Prince Philip, Queen, Charles? Twitter is Trying to Guess British Royal Who Made Racist Comments

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's recent interview has been causing shock waves across the world for the revelations it exposed.

In the interview, Markle has a no-holds-barrier approach and touches on topics from race to mental health. The two-hour interview is the biggest royal tell-all since Harry’s mother Princess Diana detailed her crumbling marriage to his father Prince Charles in 1995.

One particular angle of the interview, in particular, stood out to everyone - the obsession with Archie's skin colour.

Markle accused the British Royal Family of fretting over how dark her son’s skin would be. Markle, who is African American, says her husband Prince Harry revealed his family’s concerns over Archie’s skin tone, as well as the security he would be entitled to, ahead of his birth on May 6, 2019.

“In those months when I was pregnant… we have in tandem the conversation of ‘he won’t be given security, he’s not going to be given a title’ and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born,” Meghan told interviewer Oprah Winfrey.

After her revelation, Twitter is trying to guess which member of the royal family made the comments about Archie's skin colour.

But some weren't all too surprised.

However, neither the Queen nor her husband Prince Philip were part of conversations expressing concern over how dark the skin of their great-grandson, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son Archie, would be, Oprah Winfrey confirmed later.

Harry would not reveal who had raised the concerns, Winfrey told CBS on Monday, but “he wanted to make sure that I knew and if I had an opportunity to share it that it was not his grandmother nor his grandfather that were a part of those conversations.”

The allegation was potentially one of the most damaging from a two-hour interview in which Meghan also said she had been denied help during a mental health crisis, speaking frankly of her suicidal thoughts while pregnant with Archie.
