Meghan responded that she wasn’t even allowed to have that conversation with Winfrey on her own, and that other people from the royals’ communications team had to be with her during the call.
In response to Winfrey’s question of “What is right about this time?” for an interview, Meghan responds, “Well, so many things.”
“We’re on the other side of a lot of life experience and also that we have the ability to make our own choices in a way that I couldn’t have said yes to you then. That wasn’t my choice to make,” said Meghan. “So, as an adult who lived a really independent life, to then go into this construct that is different than what I think people imagine it to be, it’s really liberating to have the right and the privilege in some ways to be able to say yes, I’m ready to talk.”
“To be able to just make a choice on your own and just be able to speak for yourself,” added Meghan, who gave up her acting career when she wed Harry.
