Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gave an explosive interview on Oprah recently. And they also made the decision of moving out of England and settling in North America. In the interview Markle expressed how she had felt repressed and bulllied in the Royal household. She shared her experience saying that she was also a victim of racism in the royal household. Given the intrusive and racist nature of the British Press Markle and Prince Harry decided to leave the Royal family for good.
Andrew Morton who is the biographer of Princess Diana shared his thoughts on the interview of the royal couple. On the “Royally Obsessed” podcast he shared that there were many similarities between Princess Diana and Markle’s situation.
Before Markle married Harry, she worked as Rachel Zane in the legal drama “Suits” from 2011 until 2018. She was given the choice of continuing her career as an actress, if she did not want to take on the royal duties. However, Prince Harry shared his thoughts, he said that they knew from the beginning it was going to be hard.
When Andrew Morton saw the interview he noticed a few things that were similar between Diana and Markel. He said -“‘yes, sense of isolation,’ ‘yes, sense of desperation,’ exactly what Diana was saying to me,” said Morton. “But then again, friends of mine said they’ve seen Meghan walking from Whole Foods supermarket on Kensington High Street with bags of food back to Kensington Palace.” So, it wasn’t completely a prison. But there are parallels between the two.
