Prince Harry says he is “ashamed” of how he responded to wife Meghan Markle’s suicidal confession, which she spoke about in her interview with Oprah back in March.
The 36-year-old royal sat down with Oprah Winfrey in the AppleTV+ documentary series, The Me You Can’t See, which the pair co-produced, where he went into detail about his own mental health.

Meghan, 39, opened up about her thoughts about wanting to end her life to Harry in January 2019, right before they were due to attend an event at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
“It’s incredibly triggering to potentially lose another woman in my life,” he said, referring to the loss of his mother Diana.
“My biggest regret is not making more of a stance earlier on in my relationship with my wife and calling out racism than when I did,” Harry said.
“My mother was chased to her death while she was in a relationship with someone who wasn’t white. And now look what’s happened.”
Harry is referring to Diana’s then-romantic interest Dodi Fayed, who died in the same car crash.
“You want to talk about history repeating itself? They’re not going to stop until she (Meghan) dies,” Harry added.
Harry told Oprah in the docuseries that he was “ashamed” by how he responded to his then-pregnant wife, who detailed “the practicalities of how she was going to end her life.”
“She hadn’t lost it, she wasn’t ‘crazy’, she wasn’t self-medicating, be it through pills or through alcohol. She was absolutely sober. She was completely sane,” Harry 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, I am somewhat ashamed of the way that I dealt with it.”
He said they only had time for a “quick cuddle” before they were due to arrive at their public appearance. “I was ashamed that it got this bad. I was ashamed to go to my family, because to be honest with you, like a lot of other people my age could probably relate to, I know that I’m not going to get from my family what I need,” Harry said.
