Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s televised interview with Oprah Winfrey has attracted over 5,000 complaints to the broadcasting watchdog, Ofcom, and has seen a string of celebrities share their opinions on the couple. Now, American blogger Perez Hilton has given his views on the two-hour long chat which saw the Duke and Duchess speak about their decision to step down as senior working members of the Royal Family.
He’s doing things which make things worse with his family
Perez, 43, said he had initially hoped that Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, had dealt with their differences in private, away from the glaring eyes of the world.
During the bombshell chat, the former actress said she had been told of a discussion about the skin colour of their then-unborn son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Harry also shared with Winfrey, 67, that he had been “financially cut off” by his father, Prince Charles, 72.
“I think that you are absolutely able to and should speak your truth, however, I have learnt the hard way, I think family is sacred, even if they’re [family] full of dysfunction,” confessed Perez, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira.
The social media star went on to tell Sippin’ The Tea host Matt Dillon: “They [Harry and Meghan] described a dysfunctional family and I think they would agree with this, I don’t think they would describe the British Royal Family as toxic – dysfunctional, yes.”
Hilton, who became a household name in Britain following his appearance on Celebrity Big Brother back in 2015, went on to add that should somebody be part of a “toxic family” he would understand “cutting ties with them”.
“Prince Harry himself said he wants to make things better with his family but he’s doing things which make things worse with his family,” he exclaimed.
When probed on Harry and Meghan’s decision to follow in the footsteps of Diana, Princess of Wales’ decision to take part in an interview with BBC Panorama, Perez added: “They could have shared their truth and spoken about the media.
“They could have spoken about the institution and made it about that, they made it personal – made it about the family as well.”
The outspoken star continued: “I wish they would have tried to fix and deal with their family issues, as a family, privately.”
In the interview, Meghan, who found fame playing Rachel Zane in the US hit legal drama, Suits, said that her time within the Royal Family was almost “unsurvivable”, adding that she had suicidal thoughts at one point.
Meghan said: “I just didn’t want to be alive any more. And that was a very real and clear and frightening and constant thought.
“When I joined that family, that was the last time until we came here that I saw my passport, my driver’s licence, my keys, all that gets turned over.
“I went to the institution and I said that I needed to go somewhere to get help, said I had never felt that way before and need to go somewhere, and I was told that I couldn’t, that it wouldn’t be good for the institution.”
Despite claiming that she had her passport taken from her, Meghan took around 13 international holidays during her time as a royal, including a trip to New York before the arrival of her son.
She later claimed that ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2019, that they had actually held a private ceremony three days before, a claim which was later denied by clergy officials.
