Lorraine Kelly has expressed her hope that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could ‘find a path’ towards reconciliation with other members of the royal family, describing the fallout as ‘blinking sad’.
Today, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s bombshell documentary was released in its first stage on Netflix, shedding further light on how they feel and lead their lives behind closed doors.
The couple opened up about how they were first connected on social media ahead of their first date, with the series also brewing controversy over claims that the Palace were not contacted for comment.
In episode two, Prince Harry, 38, spoke out about the ‘racist undertones’ and ‘outright racism’ in the press that was directed at Meghan, 41.
On Thursday’s Lorraine, the TV presenter expressed how ‘sad’ she found the friction between Meghan, Harry and the other members of the royal family, as well as the racism Meghan has faced over the years.
‘One of the saddest things about all of this is the fact that, you know… the accusations of racism within the royal family and the racist abuse that she absolutely did suffer. We’ve seen that online. Social media, it was horrendous, and indeed some parts of the press as well,’ said Lorraine, 63.Harry and Meghan are opening up about their lives on their own terms (Picture: Netflix) Lorraine found the situation ‘blinking sad’ (Picture: ITV)
She then added: ‘It’s just so blinking sad, isn’t it? Because we saw how much she brought to the royal family before it all went horribly wrong.
‘I just wish they could somehow find a path for both of them still to be there.’
At the beginning of the Netflix documentary, which is titled Harry & Meghan, a caption reads: ‘This is a first-hand account of Harry & Meghan’s story, told with never before seen personal archive.
‘All interviews were completed by August 2022. Members of the Royal Family declined to comment on the content within this series.’
Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace have previously denied receiving this approach for right of reply, while Metro.co.uk has contacted the royal family for further comment.
In the series, the Sussexes shared private messages they sent to each other when they first started dating, with Harry turning up to their first date embarrassed and flustered because he had been running late.
Lorraine airs weekdays from 9am on ITV. Harry & Meghan is available to watch on Netflix.
