The Duchess of Sussex has claimed Buckingham Palace shouldn’t be surprised at her speaking out against them ”if” it has taken what she called an ”active role” in the promotion of false information about herself and the Duke of Sussex.
In the latest clip of the couple’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, The Duchess makes reference to ”The Firm”, the name used widely around the world to describe the Royal Family.
In the trailer, Oprah Winfrey asks Meghan how she feels ”about the Palace hearing you speak your truth today?”. The Duchess of Sussex replies ”I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.”
Set against dramatic music and using the famous photo of Harry and Meghan under an umbrella at one of their last public engagements in the UK ahead of stepping back as senior royals in 2020, the clip continues with Meghan saying ”and if that comes with risk of losing things, I mean, there’s a lot that’s been lost already.”
The use of the phrase ”The Firm” has led to some debate. The name was reportedly coined by The Duke of Edinburgh when he married into the House of Windsor and is often used to describe the Royal Family. It’s not clear from the context of the clip whether the Duchess of Sussex is referring to the family or to the wider court surrounding it.
