Meghan Markle Oprah interview – Live updates as Queen ‘extends olive branch’ to Prince Harry and Duchess after TV claims

THE Queen finally broke her silence over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview, extending an “olive branch” to the couple.

Making claims of racism at the heart of the royal family and giving their side of the Megxit row, Harry and Meghan shocked the world when the interview was broadcast on Sunday and Monday night.

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.

It said “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years  have been for Harry and Meghan

“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.

Meghan admitted that she had suicidal thoughts during her early days in the Royal Family and that she begged in vain for mental health support.
