Oprah sat down with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for the highly-anticipated tell-all that tackled the demise of the royal fairytale. 

How did Meghan go from being the promising princess to the villain in the story?

Prior to the interview, Oprah emphasized that no subject was off limits, Meghan didn’t know what she was going to ask, and she was not getting paid for the interview.

 

Meghan Said She Went Into the Marriage Naively

Meghan explained that while she was aware of the royals, she went into it blindly and “naively.” She explained that she didn’t know much about the royal family and didn’t follow the family through the years. She also didn’t Google her husband prior to the relationship/marriage because everything she needed to know “he was sharing with her.” 

“I didn’t fully understand what the job was,” she said in terms of what it means to be a working royal, she explained. Quickly, she learned that the perception and reality were two different things. “And that’s what was really tricky over those past few years is, is when the perception and reality are two very different things, and you’re being judged based on the perception, but you’re living the reality. There’s a complete misalignment and there’s no way to explain that to people,” she told Oprah. 

She explained that the idea, especially for Americans, is that it’s this fairy tale world. However, she didn’t think that the outside world is what happened in person, and quickly learned that this institution takes itself seriously. When she met Harry’s grandmother, she wasn’t just meeting the grandmother, she was meeting the Queen. And she needed to learn how to curtsy immediately!

However, she’s grateful for all that limited knowledge. “Thank god I didn’t know a lot about the family, thank god I haven’t researched,” she said, adding she’d be so much more nervous than she was. Instead, she was as nervous as any other woman meeting her significant others family.

 

Meghan and Harry Got Married Three Days Before the Televised Wedding

Meghan revealed that she and Harry tied the knot a few days prior to the wedding at Windsor Castle. She explained she wanted the union to be special for them and not just about the worldly spectacle that was televised in 2018. 

 

Kate Made Meghan Cry

About flower girl dresses! The story about Meghan making Kate cry was actually the opposite – Kate made her cry! Meghan said she didn’t want to get into the details cause it wouldn’t be fair to Kate as she apologized, however, she was upset at the way the media painted her as the villain especially when everyone in the “Institution” knew it wasn’t the truth. 

“So why didn’t somebody just say that?” Oprah asked about clearing up the rumors. “That’s a good question,” Meghan responded. 

Meghan said Kate is a good person and she believes she would’ve wanted to clear it up if the Palace allowed it. 

 

It’s a Girl!

Meghan and Harry told Oprah exclusively that they are welcoming a baby girl in the summer!

 

Meghan Was Silenced

When Oprah asked her if she was “silent or silenced,” Meghan said that it was “the latter.”

In terms of how the family silenced her, Meghan said that they initially told her and her loved ones to always say “no comment” to the media. “And we did,” she explained, adding that she assumed the Palace would protect her.  “I believed that,” she said of their promise, which she later regretted believing.

But all of that changed once they were married and it was made abundantly clear that they weren’t protecting her. “They were willing to lie to protect other members of the family, but they weren’t willing to tell the truth to protect me and my husband,” she said. 

 

Meghan Loves the Queen

Meghan emphasized that there’s two separate pieces to the family business — the family and the people running the Institution. She explained that she always loved being with the Queen and “being in her company.” During their first royal engagement, the duo had breakfast and even shared a blanket to stay warm when it was chilly. 

She described Queen Elizabeth as warm, inviting, and welcoming. 

 

Meghan Said It Became Lonely

If you’ve seen The Crown or any documentary about Princess Diana, the idea that the Palace is a lonely place isn’t a novel concept. Meghan explained that since she came from “freedom” and a lived a very full and busy life prior to becoming the Duchess of Sussex, she didn’t take well to being told that she couldn’t go out or do anything. “There was very little that I was allowed to do, so of course that breeds loneliness,” she explained. She related it to what we have all been feeling and experiencing during the coronavirus lockdown.

 

Archie Wasn’t Going to be Given Security, a Title, and They Were Concerned About His Skin Color

Meghan revealed that while she was pregnant, the Palace explained that since her unborn child wasn’t going to hold the title of “prince or princess” upon birth, the child wouldn’t need protection, which didn’t sit well with the mom-t0-be mainly because she blamed the Institution for allowing this monster tabloid machine to put them in danger in the first place, but then failed to provide the necessary protection.

When Oprah pressed for an explanation, Meghan said “there’s no explanation.”

“The idea of our son not being safe, and the idea of the first member of color in this family not being titled in the same way that other grandchildren would be,” didn’t sit well with her, especially due to a convention that explains that if Prince Charles were to become king, it automatically gives Prince Harry’s children the royal title.

