Meghan Markle quotes Oprah interview that show how strong the former royal is: Here are eight statements made by Meghan Markle during her interview which reflect her strength and resilience.
Meghan Markle And Prince Harry’s highly-explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey has left media outlets and tabloids reeling. From making shocking revelations that put the British royal family in an uncomfortable position to revealing that their second child is a girl, the tell-all chat aired on March 7 gave off the vibes of Princess Diana’s controversial interview in 1995 with Martin Bashir, where she famously opened up about the love triangle in her marriage.
Nevertheless, it is important to acknowledge the strength, resolve and boldness the Duchess of Sussex had shown in the interview, not shying away from opening up about what she went through at the Buckingham Palace in spite of the formidable nature of the British royal family.
Here are some of eight powerful statements made by Meghan Markle in her Oprah Winfrey interview:
On suicidal ideation and not getting help
“I went to one of the most senior people to get help. I share this because there are so many people who are afraid to voice that they need help, but I know how hard it is to voice it and be told no.”
On speaking up for yourself
“It’s really liberating to be able to have the right and the privilege in some ways to be able to say, ‘Yes … I’m ready to talk’ … to be able to just make a choice on your own and just to be able to speak for yourself.”
On her strong stance concerning Buckingham Palace
“I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.”
On being Archie’s mom
“All the grandeur surrounding this stuff is an attachment I don’t personally have. The most important title I will ever have is ‘mom’.”
On discrimination against Archie
“It’s not their right to take it away… While I was pregnant they said they want to change the convention for Archie. Well, why?”
On Archie facing racial discrimination
During the interview, Meghan opened up about how a few members of Buckingham Palace were ‘concerned’ about her then unborn son’s skin colour.
Meghan: ……there were concerns about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.
Oprah: WHAT. Who is having THAT conversation with you? WHAT.
Meghan: There are several conversations.
Oprah: Hold up, there are conversations with you.
Meghan: With Harry.
Oprah: About how dark this baby is going to be.
Meghan: That was relayed to me by Harry from conversation the family had with him.
Oprah: And you’re not going to tell me who had the conversation.
Meghan: I think that would be very damaging to them.
