A royal expert has pinpointed “one glaring omission” from Meghan Markle’s explosive statement reacting to reports on a letter she reportedly sent to King Charles. With the King’s historic Coronation just days away, controversy around Meghan Markle’s latest public statement regarding the monarch is creating waves threatening to rock the Royal Family. The Duchess of Sussex recently responded to a story in The Telegraph which claimed that King Charles wrote to his daughter-in-law following her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
In the interview, Meghan told the US presenter of a member of the royal family expressing concerns about the colour of her unborn son’s skin.
The then-Prince of Wales wrote to the former Suits actress to address her “racism concerns”, however the Telegraph reported that Ms Markle deemed his letter not to be satisfactory.
The publication’s royal editor Victoria Ward wrote: “A source has said that the Duchess feels she has not received a satisfactory response to her concerns”.
“The Duchess is understood to feel that concerns she has raised, which crucially include the way in which bullying complaints against her were handled and the allegation that neglect by the institution led her to feel suicidal, have still not been resolved.”
The letters were also alleged to reveal that the senior royal who had the concerns about unborn Archie.
Responding to the claims in the publication, Meghan and Harry biographer Omid Scobie released a statement on behalf of the Duchess: “The Duchess of Sussex is going about her life in the present, not thinking about correspondence from two years ago related to conversations from four years ago. Any suggestion otherwise is false and frankly ridiculous.”
But royal expert Daniela Elser said there was a notable omission from the statement, which was a denial of the allegations that the King’s letter in response to her racism claims was unsatisfactory, as well as the claim that the so-called ‘royal racist’ was named.
Ms Elser wrote for news.com.au: “Now, maybe the 41-year-old and her press team as they sat around an ethically sourced conference table felt that these two sentences constituted a clear refutation of her involvement in any way with the Telegraph piece.
“With two small children, a blog to possibly be relaunching and the occasional rumour of political ambitions, the former Suits actress hardly has the time for rear view-mirror navel-gazing.
“Still, it seems a strange omission or oversight to not include a clear rejection of the Telegraph story given. (In fact, putting out this statement only confirmed that these letters had whizzed backwards and forwards between California and London in 2021.)”
