Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey had bombshell 'royal family' revelations spilling left, right and centre. From an important member of the famous family allegedly worried about Meghan and Harry's son Archie's skin tone (on how dark his skin might be and what that would mean and look like) to Harry being let down by his father Prince Charles, the couple were indeed no holds barred during their candid conversation with Oprah.

If you're wondering how the royal family plans to reciprocate to Meghan and Harry's many accusations; especially on the racism aspect, something which people in the UK might be waiting for an explanation of, Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie, who contacted various aides at the royal households to get a reaction or comment, revealed to E! News, "I think we can expect something this week. What that will say or address is another issue altogether." According to Omid, the royal family is taking their time to work on an "appropriate statement." With Oprah clarifying that it was neither Queen Elizabeth nor Prince Philip who had 'Archie's skin tone' conversations with Harry, Omid theorised with E!, "With Harry making it very clear that it wasn't his grandmother or his grandfather, it leaves a very small pool of individuals, two of which will be the future kings of our country," referencing Charles and Prince William.

On the other hand, the White House applauded the couple, especially Meghan for acting courageously while speaking candidly about her mental health struggles. About Meghan and Harry's interview and whether President Joe Biden and his wife, first lady Dr. Jill Biden had any reaction to it, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki shared during a briefing, "For anyone to come forward and speak about their own struggles with mental health and tell their own personal story, that takes courage," according to Entertainment Tonight. Psaki added that it's something President Biden believes in while noting how Joe Biden has talked about the importance of investing in mental health, that they're committed to in the future as well, which is something Meghan and Harry also strongly back.

However, Jen also clarified that the White House will refrain from commenting on the couple going forward as Meghan and Harry are "private citizens, sharing their own story and their struggles." On a concluding note, Psaki stated that the US continues to have "a strong and abiding relationship with the British people" and "a special partnership with the government of the United Kingdom on a range of issues."

Megan Markle is nothing but a social climber. The real tragedy is Prince Harry who is completely manipulated by her. When you relinquish your duties towards UK , how on earth you expect the British tax payers money will be spent on your securities?

Meghan and Joe Biden both have mental health issues. But we all knew that before Sunday.
