Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, are paying a high price after millions of people from around the world watched the jaw-dropping interview that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did with Oprah Winfrey.
Unlike Queen Elizabeth II, the British monarchy’s future head and his spouse have yet to comment on the many disturbing allegations made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
However, that has not prevented a legion of royal fans who back the Sussexes from flooding the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge‘s Instagram page with harsh comments.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared painful details about the struggles they endured at the hands of other royal family members while residing in London.
Markle confessed that she had suicidal thoughts during the sit-down, and a royal family member mentioned Archie‘s skin color.
Hours before the interview aired, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, appeared in a video where they talked with a black woman who is also an advocate for mental health.
Dr. Zolelwa Sifumba passionately tackled an array of serious topics, including “the importance of looking after those in the medical profession on the front line.”
She explained that after “seeing how the pandemic has exacerbated existing problems for healthcare workers dealing with mental, emotional and physical stress and trauma, and want to be a voice for them.”
Many social media users decided to praise Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, for taking part in this important discussion, while others slammed them for not helping Meghan during her time of need.
A person lashed out at the couple by saying: “William needs to stand with his brother and sister-in-law.”
Another commenter revealed why they would no longer follow the royal duo on Instagram: “Unfollowing, Kate was my idol as a kid, but now I realize none of you are worthy of praise when you treat your own family the way you did.”
This angry Instagram user revealed in the comment section: “Show inclusivity and yet have multiple conversations about how dark Harry’s son will be. Sounds logical!”
A disappointed woman wrote: “Don’t use black women as a prop 🙄would’ve been nice to still have the one family member who looks like and represents a lot of the people of the Commonwealth. #teamharryandmeghan.”
A fourth message read: “My thoughts exactly..nothing screams I’m racist more than a well-placed black women video 24hrs prior to being publicly called out for being racist to a mixed-race baby.”
It has been confirmed that the Queen is looking into the matter.
