MOSCOW, 8 March – RIA Novosti. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Maria Zakharova responded to an interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. She believes that the British establishment is in collusion with the press, and the press manipulates public opinion.
In an interview shown in the US on Sunday night, the retired Duke and Duchess of Sussex made some sensational statements that hurt the royal family and the image of the British monarchy. In particular, Megan said that one of her husband's relatives expressed concerns about the skin color of her unborn child and that she herself had suicidal thoughts and was denied help. She also said that she was offended by the wife of Harry's older brother, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate. Prince Harry, in turn, told how his father, Prince of Wales Charles, did not answer his calls, refusing to discuss his son's problems.
On her Facebook account, Zakharova indicated that she watched the interview.
“You know, a lot fell into place in the understanding of what democracy is with the specifics of the British monarchy,” she added.
Zakharova wrote that from Oprah Unfrey's conversation with the Duke and Duchess, it follows that “even the most protected representatives of the British elite do not feel safe if they are disagreeable to the ruling elite.”
“Secondly, the British establishment is in collusion with the press, and the press manipulates public opinion, forming an appropriate perception, which may in principle not coincide with reality, even contradict it,” Zakharova wrote.
“I would like to add that, in fact, the materials of the British Foreign Office, which have recently appeared on the Internet, testify to the same,” she said. According to Zakharova, “any topic, as the Sussexskys confirmed, the British media industry, at the suggestion of the authorities, can distort exactly the opposite.” “We have gone through this more than once on the examples of the stories of Litvinenko, Berezovsky, Skripals, White Helmets, etc.,” she said.
A spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry wrote that “racism has not been eradicated, and its victims are being persecuted.”
“This is not a scandal. This is a collapse of the scenery,” she concluded.
