My car makes a high-pitch sound when turning the wheel to the right, mostly on sharp right turns. It does not seem to make the sounds when turning right while the car is in reverse. There is no problem with the movement of the steering wheel.
When you have the steering wheel turned sharp, you may be putting excess strain on the power steering pump and belt which can cause the loyd screeching noise that you hear. I suggest having your belt inspected, it may be time to replace.

If the noise sounds like it's coming from under the hood, check the power steering fluid level. Your owner's manual will tell you how to do this. It may be that you're low on fluid.
If it sounds like it's coming from the wheel, have your CV joint checked. If the boot gets ripped, the grease comes out and the joint makes noise because it's dry. You need to get this fixed right away to avoid the axle breaking.
