‘I went into it naively’: Meghan speaks about marrying into the Royal Family


Meghan and Harry are speaking to Oprah Winfrey in an interview being aired in the US. Here are some of the key quotes…

On her wedding day:

"It was like having an out-of-body experience and I was very present for," said Meghan.

"I think we were both really aware, even in advance of that, this, this wasn't our day, this was the day that was planned for the world."

On marrying into the Royal Family:


"I will say I went into it naively because I didn't grow up knowing much about the Royal Family," said Meghan.

"It wasn't something that was part of conversation at home, it wasn't something that we followed."

On the gender of her next baby:

Asked if she knows whether she is having a boy or a girl, Meghan said: "We do this time. I will wait for my husband to join us and we can share that with you."

On newspaper reports she had reduced the Duchess of Cambridge to tears:

Meghan said this was "a turning point", and insisted it was Kate who made her cry.

Meghan said she did not want to be "disparaging to anyone" and claimed Kate apologised with flowers and a note "to take accountability".

It was not a "confrontation" and it would not be "fair" to Kate to go into detail, she said, adding it was "hard to get over" being blamed for something she did not do.
