The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has also lent her voice to the killing of George Floyd in the US in a new video shared by The Sun.
She said that she initially feared that if she spoke, people would pick her words apart. The Duchess added that she then realised that “the only wrong thing to say is to say nothing”
“…And I wasn’t sure what I could say to you. I wanted to say the right thing and I was really nervous that I wouldn’t or that it would get picked apart,” she said during the video message.
In a very emotional moment, she listed the names of those who had also suffered the same fate in the hands of policemen in America.
“George Floyd’s life mattered and Breonna Taylor’s life mattered. And Philando Castile’s life mattered and Tamir Rice’s life mattered,” she said.
Markle also said that everyone who had died that way “whose names we know” and “do not know” also mattered.
