Meghan Markle Lets Out Her Real Feelings About The Royal Family

Meghan Markle did not hold back when speaking to Oprah Winfrey about her real feelings when it comes to the royal family. In her first televised interview since moving to the United States with her husband Prince Harry, Meghan candidly shared her thoughts on what has transpired in her personal life over the past couple of years (via CBS). At one point during the preview clip released ahead of the full interview, which is set to air on March, 7, 2021, Oprah asks Meghan how she feels about the palace hearing her "speak [her] truth today[.]" Meghan then tells Oprah that she doesn't understand how the palace could expect her and Harry to "be silent," given what has transpired since the two wed in 2018. 

"I don't know how they could expect that after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that the Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us," Meghan tells Oprah during the highly-anticipated interview. "And if that comes with risk of losing things, I mean I — there's a lot that's been lost already," she adds. And that's not all.
