After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s tell-all interview with Oprah aired on Monday night in the U.K., it seems many are eagerly awaiting the royal family’s response.

While the household is yet to issue an official statement, BBC News reports that the royals remain in “crisis meetings” following several revelations made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Among those claims, the couple suggested the royal household had “conversations” about the colour of their child’s skin before he was born.

They also said Prince Harry was cut off financially and revealed the royals refused to support Meghan when she was struggling with her mental health.

In addition, Meghan set the record straight about an alleged feud with Kate Middleton, whereby she says Middleton made her cry days before her wedding.

In response, “crisis meetings” are thought to be taking place now, involving senior, working members of the royal household.

The BBC’s royal correspondent, Daniela Relph, suggests Buckingham Palace "will not want to feel rushed into saying something" following the interview which aired in Britain on Monday night.

Over 11 million people in the U.K. were believed to have tuned in to the interview, with multiple celebrities and high-profile politicians speaking out following the interview's airing.

A day earlier, the show was watched by about 17 million people in the United States.
