Buckingham Palace have finally addressed the claims made in the Oprah Interview.
Up until now, Buckingham Palace has not responded to the claims made in Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah.
Meghan and Harry revealed a great deal of information in their interview with Oprah on Sunday. Meghan said she had reached the point where she did not want to be alive anymore.
She said she “did not know who to turn to. One of the people I reached out to, who has been a friend and a confidante, was one of Diana’s best friends. Who else could understand what it is actually like on the inside,”.
Meghan recalled when she and Harry were due at an event at the Royal Albert Hall. He told her she did not have to go with him. “He said don’t go, and I said I can’t be left alone,” she said.
She then revealed that when the lights went down at the event she sat in the dark and cried. Harry held her hand to get her through it.
During the interview, it was also said that there were ‘concerns’ within the Royal Family about how ‘dark’ her first child’s skin would be. Meghan said:
‘All around this same time, we have in tandem the conversation of he won’t be given security, he’s not going to be given a title and also concerns and conversations as how dark his skin might be when he’s born,’ Meghan said.
‘That was relayed to me from Harry from conversations that family had with him.’
Buckingham Palace’s Response
Now, the Palace has revealed that they are ‘saddened’ by the difficulties Meghan and Harry faced.
They issued a statement on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen which 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.”
