In the second volume of episodes of the Harry & Meghan docuseries, Doria Ragland broke down when describing Meghan Markle’s suicidal thoughts. She said it was hard for her to learn that her daughter had suffered from low mental health while living in the UK.
The final three episodes of the new Netflix documentary “Harry and Meghan” are out today, following the release last week of episodes one, two and three.
Early viewers of episode four will today have seen a segment in which Ms Ragland discussed her daughter’s mental health.
She said: “That she would actually think of not wanting to be here, that… that’s not an easy one for a mum to hear… You know.”
The Duchess’s mother appeared to be holding back tears.
Meghan’s mother, who lives near the Duke and Duchess in California, added that “it felt like they were running”.
Commenting in anticipation of the documentary’s release, a Buckingham Palace aide earlier this month told the Times: “We’re steeling ourselves for what’s coming in the slight spirit of tedium.
“It’s a curious-looking form of privacy they’ve sought.”
