Harry contradicted Meghans mental health claim with slip of tongue – host

A TV host claimed that Prince Harry made a "slip of the tongue" when he said on a podcast that Meghan Markle encouraged him to seek therapy for mental health issues.

On May 13 last year the Duke of Sussex opened up on Dax Shepard’s podcast about seeking professional help due to struggling with the stresses of life as a working royal.

He said that it was his wife who pushed him in that direction.

In the couple's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired on March 8 of that year, Meghan claimed that she was refused help.

She told Oprah: "I went to the institution and I said that I needed to go somewhere to get help.

"I said, ‘I’ve never felt this way before and I need to go somewhere’. And I was told that I couldn't, that it wouldn’t be good for the institution."

This was questioned by Andrew Bolt on Sky News Australia, who asked: "Didn't she say in her notorious interview with Oprah Winfrey that when she wanted to go see a therapist herself Buckingham Palace refused her permission?"

"Prince Harry, the actual prince could get therapy but his wife could not?"

Royal commentator Daisy Cousens agreed, adding: "It is pretty extraordinary, I didn't actually pick that up until you mentioned it.

"That is very well spotted because there is a giant disconnect there between the two stories. Quite a slip of the tongue from Harry.

"The whole big point they made in the interview was that the Palace would not let Meghan get any therapy because they thought it would look bad.

"I am sorry but if this is true why would Prince Harry be allowed to get therapy?"

It came after Harry spoke more about his struggles living as a senior member of the Royal Family in Apple TV+ documentary The Me You Can't See.

There, he revealed he was "willing" to use alcohol and drugs to "mask" the anxiety he felt after Princess Diana's death.

It was also revealed this week that the Sussexes may be set for a second interview with Oprah.

The Daily Star has approached the Duke and Duchess for comment.
