Besides several disturbing details of their life as royals, the couple also revealed the happy news that they are expecting a baby girl
It was a tell-all as talk-show host Oprah Winfrey interviewed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – who are currently expecting their second child together – a baby girl, the couple revealed. The couple looked thriving and liberated in their new roles as they stepped back from royal duties to lead their lives in California.
The interview had them make several revelations that had ultimately led them to take a call about their association with the royal institution. Among the several royal struggles that the couple faced, they alleged that Meghan’s biracial background had been a concern and there had been conversations about ‘how dark’ their son Archie’s skin would be.
The couple further revealed that the royal family had cut them off financially since they stepped back from their royal duties and that the couple had to rely on Harry’s inheritance from his mother, the late Princess Diana. It was evident through the interview that the late Princess Diana remained a strong influence in the life of son Prince Harry and his wife Meghan. In fact, Meghan even sported a diamond bracelet, once owned by Diana.
The Duchess of Sussex also spoke about her struggle with suicidal thoughts, as a result of the isolation and loneliness she felt while with the royal family and shared how she felt trapped. Harry also revealed that his father, Prince Charles, had stopped taking his calls after the couple stepped away from the royal family. Harry however, shared that inspite of the differences, between him and his older brother Prince William, the two share a strong bond. Meghan shared that beyond the Queen being welcoming, there was no support from the royal institution.
Meghan also denied all rumours that claimed she had made Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, cry during her royal wedding. She insisted that it was in fact the other way around and it was Kate who had made Meghan cry, and had later even apologized for it.
On a happier note, the couple revealed that they were expecting a girl in summer this year.
