Oprah asked the Duchess of Sussex about her expectations when it comes to privacy, but the clip wasn’t included in the broadcast that aired on CBS on Sunday night. OprahMag.com just debuted the clip online and you can read a recap below.
“I think everyone has a basic right to privacy. Basic. We’re not talking about anything that anybody else wouldn’t expect,” Meghan said.
Meghan then gave a great example of how any ordinary person would deal with privacy.
“If you’re at work and you have a photograph of your child on your desk, and your coworker says, ‘Oh, my gosh, your kid’s so cute. That’s fantastic! Can I see your phone so I can see all the pictures of your child?’ You go, ‘No. This is the picture I’m comfortable sharing with you,’” Meghan said. “And then if they double down and say, ‘No, but you already showed me that one. So you have to show me everything. You know what, I’m just gonna hire someone to sit in front of your house, or hide in the bushes and take pictures into your backyard, because you’ve lost your right to privacy…because you shared one image with me.’”
Meghan said that she’s comfortable sharing certain aspects of her life, just like others are comfortable sharing certain parts of their lives on social media.
“There’s no one who’s on Instagram or social media that would say, ‘Because I shared this one picture, that entitles you to have my entire camera roll. Go ahead and look through it.’ No one would want that. So it’s about boundaries. And it’s about respect,” she said.
Meghan says she’s never asked for complete privacy. She said, “They’ve created a false narrative. I’ve never talked about privacy.”
