Meghan Markle reveals how Harry helped with life-changing phone call at ‘worst’ point of her life | The Sun

MEGHAN Markle has revealed how Prince Harry helped her with a life-changing phone call at the “worst” point of her life.

The Duchess of Sussex opened up about her mental health struggles while speaking on episode five of Archetypes.


She has previously spoken about feeling suicidal while a working member of the Royal Family.

During her tell-all chat with Oprah Winfrey, the duchess said her mental health battle left her feeling like she "didn't want to be alive anymore" – but she was never offered support as it "wouldn't be good for the institution".

And now during the 55-minute instalment of her podcast, titled The Decoding of Crazy released today, the former Suits star broached the subject with actresses Constance Wu, Jenny Slate and Deepika Padukone, Meghan.

Bollywood star Padukone recalled her own mental health struggles and how she ended up in a “dark place”.

She explained: “You just feel hopeless. There is this feeling of emptiness and hollowness and hopelessness.”

Padukone told how she got help after talking to a family friend who was a counsellor.

Meghan then went on to explain that when she was at her “worst point”, her husband, Harry, made a mental health referral for her.

She said: “My husband had found a referral for me to call. And I called this woman, and she didn’t even know I was calling her … and she was checking out at the grocery store.

“I could hear the little beep, beep … She could hear the dire state that I was in.”

“But I think it’s for all of us to be really honest about what it is that you need and to not be afraid and make peace with that, to ask for it.”

In the interview with Oprah last year Meghan revealed she had previously broke down in tears as she revealed she told Prince Harry she "didn’t want to be alive anymore".

One night, while suffering suicidal thoughts, Meghan claimed that she forced herself to go to an event with Harry, 36, – because she felt she couldn’t be left alone, for fear of what she might do.

And she said while the lights were down during the Cirque du Soleil premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in January 2019, she was "weeping" while clutching Harry's hand until his knuckles were white.

The Duchess of Sussex, who was six months pregnant at the time, said she would cry while the lights were down in the royal box before she would compose herself for the cameras and smile during the intervals.

Meghan revealed: “I was ashamed to say it at the time and ashamed to have to admit it to Harry because of how much loss he suffered.

“But I knew that if I didn’t say it I would do it – because I just didn’t want to be alive anymore.

“I didn’t want to be alive anymore. That was a very clear and real and frightening, constant thought.
