Queen Elizabeth has addressed the issue of racism raised by Duke and Duchess of Sussexes, Prince Harry and wife, Meghan Mackle in their interview with Oprah Winfrey interview.
The Buckingham Palace released the statement on behalf of the Queen where it revealed that the entire Royal family is concerned about what the couple has had to pass through in the past few years
The statement reads:
“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. Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.
“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”
Prior to that, there had been a wall of silence from the royal family following the interview, which was aired Sunday on CBS and by British broadcaster ITV on Monday night, drawing in millions of viewers on both sides of the Atlantic.
The palace is said to have held “crisis talks,” according to British media reports, including the BBC, with senior royals reported to have had urgent discussions over how to limit the fallout from the interview, which saw Harry and Meghan allege that a member of the royal family had questioned what skin tone their then-unborn child might have.
