The issues they have raised, especially racial ones, are of concern to us. Although some memories may differ, they are taken very seriously and will be treated privately by the family. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be beloved family members,

Recall that in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan Markle made several high-profile statements. So, the Duchess admitted that because of the constant harassment from the press, she almost took her own life during her first pregnancy. Meghan also reported racist attacks from several members of the royal family, whose names she refused to name, not wanting to spoil their reputation. According to the Duchess, during her pregnancy with her son Archie, they openly discussed the color of the skin of their first child with Harry. In the same interview, Meghan shared some good news: for example, she said that she and Harry are now expecting a daughter.
