Meghan Markle and Prince Harry revealed during their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey that the Duchess of Sussex had suicidal impulses, but in a new documentary that aired on Friday, the Duke of Sussex said his pregnant wife didn’t act because she didn’t want him to be hurt by the loss of another woman in his life.
“The thing that stopped her from seeing it through was how unfair it would be on me after everything that had happened to my mum and to now be put in a position of losing another woman in my life, with a baby inside of her, our baby,” he told Oprah in “The Me You Can’t See,” a new Apple TV+ series on mental health.
Prince Harry lost the first woman in his life … his mom, who died in a Paris car crash in 1997 when he was only 12yrs. The British royal who now lives in the USA emphasised that Meghan didn’t act on her deadly thought to avoid history from repeating.
“The scariest thing for her was her clarity of thought. She hadn’t ‘lost it.’ She wasn’t crazy. She wasn’t self-medicating, be it through pills or through alcohol. She was absolutely sober. She was completely sane. Yet in the quiet of night, these thoughts woke her up,” Harry said of his pregnant wife.
He added, “That was one of the biggest reasons to leave, feeling trapped and feeling controlled through fear, both by the media and by the system itself, which never encouraged the talking about this kind of trauma. Certainly now, I will never be bullied into silence.”
