Prince Harry and his wife’s in-depth interview with Oprah Winfrey finally aired over the weekend. One of the shocking confessions the duchess made had something to do with the Royal Family.


Last week, CBS released some trailers of Oprah Winfrey's interview titled “Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special.” In it, the media mogul spoke to Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan.

On Sunday, March 7, 2021, the shocking two-hour-long special finally aired. In it, the royal couple discussed their son Archie not having a prince title, their relationship with the Queen, growing their family, and more.

The couple also spoke about their relationship with the Royal Family. According to Hello! magazine, Markle, 39, revealed that she had one big regret from her time in the British Royal Family, stating:

"My regret is believing them when they said I would be protected, I believed that."


Harry’s wife added, “I regret believing that because I think had I really seen that that wasn't happening…” She felt she could’ve done more but noted that she wasn’t meant to see it ahead of time.


The Duchess of Sussex allegedly felt she and her husband were now clear of it all by being on the other side. She reportedly noted that they were thriving and that she felt this was the beginning for them.


Markle also noted how they’d been through a lot; that it felt like a lifetime. Apparently, she also shared that Duchess Kate once made her cry after having a trying week ahead of her wedding day.

During her interview, she also confessed that being royalty affected her mental health badly. She admitted to media mogul Winfrey that she had struggled with thoughts of suicide.


The Duchess explained that she’d felt ashamed to admit her thoughts to her husband at the time. However, she knew not speaking up about her feelings would’ve led her to act on them.

She shared that she just didn’t want to be alive any longer. Markle confessed that she figured suicide would have solved everything for all those involved in her situation.

She recalled how Harry had cradled her when she told him the truth. Markle then spoke to some people in the Royal Family about what she was feeling, explaining that she needed to seek help.

For his part, Harry said he’d felt trapped in the family.


However, she was told she couldn’t go out and get help because it wouldn’t look good for the “institution.” The Duchess named “the institution” as several senior members in the Royal Family.

Despite speaking harshly about the struggles she faced in the Royal Family, the Duchess admitted that the Queen had always been wonderful to her. For his part, Harry said he’d felt trapped in the family.
