Has anyone else yet to hear about Harry and Meghan Markle’s Oprah interview? This interview had a worldwide impact and is still being discussed.
Harry and Meghan left the royal family some time ago, but most people assumed this “leave” would be secret. This was the polar opposite!
Meghan appears to have been a miserable woman, and she decided to speak publicly. Did she realise the significance of her words?
They no longer have to be concerned about what they say and don’t say because they are no longer members of the royal family. That’s most likely why they chose to talk. Was this the best choice?
The two levelled various severe allegations against the royal family, including racism. Meghan was the one who spoke the most and made the most charges during the interview.
We applaud Meghan Markle for speaking out about her experiences of suicidal thoughts. We know that opening up in this way can be really difficult, but when high profile people talk about these experiences, it helps to break down the stigma around mental health issues. 1/3 pic.twitter.com/XeBLXitIMn

Meghan stated that following her marriage to Harry in 2018, various family issues hurt her emotionally. She admitted to wanting to commit suicide to avoid suffering.
“I didn’t want to be alive,” Meghan told Oprah. “And that was a very obvious, real, and frightening thought.”
She also stated that the family had had multiple discussions concerning Archie’s skin tone when he was born. Archie’s lack of white complexion would have concerned the royal family.
The couple chose not to identify names but stated that a specific person was highly concerned about this matter. These words allowed the opportunity for interpretation among the public because each of us imagined a member of the royal family thinking these things.
Meghan’s comments make the royal family appear racist. Some believe Meghan is telling the truth, and others think she is lying.
Many people were also expecting a message from the royal family or maybe Queen Elizabeth.

“The whole family is heartbroken to learn the full depth of how tough the last several years have been for Harry and Meghan,” the queen said. The concerns presented, particularly those touching on race, are troubling. While some recollections may differ, they are taken very seriously and will be handled personally by the family. “Harry, Meghan, and Archie will always be adored family members.”
Prince Willian was quiet at first but later stated, “We are not a racist family.” He also said that he has yet to speak with Harry but intends to do so soon.
We may not know exactly what happened, but Meghan’s comments on racism and mental health should be taken seriously to let others know that they are not alone in similar situations and that everything will be alright!
