Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Emmy nomination category will not be televised, it is reported.

The 36 year old and his 39 year old wife have been nominated in the Outstanding Hosted Notification Series or Special category at the prestigious awards ceremony for their sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey.

However, in a fresh blow for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, it is believed the category will be cut from the televised ceremony as there are too many awards to get through.

There are a whopping 119 categories at the Emmy Awards, with only a handful of awards being announced on the night.

The official website of the International Documentary Association explains: "Next to the Oscars, the Emmys are the most prestigious awards in Hollywood.

"Everyone has seen the Emmys on television but the Emmy broadcast shows only a small number of the actual awards."

The winner for the category is expected to be announced in the days leading to the televised ceremony and then shown in a fast recap.


Oprah with Harry and Meghan: A CBS Primetime Special is nominated against the likes of Netflix's My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, CNN's Stanley Tucci: Searching For Italy and United Shades of America with Kamau Bell, and Showtime's Vice.

Brits are expected to do very well at the awards ceremony, which will take place in September, with The Crown scoring 11 nominations, I May Destroy You being nominated for six awards, and Bridgerton fighting for three.

It was during their interview with Oprah that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex claimed a member of the Royal Family had "concerns" over how dark the colour of their son Archie's skin would be.

Meghan also said she had suicidal thoughts while being an active senior member of the family but was denied help when she asked for it.

She also claimed Prince William's wife Kate Middleton made her cry days before her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018, but "owned it" and apologised.

Another claim Meghan made involved her marriage to Harry, as she told Oprah they were married in a secret ceremony in their garden three days before the televised "spectacle" at Windsor.

However, the Archbishop of Canterbury has since spoken out to deny these claims, explaining that the legal wedding took place on 19 May 2018.

Despite being celebrated by critics and being nominated for the award, the documentary received over 5,000 Ofcom complaints in the first month after its airing.
