Ann Widdecombe called Prince Harry’s suggestion of racism throughout British institutions “absolute rot”. The former Brexit Party MEP hit out at the Harry and Meghan’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey. Speaking to talkRADIO, Ms Widdecombe said the interview was one-sided and compared it to a “court case where the jury only heard the prosecution and cross-examination”.
TalkRADIO host Patrick Christys said: “There has been an accusation from Harry and Meghan this week that the British instituion is racist.
“Not just the Royal Family. You’ve been surrounded by British institutions for a long time – is it racist?”
Ms Widdecombe fired back: “No, that is absolute rot. If anything it goes entirely the other way. I do not think it is racist.
“On the Meghan and Harry interview, can you imagine a court case where the jury only heard the prosecution in which there was no cross-examination and the jury was then invited to convict.”

She added: “That is what has happened with this interview.”
Mr Christys followed up: “It’s true. It seems that we have just got to believe Harry, there’s no choice.”
This comes as the aftermath of the Oprah Winfrey interview continues to rock the Royal Family.
Harry and Meghan made a series of explosive claims in the tell-all chat, including allegations of racism against the Royal Family.
