Her Majesty said in a statement an alleged racist comment made about what colour the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby Archie would be was ‘concerning’ and will be ‘addressed by the family privately’.
‘The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.
‘Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.’
It is understood the Queen waited until Tuesday to comment on the tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey so Britons had the chance to watch it first – but they are not expected to make any further comments.
It comes after senior royals broke cover today amid claims the palace was paralysed with fear that Harry and Meghan could reveal the figure accused of commenting on Archie’s skin colour.