She shut down rumors that it was her and Prince Harry’s decision not to give her child the title: “It’s not our decision to make,” adding that it’s her child’s “birth right.”

Additionally, she explained that the reason they didn’t step out for the iconic after-birth photo was because of the lack of security provided.  

Meghan explained that Harry relayed that the family was also having conversations about how dark Archie’s skin would be upon birth in tandem with conversations about his title/security. 

When Oprah asked who was having the conversations, Meghan declined to answer, noting: “I think that would be very damaging to them.”

Prince Harry added that he would never share anything pertaining to the conversation about Archie’s skin tone. 

 

Mental Health Is Not Acknowledged by the Palace

“I just didn’t see a solution,” Meghan said explained of the “unsurvivable” situation she was in.

She explained that with all the negative media attention on her, she “didn’t want to be alive anymore.” She explains she was so scared of her thoughts, she shared them with Harry.

She also revealed she asked the Institution for help and was told it “wouldn’t be good” a good look for them. Meghan clarified that she was trapped and couldn’t get help despite the suicidal thoughts. 

When she went to HR, she explained that they told her: “my heart goes out to you because we see how bad it is, but there’s nothing we can do because you’re not a paid employee of the Institution.”

However, she did find comfort in one of Diana’s best friends who understood what Meghan was going through. 

“You have no idea what’s going on behind closed doors,” she noted when Oprah brought up Meghan looking happy and joyful in photos. 

 

Is Meghan Afraid of Palace Backlash?

“I don’t know how they could expect that after all this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us,” Meghan said. 

She explained her truth is worth it even if it comes with the “risk of losing things” because she “lost a lot already.”

She hopes the takeaway for people watching is that “there’s another side” and “life is worth living.”

 

What Triggered Megxit?

When pressed about why they stepped down as senior members of the family, Prince Harry admitted that he asked for help numerous times and exhausted all of his options, but was given no support. He added that he grew concerned as he saw “history repeating itself.”

The situation with the press and the family was happening in the same kind of way as it did with his late mother, Diana, but he explained it was “far more dangerous” with the addition of social media. 

He explained that the very reason they left was a “lack of support and lack of understanding.”

However, they clarified that the intention was never to leave the family. They simply wanted to step down as senior members and live in the Commonwealth as many other royal family members continue to do, which they quickly learned wasn’t an option for them.

Upon leaving, Meghan said she felt like she “got her voice back.”

 

Prince Harry Did Not Blindside the Queen with Megxit

“I’ve never blindsided my grandmother. I have too much respect for her,” Harry said shooting down rumors that the couple’s decision to step down blindsided members of the family. 

Harry guessed that the rumors painting them in a negative light may have come from within the Institution. 

Harry even explained that they were very transparent about their intentions and had three calls with the Queen and two with his father, Prince Charles, “before he stopped taking my calls” about their decision to step down. They even put it in writing including when they would put out the announcement to the public. 

As for his reason — he did it for his family and for their mental health. 

 

Harry Did Not Ask the Family for Help When Meghan Was Suicidal

When Oprah asked why Harry didn’t ask the family for help when Meghan admitted she was having suicidal thoughts, he explained that he was “ashamed of admitting it to them.” 

“It’s a very trapping environment,” he said of being a royal adding that he didn’t have anyone to turn to for help and that the family has adopted a mentality that “this is just how it is.”

 

Harry Was Heartbroken When His Family Didn’t Defend Meghan

Harry noted that over 72 members of Parliament stood up against colonial undertones in media headlines about Meghan, but the royal family never supported her. 

“That hurts,” he said of his family’s silence over the two years. However, he also noted that he’s “acutely aware of where my family stand and how scared they are of the tabloids turning on them.”

 

Harry Says the Palace Needs the Tabloids and Vice-Versa

Harry went on to say that there needs to be a level of compassion for his family because they basically have to wine and dine the media if they want better coverage. He calls it the “invisible contract” and notes that Palace’s relationship with the tabloids is very much front of mind. 

 

Harry Explains The Moment His Family “Turned” on Meghan

While he acknowledges that his family was very welcoming of Meghan at first, he said it all changed after their “south Pacific tour.”

“It was the first time the family got to see how incredible she is at the job, and that brought back memories,” he said referring to how much positive press and love the late Diana once received following the Australian tour.

When Oprah asked if there were hints of jealousy, Harry said “I wish we would all learn for the past” explaining that the “effortless” way she connected with the public triggered some members.

