The royal family has taken the last two days to meet with their aides and talk over how to respond to the tell-all interview that Oprah Winfrey had with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

With over 17 million USA viewers and 11 million British viewers, the revealing interview has spread across the world, leaving the royal family with the difficult task of responding to all the new information about them that is now public knowledge.

PRIVATE DELIBERATIONS

The last 48 hours have served as a crucial time for the royal family and their trusted advisors to meet and develop a strategy for tackling the challenges they face after the interview.

An inside source told People that plenty of careful consideration has gone into how the monarchy will respond to Markle and Prince Harry's conversation, saying:

"[At the] heart of this is a family, and they should be given the opportunity to discuss the issues raised privately, as a family."

TIMING IS EVERYTHING

The royal family has also been sure to consider the timing of the release of their responding statement as they want to give the British public a chance to watch the CBS special before reading the monarchy's response.

The press has not been hindered in spinning different narratives by emphasizing different portions of the statement.

With that in mind, Buckingham Palace remained silent in the wake of the world's reaction to the revealing interview on Tuesday morning and gathered in crisis talks to work out what they wanted to say and when.

EVENTUAL RESPONSE

After a long 48 hours, Buckingham Palace eventually released a statement on Tuesday morning that contained four sentences. The statement was released on behalf of Queen Elizabeth and reads:

"While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately."

The document also emphasized that the issue of racism that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex raised was particularly concerning and is amongst the things that will be looked at by the monarchy.

PULLED APART

Despite the shortness of the Queen's statement, the press has not been hindered in spinning different narratives by emphasizing different portions of the statement.

Some publications have also included polls in their reports, with the Daily Mail sharing the poll results that show 51% of Britons want the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal titles to be removed.

Another story that the press can't keep their hands off is the rift between Prince William and Prince Harry, which seems to have started when Prince Harry's love entered the picture in 2018.

With Prince William and Kate Middleton still on the inside of the royal family and the escalated tension that arose with the release of Prince Harry and his wife's interview, the strife between the two brothers can be expected.
