Meghan Markle reacts to reports she made Kate Middleton cry days to her wedding as Prince Harry reveals his family cut him off .Says she contemplated suicide before leaving royal family

Meghan Markle finally addressed the incident that happened days to her wedding where the press claimed she made her sister-in-law Kate Middleton cry.

Oprah Winfrey asked the Duchess of Sussex about headlines written about her and the Duchess of Cambridge, including one story alleging Meghan made Kate cry.

“The reverse happened,” Meghan told Winfrey.

Meghan later added that Kate had “really hurt my feelings” a few days before the wedding, but that she had apologized and is “a good person”.

She said It was not a “confrontation” and it would not be “fair” to Kate to go into detail. But she added that it was “hard to get over” being blamed for something she did not do.

“Everyone in the institution knew that wasn’t true,” she continued, and said she hoped Kate “would have wanted that to be corrected”.

Asked if she thinks there was a separate standard for her and Kate, and if so why, Meghan said: “I don’t know why. I can see now what layers were at play there.

“And again they really seemed to want a narrative of a hero and a villain.”

Prince Harry also revealed that his family cut him off when he stepped down as a working member of the royal family and he had to rely on the inheritance his mum, Princess Diana left him.

He said: “My family literally cut me off financially. And I had to afford security for us.”

He explained that he was cut off in the first quarter of 2020.

He continued: “But, I’ve got what my mum left me and without that, we would not have been able to do this.”

Asked by Winfrey why they chose to step down from their roles as senior royals, Harry said: “Lack of support. And lack of understanding.”

Harry denied that he “blindsided” the Queen with the news, saying he has “too much respect” for his grandmother, and said they have a good relationship.”

However, he said that his father, Prince Charles, had “stopped taking my calls” at one point when he left the UK.

Asked about the “tipping point” which led to the couple leaving, Harry said he was “desperate”.

He continued: “I went to all the places which I thought I should go to, to ask for help – we both did, separately and together.”

Winfrey asked: “You left because you were asking for help, and didn’t get it?”

Harry replied: “Yeah. Basically. But we never left.” Meghan added: “We never left the family.”

Harry told Winfrey he feels “really let down” by his father, the Prince of Wales “because he’s been through something similar, he knows what pain feels like, [and] Archie’s his grandson.

“But at the same time – I will always love him – but there’s a lot of hurt that’s happened and I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship.

“But they only know what they know, or what they’re told.”

Asked whether he would have stepped down from his role if not for Meghan, Harry said “no”.

He continued: “I myself was trapped. I didn’t see a way out. I was trapped but I didn’t know I was trapped.”

Winfrey pushed Harry to explain, to which he replied: “Trapped within the system, like the rest of my family are. My father and my brother, they are trapped. They don’t get to leave.”

Harry said he has “huge compassion” for his father and brother’s circumstances.

Asked by Winfrey what his mother, Diana, would say if she was alive, Harry said: “I think she would feel very angry with how this has panned out, and very sad.”

Speaking about his relationship with his brother, William, Harry said that at the moment it is “space”.

Meanwhile, In a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan Markle said she contemplated suicide while in the royal family and she had asked officials at Buckingham Palace for medical help but was told it would damage the institution.

Meghan said of her suicidal thoughts: “I was ashamed to have to admit it to Harry. I knew that if I didn’t say it, I would do it.”

Meghan admitted to Oprah that she would have committed suicide and since the royal family won’t help her, she turned to a friend of Princess Diana’s for help.

She said she struggled with her mental health due to the intense pressures of being in the Royal Family, and that she had suicidal thoughts.

“I just didn’t want to be alive any more,” she said.

“And that was a very clear and real and frightening constant thought. And I remember, I remember how [Harry] just cradled me and I was… I went to the institution, and I said that I needed to go somewhere to get help. I said that I’ve never felt this way before and I need to go somewhere. And I was told that I couldn’t, that it wouldn’t be good for the institution.”

She said Harry was there for her and constantly held her tightly whenever they were in the public to reassure her.

Meghan also revealed she is “haunted” by a photograph of herself at a red carpet event at the Royal Albert Hall in January 2019, which the couple attended just after she had the conversation with Harry.

“A friend said, ‘I know you don’t look at pictures, but oh my god, you guys look so great’, and sent it to me,” the duchess said. “I zoomed in and what I saw was the truth of what that moment was, because right before we had to leave for that, I had just had that conversation with Harry that morning.”

Meghan said Harry suggested she did not attend the event, but that she did not want to be left alone.

“And we went. And that picture, if you zoom in, what I see is how tightly his knuckles are gripped around me. You can see the whites of our knuckles because we are smiling and doing our job, but we are both just trying to hold on.

“Every time those lights went down in that royal box, I was just weeping.

“[Harry] was gripping my hand and it was, ‘Okay an intermission’s coming, the lights are about to come on, everyone’s looking at us again’ … and you had to just be ‘on’ again.

“You have no idea what’s going on for someone behind closed doors. You’ve no idea. Even the people that smile the biggest smiles and shine the brightest lights, it seems.”
