Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, were interviewed in a much-anticipated sit-down with Oprah Winfrey where they discussed the nightmare that has been their life for the past several years since they stepped away from their royal duties.
Harry’s relationship with his father has been torn. Harry admitted that his father “stopped taking my calls,” and, “I feel very let down because he’s been through something similar. He knows what pain feels like. And Archie is his grandson,” Harry said. However, Prince Charles started taking his calls again. Harry said, “I will always love him. I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship.”
In the interview, they criticized the press for the tabloid stories which became the center of their lives up until present day. It was no surprise that British tabloids continued to write about Meghan and Harry after the interview. “Meghan Markle may never return to Britain after angering Royal Family with bombshell Oprah interview,” The Sun newspaper wrote.
Tabloid newspapers such as the Sun and the Daily Mail have made it their life’s mission to criticize Meghan.
Meghan discussed, “in the months when I was pregnant…we have in tandem the conversation of he won’t be given security, he’s not going to be given a title, and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”
The couple primarily focused on how they were treated by the royal family, including Meghan discussing her suicidal thoughts while she was a working member of the royal family stating she, “just didn’t want to be alive anymore.”
Harry reiterated that Meghan did not receive any support from the family, “It was not a conversation to be had.” She initially did not want to tell Harry, but, “I knew that if I didn’t say it, that I would do it, and I just didn’t want to be alive anymore.”
Harry and Meghan revealed they are expecting a daughter this summer.
