Amanda Gorman on Meghan Markle: Amanda Gorman, the Black American poet who performed at President Joe Biden’s inauguration spoke out about how the British royals mistreated Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle.

Gorman tweeted that Meghan Markle was their “greatest opportunity for change, regeneration, and reconciliation” and that they missed out on it.

During Markle and Prince Harry’s two-hour interview with Oprah Winfrey on CBS, the Duke and Duchess revealed that members of the royal family had isolated Markle, worried about their child’s skin colour, and denied her help when she was having mental health issues and dealing with suicidal thoughts. Markle told Winfrey that “I just didn’t want to be alive anymore”.

Markle spoke about being forced to turn over her keys, passport, and driver’s license. As a result, when her mental health started deteriorating she was unable to go anywhere for treatment. “I couldn’t, you know, call an Uber to the palace,” Meghan said.

When Gorman had recited her poem “The Hill We Climb”, she had depicted an image of American racism while also depicting a hopeful vision of the country’s future. She had also expressed outrage when the House of Windor allegedly denied Markle and Harry’s son Archie the title of prince as some family members worried his skin would be too dark.

After the interview aired, Gorman responded with a series of tweets.
