Meghan Markle has claimed that the Royal Family refused to make her son Archie a Prince over concerns about his skin colour.
“You certainly must have had some conversations with Harry about it and had your own suspicions as to why they didn’t want to make Archie a prince,” said Oprah.
She then asked: “Why do you think that is?”
Meghan Markle responded: “They didn’t want him to be a prince… which would be different from protocol, and that he wasn’t going to receive security.”
Shocked, Oprah told the Duchess to ‘hold up’ as she processed what she was saying.
She then asked: “There’s a conversation with you about how dark your baby is going to be?”
Meghan replied: “Potentially and what that would mean and look like.”
When Harry, 36, married Meghan, 39, in May 2018, the Queen made them the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
That meant their first child, Archie, would be entitled to the ‘courtesy title’ of Earl of Dumbarton. However, shortly after he was born, the couple announced that he’d not been given the title and he would simply be known as Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
Despite this, the youngster is seventh in the line of succession to the British throne.
