Prince Harry said he felt the presence of his beloved late mother Princess Diana after he and Meghan Markle stepped back from royal life.
ITV will air Meghan and Harry's incredible tell-all interview with US chat show host Oprah Winfrey in full on Monday night.
In it, the royal told how he felt Diana's presence during the rebuilding process he and his wife went through.
He also said she would have been "very angry and very sad" about the couple's treatment by the royal family.
He told Oprah: "I brought what my mum left me.
"And without that, we would not have been able to do this, so touching back on what my mother would think of this, I think she saw it coming. I certainly felt her presence throughout this whole process.
"I think she would feel very angry with how this has panned out and very sad, but ultimately, all she’d ever want is for us to be happy."
Princess Diana died in a car accident in Paris on August 31, 1997.
Harry's mum recorded her own controversial tell-all interview in 1995 which did not go down well in royal quarters.
In the highly anticipated chat with Oprah, Meghan claimed sister-in-law Kate Middleton made her cry while the couple reveal the sex of their second child.
Alluding to his mother's tragic death, Harry touched on his fear that "history would repeat itself" after Diana was killed while being pursued by the paparazzi.
Princess Diana recorded her bombshell interview with Martin Bashir alone, and Harry said he was "relieved" that he had Meghan by his side throughout the process.

He said he 'can't imagine what it must have been like for her' during the BBC interview and that it has been "unbelievably tough" for him and Meghan.
Before the interview aired, Prince Charles is said to have been "saddened" by the couple's decision to go public.
A source told the Daily Mirror: "The overriding feeling throughout this whole sorry saga is one where many people, especially the Prince of Wales and Duke of Cambridge, have been left immensely saddened.
"There is a distinct feeling inside the camp there must have been a better way to solve the issues by coming together, rather than the nuclear decision that has resulted in everything being discussed so publicly and without reason.
"When all is said and done, no one is likely to come off smelling of roses."
Watch the full interview on ITV at 9pm on Monday night and on ITV Hub, Courtesy of Harpo Productions/CBS.
