Meghan Markle was seen breaking down in tears as she discussed the death threats she’s received that have caused her to fear the safety of her children, in an emotional scene in her and Prince Harry‘s Netflix documentary series.
In the fifth episode, released today, Meghan, 41, and Harry, 38, discussed the attention they’ve received over the years and how it's left them worried for their safety, and that of their two children, Archie and Lilibet.
Meghan said: “I think people need to really understand, you know, when you plant a seed that is so hateful, what it can grow into.”
The Duchess of Sussex then emotionally recalled having flipped through a security programme a couple of days prior, when she was confronted with a vicious death threat.
Meghan continued: “I was going to the manual for the security team at home and I happened to flip to a page about online monitoring, and they were like if you see a tweet like this, please report it to the head of security immediately.
“And it just said ‘Megan just needs to die, someone needs to kill her. Maybe it should be me.’
“And I was just like okay that’s what is actually like out in the world, because of people creating hate…”
As tears started to fall, Meghan added: “…And I’m a mum. It’s my real life you know. And that’s the piece where you see it and you go, you’re making people want to kill me. It’s not a tabloid, it’s not a story, you are making me scared.”
A concerned-looking Harry placed a supporting hand on his wife’s back as she continued to cry.
Meghan went on to say that she would stay up in the middle of the night as she worried about the safety of her children.
She said she looked up and down the hallway thinking: “Are we safe? Are the doors locked? Is security on? Are my babies safe?"
“That’s real,” Meghan added.
“And you’ve created it for what? Because you’re bored, you want to sell papers, its real what you’re doing. And that’s the piece I don’t think people fully understand.”
Harry said moments earlier that “the most troubling part of this is the number of British journalists interacting with and amplifying the hate and lies”, giving credibility in what he called “an abuse of power.”
He added: “That needs to be acknowledged."
