Former President Donald Trump’s adviser Stephen Miller weighed in on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s blockbuster interview with Oprah Winfrey.  

‘Here’s the question Oprah should have asked Harry & Meghan: isn’t the whole point of the Royal Family that it’s *not* about you but about your country? It’s about service to the UK and the Commonwealth,’ Miller tweeted Monday. 

Miller added that he had met members of the royal family during Trump’s head of state visit to the United Kingdom in June 2019.  

‘They were unfailingly gracious & deeply committed to preserving the traditions and heritage of the UK,’ Miller recalled.

Miller’s dig at the royal couple was in line with comments Trump made about Markle in September, after she and Prince Harry made the unprecedented decision to comment on the upcoming U.S. election, interpreted by many as an endorsement of now President Joe Biden.     

‘I’m not a fan of hers,’ Trump said of Markle. 

‘I would say this – and she has probably has heard that – I wish a lot of luck to Harry because he’s going to need it,’ the then-president added.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki had a much kinder assessment of the Winfrey interview praising the ‘courage’ of Meghan and Harry.    

‘For anyone to come forward and speak about their own struggles with mental health and tell their own personal story, that takes courage and that’s certainly something the president believes,’ Psaki replied when asked if President Joe Biden had any reaction to the interview. 

Psaki also pointed out that both Meghan and Harry are private citizens. 

‘We aren’t going to provide additional commentary from here on behalf of the president or others given these are private citizens, sharing their own story and their own struggles,’ the press secretary said. 

‘And let me just reiterate that we have a strong and abiding relationship with the British people and a special partnership with the government of the United Kingdom on a range of issues and that will continue,’ she added.

Both the president and first lady have known Prince Harry for years and have been supportive of his Invictus Games for wounded warriors. 

Psaki didn’t get into detail but said that Biden has ‘talked about the importance of investing in a lot of these areas that they are committed in.’ 

Psaki was specifically asked about the racism that the royal couple talked about experiencing, though she addressed Meghan and Harry opening up about mental health struggles instead. 

In the interview, Markle describes having thoughts of suicide when she was pregnant with the couple’s son, Archie. 

‘I just didn’t want to be alive anymore,’ she told Winfrey. ‘And that was a very clear and real and frightening constant thought.’   

Markle also said she tried to seek help including inpatient care, but was rebuffed by a senior royal because ‘wouldn’t be good for the institution.’ 

The Duchess of Sussex also revealed that someone in the royal orbit had a conversation with Harry about the color of Archie’s skin before he was born.  

There were ‘concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he is born,’ Markle told Winfrey. 

Winfrey was floored, uttering, ‘What?’ 

‘There are several conversations,’ Markle continued. ‘Potentially and what that would mean or look like.’
