The world has been left in shocked after Meghan Markle made some startling revelations about getting married into the royal family. According to Meghan in a recent Oprah Winfrey interview, not only she but her first son baby Archie had been subjected to racial discrimination.
According to Markle, before the birth of baby Archie, some royal family members had raised concerns about the skin tone the little one would be born with - obviously worried that he may be on the darker side.
The former Dutchess and wife of Prince Harry then revealed that baby Archie had been stripped of any royal titles and was also not provided with the royal protection that is customary for babies born in the royal lineage.
Many people who had been watching the Meghan Markle and Prince Harry story closely have headed online to share the various claims made by Markle in the tell-all interview. Read a few of their comments below:
"She is making this up, the royals accepted her... why would they not accept their child? This interview is such an attention-seeking scam."
"This made me so mad and I am disgusted and feel for Meghan. She is doing what Diana was trying to do, expose the royal family."
"This is so heartbreaking. As a mother, I don’t know how I would react to knowing that my unborn child is already subjected to racism. He wasn’t even born yet and they already don’t accept him because of what potentially his skin colour was going to be. They are evil. #wickedwindsors"
Briefly.co.za also reported that Serena Williams is one of the many celebrities who have headed online to publicly show support for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry after the former royals did an interview with Oprah Winfrey and revealed a number of their struggles while serving in the royal family.
"Meghan Markle, my selfless friend, lives her life - and leads by example - with empathy and compassion. She teaches me every day what it means to be truly noble. Her words illustrate the pain and cruelty she's experienced," wrote Williams.
She then goes on to reflect how, like Markle, she has been subjected to sexism and racism as well as unfair scrutiny under the watchful eyes of the media. She then calls on people to stand against tabloid journalism and the results of harmful gossip to help bring an end to the unfair treatment of women and people of certain race groups.
