Royal Family Interview

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to marry a prince? Well, Meghan Markle did it and it wasn’t happily ever after.

On March 10th, 2021, Oprah Winfrey interviewed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on why they decided to distance themselves from the royal family. Markle is an American actress and Prince Harry is the Duke of Sussex. Markle was interviewed in the first half and then later joined with the prince. Since Markle was married into the royal family she talked about how life was like for her.

The interview went live prime time in North America, shortly after the queen’s own message.

The queen stated that “Over the coming week as we celebrate the friendship spirit of unity and achievements of the commonwealth. We have an opportunity to reflect on a time like no other. Whilst experiences like no other of the last year have been different across the commonwealth, stirring examples of courage, commitment, and selfless dedication to duty has been demonstrated in every commonwealth, nation, and territory.”

During the queen’s commonwealth day message, there was no indication that anything happened with the prince or Markle.

The interview exposed how the couple felt and their reasons leading up to fulfilling their wish to not be a part of the family. One instance that really made people upset was that the couple talked to palace officials about the birth of their son, Archie.

“The conversation of he won’t be given security. He’s not going to be given a title, and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born,” stated Markle.

Another thing that shocked the public was that when Markle was under tabloid scrutiny and she felt alone. At one of her lowest points, she had thought about committing suicide.

The couple revealed that at first Markle was really welcomed at first. The couple went on a tour together in the South Pacific, after that, they felt trapped.

Tabloids started to push out stories that Markle was rude to her staff. Markle claims that this was orchestrated to make her look bad. The palace doesn’t normally answer to newspapers but they said that they would investigate. The palace did not end up investigating Prince Andrew’s sexual abuse allegations.

“Not only was I not being protected, but that they were willing to lie to protect other members of the family, but they weren’t willing, to tell the truth, to protect me and my husband.” Markle has stated after the allegations of her being rude to staff.

Markle felt like she was naive when she got married into the royal family. She didn’t know exactly what to expect at all.

After all that, the couple felt like they had no other choice but to leave. The prince then stated that he has been financially cut off since last year. The prince expressed how he is disappointed with his father and then the entire relationship there.

The interview was a lot about what they have gone through with the royal family and their treatment there. Most of the treatment that Markle describes is really upsetting and unfair. Toward the end of the interview, the couple touched on how they are expecting a baby girl soon.
