During an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made some shocking revelations. They alleged racism in royal ranks, Meghan said she was denied help during her mental health crisis and a campaign of lies targeted her.
Among the announcements made in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Oprah Winfrey interview was the gender of their second child.
‘It’s a baby girl!’
“It’s a girl,” Prince Harry said. When Winfrey asked about his initial reaction to the gender, Prince Harry said, “Amazing. Just grateful. To have any child, any one or two, would be amazing. But to have a boy and then a girl, what more could you ask for? Now we’ve got our family, the four of us and our two dogs. It’s great.”
‘Didn’t want to be alive anymore…’
Meghan, 39, said the British press drove her to the point where life no longer seemed worth living.
“I knew that if I didn’t say it, that I would do it. And I… just didn’t want to be alive anymore. And that was a very clear and real and frightening constant thought,” she told Winfrey in the two-hour CBS spot.
Asked by Winfrey if she was having suicidal thoughts while pregnant with her first child, Meghan replied “Yes. This was very, very clear.”
Meghan said she approached the palace to tell them she was having a mental health crisis.
“I went to one of the most senior people just to — to get help,” she said. “I was told that I couldn’t, that it wouldn’t be good for the institution.”
Racism in the Royal Family
Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first son, Archie Harrison, in May 2019. During the Oprah interview, Markle said that while she was pregnant with son Archie, unidentified royals had “concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he is born.”
