Celebrities react to Meghan and Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah, Report

Last night, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey aired in the UK (and after pulling in 17 million viewers in the US the day before, we imagine the numbers to be equally impressive this side of the pond). At times, the conversation was hard to watch, with Meghan bravely speaking out about the racism she experienced from within the royal household and tabloid press.

Meghan revealed that she struggled with suicidal thoughts while pregnant with their son Archie and that there were ‘concerns’ about ‘how dark’ his skin would be when he was born.

Prince Harry meanwhile that his late mother Princess Diana would be ‘sad and angry about how this has panned out’.

Little Mix star Leigh-Anne said: ‘As it’s international women’s day, I wish to send my love and support to Meghan. Too often we disregard a women’s emotions and mental strength. No more. Today, I urge anyone within a position where by they feel silenced, underrated, overlooked or less than to speak up and speak out.

‘It was the best thing I ever did and I know there are women all around the world holding pain within, out of fear of not being heard and taken seriously. We owe it to each other as women to stand together and put a stop to gender inequality and race inequality. 🖤’

New Zealand’s prime minister Jacinda Ardern said she had not sensed an appetite for “significant change” to the country’s constitutional arrangements.

When asked if the picture painted of the royal family in the interview had given her pause, she said: “I’ve said before that, you know, I’ve not sensed an appetite from New Zealanders for significant change in our constitutional arrangements, and I don’t expect that that’s likely to change quickly from New Zealanders.”
