Anger over Meghan Markle’s claims that she was mistreated by the British royal family has spilled over into Twitter, with many social media users calling for the abolition of the monarchy.
In an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired on CBS on Sunday night, the American wife of Prince Harry fired off a list of incendiary accusations against the Crown, including that she was denied mental health treatment when she suffered from suicidal thoughts. Markle, who is biracial, also claimed there were concerns within the royal family about how “dark” her son’s skin would be. She said that the boy, Archie, was denied a title and a security detail.
The interview spawned a number of popular hashtags on Twitter, including #MeghanAndHarry and #OprahMeghanHarry. But, as outrage over Meghan’s incendiary tales grew, #AbolishTheMonarchy started to trend in the UK, with social media users calling for an all-out end to the British royal family.
