    Can’t deny but can’t accept also the accusations so they put out this statement. Compare this to the bullying statement they put out. 🙄Torment harry and meghan publicly with stories leaked from the firm then tell it is a private matter

    Their statement seems like it came from Human Resources. I know because I work in Human Resources!

    Sure you will. Like Diana?

  4. We’ll , the palace is not calling them liars! That says a lot too!

  5. They were so quick to investigate claims of bullying by one party but not of any wrongdoing on their part concerning racist comments, mental health negligence, and Prince Andrew?

  6. I’m sure the sadness come from them being exposed.

  7. How long would it take for The Queen to ask: *”Will the REAL racist please stand up?”*

    • Very Funny, is this to tell the Truth?

    • Dan Hitchman | March 9, 2021 at 4:28 PM | Reply

      Maybe she asked the question about the baby. Elizabeth is notoriously two faced.

    • Clemence Villiers | March 9, 2021 at 5:56 PM | Reply

      @Dan Hitchman Lol you could be correct I really don’t trust her she seems to easily discriminate against others she always have a look of I’m better than you on her face and she’s never ever without gloves when she shakes people’s hands.

    • The Queen has better things to do than keep time with Meghan and Harry narcissistic tantrums

  8. Melody Williams | March 9, 2021 at 3:18 PM | Reply

    No one listened to them when they needed help so I assume they had to go that route

    • Gwendolyn Williams | March 9, 2021 at 4:45 PM | Reply

      Apparently you are listening.

    • I find it impossible to believe no one helped this couple. It’s either black or white with markle, the truth is somewhere in between.

    • XxPoopy_ headxX | March 9, 2021 at 9:28 PM | Reply

      The only reason they are going this route is due to the perpetuating lies from the British tabloid which keeps ongoing even after they fled to the US.

    • Jackie Biggs | March 9, 2021 at 9:44 PM | Reply

      Them saying they didn’t know how tk get help when Harry was all over mental health awareness with Kate and William. Come on don’t be so gullible.

    • @kumasucki Sound like a Piers Morgan fan.

  9. If the palace were going to deal with it privately, why wasn’t it done earlier?

  10. Maite Terblanche | March 9, 2021 at 3:39 PM | Reply

    The member of the family who said the racist things has the opportunity to stand up by themselves. Why dont they own up and apologize?

    • Candy Wilson | March 9, 2021 at 11:39 PM | Reply

      Pride !

    • Charisse Johnson | March 10, 2021 at 6:43 AM | Reply

      @Brett Nine and you’re still commenting. I know they can’t comment. It’ll show weakness. I’d like to see you isolated, pregnant can’t really say anything to friends or family. Trashed in the media daily. No one is bashing Harry. He wanted out for a long time. This is the first time her voice is heard defending herself to people like you.

    • @Charisse Johnson Okay, Charisse, so now you sound as though you work for Meghan’s PR company. Pregnant, with her rich and powerful husband, living in the lap of luxury paid for by the tax payer, with the best medical care in the world available to her. You truly are delusional. Ms. Markle thought she could throw her weight around, and it didn’t work out for her. She is a seasoned campaigner, and well able to tell tall tales. Harry is a fool. Incidentally, I’ll comment where and when I choose.

      @Brett Nine it was my opinion on your subject matter. D!ckhead.

    Just because you have all these fancy royal names doesn’t stop you from being racist…

  12. Why address it privately???
    When in the last 2 years plus…she’s been bullied publicly

  13. Gayla Estebane | March 9, 2021 at 3:58 PM | Reply

    They should address this publicly. Why make the same mistake they did with Princess Diana.

  14. I’m from the south I can personally vouch for the crazy things racist white people say specially if there’s never ever been a black person around

    • I know, I been leaving in the south for 20 years, some things I’ve heard some racist people say like its nothing, broke my heart. They don’t see themselves as racist, its so embedded in their way of living, saying those things feel natural to them. Awful but real.

    • Yep.

    • I honestly believe that “fear of losing their white privilege” and just pure ignorance and racism is embedded in their psyche. I moved away, but I have witnessed racists spout their vile racist comments to strangers that they have never met before being so comfortable that every other white person is as racist as they are, that they will walk up to a stranger and start talking racist filth. My brother still lives there, and he tells me of experiences where that still happens to him.
      He hates it. He has told me that after he responds to whatever racist comment he has to confront, he’s sometimes wondering if they are going to shoot him on his way to his truck. There was one particular hateful intense racist who threatened him after he confronted their uninvited bigotry.
      But he also said that they often they just look dumbfounded that he’s not into hearing their racist bs and that he vehemently disagrees.
      He is an introverted pacifist by nature, but they would never know that by his responses to self-entitled racists who invade his space with their hate.

  15. “Some recollections may vary…” So, The Queen would rather believe anybody else but the grandson, who experienced it directly. What a lovely family. Apparently, Loyalty does not run in this family but fear of bad publicity makes them stay together miserably.

