In the interview, Meghan told Oprah she contemplated suicide and struggled to get help during her time as a working royal.
After it aired, Hugh shared a candid video on Instagram. He urged his followers to watch the sit-down chat, which he believed was “such an incredible example to never worry alone” after seeing it with his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness.
“I recommend Oprah’s interview with Meghan and Harry, which Deb and I and millions of people worldwide watched last night with astonishment,” he said.
“Because there we were witnessing an incredibly high profile woman and her husband speak so openly, courageously, honestly, with such dignity about really the hardest time in their life and their cry for help.”
The 52-year-old Australian actor explained he sits on the board of Gotcha4Life, which he described as “an organization in Australia that is dealing with this issue of suicide as well as mental fitness.”
He said watching Meghan, and Harry’s interview reinforced the importance of seeking help and to “never worry alone.”
“Last night, I just thought, everyone needs to see this because it is such an incredible example never to worry alone. Seek help, and if you’re not getting help where you’re looking for it, keep looking,” he said.
“Go somewhere else because there is always help. So never worry alone, and I just want to say thank you, Meghan, thank you, Harry, for your courage.” During the interview called ‘Oprah With Meghan and Harry’, which aired on US network CBS and Channel 10 in Australia, Meghan told Oprah she contemplated suicide during her time as a working royal.
