Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II will call Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle in the coming days to reconcile. The monarch made this decision after the couple’s scandalous interview with American TV host Oprah Winfrey. The Daily Mail reported this on Thursday, March 11.
“Members of the royal family, especially the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge, are deeply upset by the way the couple attacked them. Now Elizabeth II has decided to take the lead. The queen believes it is time for a more personal approach,” the report said.
Members of the prince’s family were reportedly not shown the two-hour interview in advance.
The Office of the British Queen issued a statement 56 hours after the interview of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to Oprah Winfrey. It said that the statements of the couple relating to manifestations of racism in the royal family will be examined most seriously.
According to the publication, members of the royal family “were stunned by the brutality of the allegations” made against them.
“Palace staff also watched the couple’s interviews with horror, as the couple claimed that Meghan was left completely unsupported when she joined the royal family. However, the palace claims that the duchess was given a number of the queen’s most senior staffers as ‘mentors’ after the couple got engaged,” the article says.
For her part, Elizabeth II warned courtiers against discussing the Prince and Markle’s interviews, much less with the press, threatening serious sanctions for doing so.
“Harry, Meghan and their son Archie will always be fervently loved family members,” Buckingham Palace concluded in a statement.
In a March 7 interview with CBS television, the British prince’s wife revealed that some members of the British royal family had concerns about the skin color of their then-unborn son. According to her, among some of them were “fears and conversations about how dark his (son Archie. – Ed.) skin might be when he’s born.” She wouldn’t name them so as not to do them “serious damage,” and added that Harry’s husband had told her about it.
In addition, Meghan Markle said in an interview that before she and her husband made the decision to give up their royal duties, she had thoughts of suicide. According to her, it was a very clear, real and frighteningly constant idea.
The interview of the spouses of the American TV host Oprah Winfrey caused enormous interest. In the U.S. it was watched by more than 17 million people, in the UK – more than 11 million.