    • @Rob K response to your 3 points
      1. They did not ask for a ‘Prince’ title for Archie, what was mentioned in the interview was a ‘title’ which does not automatically amount to a ‘Prince’, so your argument about the British parliament is a moot one, please do not exaggerate and spread rumours
      2. The racial tone about the baby’s colour was asked to Harry while Meghan was pregnant. Why shouldn’t they offence about their unborn child being judged on colour before he was even born? What if he is pale as bread or brown/black as God intended colours to be? He /she is still beloved baby. Also, It can be a micro-aggressive way of asking to abort/never have a child for fear of colour depending on who is saying and how it has been said. You don’t have the right to judge their comments because you are not the parent, and they are.
      3. Why didn’t they say out about it earlier? I will answer your question with a question, didn’t you listen to the interview on how royal family operate? They are a bunch of cold hearted people who are staying a family because of the censure and unwillingness to let go of the archaic racist institution. H&M had to literally move out to talk about it because they weren’t heard before, only tragedy awaits if they continue there apparently. I am so very glad they moved out.

    • TheDiamond2009 | March 10, 2021 at 4:42 AM | Reply

      It depends on who you believe, Parham. Is there any part of you that could maybe, just maybe, imagine that it could be Meghan who is twisting the truth? I mean, it’s not like she doesn’t have a history of manipulation.

    • @TheDiamond2009 if we are talking manipulation, the Royal Family have no ground stand on, anywhere in the world, buddy😂. So I would rather believe Prince Harry and Meghan.

      Just a footnote for all those supporting Diana now and trolling Meghan, Nobody believed Diana until she met with a tragic end. I am of Prince William’s age and I remember well.

    • @K J Just caught up with your comment, what a surprise your 3 points are ….well…nonsense, I did not write they asked for Archie to be made a Prince, I said it would happen without asking when Charles takes the throne. Harry was asked about the “race question ” when he joined the conversation he told Oprah “it happened before the marriage “. You have no clue whatsoever as to the warmth or lack thereof of the Royal family, but from your phraseology you are American and have barely a grasp of the Monarchy or what it stands for, so keep your dumb crass theories to yourself, perhaps restrict yourself to comments about Trump or anything that you actually have knowledge.

    • @Rob K from what you have written here, I can confidently say I know more than you about the Monarchy and the UK political system. Just because you live in Britain does not mean you know monarchy or the system better. Now go and read up. Peace

    Allegations of Meghan bullying others have to be investigated with a public announcement. But allegations of racism and mistreatment of her are going to be dealt with privately. 🤔 Uh-huh…

    • James Ogletree | March 9, 2021 at 11:18 PM | Reply

      The royal family investigating themself is a non-starter. They can’t get to the bottom of this problem investigating themself. They want Harry and Meghan to do their work for them. They could question Charles and William and their staff about what they know about this. I would bet Harry and Meghan have all their evidence all filed and cataloged. Plus, I heard Oprah has at least 2 more hours of the interview that had to cut.

    • Candy Wilson | March 9, 2021 at 11:23 PM | Reply

      @James Ogletree They already know who said it . What type of statement was that anyway they didn’t out right deny it .

    • The bullying of public servants is serious, asking what beautiful colour your child might be isn’t.

    • Spot on!! The queen’s Council and her advisers more than likely might be the main culprits here. It seems to be that a smear campaign is on to discredit Mehgan Markle at all cost.

  17. Marci Robins | March 9, 2021 at 5:49 PM | Reply

    I’ll discount Buckingham Palace’s response, the same way they wanted Meghan to be 50% less of herself. They won’t do anything. Much like they did nothing with Andrew.

  18. The Queen is “saddened” to hear that her grandson and his wife felt this way? Like she was clueless as to why they left the toxic family and then she cut them off financially? Or refused to give Harry’s son a title?

    • Tim Marshall | March 9, 2021 at 7:19 PM | Reply

      I think people should carefully approach that assertion about titles. The British press predict the first names of future royal kids and would go absolutely bonkers if out of the blue a kid was denied a title they are supposed to have when nothing out of the ordinary has occured except the kids skin tone. There isn’t a way for the royal family to even do that without being dunked on unless we are talking about when Meghan and Harry were giving up duties and leaving the country which naturally alters their rank and is part of the queen’s duty because royals only have those titles via the obligations they have to military and other national or commonwealth organisations

      @Tim Marshall Watch the interview! When she was pregnant she was informed that her child wouldn’t receive a title or security! They’re RACIST

      I think it was more than a tittle they were being threaten by racist and they wouldn’t allow them to have guards and did nothing about them lying on her because it was coming from the inside and given to the tabloids .

  19. They’re not saddened that it happened. They’re only saddened that it’s been made public.

  20. “The greatest problem in the world today is intolerance.”
    – Diana Spencer

    • @Kaye Castleman no, you’re both wrong.
      Markle craved the limelight and got burned in the formality that comes with being a Royal!
      They both walked away but expected to retain titles and privileges to develop a “brand” to monetize thier fame- they aren’t that interesting at least not in the UK- perhaps the US sees them differently. The UK have accepted they no longer have Royal priviledges- Prince Edward chose the same- you don’t see him craving the limelight.
      Shame on them both!

    • @Liron Deline no- thats the narrative that plays the hand of sympathy. It was never about race. It was Markles refusal to fit into the Royal way of life. They wrongly thought they could walk away and retain titles and priviledges. More fool them!

    • @EcoMan 2000 If Meghan was white and British, you really think any of what happened would have happened??

    • @Liron Deline if Meghan wanted her fairytale wedding and princess life, she’d have sacrificied as Kate and William.
      Race has nothing to do with it- her choice

    • @EcoMan 2000 That’s easy for you to say. You are not the one in her shoes. Whose to say that’s not what she initially wanted or thought it would be like?? But it’s hard to live any kind of life when there is so much prejudice, bias and lack of support.
