Prince Harry's explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey left the royal family members in shock, especially his grandmother, the Queen, who always had a soft spot for him.


When Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle sat with Oprah Winfrey for two hours to discuss their journey and plight in the royal family, many knew that it would leave the family in a bad place.

During the bombshell tell-all interview, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made some shocking revelations about the royal family, which included claims that certain royal family members were racist.

Since the interview aired, reports have it that members of the royal family are shocked and worried over their declining reputation. More than anyone else, Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, is said to be incredibly hurt.

The Queen has a soft spot for her grandson, and despite his decisions over the last year, she has tried her best to show support to him in the best way she could, but his interview has come as a huge blow to her.


Sources close to the royal family revealed that she has been trying to understand things from Harry and Markle's perspective but is shocked to find out the extent of the claims they made.

While the Queen has not watched the now-famous interview, she has been briefed by members of the royal family and has been attending crisis meetings in a bid to remedy the damage.

Prince Charles wanted a statement to rebuke every claim the couple made.


During their interview with Oprah, Archie's parents revealed that they were subjected to several injustice from the royal family, and Markle was given unfair treatment.

Perhaps the most shocking of their claims was that some royal family members held concerns about the color of Archie's skin before he was born, sparking the idea of racism within the esteemed family.


Celebrities and viewers in the world called out the monarchy, with some branding them racists. Some viewers remarked that Markle's poor treatment by the royal family was because of her skin color.

Amidst the storm generated by the March 7 interview, Buckingham Palace released a statement on behalf of the Queen and noted that the allegations would be addressed privately.


In the statement, the family said that they were shocked to find out how challenging the last few years had been for Harry and Markle and noted that some recollections might vary, but the allegations would be taken seriously.

Reports have it that the 94-year-old British monarch and her son Prince Charles were not on the same page on how best to respond to Harry and Markle's claims.

While the Queen wanted a more modest approach, Prince Charles wanted a statement to rebuke every claim the couple made, but members of the royal family voted against it. They plan to treat things as a family.
