Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gave themselves a heart-to-heart in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired on CBS on Sunday, March 7.

It was the most eagerly awaited interview. This Sunday, March 7, CBS unveiled the truthful interview given to Oprah Winfrey by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. In it, they confided about their new life in the United States but also talked about their departure from the royal family. The Duchess of Sussex, initially interviewed alone, revealed: “I just didn’t want to be alive anymore. And these were constant, terrifying, real and very clear thoughts. The reason? The British tabloid press.

This one mentioned the racist and defamatory attacks to which it was subjected on numerous occasions. She then confessed that she thought that her suicide “would solve everyone’s problems. I didn’t see a solution. Look, I was really ashamed to have to say it at the time, and ashamed to have to admit it to Harry in particular, but I knew that if I didn’t say anything, I would hurt myself,” she says. She also looks back on a night in 2019 when she went to a Cirque du Soleil performance with her husband.

“I remember him saying, ‘I don’t think you can go to the party,’ and I said, ‘I can’t go alone. We went there and if you zoom in on the pictures of us at that party, you see his hand clinging firmly to mine. We’re smiling and we’re doing our job, but we’re just trying to stand up,” she says, before indicating that she “spent the evening crying when the lights went out.

Meghan Markle shared her suicidal thoughts with the royal family, but explained that she couldn’t count on them. “I asked for help and discussed the possibility of medical care and was told that I couldn’t, that it wouldn’t be good for the institution,” she said. But she was able to count on Prince Harry to be at her side: “I didn’t know what to do. I wasn’t prepared for it. It was a dark time for me too.

And I wanted to be there for her. I was terrified,” he said at first. Like his wife, he says he couldn’t talk to members of the royal family or palace staff about it: “No. It’s not a conversation we could have. I guess I was ashamed to tell them that. I don’t know if it was thoughts or feelings that they had had as well. I have no idea. It’s an environment where you feel trapped, where a lot of them are stuck”. He goes on to say, “Yes, I had no one to turn to. If Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wanted to talk openly about their feelings, it was also so that “people would remember that, because you have no idea what happens to someone behind closed doors,” she concludes.

A brother or sister for Archie?

During this interview, the couple took the opportunity to reveal the sex of their second child. “It’s a girl,” said Prince Harry, visibly delighted to become a father for the second time. He then said: “I’m grateful, having a child, no matter the sex, would have been great. But to have a boy and then a girl, what more could you ask for,” he concluded.
