Meghan Markle Fan Explains Why He Apologized to Prince Harry for 'Cuddling' His Wife (Exclusive)

“It was probably to clear everything up,” he said. “If that was my wife and I had this random child [hug her] … I don't think he's threatened by it [but] I thought it was polite to do so. It was out of my own kindness. If Meghan Markle wasn't as big as she is, I would still say sorry for that. I just thought it was genuinely polite to do so. It didn't feel as if I was forced into it."

Meanwhile, on International Women's Day, photographer Misan Harriman shared a never-before-seen picture from his photo shoot with Megan and Harry for her second pregnancy. Megan and Harry revealed they're expecting a baby girl during their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Luminary Bakery in London also shared that the couple sent tasty treats to the women of Hubb Community Kitchen alongside a special note in honor of the holiday.

In Meghan and Harry's much-talked-about sit-down with Oprah, the expectant mother said that she felt silenced by the royal family and wasn't allowed to use her voice.

"That's the sad irony of the last four years. I've advocated for so long for women to use their voice, and then, I was silent," she said on Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special.

Oprah then asked, "Were you silent, or were you silenced?" to which Meghan replied, "The latter."

"It was only once we were married and everything started to really worsen that I came to understand that not only was I not being protected, but that they were willing to lie to protect other members of the family," Meghan expressed. "But they weren't willing to tell the truth to protect me and my husband."
