Buckingham Palace has finally broken its silence on the damning revelations made by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in their two-hour long interview with Oprah Winfrey.

And according to a statement from the palace on behalf of the Queen, the Royal Family is “saddened” to learn of the challenges the couple faced.

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

Arguably the most explosive revelation made in the interview was that someone in the Royal Family had concerns about “how dark” Meghan and Harry’s son’s complexion would be.

The statement addressed this claim directly and called it “concerning.

“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.”
