Meghan Markle has suggested that Buckingham Palace tell “lies” about her and her husband Prince Harry, according to an excerpt from an interview with Oprah Winfrey that will be broadcast on CBS.
When asked how her statements affected Buckingham, Markle replied: “I don’t know how they can expect us to be silent after all this time when there is an active role that the company (the royal family) plays in perpetuating the lies about us.”
“And if it comes with the risk of losing something, then a lot has already been lost.”
In 1995, Princess Diana She had already referred to “The Firm” in her controversial interview where she explained why she thought they had turned it down. “I do things differently, because I do not follow the rule book, because I go from the heart, not from the head, which got me into trouble in my job, as I understand it. But someone has to go out and love people and show that.”
The release of the video came after Buckingham Palace said it would examine press reports against the Duchess of Sussex about the alleged harassment of a former employee during her tenure as a member of the royal family.
The Times reported that in October 2018, Jason Knauf, then-Communications Secretary Harry and Meghan, filed a complaint about harassment in the workplace.
As a result, a spokeswoman for the Duchess of Sussex said that she is “sad about this latest attack on her person, especially as someone who has been personally harassed and is deeply involved in supporting those who have experienced suffering and trauma.”
In the TV interview, the Dukes will present their “version” of what happened in the British royal family, says Omid Scobey, co-author of the book. Searching for freedom For spouses.
“We actually heard Harry speak candidly about his mental health and I think this will really be the first time Meghan has had the opportunity to speak about her own experience. I think one of the issues that the Duchess will address in her interview with Oprah is racism and how this affected when she was an active member of the royal family, whether in some British newspapers or on social media. “.
“And I think many of these stories will give context to the work they are going to do with their organization, Archewell. (…) This battle against disinformation and online aggression (…) really comes from their own experiences as active members of the royal family.”
Will they criticize the royal family?
“I think the most negative aspect of their experience as active members of the royal family is above all the relationship with the British press. But I also think we will hear them speak quite frankly about the problems they faced within the royal establishment. But it should be noted that this is a different issue from their relationship. With the royals and despite the hysterical reaction of some in Buckingham Palace at this time, I think they will speak kindly of the close relationship that binds them to the Queen and Prince Philip. “
“At the end of the day, Harry and Meghan want to start the next chapter in a positive way. The negatives and problems of the past are not taken away. This will be an opportunity for them to present their version of events. Since the journalists, myself included, have spent the past three years talking about this issue, it seems from Fairly, they have two hours to do the same. “
How will it be visualized in the UK?
“I don’t think this changes the opinion of those who are not fans of the couple, especially in the UK. People have already taken sides. But I think it (could) affect those who are not sure what the couple is really facing. ”
“Because we heard about the misery they went through or the difficulties in prospering as active members of the royal family. But not everyone knows exactly why this happens. So I think people will at least come out more enlightened, even if it doesn’t change their opinion of the couple completely. In the opinion of the kingdom.” The United States is very divided around them. “
