Prince Harry and Meghan: We must acknowledge 'uncomfortable' past of the Commonwealth

Prince Harry Meghan Markle are still living off of Prince Charles’s monetary support

The documents were prepared as part of Meghan's lawsuit against the publisher of the Mail on Sunday newspaper and MailOnline website over articles that reproduced parts of a letter the duchess wrote to her father a few months after her 2018 marriage to Prince Harry. "It's not going to be easy, and in some cases, it's not going to be comfortable, but it needs to be done because -guess what Everybody benefits".

And during the call, Harry said all Commonwealth nations must accept their past mistakes in order to learn from them. Britain's colonisation of those countries has been reassessed in the wake of recent global anti-racism protests.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shed light on how "the uncomfortable" past of the Commonwealth should be acknowledged, as reported by E!News. "It puts us all on the same footing, which is a fundamental human right and that's what we're talking about here".

Prince Harry and Meghan kept their roles with the trust after stepping down as senior working royals earlier this year.


"However, once you start to realise that there is that bias there, then you need to acknowledge it, you need to do the work to be able to become more aware".

Meghan added that It's not just in the big moments, it's in the quiet moments where racism and unconscious bias lies and thrives. "And it's those nuances that I think makes it confusing for a lot of people to understand the role that they play in that either passively or actively, but I think even more so passively". "This process is painful and it has been for a long time, but through that enormous pain, what we can have tremendous faith in is knowing that there will be growth and that's what we're seeing happen every single day as all of you are out there campaigning, fighting the right fight, being on the right side of history and ensuring that we can get closer to seeing this truly as our past and not something that we have to revisit again and again and again". A similar reassessment has taken place in other historical imperialist powers, including Belgium.

Harry addressed the issue of unconscious bias, sharing his own perspective.

A previously released statement about the Queen's Commonwealth Trust, which is headed by Harry and Meghan, explained the work it does to support the Black Lives Matter movement. "Maybe I didn't do the right thing there", the duchess said. Let us know (below) in the comments!
