Meghan’s privacy plea was denied by an expert as the Duchess waited to re-enter the spotlight.
After the Duchess of Sussex initiated a legal battle against the Daily Mail for invading her privacy, Meghan Markle’s candid interview with Oprah Winfrey “doesn’t sit well.”
Meghan Markle was “not looking for solitude” after her dramatic exit from the Royal Family, according to a royal expert, and was instead waiting for her privacy-related court matter to be resolved before re-entering the “spotlight.” The Duchess of Sussex filed a copyright claim against the Mail on Sunday after excerpts from her private letter were published, but she later appeared on Oprah Winfrey in a candid interview with her husband Prince Harry.
Expert Jonathan Sacerdoti, speaking to Royally Us on Meghan’s remark that her Oprah interview was “cathartic,” said: “I have to say, that bit jumped out to me.”
“So they said they waited because of the court case with the Mail, and of course that court case with the Mail was all about one of the things we hear from them a lot, which is that they feel their privacy is invaded and intruded upon.
“It was about a letter Meghan Markle’s estranged father received, and he leaked some of the things she stated in the letter to the media, and she then filed a copyright claim against the newspaper for publishing it.”
“That’s good; it fits with their image of wanting privacy and the press to leave them alone, but then they waited until the court case was completed, and then they went and did this enormous interview that was then televised around the world.
“Those two things don’t sit well with me, nor with a lot of other people.
“That’s not someone seeking privacy; that’s someone waiting for their privacy-related court matter to conclude before resuming their public life.”
On March 7, 2021, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sat down with US talk show presenter Oprah Winfrey for a two-hour bombshell interview that aired on CBS.
The pair discussed their reasons for departing the Royal Family and their troubled relationship with Buckingham Palace during the wide-ranging conversation.
The Royal Family was accused of disregarding Meghan’s mental health to the point where she felt suicidal, as well as Palace officials refusing to correct damaging tabloid articles about the Duchess.
