Shortly after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s scandalous Oprah interview went on air on 7 March, Buckingham Palace issued a statement saying that the royals were “saddened” by “concerning” claims made by the Sussexes during the talk. The issues would be addressed by the family “privately,” the statement added.
Prince Harry is apparently anticipating an apology from his family for how his wife Meghan was treated while living in the palace, an insider allegedly told to the US Weekly magazine.
In the controversial “tell-all” interview to Oprah Winfrey, the Duchess of Sussex claimed that she suffered from suicidal thoughts while pregnant with Archie but was denied help when she approached palace aides. There were also “concerns” about the skin colour of her soon-to-be-born son, Markle claimed, while the pair learned that their first child would be deprived of his “prince” status and security.
But according to royal tradition, Archie had no birthright to be a prince until his grandfather, Prince Charles, accedes to the throne. This rule does not apply to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s kids because they are in direct line to the throne.
