Meghan Markle attacks the British royal house in an interview with her husband Harry to Oprah Winfrey. During the interview, broadcast as a world premiere by CBS, Meghan also reveals that she is pregnant, expecting a baby girl who will be born this summer. But what caused a sensation are above all the harsh accusations against the British royals, including the not too veiled one of racism, and the confession by Meghan that she had also thought about suicide. “I didn’t want to live anymore,” Meghan said of her mood.
According to her revelations, when she was still pregnant with the firstborn Archie a member of the royal family would have expressed concerns “about how dark her skin might be”. Meghan explained that she did not want to name who would utter these words, stressing that it would be “very harmful to them”. His words, in fact confirmed by Harry himself: “I will never share that conversation”, said the Duke of Sussex, adding that “at the time it was embarrassing, I was a bit shocked”.
Speaking of her severe depressive thoughts, Meghan said: “I just didn’t want to live anymore. And they were constant, terrifying, real and very clear thoughts.” But when she went to the ‘institution’ and I said I needed to get help, that I had never felt like this before … they told me I couldn’t, that it wouldn’t be good for the ‘institution”.
