Oprah then asked if Thomas’ actions felt like a betrayal.
“If we’re going to use the word betrayal,” Meghan said, “it’s because when I asked him…When we were told by the comms team this is a story that’s going to be coming out—which, by the way, the tabloids had apparently known for a month or so and decided to hold until the Sunday before our wedding because they wanted to create drama, which is a really key point in all of this: They don’t report the news, they create the news—we called my dad and we asked him, and he said, ‘No, absolutely not.'”
While Thomas denied working with the paparazzi—even confessing to The Mail on Sunday that he lied to the couple on a call—Meghan said she still offered him help.
“And I said, ‘You know, the Institution has never intervened for anything for us. But they can try to go in and try to kill this story. But if they do this once, we’re not going to be able to use that same leverage to protect our own kids one day,'” Meghan, who is mom to 22-month-old son Archie Harrison and expecting a baby girl, recalled. “So when I said, ‘We won’t be able to protect our own kids one day,’ and I said, ‘So, I just need you to tell me. And if you tell me the truth, we can help,’ and he wasn’t able to do that and that for me has really resonated, especially now as a mother.”
