Prince Harry has laid bare one of his darkest moments in 2019, when he found his wife Meghan in floods of tears. Speaking to The Daily Telegraph the Duke said that the incident occured when the couple were living in Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor estate, just after the couple’s son Archie had been born.
Harry described his “breaking point” when he saw his wife sobbing in the Frogmore nursery, with this significant incident and a number of others leading to their eventual decision to step down as working royals in early 2020.
The Duke added that Meghan would be “dead” if she had been regularly reading the negative press stories about the couple.
He said: “I was coming back to Frogmore after Archie was born, and I would walk into the nursery and there she [Meghan] was in floods of tears, tears dripping on Archie while she was breast-feeding him.
“And she is someone who doesn’t read the stories.
“She would be dead if she was reading the stories.”
The Duke also told The Daily Telegraph that he was not aiming to destroy the monarchy through his revelations in media interviews, his memoir and the Sussexes’ recent Netflix series.
In contrast he argued that he was trying to save the firm from “themselves”, a theme that came out in recent interviews as he said he feels that it needs to reform.
He added that he felt it was his “life mission” to combat “the wrongs”, an implicit reference to the monarchy and the British press.

He added that when talking to the ghostwriter about his experiences in Afghanistan he would close his eyes and imagine that he was in the cockpit flying the same missions again.
Despite accusations from critics that he had revealed too many personal details about members of the royal family the Duke insisted that there were some things that he did not include in his memoir.
The Duke argued that there were certain interactions or incidents that occured between him and the Prince of Wales as well as the King that he did not want the “world” to know.
