“I Was Feeling Suicidal”- Meghan Markle Tells Oprah Winfrey



A tearful Meghan Markle said Sunday she contemplated suicide while pregnant with son Archie, amid the pressure of dealing with life as a royal and her treatment at the hands of the British media.

“I just didn’t want to be alive anymore,” the emotional duchess, 39, told Oprah Winfrey in her highly anticipated TV interview.

The former actress said she “just didn’t see a solution” given the barrage of negative reports about her.

“I would sit up at night, and I was just like, ‘I don’t understand how all of this is being churned out,’” she said.

She said her mother and friends, referring to the Palace, told her, ” ‘Meg, they’re not protecting you.’

“And I realized it was all happening just because I was breathing,” Markle said.

Winfrey asked her, “Were you thinking of harming yourself? Were you having suicidal thoughts?”

Markle replied, “Yes. This was very clear.”

She said she was scared to tell her husband Prince Harry but eventually did.

“I knew that if I didn’t say it that I would do it,” she said. “And that was a very clear and real and frightening constant thought.

“I remember how [Harry] just cradled me,” the duchess said.

Markle said she went to a senior member of the royal institution for help at one point but was rebuffed.

One on occasion, in January 2019, while she was pregnant with Archie, Markle said she went to an event at Royal Albert Hall against Harry’s advice because she was afraid of what she would do if left alone.

“I had just had that conversation with Harry that morning,” she said. “We had to go to this event, and I remember him saying, ‘I don’t mind,’ I said, ‘I can’t be left alone.’”

She said she sobbed while sitting in the royal box, only putting on a brave face for photos once the lights were turned on.

“If you zoom in, you can see how tightly his knuckles are gripped around mine. You can see the whites of our knuckles, because we are smiling and doing our job, but we’re both just trying to hold on,” Markle said.

“Everytime that those lights went dim that royal box, I was just weeping, and he was gripping my hand.”

The next day, Markle said she went to a senior member of the royal institution for help and the possibility of seeking professional care but was rebuffed because it “wouldn’t be good for the institution.”

Markle said she couldn’t exactly try to seek help herself, noting “I couldn’t, you know, call an Uber to the palace.”

The former royal also revealed Sunday night that members of the royal family discussed with Prince Harry how dark their son’s skin might be.

Markle spoke about learning her son would not be given the royal title of prince, either.



Hollywood A-listers ‘Avoiding Meghan And Harry’ To Stay In William And Kate’s Good Books




Hollywood celebrities, including their high-profile neighbors Steven Spielberg, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Rob Lowe, are eportedly staying away from exiled royals, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry over fears they could be alienated from the future King of England, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton.

The California couple were not even invited to Oprah Winfrey’s birthday party this year, despite her bombshell interview with the Sussexes in March 2021.

“Everyone’s got a movie to sell and a Broadway play they want to debut on screen in London or [London’s] West End and they know that Prince William and Kate — who are the biggest [celebrity] gets over there won’t show if they think someone is friends with Harry and Meghan,” NewsNatio senior story producer Paula Froelich told NewsNation Now’s host Nichole Berlie.

“My sources tell me it’s all about the money,” she added.

“And the big power players in Hollywood aren’t jeopardizing their business for Harry and Meghan.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who broke away from the royal family in 2020, were also snubbed by the White House when they were denied a flight on Air Force One when they tried to get a ride back to the US after Queen Elizabeth’s state funeral in September.

The White House reportedly worried that escorting the estranged royals with President Biden and first lady Jill Biden would strain relations with Britain.

Hollywood celebrities are also worried about the couple spilling their secrets, Froelich said.

“What if they dish on what’s in the refrigerator as well?” she said.

In his bestselling memoir, “Spare,” Harry wrote that while attending a party at Courtney Cox’s home in Los Angeles, an unnamed actor allegedly showed him a box of “black diamond mushroom chocolates” in Cox’s refrigerator.

“My mate and I grabbed several, gobbled them, washed them down with tequila,” he wrote before describing his hallucinations.

Cox denied that she provided the mushrooms, telling Variety, “I definitely wasn’t passing them out.”
