  • Prince Harry joined James Corden on a double-decker bus as the two explored the Duke and Duchess' new hometown.
  • Harry got candid as he spoke about his decision to leave the royal family. "It was stepping back, rather than stepping down."
  • Harry said he keeps in touch with his grandparents via Zoom, sharing the special gift the queen sent Archie over Christmas.

Prince Harry's interview with James Corden is finally here – and the Duke of Sussex joined the talk show host on a double-decker as they explored Los Angeles.

Harry hilariously dropped the f-bomb when the two tried having tea atop the moving bus and made a pit stop – and a wee! – at the house where The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was filmed.

Though Meghan made an appearance via Facetime too, lovingly calling her husband "Haz" as they spoke of buying the mansion, the prince also got candid about the tabloids and said of the couple's decision to exit the firm: "It was never walking away. It was stepping back, rather than stepping down."

He added: "It was a really difficult environment, as I think a lot of people saw. We all know what the British press can be like. And it was destroying my mental health. I was like, 'This is toxic.' So I did what any husband, and any father would do. I was like 'I need to get my family out of here.' But we never walked away. And as far as I'm concerned, whatever decisions are made on that side, I will never walk away."

During the chat, he shared he and Meghan are in touch with the royal family, having regular chats with his grandparents via Zoom.

The queen even sent a special gift for Archie, which Meghan said she knew he'd want, over the Christmas holidays: a waffle maker.

He said: "Archie literally wakes up in the morning and goes: 'Waffle?!'"
