Amidst claims and accusations made by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Monarch – Queen Elizabeth II – has said that the issues will be dealt privately by the Royal family
Replying to the heat raised by the allegations of racism made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – in an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, a statement has been issued by the Buckingham Palace. As the pressure mounted on the Royals, a statement issued on behalf of the Monarch read: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan. The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.” The statement continued, “Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members.” The statement was issued on Tuesday following the interview that was aired on Monday morning that was watched by more than 30 million viewers globally.
Harry and Meghan’s allegations of racial issue with regards to their son Archie’s skin colour and those regarding her mental health including her claims of suicidal thoughts has forced the Palace to contemplate an investigation into the couple’s revelations.
While the name of the family member who made the biracial remarks about Archie’s skin colour were not divulged, Harry is said to have told Oprah that it was not the Queen nor her husband Prince Philip.
The statement issued highlighted the Queen’s affection for the couple and her wish to take the conversation ahead with the couple in private.
