When there is no more, there is still. On her website, The Oprah Magazine, Oprah Winfrey unveiled this Monday, March 8, a cut scene from her interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. In this excerpt, which lasts a little over a minute, the Duchess of Sussex tells how she has lost control over her private life since she met Prince Harry.

The former Suits actress claims her right to privacy: “I think everyone has a fundamental right to privacy,” says Archie’s mom to Oprah, before illustrating her point with an example from everyday life: “If you’re at work and there’s a picture of your child on your desk and one of your colleagues says, ‘Oh, my God, your kid is so cute. That’s fantastic. Can I take your phone and see all the pictures of him?” “You’re going to say ‘no, that’s the only picture I’m comfortable sharing with you,'” she explained.

She then continued her reflection by drawing a direct parallel with the many invasions of her privacy she has suffered, especially from photographers: “They insist: ‘No, but you’ve already shown me this one. You have to show me everything. You know what, I’ll just hire someone to sit in front of your house or hide in the bushes, and take pictures in your backyard. You’ve lost your right to privacy… because you shared an image with me.”

A question of limits and respect

If Meghan assures, that she and her husband, understand well that it is impossible for them to maintain total privacy as public figures, the couple nevertheless wishes to keep a hand on their privacy by sharing only the “parts of their lives” with which they are “comfortable”: “There is no one on Instagram or social networks that would tell you ‘because I shared this picture, it gives you the right to have access to my entire photo album. Go ahead and look at it.” Nobody would want that. So it’s about boundaries. And it’s a question of respect,” defended Meghan Markle who does not want to relive these bad experiences for her second pregnancy.
