The British star was asked by TMZ paparazzi if she thought the monarchy has learned anything since Meghan Markle shared her story, to which she replied, "For sure."

"I always say that you can only heal anything that's been exposed," she noted. "And as uncomfortable as it is, the conversation has to be had."

Added the singer, "I think from the top down and the bottom up everyone needs to talk about racism and how much it really still exists and it always has and there has to be a change, you know?"

"This England team deserve to be lauded as heroes, not racially abused on social media," the father-of-three continued. "Those responsible for this appalling abuse should be ashamed of themselves. W."
