Meghan Markle wants to share her side of the story. Royal watchers are counting down the days to Prince Harry and Meghan’s big interview with Oprah Winfrey. It’s the first interview that the couple had since stepping down from their senior royal duties. Although it hasn’t come out yet, it’s already causing backlash.
The snippets alone are enough to make Kensington Palace shake in their shoes. As for Meghan, she’s looking forward to sharing her side of the story. She finds it “liberating” to finally speak her peace. However, critics don’t understand why the Duke and Duchess of Sussex left the British royal family in the first.
And they don’t understand why they need to speak out. At first, the couple said they wanted to live their lives privately. But since then, they’ve been making moves with their new non-profit organization, Archewell Foundation. Finally, fans and critics alike will get some answers.
Meghan Markle reveals why she and Prince Harry are “ready to talk”
In a new clip from the highly-anticipated tell-all interview, Meghan Markle reveals why she and Prince Harry want to share their story.
“We’re on the other side of a lot of life experience that’s happened,” the 39-year-old says in the sneak peek, which first aired on CBS’ This Morning on Friday, March 5. “We have the ability to make our own choices in a way that I couldn’t have said ‘yes’ to [interviews] then. That wasn’t my choice to make.”
Meghan admitted she “wasn’t even allowed” to speak to the press. If she chose to, then others would be “sitting there” listening and approving what she had to say.
“As an adult who lived a really independent life then go into this construct that is different than I think what people imagine it to be, it’s really liberating to be able to have the right and the privilege in some ways to be able to say, ‘Yes, I’m ready to talk,’ to be able to just make a choice on your own and to be able to just speak for yourself,” Meghan added.
The couple refuses to be silent
This sneak peek is just the latest in a series of tidbits. In a previous clip, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shared that they had to break their silence. They refuse to be silent about what it was like to be a part of the royal family.
“I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent,” she said in a Wednesday, March 3 clip from the interview. “And if that comes with the risk of losing things, there is a lot that has been lost already.”
Meghan and Harry will discuss many things in the tell-all interview. Topics range from their marriage, their pregnancy news, and their old royal life. Previously, Harry and Meghan announced they are expecting their second child.
Meghan had a feeling that it would “get ugly” before the interview.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are prepared for a war with Buckingham Palace. Just a few days ago, the Suits alum accused the British royal family of “perpetuating falsehoods” about her and Harry. However, the couple didn’t know that it would be this bad.
“Harry and Meghan knew that it would get ugly in the run-up [to the special],” an anonymous friend told Harper’s Bazaar on Wednesday, March 3. “But seeing such an obvious attempt at destroying her character was distressing and upsetting.”
Meghan has faced a lot of backlash leading up to the CBS interview. Earlier this week, she’s been accused of bullying her former palace advisers. Since then, Meghan’s former friends have come to her support. Despite all the drama surrounding the couple, they refuse to stay silent.
