Prince Harry has admitted that he hoped the bombshell interview he did with wife Meghan Markle and Oprah earlier this year would leave "an opening for reconciliation and healing."
He said they "were able to speak truth" in an "authentic" way about an experience that would be "relatable" to people across the globe.
In Prince Harry's new documentary series, 'The Me You Can’t See,' he finally gives some insight into the pair's thinking behind the explosive interview.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex believed the interview would help to clear the air to move forward.
"I like to think we were able to speak truth in the most compassionate way possible therefore leaving an opening for reconciliation and healing," Harry explained.
"The interview was about being real, being authentic and hopefully sharing experience that we know is incredibly relatable to a lot of people around the world despite our unique, privileged position."
Harry also revealed that before the Oprah interview he woke up in the night to find Meghan crying into a pillow due to the stress from "efforts by the firm and media to smears her".

In the documentary, Harry also opens up about the years of extreme anxiety and panic attacks where he would worry people could see him sweating or going red.
He also painted a desperate picture of a young man that was "willing to use" drugs and alcohol to "mask" his emotions although he didn't know at the time he was using it as a barrier.
He also spoke of Princess Diana and Meghan if he did not get them out of the UK.
He told Oprah: "If you have been through something that doesn't mean your kids or everybody else has to go through the same thing you've been through.
"I know it's my responsibility my duty to break that cycle."
