The interview-event kept its promises: interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, the queen of American talk shows, Sunday, March 7, on the CBS channel, Meghan Markle, 39, and her husband, Prince Harry, 36, have launched some grenades pegged against the British royal family, which this one will probably have difficulty in warding off, and which give the image of an excessively traditionalist, even institutionally racist institution, incapable of having a transplant with a young American actress of mixed race.
With teary eyes, a low bun and a long black silk dress, Meghan said she had felt so isolated and unsupported by her prestigious adopted family, after being “Silenced”, that she had “Suicidal thoughts” at five months of pregnancy.
“It’s after we got married [en mai 2018] that everything got worse, when I realized that I will not be protected and that they [l’entourage de la famille royale] were willing to lie to protect other members of the royal family ”, Meghan added.
It was not Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, she further claimed, who had cried following an argument between the two women over Meghan’s wedding preparations – but she, contrary to what British tabloids reported. The American admitted in passing that she had been « naïve » and not having inquired before joining the Windsor family in 2017.
Archie’s “skin color”
Harry, in a clear suit and serious demeanor, explained, meanwhile, how close he was ” trapped “ in his own family before meeting his future wife, and that his father, Charles, refused to speak to him when he announced his wish to leave the country with his wife. At the beginning of 2020, Harry chose voluntary exile – in California – to preserve his wife, because he did not want to “Let history repeat itself”, like with his mother, Princess Diana, he told Oprah Winfrey.
The American star interviewer came as a neighbor – she too lives in Montecito, the super-rich Santa Barbara enclave where the couple bought a huge villa for £ 11million (€ 12.77million) in 2020.
The most serious allegation is probably that related to the ” skin color ” Archie, the couple’s son. A member of the royal family – Meghan and Harry have refused to give her name – has expressed “Worries” on the baby’s skin color, and asked “How dark it would be”, when the Duchess was pregnant. Accusations of racism are among those the British royal family fear most, keen to appear modern and adapted to a country with nearly 15% of ethnic minorities (Asians and of Caribbean or black African descent).
