Following Oprah’s jaw-dropping interview with Megan Markle and Prince Harry, the royal family has released a brief statement.
“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,” the response said.
The statement was released a mere day after Oprah’s two hour CBS interview, in which the royal couple revealed their experience with tabloid news media, mental health, and of course, the royal family.
Among the most widely deliberated claims was that there had been conversations in the royal family relating to what the race of the child was going to be, and, according to Markle, “what that would mean.” The revelation has elevated already apparent controversy of the royal family across the globe.
