What did Meghan Markle tell Oprah?

The former Suits actress told Oprah: “I just didn’t want to be alive any more. And that was very clear and real and frightening.

“I just didn’t see a solution.

“I would sit up at night, and I was just like, ‘I don’t understand how all of this is being churned out’ — and again I wasn’t seeing it — but it’s almost worse when you feel it through the expression of my mom or my friends or them calling me crying like: ‘Meg, they’re not protecting you.’

“And I realised it was all happening just because I was breathing.”
