There was a recent interview between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with Oprah Winfrey, in which both had an explosive conversation about their life as senior members of the royal family and all the challenges they had to face, which has been getting a range of reactions online.
And when Meghan Markle opened up about how she was suicidal and needed help for her mental health while she was in London, she said, “I… just didn’t want to be alive anymore. And that was a very clear and real and frightening constant thought.”And asked if she was having suicidal thoughts, Meghan replied “Yes. This was very, very clear,” also recalling the time when how she felt at that moment, to which Meghan replied, “I’m scared because this is very real. This isn’t some abstract idea. This is methodical, and this is not who I am.”
So, she started receiving a fresh batch of mean comments online after revealing this. In the meanwhile, actress Sophie Turner and legendary singer Beyonce came forward as voice support for Meghan.
Sophie shared a message on Instagram, which read as “Meghan Markle probably isn’t going to see your negative comments saying you don’t believe that she was suicidal… but your friends and family who have been in the past will, and they’ll never come to you for help. Don’t be that person.”
And Beyonce, who has long been an ardent supporter of Meghan, shared words of encouragement. “Thank you Meghan for your courage and leadership,” she wrote on her website, alongside a photo of the pair at the UK premiere for The Lion King. “We are all strengthened and inspired by you.”
