As OK! previously reported, the duchess claimed she “went to the institution, and I said I needed to go somewhere to get help.” However, the Suits alum claimed she was told she couldn’t seek assistance because “it wouldn’t be good for the institution.”

King’s statements echoed Meghan’s other pal, Janina Gavankar, who confirmed that Meghan “turned to all of us. She turned to her husband,” when she wasn’t given the help she needed from within the royal family.

Gavankar further claimed that Meghan’s struggles were well-known within royal circles.

“I don’t know who knew. (But) I know that the family and the staff knew,” The Morning Show actress explained, adding that she “watched as a wall was built around [Meghan],” as her mental health continued to crumble. “[Meghan] was very isolated — and even though that wasn’t her choice she was being completely slaughtered for it.”

Since the couple came forward with their shocking revelations earlier this month, Buckingham Palace released a statement, saying: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.”

“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning,” the statement continued. “Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously by the family privately.”
