Harry and Meghan were set to reveal which royal made the racist remarks before his son Archie was born, but made the decision not to because it would have been too ‘damaging’.

In the updated edition of the biography Find freedom, authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand allege the couple considered “sharing this detail” about the anonymous royal who asked “how dark their unborn child would be,” the Daily Mail reported.

Meghan, however, shut it down, telling Oprah: “I think it would be very damaging to them. “

Instead, when Winfrey asked if they would exhibit the royal, Harry said, “This conversation, I’ll never share it, but at the time, it was awkward; I was a little shocked. “

He clarified that it was neither Queen Elizabeth nor Prince Philip.

Meghan’s No.1 foe Piers Morgan called the couple “shameless weasels” and said they should “name the alleged racist royal and let them answer. Otherwise, you keep messing up the whole family.

The updated edition, which is expected to be released next week, also alleges that some members of the royal family were “quietly happy” that Meghan missed Prince Philip’s funeral in April because they feared her appearance would “” create a show ”.

Harry could have used his wife’s support, however. He and his father, Prince Charles, were only on “light terms” at the funeral, according to the book.

“As brief as their conversations were, they were a step forward in a necessary healing process for the couple,” said one insider.

Even though their infamous interview with Oprah was damaging to the royal family, the book details that Meghan found it “cathartic” and “liberating.”
