The Royal Family has pushed forward with great initiatives over mental health, the need to be vaccinated and setting an example through lockdown but this could all be undone, following the allegations of racism within the institution. Not only will the allegations damage the Royal Family but it is a fight Meghan is set to win, Rhiannon Mills has claimed. The Sky News correspondent claimed the Royal Family is an important image for the country but indicated it may never recover to what it once was.
She wrote: “You just need to look at the last year to see how influential the Royal Family has been during the pandemic, setting the right example on everything from lockdown working to having the vaccination.
“What they stand for matters.
“These latest claims could potentially undermine work they have done in the diversity sphere or as cheerleaders promoting better mental health support.
“This is of course Harry and Meghan’s word against theirs, but this time it feels like a dignified silence from the rest of the Royal Family isn’t enough to shut this one down.”
During the bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan claimed she had suffered mental health issues, while one royal had also allegedly commented on Archie’s skin colour.
A statement from the Royal Family claimed the allegations of racism were a concern and would be addressed internally by the Palace.
The statement from the Palace also claimed Meghan, Harry and Archie would remain to be valued members of the Royal Family.
A former aide to the Palace and Tory MP, Mary MacLeod claimed the statement from Her Majesty had shown understanding for what Harry and Meghan had gone through.

Despite that, Meghan expressed how she had been left isolated within the Royal Family and tried reaching out to multiple sources for aid.
She said: “I remember this conversation like it was yesterday, because they said, my heart goes out to you because I see how bad it is, but there’s nothing we can do to protect you because you’re not a paid employee of the institution.
“This wasn’t a choice. This was emails and begging for help, saying very specifically I am concerned for my mental welfare.
“But nothing was ever done, so we had to find a solution.”
