The fallout from the explosive Harry and Meghan interview with Oprah continues.

Now, the leader of the Black choir who sang at their wedding has spoken out.

Karen Gibson is the founder of The Kingdom Choir. They are a gospel singing group from London who performed at Harry and Meghan’s wedding back in May 2018.

In an interview with TMZ Gibson said it was Prince Charles who invited them to perform at the nuptials.

The Kingdom Choir sang Ben E. King’s soul classic Stand By Me, to widespread acclaim and rave reviews worldwide.

Gibson insists that Prince Charles had been nothing but gracious to them, and even made sure to congratulate them on their success following the wedding.


During the interview with Oprah, Meghan claimed that someone in the royal family had questioned how “dark” her son Archie’s skin would be.

Oprah later followed up and said while Harry wouldn’t elaborate on who it was, he did say it wasn’t the Queen or Prince Philip.

The rumour mill has been whirling since about who it could be in the family.

Now choir leader Gibson says she finds it hard to believe that Prince Charles would be the culprit.

She also insists that Charles came off as very sincere in his invitation.

Royal Response

So far the only response from Buckingham Palace has come from a statement plus a comment from Prince William.

The Buckingham Palace on behalf of the Queen expressed the family’s sadness at learning the ‘full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan’.

The statement said the issues of race, were very ‘concerning’.

Meanwhile, earlier this week Prince William became the first royal to address the interview publicly.

He answered questions from reporters as he and his wife Kate attended a school. They were raising awareness of a new mental health scheme they are rolling out to secondary schools.

Prince William told reporters the family are “very much not racist.”

Queen’s Support

Now, royal sources are saying Her Majesty The Queen is allegedly backing Prince William after his comments he made while visiting the school.

Insiders claim the Queen has reached out to William in support, to say she approves of his comments made to the press.

He told reporters that he has not yet seen Harry since the interview, but he will speak to him.

Palace insiders told the Daily Mail that Queen believes William did “very well given the emotion and enormity of it all”.

More than 11 million people watched the Oprah interview in the UK, and more than 17 million in the US.

Since it aired, the fall-out has been huge. Piers Morgan has quit Good Morning Britain after his criticism of Meghan, when he claimed she was lying about feeling suicidal.

Many of her former colleagues have been speaking out to back her up, too.

At one point, #AbolishTheMonarchy was trending on Twitter, with many people calling the institution “archaic”.

However, plenty of criticism was thrown at the couple for going ahead with the interview while Prince Philip has been in hospital.

Do you agree with their support?
