The Kingdom Choir’s “Stand by Me” was one of the highlights of Meghan and Harry’s wedding on May 19, 2018. As accusations of racism hang over the British royal family, allegedly concerned about the color of their skin. Archie during the pregnancy of the Duchess, the choir wanted to defend Prince Charles after the corrosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Often presented as a personal choice of the 39-year-old former actress, the coming of this gospel troupe to Windsor for the Royal Wedding would actually be an idea of the Prince of Wales. “Apparently it was Charles’ choice, and apparently Charles recommended them to Harry and Meghan, which surprised me. It was a member of Charles’s staff who told me.”, said royalty journalist Emily Andrews at the time. Information today confirmed by Karen Gibson, the founder of the Kingdom Choir. The invitation, which she values “sincere”, would be welcome from Harry’s father on the sidelines of the wedding, she explained to TMZ. Prince Charles would have behaved like a gentleman and would be “put in four” to greet the troop after their performance. An attitude that she considers incompatible with the accusations of racism made by Meghan Markle. Prince Charles, he assured that the British royal family is “absolutely not racist”.
