After a very frank conversation between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with Oprah Winfrey, several months have passed. But the passions around her boil up to this day. Only the reaction of the royal family did not suit Harry and Megan, who accused Elizabeth II of callousness.
On March 7, another episode of the Oprah Winfrey show was released, in which she interviewed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The effect that the frankness of the spouses had produced was compared by journalists to an exploding bomb. Some even suggested that the royal couple used the shocking details for PR, writes the Huff Post.
Whether it is or not, only Megan and Harry know. But royal biographers Caroline Durand and Omid Scobie have updated the biography of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Finding Freedom. It included reflections of the Dukes of Sussex regarding the scandalous interview with Oprah Winfrey.
From the updated biography, it follows that the spouses do not repent of their shocking frankness. Meghan Markle has no regrets about sharing her thoughts of suicide and racism that is rampant at the palace.
The only thing that upsets them is the queen’s soullessness. Elizabeth II did not react in any way to the revelations of her grandson and his wife, the spouses insist. In their opinion, this lack of reaction indicates the reluctance of the royal family to take responsibility for their misdeeds.
Although Meghan and Markle both declared the Queen’s indifference, after the release of The Oprah Show, Buckingham Palace issued a statement on behalf of Queen Elizabeth, stating that the family was “saddened” to learn of Meghan and Harry’s suffering.
“The issues raised, especially racial ones, are troubling. While some memories may differ, they are taken very seriously and the family will discuss them privately,” the press release said.
