Also available on the NBC app

Meghan Markle has spoken out about George Floyd’s death during a commencement address for her former high school. Seeming to choke back tears, Meghan recorded a video statement to address Immaculate Heart High School’s class of 2020. The 38-year-old explained that she had been unsure of what to tell the class, but realized “the only wrong thing to say is nothing.” Meghan’s speech came after days of protests were sparked by Floyd’s death, who died while in police custody on Memorial Day.
