Announcing her separation from the monarch, she said: “What I can confirm is that the Ooni and I are no more. I inhale love & exhale gratitude. We have got to stop this culture of shaming and vilifying women with false stories of infidelity & nefarious behavior.
“There is absolutely no truth to the media circulated lies of infidelity and infertility- on my end.
“The throne is sacred and the attempts to tarnish the name of a Queen, in defense or on behalf of a silent King makes all involved look terrible. Remain dignified in all you do. It’s not the end of the world, but the start of a new chapter and you must turn the page with grace. The world is watching.”
