Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey is making headlines for some shocking revelations by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

During the interview, Meghan, a former actress, went on to reveal that she had suicidal thoughts after marrying Prince Harry. She said she didn't want to be alive anymore.

"I was ashamed to say it at the time and ashamed to have to admit it to Harry, especially because I know how much loss he's suffered. But I knew that if I didn't say it, then I would do it. I just didn't want to be alive anymore. That was clear and real and frightening and constant thought." Meghan told.

She further added that the members of the Royal family denied help. "I remember how he just cradled me. And I went to the institution, and I said that I needed to go somewhere to get help. I said that, 'I've never felt this way before, and I need to go somewhere.' And I was told that I couldn't, that it wouldn't be good for the institution," Meghan added. 

Meghan also shared that the message was from "one of the most senior people." She added, "I remember this conversation like it was yesterday, because they said, 'My heart goes out to you, because I see how bad it is, but there's nothing we can do to protect you, because you're not a paid employee of the institution.'"

When Oprah asked whether Meghan was "having suicidal thoughts" and was thinking of harming herself, the Duchess said, "Yes. This was very, very clear. And, you know, I didn't know who to even turn to in that. And one of the people that I reached out to, who's continued to be a friend and confidant, was one of my husband's mom's best friends, one of Diana's best friends. Because it's, like, who else could understand what it's actually like on the inside?"
