Oprah said the couple had revealed “some pretty shocking things” – some of which seemed “almost unsurvivable”.
The famous talk-show host also wanted to make it “clear to everybody there is no subject that is off limits”.
Holding hands with his Meghan, Harry said: “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 have been like for her, going through this process by herself. All those years ago.
“Because it’s been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we had each other.”
My biggest concern was history repeating itself.”
Meghan is then heard saying: “Yeah.”
Oprah is heard asking Meghan: “Were you silent, or were you silenced?
“I just want to make it clear to everybody there is no subject that is off limits.
“Almost unsurvivable, sounds like there was a breaking point.”
Harry replied: “My biggest concern was history repeating itself.”
Oprah said: “You’ve said some pretty shocking things here. Wait, hold up, wait a minute.”

It’s been reported the Queen was “blindsided” by Harry and Meghan’s announcement of a “tell-all” interview with Oprah.
The royal couple apparently failed to inform the monarch of their plans before revealing they’ll chat to the American chat show host.
And she only learned of it when US TV network CBS hurriedly issued a statement on Monday – after a producer working for Ms Winfrey mistakenly alerted ITV of the plans, the Mail on Sunday reported.
Members of the Royal family usually run potential TV interview opportunities past the Queen in advance.
The couple sat down with Ms Winfrey to record the chat last Tuesday, it’s understood.
Harry and Meghan were forced to reveal the interview ahead of schedule after ITV were tipped off.
The couple are believed to have spoken about marriage, parenthood, life as royals and their charity work during the discussion.
Oprah’s very rare sit-down interview with Prince Harry and Meghan is scheduled to air on CBS on March 7.
