The royal family is engulfed in a scandal, the likes of which they haven’t had to deal with since the divorce of Charles and Diana. A quick recap: After announcing their departure from their roles as “working royals” in January 2020, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a dramatic return to America, settling near Los Angeles with their son, Archie.
Gayle King claims Meghan Markle has “plenty of receipts” to back up the allegations of racism she made during her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, according to a report.
During the sit-down, the biracial Duchess of Sussex choked back tears when she told Winfrey that she “didn’t want to live anymore” while pregnant with Archie.
Markle said she was told her son wouldn’t have a royal title and wouldn’t be entitled to security and described being told of concerns over “how dark his skin might be when he was born.”
Commenting on Meghan’s racism allegations, Oprah’s bestie, King said: “I think Meghan has plenty of receipts, meaning she’s been keeping track of things,” The Sun reported.
The “CBS This Morning” co-host’s comments echoed those from Markle’s pal Janina Gavankar, who in an appearance on the UK’s “This Morning” countered Buckingham Palace’s statement about “varying recollections” of events.
“Though their recollections may vary, ours don’t,” Gavankar, 40, said.
“After reading this short statement that came out from Buckingham Palace today, I felt two things,” she said. “One side, I thought: I am so thankful that they are finally acknowledging the experience.
“But on the other side, I am well aware that the family and the staff were well aware of the extent of it, and though their recollections may vary, ours don’t, because we lived through it with them.
