Serena Williams is not left out among celebrities lashing out at the British royal family for allegedly treating Meghan Markel and Prince Harry so badly while they were still working as senior royals.
The tennis star took to her official Instagram account on Sunday, March 7, possibly after watching the highly anticipated interview which aired on CBS with Oprah Winfrey as host to support Markle.
The Duchess of Sussex revealed that she’s been a victim of racism on the part of the British royal family while revealing that her son Archie was denied the ‘prince’ title before his birth because of his possible skin colour.
“I know firsthand the sexism and racism that institutions and the media use to slander women and people of colour in order to minimize, break and demonize us,” Serena Williams a longtime friend of Meghan said.
Speaking about Meghan’s yet-to-be-born daughter, Selena said, “I want Meghan’s daughter, my daughter and your daughter to live in a society motivated by respect”.

Selena who’s also a mother after listening to Meghan and Harry’s touching story that almost led to the former actress taking her own life said, “mental health and the consequences of oppression systemic and victimization which are devastating isolating and too often fatal. Keep in your memory that the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control.”
Serena Williams by her post joins uncountable celebrities across the globe who have poured out their disappointment at Buckingham palace after watching the Oprah interview, with Poet Amanda Gorman, who stirred a sensation when Joe Biden was inaugurated in January with her poem “The Hill We Climb”, writing on Twitter, “Meghan’s strength will certainly redefine the concept of family.”
Unclear if this will change the Royal family, but Meghan’s strength will certainly redefine family everywhere. Think of the women who will be inspired to stand up for their lives, the partners who will be kinder & more courageous than the kin they were born into.
