Prince Harry, who shocked Britain past year when he and his wife Meghan stepped back from royal duties, told US interviewer Oprah Winfrey that he had anxious about history repeating itself, according to excerpts released on Sunday.

USA television network CBS released two 30-second excerpts from Oprah With Meghan And Harry: A CBS Primetime Special - which is set to air at 8pm Eastern Time in the U.S. on Sunday, or 1.00am Monday UK time.

She also donned a £1,800 Aquamarine Collette Pendant Cord Necklace from sustainable designer Pippa Small.

In a short but effective preview that shows us what we can expect from Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A Primetime Special, Harry is seen candidly discussing how his mom went through tough times alone.

They will point to her Grenfell cookbook, the countless speeches she and Harry gave during engagements, the Queen taking her under her wing with a trip on the Royal train, and Meghan appearing to dominate the conversation during an outing with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to lay out their charitable vision in February 2018. "The little diamonds either side are from my mother's jewellery collection, to make sure she's with us on this insane journey together".

As well as Princess Diana's bracelet, the royal looked in her own beloved collection for pieces.

A spokesperson for the couple hit back at suggestions that Meghan and Harry were not devoted to duty. She selected an emerald-cut aquamarine ring from Diana's collection for her wedding reception at Frogmore House. According to People magazine, Meghan surprised everyone by wearing an affordable yet cute dress while chatting with her husband Prince Harry and their friend and host James Corden.

Meghan is well known for her love of dressing up more simple understated outfits with decadent jewellery worth thousands.

The couple have come under scrutiny for agreeing to speak to the U.S. chat show queen despite complaining of media intrusion and unwanted publicity.

The Duke of Windsor and Wallis Simpson each had earlier versions of the Cartier Love Bracelet. It is believed to be a gift from Harry.

The dress knit dress which features a tiered skirt is "Made in USA" and has gone out of stock after Meghan wore it on national television. It will air on CBS on March 7 at 8 p.m. ET.
