The tweet read, “I am sickened by the racist abuse aimed at England players after last night’s match. It is totally unacceptable that players have to endure this abhorrent behaviour. It must stop now and all those involved should be held accountable. W.”

During the tell-all, Meghan revealed that a member of the royal family expressed concern over the potential color of Archie‘s skin. It was later revealed which two royals did not make that comment.
