Has Meghan Markle Been Contacted By the Royal Family Yet? Here's What We Know

This month has been quite a whirlwind for the royal family. After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's tell-all conversation with Oprah Winfrey, the palace moved swiftly in giving their public statement. Plus, the issues that were raised have already prompted Harry to have a talk with Prince William and Prince Charles. But has anyone from the royal family reached out to Markle since the interview? Here's what we know.

On March 16, TV personality Gayle King announced that she checked in on Harry and Markle following their talk with Winfrey. While she confirmed that Harry has been communicating with his brother and father, she added that no one has reached out to Markle.

King said, "No one in the royal family has talked to Meghan yet, at this particular time, and I think it's frustrating for them to see that it's a racial conversation about the royal family when all they wanted all along was for the royals to intervene and tell the press to stop with the unfair, inaccurate, false stories that definitely have a racial slant."

She continued, "And until you can acknowledge that, I think it's going to be hard to move forward. But they both want to move forward with this and they both want healing in this family. At the end of the day, that is Harry's family."

In case you missed the interview, Markle revealed that she had mental health struggles and that her family was denied protection. Worse yet, Archie would not be given a royal title, and a family member raised questions about the color of Archie's skin before his birth. 

While discussing the interview, King also stated that Meghan has proof of all the claims she made. She said, "You know, she's really a very sweet, caring person. And as I say, Meghan has documents to back up everything that she said on Oprah's interview. Everything. The family has to acknowledge there are issues and no one is doing that."

She concluded, "They want a conversation."

Here's hoping that conversation happens sooner rather than later.
