Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle is standing up to the Royal Family, accusing them of “perpetuating falsehoods” against her and her husband, Prince Harry.
Last year, Markle and Prince Harry walked away from the roles as senior members of the Royal Family in a bid to escape the constant harassment from the British media.
But the harassment and public persecution continued.
“I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active role that the firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us,” Markle says to Oprah Winfrey, who asked her about how Buckingham Palace would react to her speaking out. “And if that comes with risk of losing things, there is a lot that has been lost already.”
In another promo clip, Markle’s husband once again addressed the parallels between the UK press’ treatment of his wife and that of his late mother, Princess Diana, who was killed in a car crash while attempting to flee from the paparazzi.
Harry referenced the fate of his late mother, Princess Diana.
“My biggest concern was history repeating itself,” he said. “I’m really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you with my wife by my side because I can’t begin to imagine what it must have been for her going through this process by herself all these years ago. Because it’s been unbelievably tough for the two of us but at least we have each other.”
“Oprah with Meghan and Harry” airs from 8 PM-10 PM Sunday, March 7.
