‘Are my babies safe?’ Meghan tearfully exclaims as she breaks down over death threats

Meghan had tears in her eyes recalling the death threats she has received since starting her relationship with Prince Harry.

She admitted she would stay up late at night worrying whether her family was safe following the torrent of online abuse.

“I’m a mum,” she said. “It’s my real life. And you are making people want to kill me.

“It’s not just a tabloid, it’s not just a story. You are making me scared.”

“To be up and down in the middle of the night, looking down my hallway, like, ‘Are we safe? Are the doors locked? Is the security on?’

“That’s real. ‘Are my babies safe?’ And you’ve created it for what?”

The Duchess of Sussex launched an attack on the British press in the documentary, which concluded this week.

In her interviews with Harry, she blamed the press for stirring up online trolls with defamatory stories which encouraged them to send her threatening messages.

Not only did the threats make her feel unsafe, but she also began to worry about the safety of Harry and their children Archie and Lilibet.

American tech entrepreneur Christopher Bouzy also highlighted how many of the hateful comments were directed towards the fact Meghan is mixed race.

Meghan explained: “What people need to understand is (that) when you plant a seed that is so hateful, what it can grow into…

“Just a couple of days ago I was going through the manual for the security team at home.”

“On one of the pages that I happened to flip to, it was about online monitoring. It was like, ‘If you see a tweet like this report it to head of security immediately.’

“It just said, ‘Meghan just needs to die. Someone needs to kill her. Maybe it should be me.’

“And you’re just like, ‘Okay, that’s what’s actually out in the world’. Because of people creating hate.”

Meghan clearly had tears in her eyes as she brought up her fear and claimed the press was directly responsible for creating the online hatred.

“You’ve created it for what?” she asked. “Because you’re bored, or because it sells your papers?

“It makes you feel better about your own life? It’s real what you’re doing. And that’s the piece I don’t think people fully understand.”

The documentary then cuts to home video footage of Meghan reading and playing with her son Archie.

Netflix’s bombshell documentary has already become one of their biggest hits of the year, and millions more viewers are expected to tune in to the second part this week.
