This isn’t the only detail about their experience with the British royal family Prince Harry and Meghan are disclosing. The 39-year-old California native explained why she felt ready to speak up, even though Oprah approached her for an interview back in March 2018.
“That we’re on the other side of a lot of, a lot of life experience that’s happened. And also that we have the ability to make our own choices in a way that I couldn’t have said yes to you then,” Meghan admitted. “That wasn’t my choice to make.”
“So,” she continued, “as an adult who lived a really independent life to then go into this construct that is different than I think what people imagine it to be, it’s really liberating to be able to have the right and the privilege in some ways to be able to say, ‘Yes, I’m ready to talk.’ To say it for yourself….To be able to just make a choice on your own and just be able to speak for yourself.”
