Meghan Markle’s latest bombshell interview
‘It’s complicated… but Harry is ever the optimist’: Meghan hints at woes with the Royals after Queen’s death in new bombshell interview where she talks about her ‘warm’ relationship with late monarch
- Duchess of Sussex has spoken to Variety about a wide-range of issues including ‘misconceptions’ about her
Meghan Markle has today given a new interview with one of her favoured US magazines where she paid tribute to the Queen and hinted that her death had been ‘complicated’ for Prince Harry amid ongoing issues with King Charles III and Prince William – but declared her husband remains her ‘ever-optimistic’.
The Duchess of Sussex has spoken to Variety about a wide-range of issues including ‘misconceptions’ about her since she married her royal husband in 2018, claiming their ‘love story’ had inspired the world because ‘people love love’.
Meghan took part in a glamorous photo shoot for the interview, and was also filmed talking about her recent trip to the UK with Harry where their pseudo-royal tour was interrupted by Her Majesty’s death aged 96.
But in a hint that her death had been troublesome for Harry, who reportedly found out about the passing of his grandmother the just five minutes before the rest of the world, she said: ‘It’s been a complicated time, but my husband, ever the optimist, said: “Now she’s reunited with her husband”.’
Amid claims that she and Harry have set out to damage the Royal Family since emigrating in 2020, Meghan told the magazine that she is ‘proud’ of her relationship with queen and had a ‘nice warmth’ with her.
She said: There’s been such an outpouring of love and support. I’m really grateful that I was able to be with my husband to support him, especially during that time. What’s so beautiful is to look at the legacy that his grandmother was able to leave on so many fronts. Certainly, in terms of female leadership, she is the most shining example of what that looks like. I feel deep gratitude to have been able to spend time with her and get to know her’.
In arguably her most wide-ranging interview yet, she revealed:
- She was ‘grateful’ to be alongside Harry and support him when the Queen died and spoke of treasuring their first engagement together. She said: ‘In big moments in life, you get a lot of perspective. It makes you wonder what you want to focus your energy on. Right now, we feel energized and excited about all of the things we’ve been building toward’;
- Meghan appeared to distance herself from the Netflix docu-series set for release. Suggesting left-wing filmaker Gloria Steinem had taken the lead she said: ‘It’s nice to be able to trust someone with our story — a seasoned director whose work I’ve long admired — even if it means it may not be the way we would have told it;
- On her bombshell interview with The Cut in September, which contained a series of attacks on the royals, she suggested she had been too trusting. She said: ‘I’ve had some time to reflect on it. Part of me is just really trusting, really open. I can survive it’;
