• Duchess Meghan suffered from depression
  • During those hard times, she was still living in London
  • Prince Harry sent her to therapy

Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry have been speaking up about their mental health. Particularly Meghan, who declared in an interview with Oprah Winfrey to have suffered from depression. She explained that at one point it got so bad that her husband sent her to therapy.

In her podcast Archetypes she spoke up about the worst time of her life, just before the birth of her son Archie, during which she didn't feel emotionally healthy. There was even talk of suicidal thoughts. Meghan explained: 

"I think at my worst point, being finally connected to someone that, you know, my husband had found a referral for me to call."

Harry persuaded Duchess Meghan to take the important step

Her husband persuaded the ex-actress to take this vital first step toward getting better. "And I called this woman. She didn't know I was even calling her. And she was checking out at the grocery store. I was like, 'Hi,' and I'm introducing myself and can literally hear her going, 'Wait, sorry. I'm just. Who is this?' Um, and saying I need help. She could hear the dire state that I was in."

"I lay awake at night and just couldn't understand how it was all going to end well... I just didn’t want to be alive anymore. And that’s a very clear, and real and frightening constant thought." said Meghan in an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021.

Then the two famously pulled the ripcord, leaving life as royals behind and heading to the U.S.
