Former US first lady Michelle Obama has said it “wasn’t a complete surprise” to hear the Duchess of Sussex’s claims of racism within the Royal Family.
Mrs Obama described the allegations Meghan made during her interview with Oprah Winfrey as “heartbreaking to hear”.
But speaking to NBC News, she said it wasn’t totally unexpected.
“I feel like that was heartbreaking to hear, that she felt like she was in her own family – her own family thought differently of her,” she said.
Describing public service as a “bright, sharp, hot spotlight”, she continued: “As I said before, race isn’t a new construct in this world for people of colour, and so it wasn’t a complete surprise to hear her feelings and to have them articulated.”
