British Prime Minister Boris Johnson did not watch a televised interview with Prince Harry and Meghan broadcast overnight, but any matters arising from the interview are a matter for the palace, Johnson's spokesperson said on Monday.

"Obviously it is a matter for the palace," the spokesperson said when asked about Meghan's comments that someone in Britain's royal family raised concerns about how dark the couple's son's skin might be.
