Just a few days before her Oprah Winfrey interview in which she will speak out about the Palace allegedly memorializing falsehoods about her and Prince Harry, Meghan Markle is getting assistance from one of her former co-stars, her Suits alum Patrick J. Adams defended the former royal on Twitter today. “Meghan Markle and I spent the better part of a decade working together on Suits. From day one she was an enthusiastic, kind, cooperative, giving, joyful and supportive member of our television family. She remained that person and colleague as fame, prestige and power accrued,” he stated.
“She has always been a powerful woman with a deep sense of morality and a fierce work ethic and has never been afraid to speak up, be heard and defend herself and those she holds dear. Like the rest of the world, I have watched her navigate the last few years in astonishment.” “She fell in love, moved to a new country, became a household name across the entire globe and began the difficult work of trying to find her place in a family dynamic that can at best be described as complicated and at worst, seemingly archaic and toxic,” he proceeded.
“It sickened me to read the endless racist, slanderous, click-baiting vitriol spewed in her direction from all manner of media across the UK and the world but I also knew that Meghan was stronger than people realized or understood and they would regret underestimating her.” “And then they welcomed Archie. And on any sort of decent planet that would be a time to stop sharpening the knives and let these two people enjoy the magical early months and years of starting a family. But we don’t live on that planet and instead, the hunt continued,” he stated.
“It’s OBSCENE that the Royal Family, who’s the newest member is currently GROWING INSIDE OF HER, is promoting and amplifying accusations of ‘bullying’ against a woman who herself was forced to flee the UK in order protect her family and her mental health.” “IMO, this newest chapter and it’s timing is just another stunning example of the shamelessness of an institution that has outlived its relevance, is way overdrawn on credibility and bankrupt of decency,” he ended his statement. “Find someone else to admonish, berate and torment. My friend Meghan is way out of your league.”
Along with this It was also revealed that Oprah asked Meghan for an interview in 2018, ahead of her and Harry’s wedding, but it wasn’t confirmed until now.
Remembering the event, Meghan said: “I remember that conversation very well. I wasn’t even allowed to have this conversation with you personally, right? There had to be people from the — sitting there, there were other people in the room when I was having that conversation,” she said before clarifying why this was the exact time to speak. “Well, so many things. That we’re on the other side of a lot of — a lot of life experience that’s happened, and also that we can make our own choices in a way that I couldn’t have said yes to you then. That wasn’t my choice to make.”
“As an adult who lived an independent life to then go into this construct that is different than I think what people expect it to be, it’s liberating to be able to have the right and the privilege in some ways to be able to say yes, I’m ready to talk,” Meghan confessed.
