Ashley Banjo ‘not surprised’ by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Oprah Winfrey interview

Ashley Banjo has opened up about not being shocked by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Oprah Winfrey interview after speaking to them at length about it.

The Diversity star has grown close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, with the pair supporting him for his Black Lives Matter performance, which recently won a Bafta.

They’re just normal people,’ he said of Harry and Meghan. ‘They’re living a slightly different life to us, but they are just people.

‘You look at their actions to look after one another and protect their little family and I understand it 100%.’

Ashley added on Lorraine: ‘There were a lot of things people were shocked at in their interview with Oprah. I think I was less shocked because of our conversation, we had a really long chat and it was really eye-opening for me.

‘I’m genuinely inspired by both of them, the way they’ve handled themselves.’

During their bombshell interview, Meghan and Harry lifted the lid on life inside the Royal family.

Meghan revealed she had suicidal thoughts as she struggled with life in the spotlight.

She also alleged an unnamed member of the family raised ‘concerns and conversations’ about how dark her son Archie’s skin might be when was born.

The couple have now honoured the Queen and Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, by naming their newborn daughter, Lilibet Diana, after them.

Diversity star Ashley has also revealed that he’s had conversations about working with Harry and Meghan on a new project – but he’s keeping tight-lipped for now.

Speaking on FUBAR Radio’s Access All Areas, Ashley said: ‘I think the paths might cross at some point, I’m not sure how.

‘There’s been a couple of conversations, but, yeah. I’m hoping that our paths cross. That’s all I’m going to say. Keep it under wraps as they say.’

Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV.
