Meghan, the wife of Britain’s Prince Harry, criticized the British media on Saturday over reports that letters exchanged with King Charles played a role in her decision not to attend his coronation, her latest confrontation with the press.
The Daily Telegraph reported that Meghan had written to the now king to express her concerns about unconscious bias in the royal family. It said the letter was sent in response to her comments in a 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey that the family had expressed concern about how dark her son’s skin would be.
It reported that the Duchess of Sussex did not feel she had received a satisfactory answer to her concerns.
“The Duchess of Sussex is living her life in the present and is not thinking about correspondence from two years ago that is linked to conversations from four years ago,” a spokesperson for Meghan said.
“Any other suggestion is false and downright ridiculous. We encourage the tabloid media and various royal correspondents to put an end to the exhausting circus they alone are creating.”
Prince Harry will attend the coronation next month without Meghan, who will remain in California with the couple’s two young children. Their eldest, Archie, turns four on the same day.
Harry and Meghan stepped down from royal duties in March 2020, saying they wanted to build a new life in the United States away from media harassment.
