Oprah's bombshell CBS interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took place on March 8, but anyone who watched it is probably still thinking about it. During the interview, the couple dropped a lot of details about their lives as senior royals.

In an interview with Nancy O’Dell on Talkshoplive on Friday, Oprah said even she didn't expect Meghan and Harry to go that deep in the interview. If you watched the interview, you'll recall that Meghan and Harry revealed that someone in the royal environment was concerned about the color of Archie's skin before he was born and that Meghan shared how much she struggled with her mental health while living in England as a working member of the royal family, among other deeply personal topics.

"Yeah, I was surprised," she said. "I was surprised at the amount of, you know, literally with that thing that's now become a meme, that's like, 'What?' I'm like, 'What? You're going there? You're going all the way there?'"

She added that there was a reason why the interview was "such a powerful interview": Meghan and Harry decided they wanted to, well, go there.

Oprah said that "when you have somebody who's as willing to be as open as vulnerable, as truthful as they were, so I don't give myself credit for that. I give myself credit for asking the questions, but the reason the interview was the way it was was because they answered the way they did."

Oprah told O'Dell that she texted Meghan and Harry to ask them what their "intention" was ahead of the interview so they could be "aligned in [their] goal."

"Our shared intention was the truth. They wanted to be able to tell their story and tell it in such a way that allowed them to be truthful as possible."
