Buckingham Palace has released a statement on behalf of the Queen in reaction to the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes' Oprah Winfrey interview.
It said: "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan."
The royal family said it would be addressing the accusations put forward by Prince Harry and Meghan that there were concerns around how dark their children's skin would be in private.
"The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately."
The Queen finished by saying she would always love her grandson, his wife and her great-grandson.
