In one of the episodes of the Netflix documentary series, Harry and Meghan Meghan Markle recalls wanting to end her life as royal tension and the British press add fuel to the fire by making her look like a villain. The British press is not only attacking her but also other members of her family. Mental health is a global problem that should not be ignored. And thank God Meghan Markle was brave enough to be vocal about it.
Meghan Markle says: “All this will stop if I’m not here”, it was a difficult battle for her with the British press, trying hard to portray her for what she is not. The British press went so far as to dig up her past. The British press not only leaked but planted stories.
Prince Harry says: “There’s leaking, but there’s also planting stories.” In the documentary series, we find out how the British press conspired with members of Buckingham Palace in digging up stories to smear Meghan’s reputation and they continued to follow her mother Doria Ragland’s every move. Harry makes it clear, “If you’re part of the Royal Rota, you prioritize the story over everyone else,” Harry says. “All royal news passes through the filter of all the newspapers in the royal rota, most of which, apart from the Telegraph, are tabloids.”
In the documentary series Harry and Meghan Megan’s mother, Doria Ragland, mentions how difficult it was for her as a mother to see her daughter Megan reach such a low point in her life. Ragland tried to fight back tears as she recalled the moment her daughter told her how badly her mental health had deteriorated while living in the palace and when British newspapers painted her as an enemy.
Doria Ragland says, “I remember her telling me she wanted to take her own life and it really broke my heart because I knew it was bad,” says Ragland, “but to be picked on by these vultures all the time. , just taking her spirit away, that she would actually think she didn’t want to be here … that’s not easy for a mother to hear, and I can’t protect her. “H can’t protect her.”
According to the latest WHO report on mental health, more than 300 million people, which is 4.4 percent of the world’s population, suffer from depression. These alarming figures reflect the wider prevalence of mental disorder in general. It is estimated that mental health conditions will affect a staggering one in four people at some point in their lives.
