Meghan Markle revealed in a no-holds-barred interview on Sunday that a barrage of negative coverage in the British press had driven her to the point where life no longer seemed worth living.
“I knew that if I didn’t say it, that I would do it. And I… just didn’t want to be alive anymore. And that was a very clear and real and frightening constant thought,” she said in the two-hour CBS spot with Oprah Winfrey.
Meghan, who married Prince Harry in 2018, said she told the royal family she was struggling and needed professional help but was told “that I couldn’t, that it wouldn’t be good for the institution.”
