Los Angeles (AP) - Duchess Meghan said she had suicidal thoughts during her difficult time in the British royal family.

"I just didn't want to be alive anymore," said Meghan while broadcasting an eagerly awaited interview by the US broadcaster CBS with presenter Oprah Winfrey.

"I thought it would solve the situation for everyone".

At that time, she was also afraid of being alone because she could have harmed herself.

She turned to her husband, Prince Harry, and the palace to help her.
