Three days after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made explosive claims against the royal family, a source has claimed Prince William is furious over the Sussexes Oprah interview.

During the two hour interview, Meghan Markle told Oprah that there was a conversation in the family about how dark Archie’s skin would be when he was born.

Oprah has since come out to reveal Prince Harry asked her to make it clear that neither his grandmother, the Queen, or his grandfather, Prince Philip, were included in that conversation.

Now, a royal source has told The Sun, that Prince William is ‘livid’ over the claims.

“William and his father have long spoken about racism and mental health. For them to be accused of being racist is deeply upsetting and wrong,” the source said.

“William is also concerned at the idea of Kate being dragged into this wholly unnecessarily.”

The source also claimed that Prince Charles is upset over the bombshell interview, as he is “proud of the diversity” in the UK.

“He wholeheartedly believes that our country owes a huge debt of gratitude to the rich diversity of cultures that make up our society and going forward is at the heart of what we can be as a nation,” they said.

Royal insider Katie Nicholl also wrote in a column for Vanity Fair that Prince Charles has been left gobsmacked over the interview.

“As Vanity Fair reported on Sunday, Harry was emailing his father to justify why he and Meghan had done the interview,” she wrote.

“Charles was said to be ‘in a state of despair’ according to a friend.”

During the interview, Prince Harry spoke about his relationship with both his father and his brother, Prince William, saying 'there’s a lot of hurt that’s happened' between him and Prince Charles.

Prince Harry said that his father refused to take his calls in the midst of the ‘Megxit’ drama.

Prince Harry also said that he and Prince William’s relationship needs ‘space’ at the moment, but stressed that he will always love his brother.

"I love William to bits, he’s my brother, we’ve been through hell together, we have a shared experience, but we were on different paths.”

"The relationship is space at the moment. And time heals all things, hopefully.”
