Prince Harry is said to have agreed to do the Oprah Winfrey interview 24 hours after he lost his military titles, it has been claimed.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, and his wife Meghan Markle were said to have been "very cross" over the decisions that were made in the final deal on their new lives.

Meghan and Harry stepped down from their roles as senior working members of the Royal Family last year.

After the couple shared their plans for a new life and moved to the US, it was announced this year that Harry will return his military appointments and Royal patronages to the Queen.

It was reportedly originally thought that the couple's decision to speak out in the explosive interview was trigged by them being told Archie will not be a Prince.

But, a source has now told The Sun: "There was a bust-up just before Oprah but it wasn’t to do with Archie’s title.

"That had been known and discussed for quite a while.

"Harry and Meghan were very cross before Oprah because the final Megxit separation had just been signed off which included Harry not keeping military roles.

"That was what made him so angry. He’s very emotional and his military roles were very important to him given that he served."

Prince Harry, who's wife Meghan Markle gifted him a bench for Father's Day, served in the Army for ten years and undertook two tours of Afghanistan.

During his time in the services, he received promotions; including becoming a Major in the British Army, Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Navy and Squadron Leader in the Royal Air Force.

Following Harry and Meghan's decision to step down from their roles as senior Royals, three key roles were removed by The Queen.

They were Captain General Royal Marines, handed down to him by Prince Philip, Honorary Air Commandant at RAF Honington and Commodore-in-Chief, Small Ships and Diving, Royal Naval Command.

It's been reported that palace insiders have said the decision to remove the miliitary roles came amid fears TV bosses could use them to promote his Netflix documentaries and talk shows.

Ahead of Prince Philip's funeral in April, Harry faced being one of the few Royal Family members not wearing a military uniform after his titles were stripped.

But, it was later decided that everyone would wear suits to the sombre event, which is said to have been suggested by The Queen.

A source told The Sun at the time: "It’s the most eloquent solution to the problem."