 

Harry Would Never Have Stepped Back If It Wasn’t for Meghan

“No, I wouldn’t have been able to,” Harry explained. “I, myself, was trapped,” he said, adding that he didn’t have a way out. When Oprah pushed back saying this has been his whole life, he acknowledged that he was “trapped but didn’t know he was trapped.” 

Oprah continued pressing asking how a privileged prince born into this world could feel trapped, but he explained that he was “trapped within a system.” He added that Prince Charles and Prince William are both trapped in a sense because of their birthright duties to the crown. 

He added that looks can be deceiving as ultimately, the job is to put on a smile and pretend to be happy no matter what’s going on in your personal life. 

 

What Would Princess Diana Think About Megxit?

“I think she would feel very angry with how this has banned out and very sad, but ultimately, all she’d ever want is for us to be happy,” Harry said.

He said he’s grateful to have Meghan by his side and acknowledged how lonely it must have been for his mother to go through by herself. 

 

What Is Prince Harry’s Relationship With His Family?

Harry said his relationship with Queen Elizabeth is really solid and they’ve talked more this year than they ever have. However, things with his father are not as peachy. He explained that he feels “really let down” and there’s a lot to work through. 

“I will always love him, but there’s a lot of hurt that’s happened,” he said, adding that he would prioritize trying to heal that relationship. “They only know what they know or what they’re told,” he said offering sympathy to those within the Palace walls.

As for his brother, he loves him to bits but he explained they “are on different paths.” At the moment, there’s a space between them, but he believes “time heals all.”

 

What About All Those Lucrative Deals?

Oprah mentioned the Netflix and Spotify deals have made some people think they are money grabbing royals, but Prince Harry explained that was never in the plan and “never the intention.” Prince Harry explained his motivation to make money is to get security and keep his family safe. After leaving the royal family, he noted the only money he had was whatever his mother left him.

 

The bottom line, both Prince Harry and Meghan say that if they had the support, they would still be part of the family, but they also add that they’re proud of how they handled the situation. Harry said they did everything they could to maintain the relationship and protect the royal family in the process. 

“We did what we had to do,” Prince Harry added. 

As Oprah put it – Meghan’s story with the Prince does have a happy ending and it involves freedom and an identity for her family.

It’s a happy ending “greater than I could have imagined,” Meghan added.

The second mini-series in the Netflix anthology by Mike Flanigan, The Haunting of Bly Manor is set against the backdrop of a horror show.

6. Behind Her Eyes (Netflix)

A single mother gets caught up in a dangerous game when she starts an affair with her boss and befriends his wife.

This psychological thriller is vaguely reminiscent of Jordan Peel’s film Us, so get ready for some twists and turns.

7. Dark (Netflix)

You’ll need to watch this one with subtitles unless your fluency in German is up to par, but I guarantee it’s worth it. Dark is a mind-twisting puzzle about a small German town.

Set in LA, the show depicts their flaws and insecurities as they make it through daily life in a city full of exclusive parties and status. It’s also an important watch for the social and racial issues it touches on.

Through mistakes and hiccups, they learn that while being a mom isn’t easy, it’s certainly rewarding. Even if you’re not a mom, you’re sure to get in a few good laughs.

11. Feel Good (Netflix)

Whether or not she’s simply replacing her drug addiction with love, she’ll have to find ways to heal and cope if she has any hopes for her relationship’s longevity.

12. Kim’s Convenience (Netflix)

The lack of Asian representation on TV is horrendous, but Kim’s Convenience is one small step closer to bridging that gap. The show follows a Korean family in Canada who owns a convenience store, and the cultural and generational gap between the immigrant parents and their two children. Although at times, it falls it into common stereotypes, the show is still fun and goofy and you’re sure to fall in love with all the characters.

13. Mindhunter (Netflix)

If you like psychology and have ever been curious about the psyche of the most infamous serial killers, Mindhunter is the show for you. Sort of like Criminal Minds, the ensemble led by Jonathan Groff, researches and studies the minds of Ted Bundy, Charles Manson, David Berkowitz, and many others to really learn what makes a murderer. In its neo-noir filming, the show is really like a mini-movie series.

16. Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist (Hulu)

A musical show featuring the beautiful vocals of Skylar Astin, Alex Newall, and Peter Gallagher, just to name a few, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is about the unusual powers Zoey yields after an MRI. Zoey is suddenly in tune with the inner songs of her coworkers, family, and friends and has to learn how to use her powers to help those in need.

