Duchess Meghan (41) revealed at an event in New York why she spoke publicly about her mental problems. According to Page Six, she said at the Ripple of Hope Awards that she 'didn't want anyone to feel alone.' As the celebrity page of the 'New York Post' further reports, Prince Harry's (38) wife added that when things are going so badly, it can be difficult - 'you don't see a way out'.
Meghan explained that 'it was not an easy decision' to report about it in the TV interview with Oprah Winfrey (68) in March 2021. She did this for other people with similar experiences. 'We all have to, if we can, if we feel brave enough, just be honest about our own experiences,' she said. 'It gives other people space and the courage to do the same and the feeling that you are not alone Because I think that's often the biggest obstacle when you're feeling like this - you can't see a way out.''I haven't seen any solution at all'
In the Oprah interview, Meghan explained that one reason for her departure from the royal family was her poor mental health. She was completely desperate: 'I didn't see any solution at all, I lay awake all night and just cried.' Even suicidal thoughts spread through her: 'I didn't want to be alive anymore. It was a clear, real and frightening thought.'
At the charity event in New York, where Meghan and Harry were honored with a human rights award, the Duchess of Sussex also said, according to 'Page Six': Most people in such situations are probably looking for people who have gone through something similar and experienced a happy ending . 'And that's why I made the decision to say, 'If my experience can help someone else not feel that way or know that there is hope, then whatever that comes with it, it's worth every second.'
Duchess Meghan's unhappy time behind the palace walls will probably also be a topic in the Netflix documentary 'Harry & Meghan', the first part of which will be released tomorrow, Thursday (December 8th). In a trailer for it, the Sussexes, who relocated to the US in 2020, are asked, 'Why do you want to make this documentary?' to which Harry seems to reply later in the clip, 'Nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors.' Meanwhile, his wife holds her hand in front of her face.
