Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey aired on Sunday, March 7, and she revealed a lot.
The Duchess of Sussex disclosed during her interview with Oprah Winfrey that the royal family expressed concerns about Baby Archie’s skin color.
Meghan revealed that “concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born” were brought up to her husband ahead of her son’s birth.
Meghan claimed the Royal Family did not want her son to be a prince or offer him security.
Asked why by Winfrey, she said it had to do with how dark his skin might be when he’s born.
Winfrey asked if her son being “too brown” would be a problem, to which Meghan replied: “If that is the assumption you are making, that is a pretty safe one”.
Oprah was shocked and asked Meghan who raised these questions but she refused to say because it would be “very damaging to them”.
Meghan added: “That was relayed to me from Harry, those were conversations the family had with him, and I think it was really hard to be able to see those as compartmentalised conversations.”
Harry also said it “hurt” that his family did not speak out against articles “with colonial undertones” written about his wife.
