“There was such an obsession about anything in my world, including tracking down my parents,” Meghan told Winfrey. “And I did everything I could to protect both of them in that media frenzy. But for over a year, the UK tabloids were trying to find my dad, offering people so much money to try to find his address.”
Once they did, they descended on him gleefully, she said.
“I remember being told there was a huge headline like, ‘We found him’ or ‘We’ve got him.’ You’re talking about someone’s father. And from that point, the tabloids, they moved into the apartment next door and across from him. [They] descended on this small town … giving him gifts. The whole thing brings us to where we are today.”
