A new book points to Prince Charles as the author of the racist comment about the skin color of little Archie denounced by Meghan Markle in the controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey.
According to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, when Meghan was pregnant, at Buckingham Palace there was a concern about the skin color little Archie would have. This revelation was a blow to the British monarchy. It should be noted that they did not say who had made the racist comment, although they clarified that Queen Elizabeth II had not left.
Now, months after the explosive interview of the Sussexes to Oprah, the controversy has returned to shine in Christopher Andersen’s book ‘Brothers and Wives: Inside the private lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan’, the author says that it was Prince Charles who made the racist comments. Andersen relies on close sources to make this claim and even says that the comment was made during the morning in which the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their engagement.
According to the book, Prince Charles reportedly asked Camilla of Cornwall what he thought the couple’s children would be like, to which she replied: “Gorgeous, of course.” Then, the heir to the throne lowered his voice and asked again: “I mean what you think your children’s complexion will be like.”
Following these harsh accusations, Prince Charles has defended himself. According to a spokesman for Clarence House to the newspaper ‘The Post’ this fact is “fiction” and, therefore, “does not deserve further comment”.
