In the mental health documentary series —The Me You Can’t See–Prince Harry said that he had quit his royal life because he did not want to lose his wife Meghan Markle like the way he lost his mother, Princess Diana, who died during a car accident in 1997.
“My mother was chased to her death when she was in a relationship with someone who wasn’t white, and now look what’s happened. You’re talking about history repeating itself? They’re not going to stop until she dies,” Harry remarked in the documentary series.
He added that it was incredibly triggering to potentially lose another woman (referring to Meghan) in his life. The Me You Can’t See series, released on Apple TV+, is jointly produced by Harry and U.S. talk show host Oprah Winfrey.
Harry also shed some light on Meghan’s struggle with her suicidal thoughts when the couple was living with the royal family. He said: “The thing that stopped her from seeing it through was how unfair it would be on me after everything that had happened to my mum and to now be put in a position of losing another woman in my life, with a baby inside of her, our baby.”
Earlier in March, Meghan Markle, who belongs to a multiracial background, told Oprah in an interview that there were concerns about her first child Archie’s skin colour in the British royal family when she was pregnant.
last year, the couple, who married in 2018, left their royal duties and moved to California.
When Princess Diana died in Paris while she was travelling with her Egyptian partner in a car which met with an accident as paparazzi chased them, Harry was only 12 years old.
