Meghan Markle has reflected on the breakdown in Prince Harry’s relationship with Prince Charles, comparing it to her estrangement from her own father and adding that it “doesn’t have to be the same” for her husband.
Arry has been vocal about his strained relationship with his father, previously telling Oprah Winfrey in an interview that Charles has stopped calling after stepping down as a senior member of the British royal family.
In a new interview with the magazine The cutMeghan reflected on how the British tabloids had impacted the couple’s lives with their families, leaving them estranged from their father Thomas Markle.
“Harry said to me, ‘I lost my father in this process.’ It doesn’t have to be for her like me, but that’s his choice,” she told the magazine for the fall fashion issue.
Meghan and Harry, who married in 2018, have long had a strained relationship with the press.
In 2019, Meghan sued Associated Newspapers Limited for publishing articles that reproduced parts of a letter she wrote to Thomas.
Shortly after Harry and Meghan’s relationship became public knowledge, Harry issued a statement urging the press to “stop and think about their coverage of Meghan, who he says has been subjected to “a wave of abuse and harassment.” “.
The couple, who left the UK in early 2020, also opened up about their grievances with the “institution” during their 2021 interview with Winfrey.
Meghan said she had had suicidal thoughts while living and working as a member of the British royal family, and that a member of the royal household raised concerns about her son Archie’s skin color during her pregnancy.
When asked if she believes there is “room” for forgiveness between her and the royal family, Meghan said The cut: “I think forgiveness is really important. It takes a lot more energy not to forgive.
“But it takes a lot of effort to forgive. I tried really hard, especially because I know I can say anything.
“I have a lot to say until I don’t. Do you like that? Sometimes, as the saying goes, the silent part is still part of the song.”
