The Queen has expressed her “concern” over race allegations made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as well as her sadness on learning exactly how challenging the couple had found life as working royals.
Buckingham Palace finally broke its silence on Tuesday evening over Harry and Meghan’s explosive claims, made in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, saying the issues raised would be taken “seriously” and dealt with “privately” by the royal family.
A short statement issued on behalf of the Queen read: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.
“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.
We ask. Were the palace under pressure to respond?
