Meghan Markle’s ex-boyfriend, Joshua Silverstein has come out to blast the Royal Family in a recent interview.

He recently hailed his ex for speaking out against racism in the Royal Family in her explosive interview with Oprah.

According to him, the Royal Family actually have a history of racism that goes back to the transatlantic slave trade, so he is not shocked that it has continued.

He added that the fact that Meghan spoke out despite knowing it could cause lot of tension between her and her family was amazing.

His words, “Whenever people of colour speak out about oppression and racism, generally the public, there’s a huge backlash – the fact that she got up and spoke about that knowing it could create a lot of tension between her and her family I thought was amazing on her part.”

“Change cannot take place unless people are willing to have a conversation.”

“I think the more and more people begin to become honest with their role in oppression and privilege then we can move forward.”

Markle was raised in Los Angeles, California. During her studies at Northwestern University, she began playing small roles in television series and films. From 2011 to 2017, she played Rachel Zane on the American legal drama Suits. She is an outspoken feminist and has addressed issues of gender inequality, and her lifestyle website The Tig featured a column profiling influential women. She represented international charity organizations and received recognition for her fashion and style, releasing a line of clothing in 2016.

Markle was married to actor and producer Trevor Engelson from 2011 until their divorce in 2013. In 2017, she announced her engagement to Prince Harry, grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, and she moved to London. She retired from acting, closed her related social media accounts, and started undertaking public engagements as part of the British royal family. She became Duchess of Sussex upon her marriage to Prince Harry in 2018. They have a son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor. In 2020, the couple announced their intention to step back as senior members of the royal family.

Markle is descended on her mother’s side from enslaved Africans, and on her father’s side from European settlers. She described her heritage in a 2015 essay for Elle magazine: “My dad is Caucasian and my mom is African American. I’m half black and half white …. While my mixed heritage may have created a grey area surrounding my self-identification, keeping me with a foot on both sides of the fence, I have come to embrace that. To say who I am, to share where I’m from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident mixed-race woman.”
