Meghan hits out at UK media over King Charles letters

LONDON, April 22 (Reuters) – Meghan, the wife of Britain’s Prince Harry, criticized the British media on Saturday over reports she exchanged letters with Charles over his decision not to attend his coronation, amid his latest spat with journalists.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Meghan has written to the current monarch to express her concerns about unconscious bias in the royal family. The letter came after the family expressed concern about how dark their son’s skin would be in a 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey.

It said the Duchess of Sussex did not feel she had received a satisfactory response to her concerns.

“The Duchess of Sussex is currently going about her life and is not thinking about the letters from two years ago that relate to conversations four years ago,” Meghan’s spokesman said.

“Any suggestion otherwise is false and frankly ridiculous. We encourage the tabloid media and various state correspondents to stop the tiresome circus that they alone are creating.”

Prince Harry will attend next month’s coronation without Meghan, who will be in California with the couple’s two children. Their eldest, Archie, turned four on the same day.

Harry and Meghan stepped down from royal duties in March 2020, saying they wanted to make a new life in America away from media harassment.
