Janina Gavankar Says "Emails and Texts" Prove Meghan and Harry's Claims
Countless of Meghan Markle's friends are coming out of the woodwork to defend her and Harry against the onslaught of tabloid misinformation. Now Meghan's close friend Janina Gavankar hopes to bring more reassurance to Meghan and Harry's claims.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry dropped quite a few bombshells in their eye-opening interview with Oprah. The pair finally felt capable to tell their side of the story and bare their hearts now that they have stepped down as senior royals. While countless British media outlets are alleging Harry and Meghan have lied, Meghan's friend Janina Gavankar backs up her claims.
"Emails and Texts" Prove Harry & Meghan Claims
Many British media outlets and personalities like Piers Morgan are alleging that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's claims are lies. Piers Morgan even shouted he did not believe Meghan Markle had suicidal thoughts, she reached out for help from the institution, and that he wouldn't "believe Meghan Markle if she read me a weather report."
Actress Janina Gavankar joined ITV's This Morning to come to her longtime friend's defense. Speaking of Oprah with Meghan and Harry, Janina said Harry and Meghan knew she would be speaking on the show and, "We are all happy that we are in a new era. We get to tell the truth. Things are different now. But I will say, I don't speak for them. I speak for myself." Janina had even watched Oprah With Meghan and Harry with Meghan and Harry.
Janina had been in contact with Meghan throughout her difficult time she described in her interview. Meghan had told her that, "She had no one to turn to within the institution."
She explained, "After reading this short statement that came out from Buckingham Palace today, I thought two things. [On] one side, I thought I am so thankful that they are finally acknowledging the experience but on the other side, I know that the family and the staff were well aware of the extent of it and their recollections may vary, ours don't because we lived through it with them. There are many emails and texts to support that."
Janina was very level-headed when Philip Schofield asked why she thought Meghan would attempt to "nuke" the Royal family. Janine countered his word usage by saying, "I don't think the intention was to 'nuke' them. I think it was just finally a chance to tell their truth. Meghan's always been a very open person. She's always shared parts of herself in the way we always do. But that all changed when she joined the family. We watched as a wall was built around her. She was very isolated."
Janina is personally very happy to see what a change Harry and Meghan have gone through since stepping down as senior members of the Royal family. "I think they are feeling free. It's nice to see them feel free. And now they can get back to what they really were focused on."
Janina also was asked about the bullying investigation that was launched by the Palace and that she knows exactly what happened. She explained, "I have known her for 17 years and I have seen the way that she regards the people around her and I can say she's not a bully. But I can also say that I am personally glad that people are doing their due diligence because I also know why someone had to leave and it was for gross misconduct."
