Meghan Markle didn't commit suicide because she didn't want husband Prince Harry to lose another woman he loved.
The Duke of Sussex revealed the only thing stopping his wife, who was pregnant at the time, from killing herself during their time as royals was because it would've been "unfair" on Harry and their unborn child, Archie.
In new bombshell docuseries The Me You Can't See, produced by Oprah Winfrey, Harry opens up about Meghan's suicidal thoughts, admitting the loss of his mum Princess Diana played a key role in his wife's decision not to kill herself.
"The thing that stopped her from seeing it through was how unfair it would be on me after everything that had happened to my mum and to now be put in a position of losing another woman in my life, with a baby inside of her, our baby," he said.
"The scariest thing for her was her clarity of thought. She hadn’t 'lost it.' She wasn’t crazy. She wasn’t self-medicating, be it through pills or through alcohol. She was absolutely sober. She was completely sane. Yet in the quiet of night, these thoughts woke her up."
The duke also revealed how Meghan said she was considering suicide before a charity event in London.
"I'm somewhat ashamed of the way that I dealt with it," he said.

"And of course, because of the system that we were in and the responsibilities and the duties that we had, we had a quick cuddle, and then we had to get changed and had to jump in a convoy with a police escort and drive to the Royal Albert Hall for a charity event and then step out into a wall of cameras and pretend as though everything’s OK.
"There wasn’t an option to say, ‘You know what? Tonight we’re not going to go. Because just imagine the stories that come from that."
"While my wife and I were in those chairs, gripping each other’s hand, the moment the lights go down, Meghan starts crying," Harry said.
"I’m feeling sorry for her, but I’m also really angry with myself that we’re stuck in this situation.
"I was ashamed that it got this bad. I was ashamed to go to my family. Because to be honest with you, like a lot of other people my age could probably relate to, I know that I’m not gonna get from my family what I need."
Meghan revealed she felt suicidal as a senior royal during the couple's controversial tell-all interview with Oprah in March.
She also accused the Royal Family of "perpetuating falsehoods" about her and Harry, and claimed one senior member admitted to being "concerned" about the potential colour of – then unborn – son Archie's skin.
Princess Diana, meanwhile, was tragically killed in a car crash in Paris, France, in August 1997.
