Republic is an organisation that campaigns for the monarchy to be abolished and for the Queen to be replaced by a democratic, elected head of state. Graham Smith told Express.co.uk that the Royal Family owed the British public a more detailed response to Meghan Markle’s claims instead of the limited statement the Palace released.

Mr Smith said: “I think the response from the Palace was contemptuous.

“It is a public institution, they are on the public payroll, they do actually owe us an explanation for what they do and how they behave.

“To invite people to doubt Meghan’s version of events and say they are going to deal with it internally shows complete contempt for the British public.”

The Palace’s statement read: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.

“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.

“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members.”

In March 2021, a poll found that the British public did not support Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to do a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During his HeirPod podcast, Omid Scobie analysed the findings of YouGov polls in the UK and US following the airing of the Oprah Winfrey interview.

The Finding Freedom biographer stated that the results of the UK poll mirrored the public push back against some of the claims made by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry against the Royal Family.

Mr Scobie said: “We certainly saw with a YouGov direct poll with 2000-3000 adults, they found that 40 percent of Americans believed it was appropriate to take part in the interview and be that candid.

“The remaining figure was the majority of people saying I don’t care and then others saying it was inappropriate.

“This is very different from the UK where 47 percent of those polled said that it was inappropriate for the couple to share their story despite what had come out from the interview.

“I guess this kind of mirrors the public push back we have seen against what are some very big claims against the Royal Family.

“Many people seemingly want to bury their heads in the sand and hope that it goes away.

“I imagine that certain family members are in the same position as that.”
