She Wanted to Kill Herself
A very shocking revelation shared was that things got so bad not only with the press treatment of Meghan, but also with the restriction in place for where she could go and what she could do because of “oversaturation” of her in the press, that she wanted to take her own life. She asked for help from the Palace because “I knew if I didn’t say it that I would do it.”
However, her going into treatment, as she was allegedly told, wouldn’t be a good look for the institution.
Feeling like there was something that could still be done, she went to HR. They were encouraging and understood her pain, but they said “’there’s nothing we can do because you’re not a paid employee of the institution,’” according to her. That was a true catalyst in their decision to step back from royal duties — not only the hit her mental health had taken, but the lack of desire by “the firm” to aid her in getting well. And no, she couldn’t just get up and drive or call an Uber to take herself to get mental health treatment. The palace had her passport, her drivers license and even her keys. She felt, and probably was, pretty much trapped.
