An editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
THE QUEEN IS NOT AMUSED. She is “saddened” by the challenges faced by Meghan and Harry as outlined in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired in the U.K. a day after it was seen here.
She has a right to be sad — the prince and his wife have thoroughly trashed the Royal family as uncaring racists.
I must be the only one on the planet who couldn’t be bothered to listen to two hours of softball questions from Winfrey, and the self-serving answers, but I’m catching up.
Meghan told Winfrey she had, at one point, felt suicidal, and that somebody in the Royals had wondered aloud what colour baby Archie’s skin would be. She further stated that the Royals refused to help her out when she mentioned her depression.
