The Queen reacts to Meghan and Harry interview, says issues raised including race “concerning”

The Royal Family has officially ended its silence to address allegations of racism and unfair treatment levelled by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during their “tell-all” interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday night. In a statement to media released Monday, the Royal Family said they were “saddened” by the allegations made in the interview, and found the claims about racism “concerning.”

During the interview, the couple accused the Royal Family of failing to protect them from racist attacks in the British media and alleged someone within the family had asked about their child Archie’s potential skin colour before his birth. The couple also described difficulties with leaving their royal duties behind in the interview.

A statement released by Buckingham Palace on behalf of The Queen said the issues raised, “particularly that of race,” are concerning, but added that “while some recollection may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.” Redmond Shannon has more details.
