The royal family has yet to respond to accusations from the couple, including that one of its members questioned how dark their baby’s skin would be, and that palace officials refused requests from the Duchess of Sussex for medical help when she felt suicidal.
Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle aired Sunday night, giving a shocking look at life at the palace and life away from the royal monarchy.
“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. I was silent —” “Were you silent or were you silenced?” “The latter. They didn’t want him to be a prince or princess, not knowing what the gender would be, which would be different from protocol, and that he wasn’t going to receive security.” “What?” “It was really hard.” “What do you mean?” “He wasn’t going to receive security? This went on for the last few months of our pregnancy where I’m going, ‘Hold on a second.’” “That your son and Harry, Prince Harry’s son, was not going to receive security?” “That’s right. And also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.” “What?” “And —” “Who — who is having that conversation … … with you? What?” “But I knew that if I didn’t say it, that I would do it. And I just didn’t — I just didn’t want to be alive anymore.” “Well, the way you’re describing this, it’s like you were trapped and couldn’t get help, even though you’re on the verge of suicide. That’s what you are describing. That’s what I’m hearing.” “Yes.” “And that would be an accurate interpretation, yes?” “That’s the truth.” “And what I was seeing was history repeating itself, but more perhaps, or definitely far more dangerous, because then you add race in, and you add social media in — and when I’m talking about history repeating itself I’m talking about my mother. When you can see something happening in the same kind of way, anybody would ask for help, ask the system of which you are part of, especially when you know there’s a relationship there that they could help, and share some truth or call the dogs off, whatever you want to call it.” “Your dad stopped taking your calls. Why did he stop taking your calls?” “Because I took matters in — by that point, I took matters into my own hands. It was like, I need to do this for my family. This is not a surprise to anybody. It’s really sad that it’s got to this point. But I’ve got to do something for my own mental health, my wife’s, and for Archie’s as well, because I could see where this was headed.”
A year after Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in a fairy-tale wedding, she said in an extraordinary interview broadcast on Sunday night, her life as a member of the British royal family had become so emotionally desolate that she contemplated suicide.
At another point, members of the family told Harry and Meghan, a biracial former actress from the United States, that they did not want the couple’s unborn child, Archie, to be a prince or princess, and expressed concerns about how dark the color of the baby’s skin would be.
An emotional but self-possessed Meghan said of her suicidal thoughts: “I was ashamed to have to admit it to Harry. I knew that if I didn’t say it, I would do it. I just didn’t want to be alive anymore.”
Meghan, 39, made the disclosures in an eagerly anticipated, and at times incendiary, interview on CBS with Oprah Winfrey that aired in the United States in prime time. The interview was broadcast at 9 p.m. Monday on ITV in Britain.
In describing a royal life that began as a fairy tale but quickly turned suffocating and cruel, Meghan’s blunt answers raised the combustible issues of race and privilege in the most rarefied echelon of British society.
