Important revelations from Prince Harry’s latest bombing interview on US TV
About the call of the Sussex for help to the royal family
I thought my family would help, but every question, every request, every warning, whatever it is just got total silence, total neglect. We’ve been trying to make it work for four years. We made every effort to stay there and continue the role and work. But Meghan struggled. ‘
About Harry’s family who ‘stopped’ them from quitting
‘That feeling of being stuck in the family, there was no option to leave. When I finally made that decision for my family, I was still told, “You can’t do this,” and it’s like, “How bad does it have to get before I can do this?” They [Meghan] would end her life. It shouldn’t come to that. ‘
About Meghan’s wish to ‘end her life’
Meghan decided to share with me the thoughts of suicide and the practicalities of how she would end her life.
‘What kept her from going through it was how unfair it would be for me after all that had happened to my mom and being put in a position so far where I would lose another woman in my life – with a baby in her, our baby.
The scariest thing for her was her clear thoughts. She hadn’t “lost” it. She was not a fool. She did not self-medicate, be it through pills or alcohol. She was absolutely sober. She was completely healthy. ‘
About the parenting of Prince Charles
“My dad used to say to me when I was younger, he said to William and I, ‘Well, it was like that for me, so it will be like that for you, too,’ ‘Prince Harry says in the new documentary. .
‘That makes no sense. Just because you have suffered does not mean that your children have to suffer, quite the contrary.
“If you have suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences you have had, you can make up for your children.”
On ‘smears’ from ‘The Firm’
Before the Oprah interview aired, because of the combined efforts of The Firm and the media to smear her, I was woken up in the middle of the night by her crying in her pillow because she didn’t want to wake me up because I’m already wearing too much. That is heartbreaking. ‘
And try to mend the relationship
“I like to think we were able to speak truths in the most compassionate way, leaving an opening for reconciliation and healing.”
Prince William’s first son, Prince George, is next in line, followed by his daughter Princess Charlotte and then his second son, Prince Louis.
Prince Harry, who would have been third in line to the throne before the birth of his brother’s children, is now sixth in line to the throne. He and Meghan’s son, Archie, are seventh in the line of succession.
In his new five-part AppleTV + docuseries starring Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry dropped another nuclear ‘truth bomb’ on the royal family, accusing them of ‘total silence’ and ‘neglect’ when Meghan was suicidal, claiming that his father Prince Charles had him made ‘suffering’ as a child and insisting that he would not be ‘silenced’ when he claimed that ‘The Firm’ had ‘set them up’, smeared and dumped them.
In candid interviews, the Duke of Sussex said he and his wife felt abandoned by his relatives and that this was one of their “ biggest reasons ” for moving to California last year.
He told Oprah, ‘Certainly now I will never be silenced,’ adding, ‘I thought my family would help, but every question, every request, every warning, whatever it is, just got to deal with with total silence, total neglect.
‘We’ve been trying to make it work for four years.
‘We have done everything we can to stay there and continue to fulfill the role and the job. But Meghan struggled. ‘
He added: ‘That feeling of being trapped in the family, there was no option to leave.
When I finally made that decision for my family, I was still told, ‘You can’t do this,’ and it’s like, ‘How bad does it have to get before I can do this? ‘. They [Meghan] would end her life. It shouldn’t come to that. ‘
It comes after a source close to the royal family claimed that Prince William does not believe he is ‘stuck’ in the system of the British monarchy and Prince Harry’s suggestions that he is ‘far from the mark’.
Instead, the Duke of Cambridge, who comes to the throne behind his father, has ‘accepted’ his role and ‘the path set before him,’ say royal sources.
“ He is very much his grandmother’s grandson in that respect of duty and service, ” said the source, who is close to both brothers, Sunday Times.
It comes after royal pundit Lady Colin Campbell launched a petition urging Prince Harry to ask the queen to suspend his royal titles.
The royal expert claimed that the suspension of his titles would ‘free Harry to indulge himself without harming the institution of the monarchy’.
Speak to the Daily star, she explained: “I started it because I think it’s the right thing to do.
‘I have spoken to people, many people, who think that it is the right thing to do and that it is the solution.
And since then, more than 20,000 people have signed the petition.
It states, ‘The aim is to invite Prince Harry to voluntarily ask the Queen to suspend his royal style, titles and rank, freeing him from the diplomatic, political and constitutional constraints that are an inevitable part of the royal rank, and further liberate him from the constitutional conflicts that cause his beliefs, with all their implications at home and abroad, particularly in the United Kingdom and the United States of America, where his expressed beliefs are openly inconsistent with the accepted teachings of both the Kingdom and American constitutions. ‘
As a purely private citizen, with no royal rank, style or title, he will be able to live out his personal beliefs, just like the right of all private citizens, without the consequent possibility of establishing the monarchy or Relations between Friendly Powers, and will be free to articulate beliefs, however reprehensible, without the consequences otherwise inevitable, as long as he holds royal status.
His invitation to The Sovereign, which is of his own accord, will resolve conflicts that would otherwise be inevitable, and will enable him to enjoy the honor of putting both national and international interests above his own, personal interests, in the process. to gain him respect that he otherwise wouldn’t enjoy. ‘
