What Meghan told Oprah Winfrey about not being able to leave the palace
One of the things Prince Harry’s wife mentioned during the primetime special with Oprah is that “he was allowed to do very little.” She claimed she couldn’t even leave the palace to meet her friends because of how “saturated” she was in the media.
According to Meghan people at the firm would say to her: “‘Well, you can’t do that because it’s going to look like this. You can’t.’ So, even, ‘Can I go and have lunch with my friends?’ ‘No, no, no, you are oversaturated, you are everywhere, it would be best for you not to go out for lunch with your friends.’ I go, ‘Okay, I haven’t left the house in months.’”
She went on to say that “there was one day that one of the family members, she came, and she said, ‘Why don’t you lie down for a while, because you are everywhere now.’ And I said, ‘I’ve left the house twice in four months. I’m everywhere, but I’m nowhere.’ And from that point of view, I continued to say to people, ‘I know there’s an obsession about how things look, but has anyone talked about how it feels? Because right now, I’m lonely. Couldn’t feel it.’”

The Duchess was spotted outside on several occasions, although she claimed to be a ‘lone prisoner’
Despite what the Duchess told Oprah, biographer Andrew Morton, who wrote the book Meghan: A Hollywood Princessrevealed that Meghan hinted that she was kept inside the palace as if a royal prisoner was a liar.
“He claimed that in a four-month period, he had left the house only twice, again indicating that he was a lone prisoner who had been hid in gray by men. Yet he was seen on several occasions: Notting Hill dinner and lunch appointments, beauty treatments in Kensington, and various shopping trips,” Morton wrote in updated chapters of his book (per newsweek) “Though they were pulled over by the paparazzi, British newspapers refused to buy photos of these trips.”
Morton said the Duchess of Sussex: “felt silenced and trapped by the system; her passport, driver’s license and keys were taken away from her as if she were entering an open prison. However, it left her private and private.” That didn’t stop her from delivering several speeches on women’s empowerment, equality and other issues while traveling around the world on commercial planes.
Morton also wrote the explosive best-selling biography of Princess Diana, Diana: Her True Story, after receiving audio recordings from the princess detailing her life behind the palace walls.
