Meghan Markle’s Misstep Infuriates Opera Star Danielle de Niese

Meghan Markle’s racism claims are in the news again.

The 41-year-old American actress-turned-Duchess infamously accused the British royal family and press of being racist in her interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021. Now, opera star Danielle de Niese, who happens to have some things in common with her, is weighing in with her opinions.

De Niese is ‘Opera Royalty’

Like Markle, de Niese is a mixed-race woman who married into “royalty” – opera royalty, that is. The 43-year-old lyric soprano is the wife of Gus Christie, who is the white, upper-crust Executive Chairman of Glyndebourne Festival Opera.
