The mindblowing interview of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry with Oprah Winfrey has ignited mixed reactions across the globe.
Meghan revealed that she struggled with suicidal thoughts after marrying Harry in a colourful wedding ceremony on May 19, 2018 in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in the United Kingdom.
During the interview, Meghan told Oprah that she thought committing suicide, “would have solved everything for everyone”. She was pregnant at the time.
‘I was ashamed to say it at the time and ashamed to have to admit it to Harry especially because I know how much loss he has suffered. But I knew that if I didn’t say it, then I would do it. I just didn’t want to be alive anymore. That was clear and real and frightening and constant though,’ said emotional Meghan.

The power couple talked about many other things among them racism, which has caused an uproar on social media.
The mother of one revealed that the royal family was ready to deny her child the royal title because of the skin colour.
‘THEY SAID THAT HE/SHE WAS NOT GOING TO BE A PRINCE OR PRINCESS DEPENDING ON THE GENDER WHEN BORN. THAT WOULD BE A DIFFERENT PROTOCOL FROM WHAT IS NORMALLY FOLLOWED. THERE WERE ALSO CONVERSATIONS ON HOW DARK HE/SHE WOULD BE WHEN BORN. THEY EVEN SAID THEY WOULD NOT PROVIDE. SECURITY FOR HIM/HER. ‘THEY SAID MY BABY WOULD NEVER BE ROYAL IF BORN BLACK.’
The two left the UK a year ago and are no longer senior working members of the Royal Family.
