Meghan says Royal family denied her of her independent life, as being a member of the British Royal family, is like giving up one’s private. She said it was as if her freedom was taken away from her.
In a just released clip from the soon to be aired munch-anticipated interview with media mogul, Oprah, Meghan says Royal family handled all communications especially as regard granting of interviews to the media.
She also suggests that people can’t imagine what it was like to leave her independent life and enter the “construct” of the monarchy.
Meghan Markle’s memory of a phone call from Oprah in 2018 makes it sound like the then duchess-to-be was being held captive by the Royal Family.
In the clip, Oprah recalls calling Meghan months before her royal wedding to request an interview and being politely turned down. Back then, Meghan said the timing wasn’t right, but now she says that was an excuse forced on her.
The reality was, according to Meghan “I wasn’t even allowed to have that conversation with you personally, right? There had to be people from the comm., sitting there.”
Meghan says the timing is right now, though, because she and Harry finally have the ability to make their own choices.
The Duke and Duchess’ interview with Oprah has promised to be “shocking,” and the couple’s essentially declared war against Queen Elizabeth and Buckingham Palace by accusing them of spreading “falsehoods” about them.
