A Quote About Prince Charles from Meghan Markle's New 'The Cut' Interview Was Misinterpreted

Meghan Markle's extremely candid interview with The Cut has generated a lot of headlines—including about Prince Harry's relationship with his father, Prince Charles. But it looks like one particular quote has been misinterpreted to mean that Harry somehow "lost" his relationship with Charles.

The quote is actually about Meghan's estranged relationship with her own dad Thomas Markle, and reads as follows:

"When I ask about it, Meghan doesn’t stay in her sadness for long; instead, she uses it to discuss how toxic tabloid culture has torn two families apart. 'Harry said to me, ‘I lost my dad in this process.’ It doesn’t have to be the same for them as it was for me, but that’s his decision.'"

Royal reporter and Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie clarified on the meaning behind the quote, explaining that Harry was referring to Meghan losing her dad in this process, and Meghan was saying she didn't want him to as well.

"There seems to be confusion in some headlines about this quote in The Cut interview," Omid tweeted. "I understand that Prince Harry is actually referring to Meghan's loss of her own father, and Meghan is saying she doesn't want Harry to lose his."

Got it! FYI that elsewhere in the interview Meghan spoke candidly about her upcoming docuseries with Netflix, saying “The piece of my life I haven’t been able to share, that people haven’t been able to see, is our love story,” and that she hopes "love wins" is "the sentiment that people feel when they see any of the content or the projects that we are working on.”

TBD on when Netflix drops the doc, but there are reports that the streaming giant wants to release it after The Crown this year, with a source telling Page Six that “Netflix wants to make sure they get in there and don’t get scooped” by Harry’s upcoming memoir.
