Prince Harry Meghan Markle Oprah interview

Buckingham Palace have released a statement on behalf of the Queen, addressing Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The statement from the Palace expressed Her Majesty's 'concern' over the race issues raised in the interview, explaining that they would be dealt with in private and adding that 'some recollections may vary'.

"In those months when I was pregnant, we had in tandem the conversations of him not being given security or a title, and also concerns about how dark his skin might be when he’s born," Meghan said to Oprah during the interview.

When asked the name of the person who had made the comments, Meghan responded, "I think that would be very damaging to them."
