Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will discuss the issue of race in Britain during their interview with Oprah Winfrey.
ITV’s Royal Editor Chris Ship revealed the issue will be discussed with Oprah when the interview is broadcast in the US on Sunday night.
‘I know that she is going to mention things like mental health and the impact of being in the UK had on her mental health. I know that she’s going to mention about the press intrusion, but also she’s going to raise the issue of race in Britain’ Chris Ship told Good Morning Britain.
Meghan became the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family after marrying Harry in 2018. Last year she praised Black Lives Matter protests in America, calling them a ‘beautiful thing’ and previously spoke out about ‘structural racism’ in Britain.
Meanwhile, ITV has been branded ‘deplorable’ after is paid £1 million for rights to air the Oprah interview in the UK. The broadcaster beat Sky to the rights after the BBC declined to broadcast it.
ITV has been criticised on the timing as the Duke of Edinburgh battles heart problems in hospital.
