The Netflix-worthy drama continues, folks. After taking some time following Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s bombshell-laden interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday night, Buckingham Palace has issued its official response to the couple’s various disturbing allegations about their brief time as working royals.
Which, yes, means that the Queen has spoken. And not via Notes App statement, YouTube apology video or Red Table Talk appearance, despite the many memes that suggested she might go those routes.

If you actually watch the interview, it’s clear that neither Meghan nor Harry have specific beef with Her Majesty. Rather, they take issue with other unnamed royals (what’s up, Prince Charles?) and basically… the institution of monarchy as a whole.
Still, the statement comes on the behalf of Queen Elizabeth, and it’s brief, to the point and a little sad:
“The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.
“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.
“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”
