During a primetime special, the former “Suits” actress and Prince Harry spoke with Oprah Winfrey on a wide range of topics, including accusations of racism Markle made over alleged “concerns and conversations” about “how dark” their first born’s “skin might be” from other members of the royal family while she was pregnant. The duchess is half-black.
A few days later, Buckingham Palace released a statement on Queen Elizabeth II’s behalf and shared 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,” the statement added. “While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.”
