    This couple has the right of leaving the crazy family. HOWEVER, the major criticism is how they have done the things. First, they started giving interviews where they trashed the other royals, then they left the family in an abrupt way, now they gave a “tell-all” interview in which they are venting a lot of family issues. We understand they are unhappy, go to a psicologist, pay some sessions and keep it private. As the sayings goes “the dirty laundry should be washed at home”

    LOL...I give them 2-3 years together, tops. That couple was doomed from the start, both married into their own fantasies. Neither one fits in each other’s world, and that’s the truth. Ginger will return to his circle and continue the path chosen for him, she’ll soon remarry some older rich guy here in the States, her “Royal” dream is over. I wouldn’t want to be that guy, he has many fences to mend back in The UK.

    Meghan Markle seems to be telling the truth because it's hard to believe that the royal family are "so perfect" but they're just "best" in hiding skeletons inside royal closets like the ancient scandal of Anne Boleyn who was beheaded by King Henry VIII; accusing Anne of adultery because she couldn't gave Henry a male heir. For God sake, woman's womb is not a machine wherein you can dictate what she will conceive.

    “They don’t just report the news, they create it” - WOW ! That’s powerful and 100% accurate in today’s world! Not only tabloids, sadly enough, but msm, respected magazines/news media papers both online and in print! It’s sad because media is powerful! There’s a place where media can break the barrier of accurate corruption and prevent it, or as Meghan put it, can create and destroy people if not accurate! This couple has a right to be who they choose ... I think Princess Di would be so proud of Harry and at the same time deeply pained by what the media is doing to them as they did this to her and these boys growing up! No doubt she’d be deeply saddened by Harry and Williams distant relationship, if any relationship still exist! No doubt if she were alive things would be different with the 2 brothers. She’s most definitely be the glue, unlike Charles ! Continued best wishes to this couple as well as the extended family!

Oprah should go on the field and interview war rape victims and the hungry and much much more suffering of women. And children. They ACTUALLY do NOT sleep because of hunger. Most people do not have a bed. This interview is PATHETIC. Megan should of Married an American and got Divorced again. This is a waste of time.

    Thank you Meghan and Harry for being brave. As a British person, I feel embarrassed for how badly the press and some people have treated Meghan. She is an amazing mother! As a child I was taught in school that telling the truth is bad. We were punished for speaking out against injustice. And made to feel that children told lies in school, and adults were good. TATTLETALE: a person, especially a child, who secretly tells someone in authority, especially a teacher, that someone else has done something bad, often in order to cause trouble Tattletale is in the English Dictionary. I think it is about time this is banned. Being a Whistleblower takes guts and courage. It is not easy. But for some of us, we need to protect our future generation, which is why we speak out. Well done Meghan and Harry. I don't care about being popular. I only care about TRUTH, LOVE, COMPASSION AND EMPATHY. GOD BLESS!

    Sorry but I’m not sympathetic to much of this. 1. She expects us to believe that she knew little about the Royal Family and did not research when she was planning to marry him but in next breath says she looked up the National Anthem,. 2. She says she thought meeting the Queen would be like meeting a Hollywood Celebrity - yeah just like meeting Kim Kardasian. 3. She says she was lonely in the castle and couldn’t see her friends for lunch but she spent $500K on a trip to NYC for a baby shower. 4. They both complain that the money stopped when they chose to step away - welcome to our life. You walk away from your job and responsibilities but still expect to receive money for security? This coming from a man who has not paid a penny for anything his whole life and he begrudgingly has to spend money to “protect his son”. Come on! Maybe use some of the £100Ms from Netflix to pay for your own security, like every other celebrity has to. 5. The statement of the conversation about the colour of the baby’s skin is an awful thing to happen but make it clear, it was a conversation with one person and what was the context? To use that to shower everyone involved with the racist card is inverted racism. If you are going to throw that out there then you need to qualify the comment. To say it would be harmful to the person is BS because what you have done is harmful to everyone. And finally if this was all racist, then why was the media glowing throughout the romance and wedding? If they were racist they would have been so from the beginning. The media turned on her because of her bad behaviour. Brats don’t like being told they are not behaving properly so they sulk and spit back. This is what they have done here. She should take a leaf out of her own book and do what she said her mother has practiced. Silent Dignity.

She’s so jealous of Kate, who someone she can never be a Woman with class and dignity. They make accusations without naming names, in my family we are not white and we all ask questions about the baby skin color will they be dark or light not out of racism but out of curiosity not everything is subject to scrutiny. We ask about the eyecolor and the hair texture too because everybody is unique and that’s nothing new.

    Megan writing the script for a story to sell. Wont be long to she treats the Royal family and the UK like her father. She would never have married Harry if he was not a Prince. All good for a story she will sell for multi millions. Megan complains about others talking to the media but has talked to the media many times her self. Double standards Megan. We in the UK know you never wanted to live here and if you had just said Royal life dosnt suit me and you and Harry had left we would have backed you. But the reality is we see through you and see you are writing the script for a story to sell and Harry will be thrown to the side in your life at some point like every one else in your past.
