Former US First Lady Michelle Obama has said it “wasn’t a complete surprise” to hear the Duchess of Sussex talk about race in a recent TV interview.
Mrs Obama spoke to NBC’s Today show about Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Meghan and Harry had opened up about a range of personal topics, including racism and mental health.
Meghan said Harry had been asked by an unnamed royal family member “how dark” their son Archie’s skin might be.
Buckingham Palace said the race issues raised by Meghan, 39, and Harry, 36, were “concerning”, and would be “taken very seriously” and dealt with privately.
In her interview with NBC, Mrs Obama was asked what had gone through her mind while watching Meghan’s candid conversation with Oprah.
