Meghan Markle latest news – Duchess wanted to kill herself while pregnant 'but couldn't bear Harry losing another woman'

MEGHAN Markle's critics "will not stop until she dies", Prince Harry has claimed in his new mental health documentary.

The Duke of Sussex opens up about his struggles with his mental well-being and the trauma that haunts him after the death of mother Princess Diana in The Me You Can't See – his new series with Oprah Winfrey that dropped on Apple TV today.

Harry, 36, says he regrets not taking a stand in his relationship with Meghan sooner, comparing their relationship to that of Diana's.

"History was repeating itself. My mother was chased to her death while she was in a relationship with someone who wasn’t white," he said.

"And now look what’s happened. You want to talk about history repeating itself? They’re not going to stop until she dies."

    'SHUT UP'

    Piers Morgan has slammed Prince Harry again following his latest explosive interview.

    In his Apple TV docuseries with Oprah Winfrey, The Me You Can't See, Harry accused the Royal Family of "neglecting" Meghan Markle's mental health issues and driving him to "exhaustion" with work demands.

    It prompted Piers to tweet: "Oh FFS. Is there no end to Prince Privacy's victimhood tour? Constantly abusing his family, knowing they can't respond, is so pathetic & cowardly. Man up, Harry – and shut up."

    When a follower accused Piers of lacking empathy, he hit back: "What 'empathy' is Harry showing his family as he constantly trashes them in public? It's grotesquely unfair (they can't answer back) outrageously hypocritical, and he's making millions from doing it. THAT'S appalling."

    HARRY & WILLS’ ‘PEACE TALKS’ WERE DOOMED

    Harry and William’s “peace talks” at their grandfather’s funeral were “doomed to fail” – because Harry had been plotting his new bombshell documentary the whole time, an expert has claimed.

    Commentator Phil Dampier says Harry would have been well aware that he’d be blasting his family in the documentary at his grandfather’s funeral.

    He said it means any attempts at reconciling with his father and brother after the service were “pointless”.

    The Duke of Sussex “must have known” what he planned to say about the royals “probably many months” before the documentary was released, Mr Dampier said.

    "It means any attempts there were after the funeral to have meaningful peace talks were pointless and doomed to failure," he said.

    TALK SHOW HOST SLAMMED FOR SAYING HARRY IS IN AN 'EMOTIONALLY ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP'

    Candace Owens has been slammed for saying that Prince Harry is in an "emotionally abusive relationship" after being "groomed" by Meghan Markle.

    The controversial conservative made the comments after the first episode of a bombshell new interview where Harry detailed his and his wife's mental health struggles.

    "I cannot say enough that Prince Harry is in an emotionally abusive relationship," Owens wrote on Twitter.

    "Meghan has groomed him to believe that she is his mother reincarnate—only this time, he has a chance to save her. It is so disturbing to watch. Please stop putting cameras on him."

    The shocking comments received backlash on social media, with someone dubbing Owens' "obsession with Meghan" as "disturbing to watch." Another person claimed "you're jealous of Meghan," with someone joking the Duchess of Sussex is "living rent free in your head."

    HARRY ADMITS TO TURNING TO DRINK & DRUGS IN THE PAST

    Prince Harry has admitted to taking drugs and regularly “drinking a week’s worth of alcohol in one day” to “mask the pain” of his mum Diana’s death.

    Harry said he would try to “feel less” of what he was feeling and would abstain from drinking all week and then drink “a week’s worth” in one sitting as a coping mechanism.

    “I was willing to drink, I was willing to take drugs, I was willing to try and do the things that made me feel less like I was feeling”, the Duke admits.

    “But I slowly became aware that, okay, I wasn’t drinking Monday to Friday, but I would probably drink a week’s worth in one day on a Friday or a Saturday night.

    “And I would find myself drinking, not because I was enjoying it but because I was trying to mask something.”

    QUEEN, HARRY & WILLS RECEIVE APOLOGY LETTERS FROM BBC

    Prince Harry, William and the Queen have all received apology letters from the BBC over the Princess Diana Panorama interview scandal.

    Royal sources said the corporation has also written to Prince Charles to say sorry after a damning report found the BBC “fell short of the high standards of integrity and transparency which are its hallmark”.

    Palace sources confirmed the members of the royal family had received letters – but said they would not be released.

    A probe was launched into journalist Martin Bashir and BBC bosses over how the then-unknown journalist managed to bag the royal scoop in 1995.

    The six-month independent inquiry conducted by Lord Dyson found the BBC “did not scrutinise” Bashir despite knowing he lied three times.

