During the chat, Harry claimed his father Charles stopped taking his calls after Megxit and was financially cut off by the Royal Family last year.
The Duke of Sussex said there was a "lot of hurt" between him and his father – but insisted he had not “blindsided” the Queen when announcing he and Meghan were stepping back as senior working royals.
Judi told Fabulous: “Harry performed several gestures to suggest suppressed anger of his own, including an eye-stutter and a tongue-poke.
“His silence after some telling questions about his family had a drama of their own and although he smiled when William’s name was mentioned and said ‘I love him’ his mood changed when his father came up.
“Asked about Charles he performed a long pause and an eye-dart, and he also did a cut-off ritual and a head-shake before he spoke of ‘A lot of hurt’, pointing the finger to what sounded like a new target in terms of a family rift.”
He said his father, Prince Charles, stopped taking his phone calls for a period of time, saying: "When we were in Canada, I had three conversations with my grandmother and two conversations with my father, before he stopped taking my calls."

Despite any family tensions, Judi said Harry and Meghan’s bond looked stronger than ever.
She observed: “Meghan told us that Harry saved her. After the vulnerability and tears of her narrative we saw her splayed and smiling at this point, cradling her baby bump or resting her hand on her leg to feature her wedding ring.
“Harry’s smile turned to one of pride and his hand now capped hers with their fingers meshed to suggest unity and the strongest of bonds.”
The couple said they were now thriving in their new life, loving trips to the beach with son Archie while revealing they were expecting a little girl in the summer.
The explosive interview, conducted by talk-show powerhouse Oprah, aired on CBS in the US on Sunday night, and will be shown in the UK on ITV on Monday at 9pm.
The “primetime special” with Meghan and Harry was initially set to last 90 minutes, but CBS extended it to two hours.
Meghan and Harry signed up for the interview to have the freedom to "speak their truth".
Oprah confirmed ahead of the two-hour special airing that "no subject is off-limits”.
In a dramatic preview of their tell-all interview, Harry said that his "biggest concern was history repeating itself" in a hint towards his mother's own struggle in the Firm.
Meghan cradled her baby bump while the host asked her whether she was "silent, or silenced" by the Royal Family.
And the Duchess of Sussex also accused Buckingham Palace of “perpetuating falsehoods”.
In the clip, released by CBS, Meghan claims she wasn’t even allowed to speak to Oprah in 2018 without someone listening in.
A clearly angry Meghan said: “I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.
“And if that comes with risk of losing things, there is a lot that has been lost already.”

THE ‘SECRET MEANING’ BEHIND MEGHAN’S OPRAH DRESS REVEALED
Meghan Markle chose a dress with a secret meaning for her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, it is claimed.
The Telegraph claimed that the £3,600 long triple silk georgette dress features a lotus flower design, which Meghan chose for its “symbolic meaning of revival”.
They wrote: “The lotus flower’s daily resurrection is considered proof of its determination and will to live.
“The Duchess understands that a lotus seed can withstand thousands of years without water, able to germinate over two centuries later.
“This ‘refusal to accept defeat’ is very much how she sees her own battle against the pressures of royal life.”
The royal couple apparently failed to inform the monarch of their plans to chat to the American chat show host.
News of the big interview emerged after the couple announced Meghan's third pregnancy – and days before Buckingham Palace confirmed the pair will never return as senior royals.
Members of the Royal family usually run potential TV interview opportunities past the Queen in advance.
A global TV audience of hundreds of millions in 70 countries is expected to watch the interview.
Royal insiders said members of the family were not planning to stay up until 1am, when the Stateside interview will be screened UK time.
Instead, the Queen will be given a breakfast briefing by aides this morning.
Sources close to her said she will continue to focus on national issues this week.
