Royal Who Allegedly Questioned How Dark Meghan And Harry’s Son Would Be Is Disclosed
The Royal who allegedly questioned how dark Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's son Archie would be has finally been revealed.
During their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry claimed that an unnamed Royal had questioned how dark their son Archie would be before he was born. Now, a new book has revealed the alleged identity of this royal, and who it is may shock you.
Alleged ‘Racist’ Royal Is Revealed
In his book “Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan,” which comes out tomorrow, Christopher Andersen claims that it was Harry’s father Prince Charles who questioned how dark Archie’s complexion would be after Meghan announced her pregnancy.
So SOMEBODY did have CONCERNS over Archie’s skin colour. Whether it’s Prince Charles or not recollections are NOT varying. Harry and Meghan Markle didn’t lie

Page Six reported that after Meghan and Harry announced their engagement in 2017, Charles allegedly asked his wife Camilla, “I wonder what the children will look like?”
Andersen claimed that Camilla was “somewhat taken aback” by the question, and that she replied, “Well, absolutely gorgeous, I’m certain.”

“I mean, what do you think their children’s complexion might be?” Charles reportedly then asked her.
During interview with Oprah, Meghan claimed that there were “concerns and conversations about how dark [her and Harry’s son, Archie’s] skin might be when he was born … Those were conversations that family had with Harry.” Meghan’s father is white, but her mother is a black woman.
In his book, Andersen alleges that a group of high-level palace advisors known as the “Men in Gray” took Charles’ concerns and ran with them after Meghan’s pregnancy was announced.
“The question posed by Charles was being echoed in a less innocent way throughout the halls of Buckingham Palace,” Andersen wrote.
When Harry complained about this to Charles, his father reportedly told him that he was being “overly sensitive about the matter.”
His brother Prince William agreed, saying that while the questions over skin tone were “tactless,” they also were “not a sign of racism within the family.”
Charles Denies Allegations
Charles has denied that any of this ever happened, with his spokesperson saying, “This is fiction and not worth further comment.”
Some folks say it’s only natural to question skin color…
No one knows if/what or how the question of Archie's skin color came about. So if I married a Indian or a Italian. And wondered what coloring of skin or color of hair even eyes then I am a racist against my child? Isn't it natural to wonder what traits from who??

And, some who definitely think he asked about it:
Prince William, the welfare royal with 3 kids (and probably more kids we don't know about yet), is attacking Africa's population again. He definitely asked about Archie's skin color.

Meghan and Harry’s spokesperson declined to comment on the claims made in the book.
A spokesperson for Queen Elizabeth responded to the claims by simply saying, “We don’t comment on books of this kind as to do so risks giving it some form of authority or credibility.”
Meghan and Harry have since stepped down as senior royals and moved to California, where they have signed multi-million dollar deals to create content for Netflix and Spotify. They have also welcomed a second child, a baby girl whom they named Lilibet.
Meanwhile, Charles is first in line for the British throne, and is set to become King upon the death of the Queen.
