Prince Harry and his spouse Meghan late on Sunday gave their first main TV interview since stepping again from the British royal household a yr in the past.
Following is a choice of reactions on social and mainstream media:
REPUBLIC, CAMPAIGN GROUP FOR ABOLITION OF THE MONARCHY
“The monarchy has just been hit by its worst crisis since the abdication in 1936. Whether for the sake of Britain or for the sake of the younger royals this rotten institution needs to go.”
SERENA WILLIAMS, US TENNIS PLAYER
“Meghan Markle, my selfless friend, lives her life – and leads by example – with empathy and compassion. She teaches me every day what it means to be truly noble. Her words illustrate the pain and cruelty she’s experienced.”
BILLIE JEAN KING, FORMER US TENNIS CHAMPION
“Among the revelations from the Meghan and Harry interview is Meghan’s struggle with mental health. Her honesty will hopefully lead to more acceptance and more help for those who need it.”
FORMER ‘STAR TREK’ ACTOR GEORGE TAKEI
“Maybe they should just make Oprah queen and call it a day.”
BRITISH BROADCASTER PIERS MORGAN
“This interview is an absolutely disgraceful betrayal of the Queen and the Royal Family. I expect all this vile destructive self-serving nonsense from Meghan Markle – but for Harry to let her take down his family and the Monarchy like this is shameful.”
MICHELLE TAUBER, PEOPLE MAGAZINE
“It’s really sort of seismic to hear a member of the royal family say that she herself felt that much in crisis.”
DAILY MAIL, UK, FRONT PAGE HEADLINE
“Meghan accuses Palace of racism”
DAILY MIRROR, UK, FRONT PAGE HEADLINE
“They asked how dark Archie’s skin would be”

“I’m not buying it. NOT BUYING IT. Meghan wanted it all. MONEY GRABBING ROYALS, you Nailed it OPRAH!”
BERNICE KING, YOUNGEST CHILD OF THE LATE US CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVIST MARTIN LUTHER KING JR
“Royalty is not a shield from the devastation and despair of racism.”
DAN WOOTTON, FORMER CORRESPONDENT OF BRITAIN’S SUN NEWSPAPER
“Make no mistake, Meghan has just declared war on the Royal Family, telling Oprah: “They have been prepared to lie to guard different family members.”
SAEED JONES, US AUTHOR
“WHEW, they virtually killed this lady. I’m so glad Meghan and Harry bought that child and bought the hell out of there.”
ANA NAVARRO-CARDENAS, GUEST CO-HOST OF TALK SHOW ‘THE VIEW’
“OOF. There hasn’t been this a lot English tea spilled in America because the Boston Tea Party.”
ABBY D PHILIP CNN POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT
“This is heartbreaking.”
NINA PARKER, E! NEWS CORRESPONDENT
“You know why Black girls consider Meghan? Because we all know precisely what micro aggressions seem like. And how they slowly drive you insane.”
BRITTANY PACKNETT CUNNINGHAM, US BLACK ACTIVIST AND PODCAST HOST
“The distinction in remedy between Meghan and Kate is without doubt one of the clearest examples of the misogynoir at play & is a reminder that if they’ll do this to a Duchess, it is occurring to Black girls *on a regular basis*.”
