If you’ve been wondering what it would take to officially tip Piers Morgan over the edge, it may have come as a shock to find out it was (Prince?) Harry and Meghan Markle’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey. Two hours of confusing revelations that stunned audiences and had this writer’s partner attempting to explain the relevance of the Royal Family in explicitly too-much detail left us with more questions than answers. But above all else, we scored out on meme-content. Flooding our feeds was a host of great Royal Family memes and videos, loaded with spite, negativity and more than a few bad British accents. Lovely jubbly.

The Birth of Harry and Meghan Memes
The whole ordeal is quite a shambles, but it’s worth reminding everyone why we’re in this mess and why we should care. The Oprah interview marked the couple’s first since leaving the Royal Family, opening Meghan and Harry up to questioning on the inner sanctum of the British monarchy.
The tell-all interview provided some explosive insights, with one revelation suggesting that members of the family were concerned over how “dark” Archie’s skin would be. Make no mistake, the allegations of racial discrimination are troubling and demand recognition, but that wasn’t all. We also heard from Meghan about her struggles with mental health, public abuse and the media bias that had pitted her against fellow Royal ring-in Kate. After an extended period that saw a lot of confused nodding from Oprah, Harry joined the two for the remainder of the interview.
While a lot of the Hary and Meghan interview confirmed our suspicions, that the two are exceedingly wealthy, Archie is well-looked after and their dogs are happy, there were some surprising announcements. Namely, that Meghan had never heard of the Royal Family before meeting Harry and that the Queen was never blind-sighted by the pair’s decision to exit the family. Instead, it was more that the Royal Family was simply unable to support them in their ongoing endeavours.
In the hours that passed, several media organisations suggested the blockbuster interview could spell the end of the monarchy, with reporters waiting on a response from the Queen. On Wednesday, she delivered.
“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately,” the Queen said. “Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”
Spill that tea, Liz.
