“Meghan is a great person and I think the epitome of strength, the epitome of confidence, the epitome of just selflessness, and the epitome of everything is just her and everything that she’s gone through,” the 39-year-old told Weitzman Chief Marketing Officer Behnaz Ghahramani on Wednesday.
“And I know it’s not easy, and you can see from the interview that it wasn’t easy,” Williams continued. “But she had so much poise and she still had so much class.”
On March 7, CBS aired a two-hour tell-all that Markle, 39, and her husband Prince Harry, 36, gave to Winfrey, 67.
During the televised sit-down, Markle described feeling so isolated and miserable inside the royal family that she had suicidal thoughts. The former television star also said she sought mental health help through the palace’s human resources department but was told there was nothing it could do.
Markle, who is biracial, also alleged that a member of the royal family had “concerns” about the color of her unborn child’s skin.
