The Queen Breaks Her Silence on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Interview With Oprah Winfrey

“The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.”

Earlier this week, Oprah Winfrey spoke with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who both shared shocking untold stories that occurred behind Buckingham Palace‘s walls during their time as working members of the Royal Family. The highly anticipated interview drew millions of viewers from around the globe, making it one of the most talked-about events of the year so far.

Now, Queen Elizabeth II has broken her silence and has issued an official statement. “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan,” the note read. “The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While 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.”

For those who haven’t watched the interview, the Duchess of Sussex made a few alarming claims, including how “the Firm” had “concerns and conversations about how dark [son Archie's] skin was going to be when he was born.” In addition, due to the toxicity of the British tabloids, Markle had suicidal thoughts and revealed that she “didn’t want to be alive anymore.”

According to CNN, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not plan to comment on the Queen’s statement.
