We don’t usually cover the Royal Family around here, but we’ve loved Meghan Markle ever since she was in Suits, long before she was the Duchess of Sussex. And, Oprah’s sit-down interview with Meghan and Prince Harry that aired yesterday was something else.
Unless you’ve been paying attention to the “so the Royal Family is racist” thru-line, in which case, the fact that her experience was harrowing is upsetting, but not surprising at all.
So far, the Prime Minister has declined to comment. We’ll be over here eating popcorn and waiting for the Royal Family’s “we’re pretending we’re shocked” reaction.
If you missed the interview, you can watch it here on CBS.

10. Can we cancel the monarchy? How does that work? How about their policies?
11. A Notes apology is not going to cut it this time.
12. Oh, you are in for a rude awakening.

14. TBH they had it coming.
15. Maybe it’s time to finally watch The Crown?</h3?

16. Wink wink.
17. Finally, not a reaction, but an important reminder.
The polarity is precisely the issue. The difference in treatment between Meghan and Kate is one of the clearest examples of the misogynoir at play & is a reminder that if they can do that to a Duchess, it’s happening to Black women *everyday*#OprahMeghanHarry#BlackWomenAtWork
