The Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat down with the TV queen where they didn’t hold back. Meghan claimed to have experienced racism from within the Palace, recalling a member of the Royal Family airing concerns about how dark her son Archie’s skin would be.
Oprah has since confirmed the family member in question was not the Queen or Prince Philip.
While Piers Morgan has once again torn the couple apart, even suggesting Meghan lied about feeling suicidal, Naga praised Harry and Meghan for refusing to be silenced.
‘I think if people feel they need to speak up about their situation, all power to them and I think the scrutiny around them, you have to just, in any of those situations, you have to just be aware of what’s important,’ she said on today’s Morning Live with Kym Marsh and Gethin Jones.
‘It is your family and obviously what they have made clear is they want to protect their family and protect their mental health and wellbeing.

Tonight, Naga explores racism further in the Panorama documentary, Let’s Talk About Race.
The presenter stressed that while conversations about race may be ‘uncomfortable’ they’re vital.

Naga spoke to two Black fathers for the film, who had to tell their sons: ‘You need to be small, you need to be less loud, you need to think about how you’re perceived.
‘Don’t walk around in a group because you will be seen as a gang, don’t give the police any excuse to stop and search you, don’t bring your true self to work because you will always be seen as loud and as aggressive.’
‘Having that conversation with a child when they are nine, can you imagine that?’ she gasped.
‘Telling you child not to bring their true self to school? That shocked me.’
Let’s Talk About Race airs tonight at 7pm on BBC One.
