When there is no more, there is still. On her site, The Oprah Magazine, Oprah Winfrey unveiled this Monday, March 8, a scene cut from her interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. In this clip which lasts just over a minute, the Duchess of Sussex recounts how she has lost control over her private life since meeting Prince Harry. The former actress of Suits notably claims her right to privacy: “I think everyone has a fundamental right to privacy” launches Archie’s mother to Oprah, before illustrating her point with an example of the everyday life: “If you are at work, there is a picture of your child on your desk and one of your coworkers says to you:” Oh my god, your child is so cute. It’s fantastic. Can I pick up your phone and see all the pictures of him? “You’re going to say ‘no, that’s the only picture I’m comfortable sharing with you,’ she explained.
She then continued her reflection by drawing a direct parallel with the many attacks on her privacy of which she was the victim, in particular on the part of the photographers: “They insist:” No, but you have already shown me that one. You have to show me everything. You know what, I’m just going to hire someone to sit outside your house or hide in the bushes, and take pictures in your backyard. You lost your right to privacy … because you shared an image with me “”.
A question of limits and respect
If Meghan ensures that her husband and she understand that it is impossible for them to maintain total privacy as public figures, the couple nevertheless wish to keep control of their privacy by sharing only the “parts of their life” with which they are “comfortable”: “There is no one on Instagram or on social networks who would tell you” because I shared this photo, this gives you the right to have access to my photo album whole. Go ahead and look at her. “Nobody would want that. So it’s a question of boundaries. And it’s a matter of respect.” defended Meghan Markle who does not want to relive these bad experiences for her second pregnancy.
