General practitioner Dr. Hilary Jones spoke of his shock during the interview in which Meghan Markle reported on her mental health problems within the royal family.
Dr. Hilary said the couple clearly sought comfort from one another as they were isolated within the family.
But he said the couple, who are supportive of each other, might have been more likely to have created a barrier between them and the family.
In response to host Piers Morgan’s claims that some of Meghan’s statements were false, Dr. Hilary: “Whether or not her criticism was justified was real to her.
“She felt that she couldn’t approach anyone with complete confidence without the press picking it up and talking about the problems that lay in her heart.”
“Whether we believe her or not, it doesn’t matter that it was real to her.
“And to express the fact that she had suicidal thoughts and was prevented from getting help, it is extraordinary to hear that.”
Piers responded to claims that Archie had no title because of the color of his skin – while there are claims the reason is in Royal Protocol’s permanent record.
Dr. Hilary added, “They probably cried in each other’s arms, they probably felt very marginalized, very isolated.
“What was needed was reconciliation.”
He said Oprah listened and gave the couple the opportunity to explain what happened.
