In an interview with American magazine The Cut, Meghan, 41, talked about her life as a royal and why she and the Duke of Sussex moved to America.
Talking about her exit from the royal family, the Duchess said that “forgiveness takes a lot of effort”.
He also spoke about Prince Harry’s relationship with his father, the Prince of Wales.
Asked by journalist Alison P Davies on Sunday about the implications of her privacy case against the Mail, Meghan said: “Harry told me, ‘I lost my father in the process.’
“It doesn’t have to be the same for them as it was for me, but it’s their decision.”
A spokeswoman for the Duchess later told BBC News that Meghan was referring to her own father, from whom she had separated, saying she hoped this would not happen to her husband.
A source close to Prince Charles told the PA news agency that he would be sad if Prince Harry thinks their relationship is broken: “The Prince of Wales loves both of his sons”.
The 37-year-old prince has previously said his father “stopped taking my calls” when the couple stepped back in 2020 as senior working royals.
Under the arrangement, the couple renounced their Royal Highness titles, and were able to work to become financially independent. Harry retained the title of prince from birth.
Prior to this, the Sussexes had reportedly set out a vision to continue working in the Commonwealth as working royals and earn their money, in the hope that this would reduce the “noise” about them.
Meghan told The Cut: “That, for whatever reason, is not something we were allowed to do, even though many other family members do the exact same thing.”
Prince Harry and Meghan initially moved to Canada in January 2020 after announcing they would step back from royal duties.
But, when Canada said it would stop providing security for the family, the family moved to California, where they lived in a house provided by media mogul Tyler Perry before buying their property in Montecito.
Meghan is media dynamite, so a fairly gentle interview with some open-to-explain comments has exploded its way onto the first pages.
For their fans, it was just another piece of the unreasonable, grumpy-minded pressures of royal life that forced Meghan and Harry to move to California.
To her critics, this was more deceptive self-promotion, confiscating quotes such as Meghan saying that her wedding to Harry was welcomed in South Africa as “when Mandela was freed from prison”. was.
The article describes him as living in “the home equivalent of a billionaires dressed in denim” and that his complaints can go awry with families worried about paying energy bills.
But the interview turned some contradictions in front of Harry and Meghan.
They wanted to get away from the suffocation of royal life, but their royal ties are their most bankable assets.
It’s like the old rockers who don’t want to talk about their early records, when that’s why people are interested.
They also wanted to avoid media intrusion and have become a part of the media with deals for Spotify and Netflix.
And Harry voiced the perennial royal dilemma: “If you do something, they criticize you. If you don’t do something, they criticize you anyway.”
Davis, a features writer who has previously interviewed celebrities such as Jada Pinkett Smith and Lena Dunham, asked Meghan if she thinks there is room for forgiveness between her and her royal in-laws and her own family.
The Duchess replied: “I think forgiveness is really important. It takes a lot of energy not to forgive.
“But it takes a lot of effort to forgive. I’ve made a really proactive effort, especially knowing that I can say anything.