17. Mixed-ish (Hulu)

Following its successful predecessor black-ish, Mixed-ish is all about Rainbow Johnson’s experience growing up in a mixed-race household. Narrated by Tracee Ellis Ross, each episode takes a comedic approach to educate and highlight the specific challenges of being Black and mixed-race in America.

18. Love, Victor (Hulu)

Manifest: 11 Questions We Need Answered

Published

on

Manifest Review Precious Cargo and Destination Unknown Season 3 Episode 7 and Episode 8

When NBC canceled Manifest, audiences rebelled. And rightfully so.

A cancelation meant that after years and time invested in the series, we’ll never find out what happened to Flight 828, which is unacceptable. 

Manifest has one of the most dedicated and loyal fandoms. After every episode, fans took to Reddit and various forums in hopes of figuring out TV’s biggest mystery. 

And that was even more true after the Manifest Season 3 finale as it left audiences hanging with several major cliffhangers!

This tweet below sums up my feelings in the most accurate way  — apologies for the profanity. 

 

The series was mapped out to span six seasons, so naturally, ending it after season 3 leaves us with plenty of unanswered questions.

Showrunner Jeff Rake has been very active and vocal on Twitter as he encourages fans to keep the faith and remain optimistic.

He’s determined to give fans a proper ending — the ending we deserve. 

“We’re trying to find a way to conclude the series. Could take a week, a month, a year. But we’re not giving up. You deserve an end to the story. Keep the conversation alive. If it works out, it’s because of YOU,” he tweeted to Manifesters from all over the world.

Fingers-crossed that NBC greenlights a finale movie, Hulu makes an offer for additional seasons, or Netflix reconsiders their decision and renews the show (after all, it’s still trending in the #1 spot weeks after its debut on the streamer!)

Here are the most pressing questions that need to be resolved! 

1. What Happened to Flight 828

I mean… duh. The disappearance of Flight 828 and its return five years later is the overarching mystery. The plane mysteriously vanished leaving Jamaica to New York and landed five-and-a-half years later after all the passengers were presumed dead. Where did they go? Why didn’t any time pass in their reality? I can’t go on not knowing what happened to the plane or what caused it. If I don’t get an answer, it’s going to haunt me for the rest of my life. 

2018-2019 TV Season Schedule

2. What Are The Callings?

The Callings are warnings or puzzles that need to be solved, but what triggers them? Why doesn’t everyone get the Callings? What is their purpose? Are the passengers supposed to follow the Callings to become better people or find redemption?

One Redditor went to extreme lengths to figure it all out and suggested that the Callings were a result of a shared consciousness. In his Reddit essay (which is a well thought out 46 pages), he suggests: “And the visions, sounds and feelings the characters are having are a metaphysical collateral damage from sharing the same mind? The Callings are scattered impressions and manifestations from memories of the lives of everyone affected, off the responsibility of adapting to chronological order.” 

It sounds like the most reasonable explanation I’ve heard, but it’s so complex that I’d really just rather see it pan out on screen in order to get some closure. 

Manifest Emergency Exit Review

3. Why Is Cal an Adult?

In the last few episodes of season 3, Cal tells Grace that he’ll see her again and disappears within the walls of Eureka. The Stone’s + Saanvi get a joint Calling where they see Cal back on Flight 828. He informs them that he won’t be coming back just yet. We then see him standing over Grace as she’s taking her last breaths, but this time, he’s no longer a child. Cal appears as an adult… but why? Is this Cal from the future? Is this Cal if he never disappeared on Flight 828? 

4. What Does He Have To Do?

Cal tells his dying mother that “he knows what he has to do now,” which is truly vague. What does he have to do? Does he want to go back in time and prevent the flight from ever taking off? Is that what happened to him? Can he somehow undo all the damage that’s been done? 

 

5. Did He Survive His Death Date?

Cal is presumably his normal age now (the age he would’ve been if Flight 828 never disappeared), so if he traveled back in time, it likely means that he beat the Death Date. Does that mean everyone else in the Lifeboat also survived? Or did wherever he go preserve him? Could this be a Cal from a different reality? Or is this a hallucination? So many questions.

 

6. Is Grace Alive?

The general rule on television is that if you don’t see a body, you shouldn’t write that character out. And that’s especially true for a series that centers around a group of resurrected people who were once presumed dead. What if Grace returns with her own Death Date just like the passengers, meth heads, and Zeke did? 

