In the interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan Markle has accused the British Royal family of racism, lying, and pushing her to the verge of suicide.
The 39-year-old, whose mother is Black and father is white, has said she had been naive before marrying into the royal family in 2018, and that she ended up having suicidal thoughts and considering self-harm after pleading for help but getting none.
The two-hour interview is the biggest royal interview since Harry’s mother Princess Diana detailed her crumbling marriage to his father Prince Charles in 1995.
