Truth about Meghan and Harry skin colour comment and when it happened


According to a royal expert, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s skin color allegations about the Royal Family occurred before their marriage and had nothing to do with Archie.

The issue of Archie’s royal title has been connected to the Sussexes’ racist allegations against the Royal Family.

Harry and Meghan have not specified who made the alleged remarks regarding Archie’s skin color, but they have said that it was neither the Queen or Prince Philip.

However, although Meghan stated in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that the racial problem arose when she was pregnant, royal biographer Robert Lacey disputes this.

Lacey deconstructs the Sussexes’ TV interview in forensic detail in his new book.

Robert Lacey writes: “When questioned by Oprah, Meghan admitted that no one in the Royal Family had ever asked her personally about the colour of Archie’s skin – neither then, when she was pregnant, nor at any time.


“When Oprah later put it to him [Harry] directly, he almost shrugged his shoulders. Pushed for details, he admitted: ‘That was right at the beginning…right at the beginning.’

“The skin colour conversation, as Harry described it, had actually taken place before the couple had even got engaged, at quite an early stage of their relationship – and it had been in general terms.

“The question had not been asked specifically about Archie, but about any babies that Harry and Meghan might possibly produce. ‘Yeah,’ said Harry, repeating the question that some unnamed person had put to him years earlier – ‘What will the kids look like?’.

“Nobody had had ‘conversations’ with Meghan about Archie while she was pregnant, nor asked her ‘how dark his skin might be when he is born’.

“The problem lay in Meghan’s having linked the question of her son’s skin tone to the question of his royal status.”

“We are very much not a racist family.” Prince William said when the allegations surfaced.

There are conflicting accounts as to when the purported skin color discussion occurred.

When it comes to Archie’s title, Lacey believes he will be free to choose whether or not he wants to be a prince when he becomes 18.

“It is possible that Prince Charles may try to remove royal status from the Sussex children when he comes to the throne but that does not seem likely,” he told The Times.
