Michelle Obama is sharing her thoughts about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey last week.
The former first lady was asked for her thoughts on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s headline-making interview last week during her own recent sit-down with Access Hollywood.
“My hope is that, when I think about what they’re going through, I think about the importance of family and I just pray that there is forgiveness and there is clarity and love and resolve at some point in time,” Obama, 57, said. “Because there’s nothing more important than family.”
Meghan, 39, and Harry, 36, opened up about their time as senior royals during their interview last week with Winfrey, 67.
Among the revelations, the Duchess of Sussex said there were “concerns and conversations about how dark [her son Archie’s] skin might be when he’s born.”
Elsewhere, Meghan said that Kate Middleton made her cry ahead of her 2018 wedding to Harry—contrary to previous reports that the opposite took place. The former Suits actress shared that she and Harry had already gotten married three days before the royal wedding, in a private ceremony.
“The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement released on behalf of Queen Elizabeth.
Prince William later told a reporter: “We are very much not a racist family,” in response to his brother and sister-in-law’s revelations.
