This post was made two days after the Oprah with Meghan and Harry interview was live on CBS, I just watched a replay video.
In one part of the interview, Oprah said she is shocked by all the stories Meghan is telling. Meghan said I am sorry if it shocked you but this is my experience.
As a blogger, I also write about my experiences and I don’t want to write a script that a client or my readers want to read because that is better for the brand or the readers, Each story has a couple of sides, how I see it, how I feel about it, how they see it and how everyone else sees it. When it comes to your personal life whose story should weigh more? Should it be you, Who has your own bias and feelings? Or the outsider who doesn’t have anything to do about it but just running a business, no feelings attached.
Time will be the one, to tell the truth. So we all just wait and see. Meanwhile, while we wait for that here is my takeaway on that Oprah with Meghan and Harry Interview
- Why did they have to do this interview now? Especially at the time of the pandemic and many people are struggling to live a normal life, get work, have something to feed their families, stay away from everyone else because of the threat of the Covid-19 virus?
- Well, I think this because they are promoting their Archwell Foundation.
Archwell Foundation is built by Meghan and Harry who still uses the title of Dutch and Duke of Sussex. The purpose is to uplift and unite communities—local and global, online and offline—one act of compassion at a time. We believe that compassion is the defining cultural force of the 21st century, and through the work of our 501(c)(3), we support a growing community of partner organizations fueling systemic cultural change. At Archewell Foundation, we listen to people and their communities, help them tell their stories, put real action behind our words, and spotlight a new generation of leadership
Also as Harry mentioned, he struck a deal with Netflix and Spotify as he was cutoff financially by the royal family. I think this is just a big promotion for their deals.
I feel bad that Meghan felt that way when she started to play the role of royalty. She said she did not research this life and doesn’t know what it will be. But she did say that “it is not like any fairy tale you read”.
As a girl who was read or read a lot of fairy tale stories and seen movies and TV shows about princesses in training. I don’t think Meghan did not know what this life of marrying a prince would be like. What we were told as little girls is that the Prince charming will be our Knight in Shining Armor and we will live happily ever after with all the riches and all the servants who will do what we tell them to do and we will be given everything we need. She didn’t know it was the opposite that you will become a puppet and an image of a luxurious happy and perfect life who always beams that beautiful smile among her constituents. As an actress, she should have known that there were roles she has to play, She was an actor she knew that there will be an entire production and an entire script they have to follow. What did she expect? She will be like the Queen of Hearts who yells off with their heads when it doesn’t please her? That everyone will do whatever she wants because she’s royalty?
- She mentioned that all she wanted was security for her child.
- She wanted Archie to keep the title of Prince even if they both renounced their title as the Duke and Dutches of Sussex. She was imploring convention and the being grandchildren of the Queen, they are entitled to that title. In February 2021, they had this press conference, and that they announced they would no longer be a working member of the Royal family. And with that Harry will be returning his title, military, and even the royalty title to the Queen. It’s renouncing your title and the family you were born with.
Meghan said she just wanted her children to keep their birthright being the grandchildren of the Queen they are entitled to get the title of Prince and Princess. Is that all she wants the title or she really just wants the title and all the benefits that come along with it. That’s what she signed up for when she married a prince live like a princess and don’t have to work a day for it,
- What do they both expect that they both will still benefit from the royal duties but want the benefits? It’s just simple logic. If I was given a job and I said I quit. Should I be still be paid for that job title I said I don’t want to do anymore?
Meghan was trying to give this impression that racism was one of the factors their child Archie will not be given the title. She was saying that “there were conversations” about what would Archie’s skin color be like and how would that affect them. She and Harry did not want to say who said that or who did they have these conversations with. Meghan said she heard conversations were going around and Harry said he doesn’t want to say what was the exact question was. He didn’t want to talk about it. But Meghan kept emphasizing skin color so as to spark anger om racism.
It came out at the end of the Oprah with Meghan interview that it was all about the sudden decision that their security, mostly of Harry was being pulled out from them. That while living in Canada they were told that the UK royal security will no longer be protecting them.
Harry said there were threats to his life that’s why he needed security. He also mentioned he was cut from the royalty benefits mostly financial and security detail. IMO because they’re no longer working members of the royal family there is no longer important to guard them. they’re not interested in the throne anyway.
I believe Meghan was overwhelmed by the daily routine of royalty where they need to attend events, dress up and show up with a big smile. Because Meghan was used to not smile a lot when she was in Hollywood when paparazzi would or “fans” would see her. She can just be a b with an itch. As royalty you can’t be that in public. She said she didn’t have the freedom she had before as an actor. She said she gave up being an actor. But Meghan wasn’t that known until she started dating Harry. IMO.
As for pitting two women against each other, Meghan made Kate Cry because of the flower girl dresses. She said it was the opposite. If she means not to say bad things against Kate which she said she adores, why did she have to say this? She even said “If you love me doesn’t mean you have to hate her. If you hate me doesn’t mean you have to love her.” I agree. So why did she has to say that it was the opposite?
She emphasized that the Queen was good to her, they have a great relationship. The Queen didn’t do anything against the, If she can say such to the Queen why can’t she say the same for Kate? Want to do the divide?
Harry said his relationship with Prince William is spaced. I guess they no lomger talk. He said that he felt bad for his father and brother because both of them are trapped. He is now free.
Harry said he didn’t know before Meghan that whatever he was doing was a bad thing Until Meghan came and made him realize all these things. So does this mean he was brainwashed by his wife? I don’t know. Or he is just being a faithful and loyal husband.
Anyway, Meghan admitted that she had clear suicidal thoughts all the time during her pregnancy. I know hormones can do a lot of things with women’s brains. Being overwhelmed with a new responsibility and having to smile for everyone, which she has been doing as an actor, the show must go on I’m sure she was told. How come she can’t do this role?
I think she was being paranoid and was having schizophrenia at the same time. Harry said he was ashamed to admit that his wife was having problems. So maybe all the so-called conversations just happened in her head while she was having clear thoughts about taking her own life?
I am not privy to The Firm or the Institution. But I know when I was a girl, I knew there are certain behaviors and protocols you have to follow if you want to marry a Prince. I have this fascination with royalties and their dynamics. Watching Oprah with Meghan and Harry’s interview just made me see Bridgeton and the Princess Diary’s story told in a scarier way.
I think young girls who might have watched Oprah with Meghan and Harry interview on CBS have lost all their Prince charming and living in Palace dreams because they’re made to see that it was all a lie and it’s not a fairytale after all.
Honestly, who wants to live a fairytale, all fairytales are a sham. Helpless women waiting to be saved by a man. Stay at home be a wife and live happily ever after. What a joke. Anyway. If you want to live like a princess, find a job that you love and be the boss of you, buy things you want go to where you want. Don’t wait for someone or don’t rely on someone else to bring you happiness.
The things Meghan told Oprah in her interview made me realized she suffered from depression and anxiety because of the overwhelming responsibilities she needs to fulfill as a working member of the royal family.
She said she didn’t research what life will be like a princess will be like but she did Google how to sing the UK National Anthem because no one taught her that. She also mentioned she had to learn how to sit or walk as a royal on her own.
I was puzzled by the ending statement of Meghan that Harry saved them as if there was a threat in their life. Was she being paranoid? But she did say she was being suicidal during those times. Was it an episode of schizophrenia that nobody understood?
Mental illness and suicide is not a joke. People suffering from these should seek professional help and intervention.
In the Oprah with Meghan and Harry interview on CBS, Meghan said they tried to get help but she was not given the help she needed.
