Meghan Markle’s friend for 17 years Janina Gavankar on Wednesday, March 10th, appeared Wednesday to discuss Meghan and Prince Harry’s bombshell Oprah interview.
The actress said that she in fact watched the CBS special with the couple and adding that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are doing well. “We’re all happy that we are in a new era. You know, we get to tell the truth. Things are different now.”
She also added that “It is nice to see them feel free.”
Addressing the statement Buckingham Palace released on the interview, Gavankar, 40, said there are texts and emails to back up the couple’s claims of racism from the Royal Family.
Statement from the Palace had said the family was “saddened” to learn “the full extent” of the Sussexes’ struggles. It also added that “The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.”

Responding to the statement, Gavankar said;
“One side, I thought: I am so thankful that they are finally acknowledging the experience,” she said. “But on the other side, I know that the family and staff were well aware of the extent of it, and though their recollections may vary, ours don’t, because we lived through it with them. And there are many emails and texts to support that.”
She also addressed the claims that Meghan had bullied palace employees. “I have known [Meghan] for 17 years and I have seen the way she regards the people around her and the people she works with, and I can say she is not a bully,” she said. “But I can also say that I am personally glad people are doing their due diligence because I also know why someone had to leave, and it was for gross misconduct.”
She continued, ‘The truth will come out. There are plenty of emails and texts about that. I’m not going to get into the details of it. I don’t feel like that’s my place. I’m just happy that it’s actually being looked into because the truth really does set you free.”
