Markle opened up about her mental health struggles during Sunday’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, claiming she was once suicidal over her treatment while living as a royal.
“Look, I was really ashamed to say it at the time and ashamed to have to admit it to Harry especially, because I know how much loss he suffered, but I knew that if I didn’t say it, then I would do it,” Markle said alongside Prince Harry. “I just didn’t want to be alive anymore.”