Also, Cal didn’t seem to be too worried about saving his mother, so maybe he knows that in the future she survives? Or that she wasn’t going to die? Or maybe he’s the one that stabbed her because he knew it had to be done! I mean, why else was he there and how did he get in? Or was he a hallucination?

7. What Does Angelina Want With Baby Eden?

For starters, Angelina stabbed (we think), stole, and baptized baby Eden. It’s unclear what she plans to do with her, but the fact that she thinks this child is her guardian angel is concerning. She’s gone to great lengths — and done some unforgivable things, which will likely sink the Life Boat — in order to be with that baby. But why? Why is Angelina drawn to the child? Why is she under the impression that she’s following God’s will?

What is Baby Eden’s purpose? I’m convinced she’s playing some kind of role in saving Earth from the apocalypse as she’s a child of the returned. 

Some have hypothesized that Eden is evil, while others believe there’s an alternate timeline where Angelina is Eden’s mother. I honestly don’t know what to believe, but I’d love a chance to find out. 

8. Where Did Captain Daly Go? And the Plane?

Captain Daly was clued into dark lightning and electrical storms way before Ben and Saanvi, which is why the government tried to get rid of him. He was so desperate to make his point that he kidnapped Fiona and flew them directly into an electrical storm. Ben didn’t believe him at first, but when they disappeared from the radar, it either meant that the rogue plane had been neutralized (though there were no signs of debris, explosion, or anything) or that maybe Daly was onto something. 

While we first expected to see Daly in 2024 (the Death Date), in the final moments of the third season, Daly reappeared in the cockpit of the salvaged 828 in Eureka. His return was likely triggered by another electrical storm. Unfortunately, he was only back for a few seconds to yell “help me” before vanishing with the whole reconstructed plane.

It’s important to note that he was once again in the cockpit and wearing his uniform, which isn’t what he had on when he vanished with Fiona. Was this a different Captain Daly… possibly the one from the original flight? 

Why did he need help? Why did the plane vanish with him? And where did he go again?

 

9. Where Was Fiona?

Most importantly… where was Fiona? Why didn’t she return with him? Did they make it to 2024 to help the passengers beat the Death Date? Is her expertise in neural psychology how they’re all getting these Callings?

When asked about where Fiona and Daly have been for the year and a half, Rake told TV Insider: “Captain Daly has been exactly where Cal was from the end of Episode 312 when he disappears to when he returns right there at the very end of the season finale. What that place is I’m gonna let Cal speak to that when we come back in Season 4. I’m going to let Ben chew on that and use that information to try to navigate where to go forward.”

 

10. Zeke or Jared?

Jared’s in love with Mic — he always has been and he always will be. He’s finally coming to terms with that, and while telling Mic that he thought “Zeke would be dead” was rude, he was simply caught up in the moment.

Zeke is an empath who has developed an intuition that allows him to feel the emotions of others, so he knows with certainty that Mic is conflicted. When he tells her that they have to “talk” in the finale, it seems like he might be taking a step back in order to allow Mic to figure out what her heart truly wants.

Mic has had a hard time letting go of the past and living in the present, and with the Death Date looming large, she’s going to have to get really honest about what she really wants out of the time she has left.

The audience also wants to know her decision. Will she stay married to Zeke? Will she return to Jared? This love triangle needs to be resolved!

11. What’s With The Major’s Daughter?

There has to be more than meets the eye when it comes to Sarah. I don’t believe that her relationship with Jared was innocent. 

As Mic pointed out, he could’ve dated anyone, and yet, Sarah made her move on him almost immediately after he told her his mom was dead. She also seemed way too chill to find out the truth about her mom!

Is she going to come after Saanvi after seeing the tapes in her mother’s box? Did her mother put her up to this? I can’t be the only one who thinks that The Major is still alive and gearing up for a comeback. Maybe she’s the person above Vance that’s pulling all the strings! Or maybe she has a death date of her own!

 

There are definitely more than 11 questions within this post, so the point is, we need answers, and we’re not going to stop looking for them!

11 Best Board Games Inspired by TV Shows That You Need to Play

We may no longer be stuck in quarantine, but one of my favorite pastimes from the pandemic has stayed with me. 

I’ll be the first to say it — adults don’t play enough games!

I forgot how fun games from my childhood like Monopoly or Life were! And they’re even better with a pop culture twist.

Some of your favorite board games have gotten a makeover from your favorite TV shows. 

Since the pandemic, I found myself collecting these TV-inspired board games. 

Here are the ones I suggest you add to your game collection:
