By Zoila Palma: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, and Prince Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey went viral last week.
Newsweek reports, however, that claims of racism in the royal family were not aired in 12 Caribbean nations where Queen Elizabeth II is sovereign.
During the interview, Prince Harry and Meghan shared that a member of the royal family (whose name wasn’t called) expressed concern about how dark their baby’s skin would be.
The revelations have triggered debates in Britain about racism.
Over 20 regional networks across 5 continents aired the interview but none in the Caribbean or Indian Ocean did.
Though it wasn’t aired, Belizeans had access to the interview via the internet, and portions were shared on TikTok.
Those countries include Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, The Bahamas, Belize, Grenada, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines as well as countries in the Indian Ocean include Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.
Of the 16 countries where the queen is sovereign, a license to broadcast the interview was bought by networks in Britain, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.
