Beyoncé is the latest celebrity to show her support for Meghan Markle, following her in-depth interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The TV event saw Markle and Prince Harry give their first sit-down interview since stepping back as senior members of the royal family.
During the interview, they spoke at length about their struggles with mental health, racism and their strained relationship with the palace.
In a series of stunning revelations, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex accused the palace of fostering an atmosphere of hostility that reached a point where Markle contemplated taking her own life.
“I was ashamed to say it at the time... I just didn’t want to be alive any more. And that was a very real and clear and frightening and constant thought,” she said.
Markle also claimed that a member of the royal family relayed concerns regarding “how dark” the skin of their son Archie would be when he is born.
Harry spoke about how he felt really “let down” by Prince Charles as he longed for the public support of his family, particularly during a time when his wife faced scrutiny from the British tabloids.
In a lighthearted moment, the couple revealed that they are due to welcome a baby girl sometime later in the summer.
Showing her support for Markle in a front page post on her website, Beyoncé shared a picture of their meeting at the 2019 European premiere of The Lion King.
“Thank you Meghan for your courage and leadership,” the singer wrote. “We are all strengthened and inspired by you.”
Buckingham Palace issued a statement in response to the interview this week, saying: “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. Whilst 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.”
Harry described feeling "really let down" by his father Prince Charles, who had stopped taking his phone calls for a time. Both Charles — the queen's heir — and Harry's elder brother William were "trapped" by the conventions of the monarchy, he said.
Harry said, “There were no distractions, and that was great, it was an amazing thing. We went from zero to 60 in the first two months.”
"I’m just really relieved and happy to be sitting here talking to you with my wife by my side, because I can’t begin to imagine what it must have been like for her going through this process by herself all those years ago,” Harry said, adding, "because it’s been unbelievably tough for the two of us.”
TV presenter Gayle King revealed that Prince Harry has spoken to William and Charles, but ‘conversations were not productive.’ The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are still very upset with ‘false stories’ that are ‘disparaging’ against Meghan, she said.