    ‘HARRY IGNORED QUEEN’S PLEA TO DEAL WITH ISSUES IN PRIVATE’

    Prince Harry ignored the Queen’s plea to deal with issues privately – and there is now little chance the Duke will soon reconcile with his family, a royal expert says.

    Commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said the Royal Family face huge difficulties in how to move forward – particularly after the Queen requested that personal problems were dealt with out of the public gaze.

    Mr Fitzwilliams said there is “clearly a huge gulf between the Royal Family and the Sussexes”.

    “The Queen urged that the issues be dealt with privately as a family. Meghan and Harry don’t seem to be heeding that at all,” he said.

    “The other problem is that when you’re dealing with a couple who are erratic, you don’t know what’s coming.”

    HARRY REVEALS LONDON WAS A ‘TRIGGER’

    Harry has revealed returning to London was a “trigger” for him after Princess Diana’s death as he tackled his personal traumas in an on-screen therapy session.

    The Duke of Sussex said he has a “hollow empty feeling of nervousness” whenever he arrives in the capital and admitted he feels “hunted and helpless” while he’s there.

    When questioned by his therapist about how it makes him feel, Harry said: “[Like there] is no escape. There is no way out of this.”

    But after being pushed by his therapist into exploring how he feels looking back on that moment, the soon-to-be- father-of-two added: “I’m not helpless.

    “It’s only for a brief moment in time and you’re living your life by truth so there’s nothing to be afraid of or worried about.”

    "Constantly abusing his family, knowing they can't respond, is so pathetic & cowardly.

    "Man up, Harry – and shut up."

    The duke also spoke about comedian Robin Williams' son Zak opening up about his struggles and his dad's suicide in 2014.

    Oprah told Gayle King that it was Prince Harry who asked to appear on the Apple TV series.

    She said: “I started to tell him about the series I was doing with Apple TV plus and he said: ‘Oh and if you ever need any help with that series, let me know.”

    HARRY SHOWS IN-DEPTH LOOK AT THERAPY SESSIONS

    The Duke of Sussex, 36, discussed his therapy and even filmed a session of his EMDR (eye movement, desensitization, reprocessing) therapy.

    Harry revealed he’s done therapy for “four and a bit years, five years now,” adding it’s a sort of prevention for him.

    He even called therapists “someone who can help guide us, create that awareness in our own life to when we might be feeling pain and how to get out of that.”

    “EMDR is always something that I wanted to try,” Harry said, adding it’s “one of the varieties of different forms of healing or curing.”

    “I never would have been open to that had I not put in the work in the therapy that I’ve done over the years,” he adds.

    The Prime Minister said: “I can only imagine the feelings of the royal family.

    “I hope very much that the BBC will be taking every possible step to make sure nothing like this ever happens again.”

    'I'LL NEVER BE BULLIED INTO SILENCE AGAIN', HARRY SAYS

    Prince Harry has said he will "never be bullied into silence again" in a swipe at the Queen after Megxit.

    The Duke of Sussex told Oprah Winfrey in his new documentary The Me You Don't See he felt compelled to step away from the Royal Family as he was "controlled through fear" and told not to talk about his "trauma".

    Speaking during the Apple TV docuseries, Harry said he did not go to his family when wife Meghan Markle felt suicidal because he was ashamed the situation had got "that bad".

    The duke said he also suspected the royals would not have been able to help.

    The 36-year-old said: "That was one of the biggest reasons to leave, feeling trapped and feeling controlled through fear, both by the media and by the system itself which never encouraged the talking about this kind of trauma. Certainly now I will never be bullied into silence."

    QUEEN & CHARLES 'DISMAYED' BY HARRY'S CLAIMS

    The Royal Family will be "dismayed" by Prince Harry's latest broadside on his "nightmare" life – and William and Charles are '"tearing out their hair", an expert says.

    Doc The Me You Can't See comes just ten-and-a-half weeks after Harry and Meghan's Oprah interview aired – but features a new slew of complaints at the royals.

    And expert Phil Dampier said chances of a reconciliation for the family are fading.

    "The royals will be dismayed and Charles and William will be tearing out what's left of their hair," he said.

    "It just seems to be another day and another whinge. We need to be respectful of Harry's mental health, of course, but you do wonder – when he is going to stop? How much longer he can do this for?"

    'IF WE HOLD ONTO GRIEF IT APPEARS LATER IN LIFE'

    On GMA, Harry went on to speak about the world-broadcasted death of his mother impacted his own mental health.

    "There were so many people of all ages that need to heal and that also are for one reason or another unable to heal or maybe unaware that they need to heal," he detailed.

    "If we hold onto grief it manifests itself and appears later in life – that is what I've learned from this process."

    Harry was wearing a blue suit and white shirt during his interview, appearing on video on a sofa.

