British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday expressed his “highest admiration” for Queen Elizabeth after an explosive interview by her grandson Prince Harry and his wife Meghan. “I’ve always had the very best admiration for the queen and therefore the unifying role she plays in our country and across the Commonwealth,” Johnson told reporters, declining to comment further when asked about Meghan’s comments on racism and pain. The two-hour sit-down with Oprah Winfrey by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was the foremost startling since Harry’s late mother Diana made her own bombshell revelations in 1995, and triggered similar questions on the power of Queen Elizabeth II’s family to weather the storm. Harry described feeling “really let down” by his father Charles, who had stopped taking his phone involves a time. Both Charles – the queen’s heir – and Harry’s elder brother William were “trapped” by the conventions of the monarchy. They don’t get to go away. and that i have huge compassion for that,” Harry said within the interview broadcast on CBS Sunday night, explaining the couple’s dramatic exit from royal life last year, which has now seen them stripped by the queen of their honorary titles and patronages. Boris Johnson Meghan, a mixed-race former television actress, described herself as “naively” unprepared for all times within the autoclave of the royalty. But she said she was denied help for a psychological state crisis, targeted by lies in an event involving her sister-in-law, and there was even official concern about the complexion of her unborn son. I… just didn’t want to be alive anymore. which was a really clear and real and frightening constant thought,” she told Winfrey, describing the impact of vitriol from hostile tabloids in Britain and social media. Asked if she had had suicidal thoughts while pregnant with son Archie, Meghan replied:Boris Johnson 1

“Yes. This was very, very clear. Meghan said she ultimately reached bent one among Princess Diana’s best friends for support. “Who else could understand what it’s actually like on the inside?” Meghan, 39, also told of “concerns” about “how dark” Archie’s skin would be, saying Harry revealed to her conversations over their baby’s appearance, also because the security he would be entitled to, before his birth on May 6, 2019. The couple both declined to call the royal involved but Winfrey said Monday that Harry told her the queen, 94, and her 99-year-old husband, Philip weren’t a part of the conversations. The revelations have triggered a storm of reaction on each side of the Atlantic, particularly the explosive claims about racism, opening up a wider debate about prejudice in British society. Harry himself has faced accusations of employing a racist slur against a former military colleague, and of wearing a Nazi soldier’s uniform at a flowery dress party. He has said Meghan had made him confront the difficulty and since vowed to tackle institutional racism. The couple are outspoken supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement. Anti-monarchy group Republic said the revelations showed the institution was “rotten to the core” and facing “its worst crisis since the abdication in 1936”, pertaining to Edward VIII’s departure. Meghan won wide-ranging support, including from tennis ace Serena Williams and Bernice King, daughter of the civil rights leader Luther King Jr. Amid political involves a full investigation, Johnson didn’t watch the interview but believes there’s “no place in society for racism”, his spokesman told reporters. Meghan has been portrayed in some British newspapers as headstrong, calculating and spoiled, and therefore the couple reckless and selfish for quitting royal life. Criticism has mounted with Philip currently in hospital, and Buckingham Palace last week hitting back with allegations that Meghan had bullied household staff. The interview on CBS was a settling of scores, royal author Robert Hardman said the revelations went beyond even expectations. Clearly the couple possibly were hoping to clear the air and set the record straight, but in doing so they’ve obviously invited an entire new set of questions,” he told AFP. In Australia, The Daily Telegraph’s TV editor Holly Byrnes said the royals had “learned nothing since Diana died and should well die due to it”. Chris Ship, royal editor at ITV, which airs the interview in Britain on Monday night, said the couple “effectively loaded up a B-52 bomber, flew it over Buckingham Palace then unloaded their arsenal right above it, bomb by heavily-loaded bomb”. The talk about racism and suicide would prompt further questions, and their criticisms would likely attend the very top, he added. Harry, 36, said the pair, who have secured lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify, had to seek out how to form money as “my family literally cut me off financially.” “I’m sad that what’s happened went on, but… we did everything that we could to form it work,” he said. In one happier revelation, the couple disclosed the gender of their second baby, due later this year. “It’s a girl!” Harry and Meghan chimed in tandem. Meghan flatly denied reports — feasted on by the gossip press — that she made Prince William’s wife Kate cry before her wedding to Harry, saying the truth was the other. But despite Kate apologising, the rumour was allowed to persist, she added, calling the claims “the beginning of a true character assassination” and “a turning point” in her relations with the royalty. “I came to know that not only was I not being protected but that they were willing to mislead protect other members of the family.” The May 2018 wedding ahead of Winfrey and other VIP guests, in fact, was a “spectacle for the world”, Meghan revealed. But the couple had actually got privately married three days earlier, by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
