Prince Harry has revealed that he woke up in the middle of the night to find his wife Meghan Markle “crying into her pillow.”

During a recent, candid chat with Oprah Winfrey for his new documentary series The Me You Can’t See, Prince Harry, 36, admitted Meghan was crying in the middle of the night after bullying claims emerged.

It was reported that Meghan was facing allegations of bullying staff made by one of her closest advisers during her time at Kensington Palace.

Harry and Meghan vehemently denied the claims made by the Times stating that Meghan is “saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma.”

They added: “She is determined to continue her work building compassion around the world and will keep striving to set an example for doing what is right and doing what is good.”

However, Harry has now shared that the allegations had an impact on his wife, and he continued: “I was woken up in the middle of the night to her crying in her pillow because she doesn't want to wake me up, because I'm already carrying too much.

"That's heartbreaking. I held her, we talked, she cried, and she cried, and she cried."

In the chat with Oprah, Harry also revealed other parts of his life, including saying life “was a nightmare” for him at points.

The 36 year old detailed how his battle with mental health stems back to the death of his mother Princess Diana, who died in a car crash in Paris when Harry was just 12 years old in September 1997.

The Duke of Sussex has made a dig at the Royal family, claiming they showed "total neglect" towards him and Meghan when they asked for help.

Other bombshell moments from the five-part documentary series come when he likens his and Meghan's relationship to Diana and Dodi Fayed's and reveals an argument with Meghan led him to seek therapy.

"I saw GPs. I saw doctors. I saw therapists. I saw alternative therapists. I saw all sorts of people, but it was meeting and being with Meghan," he explained on the show.

The Duke of Sussex continued: "I knew that if I didn't do the therapy and fix myself that I was going to lose this woman who I could see spending the rest of my life with."

The royal went on to speak about the very start of his romance with the former Suits actress as he revealed she was the one who told him to go and see a therapist.

Harry said: "There was a lot of learning right at the beginning of our relationship. She [Meghan] was shocked to be coming backstage of the institution of the British Royal family.

"When she said, 'I think you need to see someone,' it was in reaction to an argument that we had.

"And in that argument, not knowing about it, I reverted back to 12 year old Harry."
