Prince Harry issued a thinly-veiled dig at dad Prince Charles after saying late mum Princess Diana suffered "by herself".

In a first look at wife Meghan Markle and Harry’s controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey, preview clips were shared on YouTube by CBS.

The clip shows Meghan clutching her baby bump and holding the hand of her husband as he chatted about what the pair went through in the wake of Megxit.

Speaking to Oprah, Prince Harry says he’s "relieved and happy" to be chatting to the US chat show host with his wife by his side.

He then goes on to say he "can’t begin to imagine" what it would have been like for his mum, Diana, who "went through this process by herself" all those years ago.

Prince Harry says: "For me, I’m happy and relieved to be sitting here talking to you with my wife by my side because I can’t begin to imagine what it must have been like for her going through this process by herself, all those years ago."

As a montage of a young Harry with his mum plays throughout his speech, the clip ends with Prince Charles' son saying he's glad the couple "have each other".

Prince Harry tells Oprah: "It has been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we have each other."

Charles and Diana divorced in 1996 before Diana's death in 1997. Charles is now with Camilla Parker Bowles.

Before the screen fades to black, Meghan squeezes Harry's and agrees with him before turning back to Oprah.

The divorce was widely reported at the time as she was an iconic figure, which led to intense scrutiny from the media and the general public.

Princess Diana’s struggle came to a tragic halt on the 31 August 1997 when the car she was in with Dodi Fayed crashed.

Dodi, along with Diana, died in the tragic accident, which occurred in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris.

The couple were fleeing the paparazzi when the crash occurred and days later the world watched on as a young Prince Harry followed his mother’s coffin through the street.

Her funeral was broadcast on television, with figures peaking at 32.10m, one of the highest viewing figures in history.
