Buckingham Palace Statement: On behalf of the Queen, the Buckingham Palace issued a statement addressing the claims made by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in their interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Meghan Markle And Prince Harry’s highly explosive interview to Oprah Winfrey has undoubtedly shook the entire Buckingham Palace to the core. In the tell-all chat with the legendary host, Meghan made shocking revelations about the royal institution, ranging from allegations of racist remarks against her son Archie to getting ignored when asked for help to deal with suicidal thoughts. This interview has brought the integrity of the royal family into question.
Another major development in the on-going sensational story is the statement issued by the Buckingham Palace on Tuesday. In the official statement, The Queen said that she was saddened by what her grandson and his family had to go through all this while and that this matter would be addressed by the family in private.
“The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan,” the statement issued on behalf of Queen Elizabeth read.
“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,” it further added.
Media claimed Royals wanted these conversations to happen internationally and the family be given the opportunity to discuss the problems raised privately.
The revealing interview has seemingly put the royal family into its biggest crisis since the explosive interview of Harry’s mother Princess Diana in 1995. In that interview, Diana talked about her failed marriage due to the presence of the third person, pointing towards Duchess Camilla, who is now the wife of Prince Charles.
Reaction to the interview
This entire episode has triggered a plethora of mixed reaction among the celebrities and people. There are many celebrities, artists, political personalities and common people who support Meghan in this feud. Meanwhile, there is a section of people, including Meghan’s estranged father Thomas Markle, who have raised concern over the behaviour exhibited by the Duchess of Sussex, calling it ‘inappropriate and blown out of proportion’.
