” My greatest fear was history repeating itself,” says Harry, who has actually blamed media harassment for his mom’s death.
In a 2nd clip, he includes: “I’m just actually relieved and happy to be sitting here speaking with you with my other half by my side due to the fact that I can’t begin to envision what it must have resembled for her [Diana] going through this procedure by herself all those years ago. Due to the fact that it’s been incredibly hard for the two of us however a minimum of we have each other.”
In another part of the interview, Oprah asks whether there had been a “breaking point” and appears to describe a remark by Meghan about royal life being “nearly unsurvivable”.
In a pointed nod to stress within the royal family, Oprah opened one fo the teaser clips asking Meghan, “were you quiet, or were you silenced?”
The teaser ended with the host stating the couple had actually said “some pretty stunning things”.
