People on the platform didn't hesitate to call out Spencer's comment, Piers' reaction, and the media, insisting that they let Markle get on with her life.
One person wrote: "But what's your obsession with her, why not let her be?"
"Like how the media overlook the fact that Harry has always held his disdain for them. There's no doubt racism or concerns about race have played a part in her relationship with the royal family. Why can't the press - including your old man - just let it go and let them crack on?" another added.
A third wrote: "Come on, Piers, you know how the tabloid media works. Stop gaslighting. Smear stories have been planted for years, and you're the worst of the lot."
In March 2021, Markle and Prince Harry did a bombshell interview with Orpah Winfrey, where the two discussed the tensions they had with the Windsors, racism, and the pressures of royal life.
Fast-forward to September, Markle spoke with Mariah Carey for the second episode of her Spotify podcast Archetypes as both spoke about their mixed heritage.
Markle, whose estranged father, Thomas, is white and her mother, Doria, is Black, said that when Carey first came onto the music scene, she noted that it was someone who was similar to her.
"Because we're light-skinned, you are not treated as a Black woman. You're not treated as a white woman. You sort of fit in between," she told Carey before explaining that the focus turned to her race when she started to date Prince Harry.
