Prince Harry is praising wife Meghan Markle.

The Duke of Sussex has spoken about the impact the former Suits actress had on his life, which changed drastically in the years following their 2018 marriage, with the couple stirring controversy by exiting their senior royal roles in 2020 and leaving his native United Kingdom to move to her home country of the United States.

“People have said that my wife saved me,” Harry told Dr. Gabor Maté, a trauma, addiction, stress and childhood development expert, during a livestream March 4, according to multiple outlets. “I was stuck in this world, and she was from a different world and helped draw me out of that. But none of the elements of my life now would have been possible without me seeing it for myself.”

Harry continued, “My partner is an exceptional human being and I am eternally grateful for the wisdom and the space that she’s been able to give to me.”
