The British royal family has faced quite a blow after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle not only parted ways, but accused the Firm of discrimination as well as racism.

Former Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott—who is the first Black member of Parliament—said that owing to the fiasco unleashed by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the royal family could come to an end.

She said this in a new Vanity Fair cover story, adding that the monarchy “as we know it will last as long as the queen is alive.”

“I think there will be a big public debate … and I think what the royal family and their advisers did with Meghan will be part of the argument for change,” she said.

Abbott went on to say that the discourse could even go as far as reach the Parliament floor with a “clamor to look at the current arrangement and maybe move to a more Scandinavian monarchy, where you don’t have all the pomp and ceremony.”

Meghan, 39, told Oprah Winfrey last month in an explosive interview with her husband Prince Harry by her side, that some members of the royal family had “raised concerns” about the colour of their then-unborn son Archie’s skin.

She also claimed that she had contemplated ending her life during her time as a royal and was also denied professional help for her mental health by Palace officials.
