Queen

Buckingham Palace has said it is “saddened” by claims made by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during their bombshell interview with Oprah, saying the issues raised around race are “concerning” and “will be addressed by the family privately”.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the palace said it is “saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan”.

It added: “The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.

“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”

After several weeks of headlines and much anticipation, the interview finally aired in the US on Sunday night and provided a number of revelations more explosive than anyone could have imagined.

A little more than a year after they decided they would step back from the royal family, the couple sat down with Oprah to put their side of the story forward and reveal what was really going on behind closed palace doors.

Meghan detailed a series of allegations of racism by members of the Royal Family, including “concerns and conversations” about how dark the colour of Archie’s skin might be when he was born.

Meghan refused to name the member of the royal family but said that conversations were relayed to Prince Harry.

“I think that would be very damaging to them,” she said.

It was later reported the individual was not the Queen or Prince Philip but their identity remains otherwise unknown.

Meghan told Oprah that she had contemplated suicide at the height of her crisis in the monarchy.

“You were having suicidal thoughts?” Oprah asked during the two-hour interview.

“Yes. It was very clear and very scary,” Meghan said. “I just didn’t see a solution.”  

Shadow education secretary Kate Green said on Monday the allegations were “really distressing”.

Speaking to Sky News, she added: “And if there are allegations of racism, I would expect them to be treated by the palace with the utmost seriousness and fully investigated.”

A former YouTube content moderator is suing the Google-owned company for failing to properly protect her and her co-workers from the mental harms caused by reviewing hours and hours of graphic footage every day.

The proposed class-action lawsuit against YouTube is being brought by the Joseph Saveri Law Firm, which previously sued Facebook for failing to safeguard the mental health of its own content moderators. That earlier suit resulted in Facebook paying a $52 million settlement to moderators who developed PTSD as a result of their work for the company.

The lawsuit, which was first reported by CNET, says YouTube consistently failed to follow its own...

Nokia is working on improving 5G technology and connectivity in Europe.

The company has opened a specialised 5G Lab at its office in Espoo, Finland, on the lines of the 5G Future X Lab at its Nokia Bell headquarters in New Jersey.

Nokia has been working on technology for a long time but has recently expedited its efforts.

The company is currently testing an end-to-end 5G (Provider-consumer) network and how it will function in the real world.

According to Nokia Bell Labs president and chief technical officer, Marcus Weldon, customers can use the lab to see how a dynamically reconfigurable network like 5G works and how it improves performance in terms of latency, capacity, reliability and security.

According to Weldon, it will also reduce the cost of ownership of 5G hardware.

Almost two dozen women say they were tricked into appearing in pornographic videos on the prominent porn site GirlsDoPorn.

The trial began in mid-August and is expected to run for more than a month.

Instead, they were contacted by men who encouraged them to appear in a pornographic video.

Most of the women were reluctant, but they were offered as much as $5,000 for 30 minutes on camera—an offer that some women found hard to refuse.

After they had traveled to San Diego, the women say they were pressured to sign lengthy contracts before they had time to read them carefully.

Women were told they would receive less than the agreed-upon price—in one case, $3,000 rather than $5,000—because the men were "disappointed" with their appearance.
