Queen finally releases statement on Prince Harry, Meghan Markle interview

34

Queen Elizabeth II said in a statement Tuesday that “the whole family is saddened” over the allegations Prince Harry and Meghan Markle leveled in their TV sit-down and that the “issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning” — although “recollections may vary.”

The queen — addressing the pair’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired Sunday — said, “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan,” according to a tweet by a BBC reporter.

“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,” the queen added.

Harry and Meghan told Winfrey that someone in the royal family expressed “concerns” to the prince about “how dark” their son Archie’s skin would be. Markle is biracial.

  1. Very diplomatic response. I admire how the queen handles situations like this. Many people can learn from her.

    • I agree with you when you said, “Many people can learn from her.” That is true, including you!

  2. This is who your leaders swear loyalty to … “her heirs and successors” right?

    So disgusted is her own grandchild that he rather leave and forego all the highest titles just for some peace of mind.

      • Commit suicide my foot. That woman is a liar. She could have left any time she wanted to. She thought that she could go to England and be queen. She saw that she was not cut out for the title so she made trouble. Good riddance to her. Americans do not respect other countries laws and rules. Harry is a Harriett. She wants to be like Princess Di. NEVER!

        • You sound angry. What is wrong with marrying someone who you think is a good catch? She knew she would never be queen as her husband is way down the line of succession.

        • .sandra SHUT THE HELL UP STUPID WITCH . WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU WRITING DUMB WOMEN LIKE YOU MAKE ALOT OF BLACK MEN PREFER WHITE WOMEN . TALK TOO DAMN MUCH AND MAKE 0 SENSE

          • Ssandra doesn’t sound terribly bright and neither do you shups

          • All you black men always liked Light skinned women from way back. You are the dumbo. My beef is that she’s an American. Any other country Harry chose a woman from would have been ok with me whether she be black, yellow, pink or white.

        • This is such an ignorant comment – it would have been better if you remained silent than showcasing your ignorance.

  3. Hope this spark a move amongst the Commonwealth to ditch the queen as the head of state.

    • Great idea buddy. Be wary that you’d no longer benefit from the commonwealth though…. Don’t see it happening

  4. “This above all: to thine ownself be true,: And it must follow, as the night the day,: Thou canst not then be false to any man.” William Shakespeare.
    To achieve this is extremely difficult within a system in which money and power are so concretized to the ultimate benefit of an hierarchical monarchy.

  5. What I don’t understand. If they so love their own black people, why do they marry a white person? Both her husband’s were white. She would never be with a black man. She 99%
    White. So who is a racist?

    • She would marry a black man if he is rich or powerful. You know how black men like them butter skin.

      • No, she would not. Her mother also married a white man. Their own race is too black for them. They are fakers. Pretending that they are so into black lives matter.

    • You don’t know this woman personally. She has no idea you even exist.

      Yet, you are privy to all her most innermost thoughts and motivations.

        • Where are the men to give me some? No real men around anymore. And btw, this is not a porn comment article. Your mind is where it is always at – in the sewer.

    • I’m noticing old white women (especially English white women) hate hate hate Meghan Markle irrationally and passionately

      Also not quite sure how having a black mom and a white dad makes you 99% white.

  6. Black people should not care about the Queen and the so-called royals. They are all beneficiaries of slavery. They are all an atrocious set. I hope to see that empire crumble.

      • .ssndra, this is an argument that is constantly repeated by non black people.
        Do you know the difference between racism and discrimination? Black people may discriminate against other blacks.
        You should educate yourself on the difference.
