Harry’s ‘slip-up’ on podcast ‘exposes disconnect’ with Meghan’s claim to Oprah

Prince Harry made a "slip of the tongue" by saying that it was Meghan Markle that pushed him into having therapy on a recent podcast appearance, a TV host has claimed.

The Duke of Sussex told Dax Shepard’s podcast on May 13 that he sought therapy due to his struggles as a working royal and that it was Meghan who encouraged him to seek professional help.

But in her interview with Oprah in March, Meghan claimed she herself was refused help.

“I went to the institution and I said that I needed to go somewhere to get help," she said.

“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 Mr Bolt on Sky News Australia.

"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?" he asked.

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

He revealed how he resorted to drugs and alcohol to cope with the loss of his mum, Princess Diana.