    BASHIR RAKING IN £17K A GO AS SPEAKER AFTER INTERVEIW SHAME

    Shamed Martin Bashir is raking in a whopping £17,626-a-time speaking at luxury corporate dinners and glitzy fundraisers.

    The reporter, whose lies to secure his bombshell Panorama interview with Princess Diana have now been exposed, is enjoying a lucrative second career on the public speaking circuit.

    His demands for cash to talk about his experiences with tragic Diana were revealed hours after a report found he faked bank statements to deceive the princess. And his tainted scoop with the royal, two years before her death, has made him a millionaire.

    Bashir is on the books of US-based agency Celebrity International Talent, where he commands a fee of between £10,576 and almost £18,000. But the site says he could charge even more, with the location of the event and the length of time he will speak for a factor in the final amount.

    OPRAH TIPPED TO BE GODMOTHER TO HARRY & MEGHAN'S BABY

    Oprah Winfrey has been tipped to be godmother to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby girl. 

    Both Harry and Meghan had remained tight lipped about two-year-old Archie’s godparents – but insiders have told the chat show queen is in the running for their second baby which is due this summer.  

    Pal Omid Scobie suggested Oprah was in the frame, saying: "If one of those godparents is Oprah – and I’m not saying that she is – then you can understand why perhaps they want to keep that to themselves.

    "Because even Oprah sitting down to interview them was controversial enough in itself.”

    The pair are said to be keen to reward Oprah for their earth-shattering interview in March.

    HARRY GIVES SWEET NOD TO ARCHIE WITH DOG TAG CHAIN

    The focus of his new documentary series might be his mental health struggles – but Prince Harry proved that son Archie is always close to his heart.

    In his five-part series The Me You Can't See, the Duke of Sussex is seen wearing a dog tag chain engraved with his two-year-old son's initial – and wife Meghan Markle has a matching one too.

    SCHOFE SPOTTED

    Phillip Schofield made a surprise cameo in Prince Harry's new docuseries.

    This Morning host Phil's brief appearance on The Me You Can't See came as Harry talked to Oprah Winfrey about the press interest in his life since childhood.

    The presenter, who previously defended Harry and wife Meghan Markle's first interview with Oprah earlier this year, could be heard saying: "We are starting today with a story dominating headlines around the world this morning.

    "Last night, after weeks of speculation, we finally got to hear Harry and Meghan’s story as they sat down with Oprah for a tell-all interview."

    WHAT DID HARRY SAY IN THE INTERVIEW?

    • Prince Charles didn't 'make it right' for him and brother Prince William after their mother's car crash death in 1997
    • He turned to drinking and drugs in his late 20s, admitting: 'I would drink a week's worth in one day'
    • As a child he was 'angry' at the public for the huge outpouring of grief after Diana died at the age of 36
    • He's convinced the media 'will not stop' until wife Meghan Markle 'dies'
    • Meghan resisted suicidal thoughts because she knew it would be 'unfair' for Harry to lose another woman in his life
    • Some of Archie's first words were "grandma Diana"

    'HUGE GULF'

    Prince Harry ignored the Queen's plea to deal with issues privately – and there is now little chance the Duke will soon reconcile with his family, a royal expert says.

    It comes as Harry makes yet more bombshell claims about his "nightmare" life as a royal in the documentary The Me You Can't See.

    The prince says he was shown "total neglect" for his mental health woes, while father Charles made him "suffer".

    And he claimed The Firm had "smeared" his wife – leaving her crying into her pillow – before the Oprah interview aired ten weeks ago.

    Commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said the Royal Family face huge difficulties in how to move forward – particularly after the Queen requested that personal problems were dealt with out of the public gaze.

    MEGHAN ‘DIDN’T KILL HERSELF BECAUSE SHE DIDN’T WANT HARRY TO LOSE ANOTHER WOMAN’

    Meghan Markle only didn’t kill herself because she didn’t want Harry to “lose another woman in his life”, he has revealed.

    Meghan revealed during a high-profile interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year that her mental health suffered while she was living in the UK and that she was not given the help she needed when she reportedly felt suicidal.  

    The duke told Oprah in the new doc that what stopped his wife from giving in to suicidal thoughts was how “unfair” it would be to him after the death of his mum Princess Diana in 1997.

    “The thing that stopped her from seeing it through was how unfair it would be on me after everything that had happened to my mum and to now be put in a position of losing another woman in my life, with a baby inside of her, our baby,” he said.

    “The scariest thing for her was her clarity of thought. She hadn’t ‘lost it.’ … She was completely sane. Yet in the quiet of night, these thoughts woke her up.”
