When she lived in the United Kingdom, things went so badly with Meghan that the British Prince Harry’s wife no longer wanted to live.
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired Sunday night in the US, Meghan said she wanted to seek help but was stopped by “the institute”.
The Duchess of Sussex remembered how embarrassed she was of her mental state and how difficult it was to admit it to her husband. Once she did, she indicated to a senior official that she wanted to seek professional help within the palace. However, he said that that “would not be a good look” for the palace.
She explained that as a prince’s wife, she couldn’t just go to a hospital or clinic on her own. “I just couldn’t. I couldn’t order an Uber at the palace, and it just doesn’t work that way. You hand in everything: my passport, my driver’s license, my keys.”
Harry stated that he did not know what to do at the time and suffered mentally as well. “I think I was ashamed to admit that,” he said of his wife’s mental health problems. That would also not be negotiable in his family. “There, the idea is always: that’s just the way it is. We all have to deal with this pressure.”
Harry says he feels sorry for his father, Charles, and brother William. He states that his father and brother are detained in the institution that is the Royal House. “Just like I was once stuck in it without realizing it. But they can’t leave.”
Despite the compassion for his family’s situation, the prince also said he was very disappointed in the Windsors. They never supported him and his wife when she was the victim of racist attacks, said Harry. “There were so many opportunities to assist us. But no one in my family has ever said anything about it.”
According to Prince Harry, his family is weighed down by the pressure of the British media. “I am absolutely aware of how afraid my family members are that the tabloids will turn against them,” said the Duke of Sussex, explaining that there is an “invisible contract” between the family and the press, who need each other. He suggested that fear prevented his family from taking action against racist stories about his wife and their family in the media.
