Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with American TV presenter Oprah Winfrey has become one of the most resonant in recent years. The former first lady of the United States, 57-year-old Michelle Obama, has now commented on it.
Barack Obama’s wife hopes that Meghan and Harry “will be able to find clarity, love and resolve the situation” after the interview. Simultaneously, Michelle urged the couple to forgive the royal family after statements of racism and bullying.
Recall that in an interview with Winfrey, Megan admitted that some members of the royal family expressed concern about how dark her son Archie’s skin would be (at that time, Megan was still pregnant). Markle refused to name names, however. Later, Oprah herself clarified that this was not about Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip.
When I think about what they are going through, I remember the importance of family and pray that there will be forgiveness at some point, that there will be clarity, love, that everything will be resolved. Because there is nothing more important than family, Obama said in an interview with Access Hollywood.
Continuing the topic, the former first lady spoke a little about her family and Barack Obama’s relationship with his daughters Malia and Sasha.
Of course, he loves his daughters with all his heart. He wants only the best for them. But more importantly, he knows how smart and capable they are and treats them as equals. He encourages them in everything they do. And that’s all you want from dad, – said Michelle.
We will remind that Obama previously also supported Megan. In 2019, she called her a “thoughtful leader” and praised her for her charitable initiatives. Then Megan met with representatives of the Obama Foundation.
Thank you to my friend, Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Sussex, a thoughtful leader who breaks stereotypes and makes our world a better place. Meeting with representatives of our foundation or helping girls from all over the world to get the education they deserve, she is a source of inspiration for many, Michelle wrote then.
