We have learned that the mother of the future royal is ready to tell all in an interview with Oprah Winfrey! Apparently, Doria Ragland and the rest of her family have received a lot of hate due to racism ever since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s relationship was announced.
The news of the interview which will be going on air as soon as the Palace gives it the green light comes only two weeks before the Prince and the actress are set to walk down the aisle!
As you may be aware, Meghan Markle is mixed race – her dad is Caucasian while her mother is African-American, which is something without a precedent in the British royal family.
Meghan has talked about the reaction her racial background has created before.
Back in November, she stated that receiving such negative attention for her ethnicity was ‘disheartening.’
One insider is claiming that ‘Oprah and Doria spent a lot of time chatting and they got on quite well. The most significant issue they talked about was race and how horribly some people reacted to Meghan and Harry.’
‘What happened to Meghan and Harry was disgusting and they and all of their family members were horrified. It is an issue close to both Doria and Oprah, who’ve both suffered racism. If the interview happens it’ll be groundbreaking, it only needs the green light from Meghan, Prince Harry, and the Palace.’
Unfortunately, the royal relationship has been surrounded by so much racism that Prince Harry himself was forced to address the problem before.
A statement issued in his name read: ‘His girlfriend’s been subjected to a wave of abuse and harassment. Some has been public – the smear on the front page of a newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the sexism and racism of social media and web comments.’
