of the fanfare,” Markle said. “I didn’t know that’s what happens inside.” “But it’s your grandmother,” Markle said, to which Prince Harry said, “It’s the queen."

Later in the interview, Meghan said of the Queen: “She’s always been warm and inviting and really welcoming," and revealed that she received a beautiful set of pearl earrings and a matching necklace from Harry's grandmother.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Interview With Oprah Just Changed The Royal Family’s Reputation Forever

  Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Interview With Oprah Just Changed The Royal Family’s Reputation Forever Here's what you need to know about this buzzy Peruvian root.

Meghan and Harry had a secret wedding ceremony:

“Three days before our wedding, we got married,” Markle revealed. “Nobody knows that.” She and Harry called the Archbishop of Canterbury and told him that the royal wedding was a “spectacle” for the world—and they wanted an authentic ceremony with just the two of them in their backyard.

No, Meghan did not make Kate Middleton cry—it was the opposite.

The rumor that she made Kate Middleton cry was a “turning point,” Markle says. “The narrative with Kate, which didn’t happen, was really, really difficult. I think that’s when everything changed, really." Markle never made Middleton cry. “The reverse happened,” Markle said. “I say that not to be disparaging to anyone because it was a really hard week [of the 2018 wedding], and she was upset about something. She owned it and she apologized, and she brought me flowers and a note apologizing. She did what I would do if I knew I hurt someone. To just take accountability for it.” “I would’ve never wanted that to come out about her,” Markle continued. “Ever. Even thought it had happened. I protected that from ever being out in the world.”

Markle says a few days before the wedding, Middleton was upset about flower girl dresses, and it made Markle. “It really hurt my feelings,” Markle said. “I thought in the context of everything that was going on in those days leading to the wedding that it didn’t make sense to not just be doing what everyone else was doing, which was being supportive knowing what was going on with my dad and whatnot.”

Markle says she’s forgiven Middleton and has moved on, but “What was hard to get over was being blamed for something that not only I didn’t do, but that happened to me. And the people who were a part of our wedding going to our comms team and saying, ‘I know this didn’t happen.’"

On the conversation about Meghan being “different”:

“Well, I thought about it because they made me think about it,” she says of the media coverage. Now, upon reflection, she’s happy all of those things were true. “Thank God I had those life experiences...I’ve always worked, I’ve always valued independence. I’ve always advocated for women’s rights.” The sad irony, she added, is that she’s always advocated for women but spent the last four years being silenced.
