Meghan Markle's openness about mental health is more Important than Ever

Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, bravely opened up about having suicidal thoughts while pregnant with her son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, during her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

It was one of the most emotional moments in the chat, and her candour immediately sparked a conversation about mental health.

"Look, I was really ashamed to say it at the time and ashamed to have to admit it to Harry, especially, because I know how much loss he has suffered, but I knew that if I didn’t say it, then I would do it," Meghan told Oprah. "I just didn’t want to be alive anymore."

Meghan explained that the relentless, negative media coverage of her meant she felt extreme distress, but she went on to confide in her husband, Prince Harry, and then reached out for help from a professional. Her story is one of resilience and has made big waves in terms of lessening the stigma around mental health.
