A newly released interview between Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has rocked the British Monarchy to its core.

In the interview, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex dropped some major bombshells, including side conversations about the darkness of their son Archie’s skin.

“There were concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he was born,” she said. “That was relayed to me from Harry. Those were conversations that family had with him.”
Meghan refused to reveal the source because “that would be very damaging to them,” she said.
Prince Harry was quick to come to his wife’s defense and confirmed her allegations and concerns.
“One of the most telling parts and the saddest parts, I guess, was over 70 female members of Parliament, both Conservative and Labour, came out and called out the colonial undertones of articles and headlines written about Meghan. Yet no one from my family ever said anything. That hurts,” Harry shared.
“It takes living in her shoes, in this instance, for a day or those first eight days to see where it was going to go and how far they were going to take it, and get away with it,” he said of the British media’s coverage of the Duchess, adding that he hadn’t been aware of that element of the media until he met Meghan.

The Queen’s PR team made an unsuccessful attempt at damage control through a public speaking engagement by the UK’s Minister for Children, Vicky Ford.

“I haven’t seen the full interview so I will not comment on it, but just to reaffirm, there is absolutely no place for racism in our society. And we all need to work together to make sure that doesn’t happen,” said Ford.

There hasn’t been this much drama across the pond since Princess Diana, who also called out the royals for their need to dictate her every move.

It’s surprising that any hints of racism is coming from “The Royals,” who are descendants of Queen Sophie Charlotte who was Black.

Seems like there are deeper-rooted issues here that they aren’t touching on. Maybe we should get Iyanla a seat at the Queen’s table.
