In a new teaser of Meghan Markle's sit-down with Oprah Winfrey, the Duchess of Sussex revealed her dismay over what she felt was "a lot lost" in her relationship with the royal family.

A new clip dropped by CBS showed Oprah and Meghan as they sat in a garden area where the interview was held.

Meghan wore her dark tresses parted in the middle and secured in a chignon at the nape of her neck. Two curled tendrils framed her face.

The former actress wore a long, dark dress with a v-neckline. A light blue floral pattern was visible on her right side.

Oprah asked Meghan how she felt about the Palace hearing her speak her truth during the interview.

“I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that the Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us,” Markle says,

 The Firm is a nickname used for the royal family as reported by Newsweek. The name was reportedly originated by King George VI.

“And if that comes with a risk of losing things,” she adds, “there’s a lot that’s been lost already.”

'It Has Been Unbelievably Tough For The Two Of Us'

"You know, for me, I'm just really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you with my wife by my side because I can't begin to imagine what it must've been like for her going through this process by herself all those years ago," he said of what his late mother dealt with in a clip seen below.

"Because it has been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we have each other," Harry concluded.
