Buckingham Palace is facing calls for a thorough investigation of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s racism allegations.
Following the shocking CBS interview in which the Duke and Duchess of Sussex accused the royal family of making racist comments aimed at the couple’s child, people have been demanding a probe into the top echelons of the British royal family.
Among other bombshell accusations, Harry and Meghan insisted that a senior royal expressed worries that the couple’s child would be too dark when Meghan was still pregnant with Archie.
After the interview aired across the world, critics of the monarchy were quick to stand behind Meghan and call for the Palace to investigate the shocking allegations.
Speaking on the matter was also MP and Shadow Secretary of State for Education Kate Green who said it is important to address the accusations with “utmost seriousness.”
“If there are allegations of racism, I would expect them to be treated by the Palace with the utmost seriousness and fully investigated,” Green told Sky News.
“I’m sure that the Palace will be thinking very carefully about that and I certainly think people will be wondering what is going to be said. There is never any excuse in any circumstances for racism and I think it is important that action is taken to investigate what are really shocking allegations.”
While Meghan and Harry insisted racism was one of the main reasons why they left the royal family, they didn’t reveal the name of the person who allegedly made the racist comments.
“That conversation, I am never going to share. At the time it was awkward. I was a bit shocked,” Harry told Oprah during the interview.
While Oprah later confirmed that the couple didn’t tell her who they were talking about when they were off-camera, she said Harry told her the comments were not made by the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh.
