Meghan Markle broke the silence in an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which she said she had suicidal thoughts during her first years of marriage to Prince Harry.
“I don’t want to live anymore,” she recalled that she told her husband, one of the heirs to the British throne, at one point, and that she even considered taking her own life, as she told in the interview broadcast this Sunday exclusively by the chain CBS.
The Duchess of Sussex said that when she was pregnant with her son Archie there were “concerns and conversations within the royal family about how dark his skin might be when he was born.”
Meghan declined to say who had this conversation with Prince Harry, which he relayed to her, saying that revealing his name would be “very damaging.” She also said that while pregnant she learned that her baby would not have Palace security nor would it be a prince.
For his part, Prince Harry revealed that they will have a girl, who will be born next summer, and that they will not have any more babies. He also revealed that he decided to withdraw from royal duties for lack of “support and understanding.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex resigned from royal duties in March 2020 over what they described as intrusions and racist attitudes by British media towards the Duchess.
Holding hands, the couple sat across from Winfrey as she questioned them in a lush garden. The couple lives in Montecito, California, where the famous journalist also lives.
