Steering clear of royal accusations, UK’s Johnson praises the Queen

LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Boris Johnson expressed his admiration for the Queen and the unifying role she plays in Britain and beyond on Monday, trying to steer clear of accusations of racism made by Meghan Markle against the royal family.

Markle, the wife of Prince Harry, accused the royal family of raising concerns about how dark their son’s skin might be and pushing her to the brink of suicide in a tell-all television interview that sent shockwaves through the monarchy.

Prime ministers rarely comment on royal matters and on Monday, after a blizzard of coverage of the interview, Johnson said he would not be drawn on the racism accusations, speaking only of his admiration of Queen Elizabeth.

“I’ve always had the highest admiration for the Queen and the unifying role that she plays in our country and across the Commonwealth,” he told a news conference when asked about the allegations.

“As for the rest, all other matters to do with the royal family, I’ve spent a long time now not commenting on royal family matters and I don’t intend to depart from that today.”

The interview, which has posed questions about the issue of racism in Britain, was aired in the early hours of Monday, shortly after Queen Elizabeth celebrated the unity of the Commonwealth during the coronavirus crisis.

In a speech to mark Commonwealth Day, dedicated to the countries mainly from the former British empire that maintain links with Britain, the Queen welcomed the “deeper appreciation of the mutual support and spiritual sustenance we enjoy being connected to others” during the coronavirus pandemic.
