If Twittersphere can be viewed as a microcosm of global reaction to Oprah's explosive interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, then the Royal Family is facing a devastating crisis.

Even before the two-hour special aired on ITV on Monday night, #AbolishTheMonarchy was trending on the social media platform, as one sensational claim after another emerged from across the pond, where it was broadcast on CBS on Sunday.

Last night it was the turn of viewers in the UK to watch the bombshell interview. The most damning allegation levelled at an unnamed member of the Royal Family was one of racism. A speechless Oprah looked on in shock, as Meghan claimed there had been 'concerns and conversations about how dark' the couple's unborn child would be.
