In an in-depth interview with The Cut (opens in new tab), the Duchess of Sussex revealed that there is a heartbreaking reason behind her decision to only share a few images of her children over the years.
In the interview, Meghan Markle condemned the Royal Rota rules that William and Kate have to ‘play’ with Cambridge children. The Duchess said, "There’s literally a structure by which if you want to release photos of your child, as a member of the family, you first have to give them to the Royal Rota [the U.K. media pool]."
The Duchess of Sussex added that she felt uncomfortable sharing images with the same tabloids that were writing negative articles about her and using negative slurs to describe the Duchess such as 'the N-word'.
"Why would I give the very people that are calling my children the N-word a photo of my child before I can share it with the people that love my child? You tell me how that makes sense and then I’ll play that game," said Meghan.

In the interview with The Cut, Meghan said that in California she can do school pickup and drop-off without it being a royal photo call with 'a press pen of 40 people snapping pictures'. The Duchess said, "Sorry, I have a problem with that. That doesn’t make me obsessed with privacy. That makes me a strong and good parent protecting my child."
Later in the interview, Meghan Markle compared her relationship with her father to Prince Harry and Prince Charles as she explained her hopes for her husband and the Prince of Wales to reconcile.
The Duchess of Sussex spoke about her wishes that Prince Harry would have a better relationship with his father than she does with hers. However, later in the interview, Meghan revealed her struggles with forgiving her Royal in-laws as she revealed ' it takes a lot of effort to forgive'.
