Meghan Markle found solace in the text message she received from Beyoncé after her and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021.

Following their decision to leave their posts as senior members of the royal family, Markle and Prince Harry shared their story in the 85-minute sitdown interview. Although they faced criticism following their appearance, the Duchess of Sussex revealed she received heartfelt support from their supporters and other personalities, including Beyoncé.

Netflix dropped the second part of its docuseries "Harry & Meghan" on Thursday and the series immediately became its biggest documentary debut, racking 81.44 million viewing hours within its first four days of release.

In the new volume, Markle revealed that the 41-year-old "Single Ladies" hitmaker sent her a text message a day after their interview with Winfrey. Prince Harry told her to call the singer, but she declined.

"[Bey] said she wants me to feel safe and protected," Markle said. "She admires and respects my bravery and vulnerability and thinks I was selected to break generational curses that need to be healed."

Beyoncé's kind message resonated with what she posted on her website to show support for the Duchess of Sussex. She expressed her gratitude for Markle's courage and leadership, saying that she inspired people with her words.

Along with the heartfelt message was a photo of her and Meghan standing with their husbands during the London premiere of "The Lion King" in 2019.

Meghan and Prince Harry's documentary released its first three episodes on Dec. 8 and the remaining three installments this week. It appeared on Netflix's Top 10 TV list in 85 countries.

During the Sussexes' interview with Oprah on CBS, the couple spoke up about several issues surrounding their names. The duchess also shocked everyone when she revealed that there were alleged concerns from the royal family about her child's skin color and hat she experienced suicidal thoughts.

Their alleged struggles with racism covered a huge part of the major reasons why they left their roles as senior members of the royal family. Prince William, on the other hand, dismissed the claims and said that the royal family "is not a racist family."

"When I watched it, I thought, 'There's so much more she could have said,'" Tyler Perry said of the interview. "But because she's such a classy, elegant woman, she didn't."
