Duchess Meghan: Harry helped her in the "worst time"

Duchess Meghan (41) spoke about her mental problems in the latest episode of her podcast "Archetypes". In the "worst time" of her life, her husband Prince Harry (38) stood by her side. Harry said he "found someone I could call." She does not elaborate whether Meghan means a psychologist or psychotherapist. "I called this woman," she continues. She was just in the supermarket, "I heard the beeping [of the cash register]". Meghan said, "I need help, and she could hear how bad I was."

"I think it's important for all of us to be really honest about what we need and not be afraid to make peace with it and ask [for help]," Meghan said.

The Duchess had already spoken about her mental health problems in the scandalous interview with Oprah Winfrey (68) in March 2021. She was "ashamed" to reveal these problems to Harry. "But I knew if I didn't say it, I would. I just didn't want to be alive anymore." This "constant" thought was "clear, real and frightening".

She also told Winfrey about a situation at the Royal Albert Hall in 2019. At the time, Meghan was pregnant with her son Archie (3). Photos from the evening show Harry constantly holding her hand. "We were both just trying to hold on," Meghan explained. Every time the lights went out in the event hall, she "cried". She continued: "I think it's so important that people remember that you have no idea what someone is going through behind closed doors (...) even the people who smile and like the brightest lights shine. You have to have compassion for what might really be going on."
