Buckingham Palace has released a short statement in response to Prince Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
”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,” according to the statement.
Before it was released, Harry’s father, Prince Charles was asked what he thought of the interview while visiting a COVID-19 pop-up clinic in London.
He stopped and looked up before turning and walking off without comment.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declined to comment on the interview or British monarchy.
”I wish all the members of the royal family all the best, but my focus is getting through this pandemic,” said Trudeau.
”If people want to later talk about constitutional changes and shifting our system of government that’s fine, and they can have those conversations, but right now I’m not having those conversations. I’m focused on getting us through this pandemic.”
