Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's explosive Oprah interview misses out on Emmy to Stanley Tucci's food show

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle's explosive Oprah interview has lost out on an Emmy Award to Stanley Tucci's Italian food show – just days after it was booed at the NTAs.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's bombshell chat with Oprah Winfrey was up against Stanley Tucci: Searching For Italy and My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman, in the best hosted nonfiction series category.

The interview, which was watched by more than 49million people globally in the first three days, saw the couple raise a number of controversial issues concerning their life in the Royal Family.

They claimed a member of the family had spoken of their concern about the colour baby Archie's skin would be.

And Harry spoke of the rift between him and his father, which at one point led to Prince Charles "not taking may calls".

The couple also accused Buckingham Palace of playing down Meghan's suicidal thoughts and said they decided to step away from royal life as a result of the issues.

But despite sending shock waves through the monarchy, the CBS interview was beaten by Tucci's six part CNN series on Sunday.

The program sees the actor travel around Italy trying various dishes and unveiling guarded secrets about the land.

Neither Harry nor Meghan attended Sunday's low-key ceremony for creative arts, which precedes the main Emmy Awards show next week.

It comes after the couple was booed when a clip of their interview with Oprah Winfrey was shown in a montage of the best national TV moments at the NTAs last week.

Sir Trevor McDonald introduced the series of clips on stage, which featured some of the biggest moments of the past 12 months.

As a clip of Harry and Meghan’s blockbuster interview in March was shown, the packed out crowd in London’s O2 arena was heard loudly booing.

The booing was not picked up by ITV's live broadcast.
