Queen Elizabeth has finally responded to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey; royal experts break-down what she meant on her statement.
The Queen released a statement in response to the Sussexes' revelations, and royal experts reportedly dissected what she said word for word. According to the Daily Mail, her comment suggested recollections may vary on certain events following the accusations.
However, she insisted that family members will always love Prince Harry and Markle. Royal experts gave their interpretation and analyzed key phrases from the Royal statement.
DECODING THE QUEEN’S STATEMENT
The 94-year-old stated the entire family is saddened to learn the full extent of how the Duke and Duchess have been treated for the last few years.
Former Press Secretary to the Queen, Charles Anson, said her message was edged with sadness. He reportedly believes she finds the bombshells and wants to approach the situation fairly but would rather do so privately.
Anson added the main point was that whatever decision the Sussexes take, the Queen and relatives wish them well.
Royal author Phil Dampier reportedly chimed in and said the Queen must be desperate for healing the wounds and dealing with the matter in private.
When addressing the racism claims, she mentioned it is alarming, and that some recollections may vary. The matriarch noted that the allegations are taken seriously and would be addressed by the family privately.
Dampier broke it down and said what she meant was, Prince Harry and Markle may be giving their version of events without saying they are lying.
MEDIA REACTION TO THE STATEMENT
As expected, the media reacted to the phrase "recollections may vary," mentioned by the Queen. According to The Guardian, media publications put the Royal family in the spotlight after the release of the statement.
The Daily Mail launched a poll claiming that there is a massive backlash against the Sussexes and the British natives want them stripped off their titles. According to the outlet, 51% want the couple to lose their royal titles, whereas 28% are against it.
RACISM ALLEGATIONS TOWARDS THE ROYALS
The Palace had been under immense pressure to respond to the interview, in which Markle revealed that before her son Archie was born, his skin tone became a choice for conversation. However, she did not mention any names.
PIERS MORGAN QUITS
It includes British native and broadcast journalist, Piers Morgan who reportedly shared he did not believe anything Markle said about her mental health. Morgan was very blunt in his comments regarding the Duchess, which resulted in a row.
Following his remarks and the row created, Morgan reportedly quit ITV's "Good Morning Britain" after six years. The news channel confirmed that his exit is immediate but did not state who would be replacing him.
ITV announced the decision after Ofcom said it was investigating his comments after receiving 41,000 complaints.
ROYAL FASHION DECODED
While Morgan quits his job over the royal couple's controversial interview, we look at their fashion hidden meaning. According to Marie Claire, the Royal family has a way of communicating with the public through fashion.
Kate Middleton has worn bright colors throughout 2020 during Zoom calls, which some people believe is her way of showing support for the UK's National Health Service.
Rainbows have reportedly been used as a symbol of solidarity for health care workers since last year. The Sussexes wore coordinated red ensembles at the 2020 Mountbatten Festival of Music.
Many assumed the message behind the attires' was to symbolize Prince Harry's military uniform, which has a longstanding history in British history.
