I honestly didn’t know what to make of it. All the stuff she said was just awful what she has experienced but then again she is an actress so I just do not know.

I’d pay big money to see the royal family sit down and watch that goggle box style aha

I think there may be some truth in what she was saying, most people these days are affected by mental health problems so it's not like it's something unknown or strange. I am the same as you, I just don't know whether to believe it or not. As you say, she's an actress, but her experience of transitioning into the royal family was not as smooth as Kate's experience. I do think the royal family and media could have treated her a lot better

Same boat, pretty much. I don't think it's cut-and-dry- I'm sure at least some of what Megan said must have been true, and it's sad to hear she's been suffering. But on the other hand, I think there was a culture clash at play- I mean looking at it, you have a Hollywood-style American actress entering the stuffy, British institution that is the monarchy- an entirely different form of celebrity, with its own protocol and traditions. That was bound to cause difficulties. As for the press- they are...well, I won't swear here. But they generally love tearing people down. Idk, I wish them all the best, but the idea of airing such things on TV is complicated because there's the institution, which yes you should be able to critique, but then there's the actual family, and the latter must be crushed to have personal issues spoken about in front of millions.

She put forth a series of opinions, falsehoods and some interesting insights. Alas, her opinion on what others intentions are is not truth though. Rod Liddles comments on it were pretty apt to be honest.
