Prince Harry contradicts Meghan’s Oprah claim in new interview


A TV presenter claims that the Duke of Sussex had a “slip of the tongue” during a recent podcast appearance that contradicted the Duchess’ account.

On May 13, the Duke of Sussex told Dax Shepard’s podcast that he sought counseling because of his difficulties as a working royal, and that Meghan pushed him to do so.

However, in the couple’s well publicized TV appearance with Oprah in March, Meghan said she was denied help.

She claimed: “I went to the institution and I said that I needed to go somewhere to get help.

“I said, ‘I’ve never felt this way before and I need to go somewhere’.

“And I was told that I couldn’t, that it wouldn’t be good for the institution.”


Speaking on Sky News Australia, Australian presenter Andrew Bolt commented on the discrepancy between the two comments, saying it was strange Harry could seek assistance but Meghan could not.

He stated: “Didn’t she say in her notorious interview with Oprah Winfrey that when she wanted to go see a therapist herself Buckingham Palace refused her permission?

“Prince Harry, the actual prince could get therapy but his wife could not?”

Daisy Cousens, a royal commentator, appeared to agree with him, saying: “It is pretty extraordinary, I didn’t actually pick that up until you mentioned it.

“That is very well spotted because there is a giant disconnect there between the two stories. Quite a slip of the tongue from Harry.

“The whole big point they made in the interview was that the Palace would not let Meghan get any therapy because they thought it would look bad.

“I am sorry but if this is true why would Prince Harry be allowed to get therapy?”

It comes after Harry discussed his difficulties as a senior member of the Royal Family in the new Apple TV+ documentary The Me You Can’t See.

During the same interview, Prince Harry called the First Amendment “bonkers” and acknowledged that he doesn’t understand it, prompting criticism.

He said: “I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers.

“I don’t want to start going down the First Amendment route because that’s a huge subject and one which I don’t understand because I’ve only been here a short time.

“But, you can find a loophole in anything.

“You can capitalise or exploit what’s not said rather than uphold what is said.”

The First Amendment guarantees the right to free expression in the United States and is seen as one of the cornerstones of liberty. The limits of protection are not explicitly defined in the constitution, and it does not extend to private organizations such as corporations.
