Meghan said: "I think it'd be very hard to tell all when you don't know me. And I mean, it's this is a very different situation than my dad.

"When you talk about betrayal, betrayal comes from someone that you have a relationship with… I don't feel comfortable talking about people that I really don't know."

Meghan said she "grew up as an only child", and that the last time she saw Samantha was around 19 years ago.

The duchess said: " I wished I had siblings. I would have loved to have had siblings.

"I mean, the last time I saw [Samantha] must have been at least 18, 19 years ago. And before that, ten years before that."

Meghan said that Samantha changed her surname to Markle around the same time her and Harry began a relationship.

"She changed her last name back to Markle. And I think she was in her early 50s at that time, only when I started dating Harry," Meghan said.

"So I think that says enough."

The Duchess of Sussex said there had been conversations with Prince Harry and a "family" member about their unborn son and what colour his skin would be – and "what that would mean or look like".

But the 39-year-old declined to say who had started those conversations, saying it would be "damaging" for them.

Prince Harry said he would "never share" the full details of the discussion but that he was asked at the start of his relationship with Meghan, how dark the skin of their children might be.

Speaking to Oprah, Meghan said the concerns had been raised at the same time that the future parents were told Archie would not receive security as he was not a prince.

She said: "All the grandeur around this stuff is not really important to me.

"But in those months when I was pregnant, all around same time: we have in tandem he won’t be given security, a title and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born."

Oprah was left stunned and replied: "What? There is a conversation
hold on. Hold up. Hold up. Stop right now. 

"There's a conversation with you?" Meghan said: "With Harry."

Oprah went on: "About how dark your baby is going to be?" 

Meghan replied: "Potentially, and what that would mean or look like."

Oprah then gasped: "Whoa."

Asked whether there were concerns that her child would be “too brown” and that would be a problem, Meghan said: “If that is the assumption you are making, that is a pretty safe one.”

Prince Harry confirmed he had been involved in the conversations but said he would never share the details.

He said: "At the time it was awkward but I was a bit shocked."

Oprah had introduced the interview – confirming that "no subject is off limits" and that Meghan had not been paid for the chat.

Meghan talks about her family

Oprah Winfrey: And Samantha Markle, your half-sister on your father's side, has written a a supposedly tell-all book about you. What is what is your relationship with her?

Meghan Markle: I think it'd be very hard to tell all when you don't know me. And I mean, it's this is a very different situation than my dad. Right. When you talk about betrayal, betrayal comes from someone that you have a relationship with. Right. I don't feel comfortable talking about people that I really don't know. But I grew up as an only child, which everyone who grew up around me knows. And I wished I had siblings. I would have loved to have had siblings. So I'm so excited to be pregnant that Archie has someone. Was really interesting to me. I mean, the last time I saw her must have been at least 18, 19 years ago. And before that, ten years before that.

OW: So you all weren't close. You didn't grow up together?

MM: No.

OW: She doesn't really…

MM: No

OW:  …know you.

MM: So I think that says enough.
