• Prince Harry revealed Meghan Markle contemplated killing herself during her first pregnancy
  • Twitter users praised the couple for how they've supported each other amid their respective mental health struggles
  • Other online users were not happy and appeared skeptical of Prince Harry's revelations

Twitter users rallied behind Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle following his revelations in his recently released docuseries.

In "The Me You Can't See," which he co-produced with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry said Markle told him she wanted to take her own life while she was pregnant with their first child but didn't act on the suicidal ideations she had because she was afraid of hurting him.

"The thing that stopped her from seeing it through was how unfair it would be on me after everything that had happened to my mum and to now be put in a position of losing another woman in my life, with a baby inside of her, our baby," Prince Harry said.

Fans sympathized with the Sussexes and praised their strong relationship and how they have supported each other amid their respective mental health struggles.

"There is Meghan’s love & sense of protection for Harry, thank god she pulled back," one Twitter user wrote.

"Following Meghan and Prince Harry is the closest I've ever come to understanding love for a sports team. I root for them/take umbrage on their behalf/ hate read all Prince Charles and Prince William responses. I try to think of wise PR moves. I'm ridiculously invested," a second user added.

"My only wish is to anyone who has or is still suffering with mental heath issues is to please listen to Harry & Meghan. They are trying to do, in its simplicity, is to try to help people and to try and help in any way they can with their platform..Love," another wrote.

However, others were not happy about some of Prince Harry's statements.

"When Harry said Meghan’s love for him stopped her from killing herself, I felt angry. I’ve lost my best friend to suicide. I’ve been hospitalized with multiple attempts. Suicidiality needs professional treatment. Love is not enough and implying it is is DANGEROUS and CRUEL," one person tweeted.

Another online user commented on Buzzfeed News' story on Prince Harry's docuseries, saying, "Regarding Meghan suicide thoughts, I empathise, but c'mon girl, you wanted to live for your husband but not for your child? That just doesn't sound right. And how can she be crying in the middle of that concert without ruining her make up, or other people noticing it? there's a lot of stuff that just doesn't add up."

"I do wish he stopped talking about his mum, I was sympathetic but now it's starting to feel like a card. Something about his story just doesn't seem right, it doesn't feel genuine to me, it feels very forced and very self serving," the online user continued.

In his docuseries, Prince Harry said his wife told him that she was contemplating killing herself before they were set to make an appearance at a charity event at the Royal Albert Hall in London. According to the duke, Markle was 6 months pregnant with their son Archie as she shared with him "the practicalities of how she was going to end her life."

"I'm somewhat ashamed of the way that I dealt with it," he explained. "And of course, because of the system that we were in and the responsibilities and the duties that we had, we had a quick cuddle, and then we had to get changed and had to jump in a convoy with a police escort and drive to the Royal Albert Hall for a charity event and then step out into a wall of cameras and pretend as though everything’s OK."

"There wasn’t an option to say, 'You know what? Tonight we’re not going to go.' Because just imagine the stories that come from that," he continued.

"The Me You Can't See" is now streaming on Apple TV+.
