His wife, Meghan Markle, recently shocked viewers when revealed during a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey that she had suicidal thoughts when she was pregnant with her first child.

She said she became so low that she ‘just didn’t want to be alive anymore’.

“Look, I was really ashamed to say it at the time and ashamed to have to admit it to Harry especially, because I know how much loss he has suffered, but I knew that if I didn’t say it, then I would do it,” she said.
