The comments made by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in their explosive tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey last month have left the world reeling. Now, a British parliamentarian has spoken out, warning that Meghan’s claims could spell the end of the British monarchy “as we know it.”
Because of Meghan’s accusations of prejudice and mistreatment from within the royal family, former Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott, the first black member of Parliament, told Vanity Fair that the monarchy “as we know it” will last “as long as the queen is alive.”

“I think there will be a huge public discussion… after the Queen dies,” Abbott said. I believe the royal family’s and their advisors’ treatment of Meghan will be part of the case for change.”
With a “clamor to look at the present arrangement and maybe switch to a more Scandinavian monarchy, where you don’t have all the pomp and ceremony,” Abbott predicted that a discussion could even reach the parliament floor.
Meanwhile, royal expert Anna Pasternak believes Meghan’s allegations could prevent Prince Charles from ever becoming king.
“I am not certain we will see Charles rise to the throne,” Pasternak said. “The Sussexes have ignited something in this country that is so profoundly incendiary that it is transforming the face of Britain, and I believe the monarchy as an outdated institution could well fall.”
“Both sides are like wounded animals,” Pasternak said, questioning whether Meghan will ever visit the United Kingdom again.
“Harry said that there has been a great deal of suffering. Well, the Windsors have taken a lot of heat as a result of this interview,” she continued.
Meghan alleged bigotry from inside the royal family during her Oprah interview, saying that an unidentified senior royal questioned how dark her then-unborn son Archie’s skin would be. Harry would not name the member of his family, only stating that it was not Queen Elizabeth or Prince Philip. Meghan has also said that she feels so alone as a royal that she contemplated suicide during her pregnancy.
In a brief statement released via Buckingham Palace, the Queen replied.
According to Fox News, the royal statement read, “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how difficult the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.” “The issues posed, particularly the one of race, are alarming. Although some recollections may differ, they are all taken seriously and will be discussed privately by the family. Harry, Meghan, and Archie will all be cherished members of the royal family.”
