THE Queen finally broke her silence over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview, extending an “olive branch” to the couple.
The Queen initially delayed her response to the biggest crisis to hit to the Royal Family since the 1936 abdication but Buckingham Palace tonight finally put out a statement.
“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. Whilst 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.”
The sign off of the response signals a desire to make amends, but out of the spotlight, royal author Phil Dampier claims.
He said: “By saying Harry and Meghan are lucky loved family members she is throwing out an olive branch and pleading with them not to say anymore and to calm down and start to build bridges.”
During the bombshell conversation with America’s biggest celebrity interviewer, the couple revealed explosive inside information about the Royal Family and also gave their side of the Megxit story.
