Meghan Markle, Prince Harry reveal all in a jaw-dropping interview

In the United Kingdom, major turmoil has been brewing over the recent relationship of Henry David, also known as Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle, leading up to the royal interview with Oprah. However, attention has been shifted towards Prince Philip’s passing this April.

A royal interview that rivals Princess Diana’s from 26 years ago, Meghan and Harry tell all in a two-hour-long Oprah interview, airing on Sunday, March 7. The couple sat down ready to leave everything on the table, telling their story of how their life has been being a part of the Royal Family as newlyweds.

The purpose of this interview was to blast the “racist” Britain, finding an outlet through Oprah since the Royal Family and press have been keeping it under wraps of the treatment Meghan Markle has received for the color of her skin, and the future color of her baby, especially from the Queen of England herself.

“With every family things get serious when you’re brought in to meet the grandmother or the mother,” said Oprah. “The grandmother is the matriarch and, in your situation it’s the Queen.”

Since late October 2016, the pair has been confirmed to be seriously dating, marrying in May 2018, and to the public eye has seemed to have the perfect relationship everyone dreams of having. Behind the curtains, however, Meghan and Harry have been battling to keep their relationship standing against the judgments of the Royal Family.

“In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time… so we have in tandem the conversation of ‘He won’t be given security, he’s not going to be given a title’,” spoke Meghan Markle to Oprah about her future child’s life after leaving the crown. “And also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.” 

The prospect of leaving the crown behind was a conversation Harry and Meghan had for a while before they started realizing the impact it would have on their future baby, that is until people starting having conversations with Harry over ‘how dark their baby is going to be’. The color of their future child was debated and talked over because of what it could potentially mean or look like. This seemed to be the catalyst for the couple in their decision to drop their titles and come forward exposing what led them to this decision.

The interview with Oprah has over 17 million views, sweeping across the globe for everyone to view what may be one of the most anticipated televised interviews for the Royals. But the interview of Meghan and Harry is not the only attention England is receiving.

Around one month after the interview, Prince Philip, at the age of 99, passed away after being the longest-serving royal consort in British history, being at the Queen’s side for more than her six decades of reign. The Prince’s passing was announced by the Queen saying ‘It is with deep sorrow’ for her to announce the death of her beloved husband.

In tribute to Prince Philip, Westminister Abbey began tolling the tenor bell once every 60 seconds, ringing 99 tines to honor his 99 years of life. A 44-gun salute took place for him in cities including London, Edinburgh, Cardiff, and Belfast, etc. All the flags at Buckingham Palace were lowered to half-mast, notices were posted at the gate, and people from all around came to place floral tributes outside the palace, also visiting Windsor Castle to pay their respects.

The passing of Prince Philip was a very sad loss for the Royal Family and the United Kingdom as a whole. All of the events from Meghan and Harry leaving their titles behind, the interview with Oprah, and Prince Philips passing have created major issues and turmoil for the Royal family and its people.
