Harry and Meghan: where do allegations of racism and mistreatment leave monarchy?

News Correspondent

Harry and Meghan have shown Buckingham Palace that if they thought the era of explosive tell-all interviews was over, then it was wrong.

The Duke and Duchess’s interview with Oprah Winfrey clearly laid out the accusations: that Charles refuses to talk to Harry, that Meghan had suicidal thoughts but was told she shouldn’t seek help, and perhaps the most damaging that an unidentified member of the royal family asked how “dark” their son Archie’s skin would be.

All we know about that alleged racism is that Harry now says it didn’t come from the Queen or Prince Philip.

The Palace is yet to respond.
