Buckingham Palace has issued a statement in response to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, saying issues of race are “concerning” and “will be addressed”.


Following the explosive interview airing in full on UK television last night, a palace spokesman said: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.


“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.


“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”


It comes after fallout continues from the remarkable programme, which debuted on CBS in the US on Sunday night and was aired in the UK last night.
