Claims Prince Charles Asked About The Skin Color Of Harry And Meghan’s Children Dismissed As ‘Fiction’ By Palace


The palace dismissed as “fiction” claims that Prince Charles was the royal who speculated on the skin color of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s children.

US author Christopher Andersen alleges the prince made the comment on the day Harry and Meghan’s engagement has been announced in November 2017.

Andersen made these statements in his new book Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan.

He wrote that the Prince of Wales had said to the Duchess of Cornwall: ‘I wonder what the children will be like?

When Camilla replied, “Well, absolutely gorgeous I’m sure,” the book claims Charles went on to say, “I mean, what do you think their children’s skin tone might be?” “

In response, a palace source told Royal Sky correspondent Rhiannon Mills: “This is fiction and does not merit further comment. “

Andersen did not accuse Prince Charles of being racist, saying “scheming courtiers” gave him a “turning point,” New York Post page six reported.

Prince Harry and Meghan accused a member of the royal family of racism in claims made during their interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year.

Meghan said that when she was pregnant with Archie, an anonymous member of the royal family raised “concerns and conversations about the color of her skin when she was born”.

Meghan declined to say who made the comments, adding: “I think it would be very damaging to them. “

But the Sussexes later clarified that it was not the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh.

It comes as Charles arrived in Barbados ahead of a historic ceremony that will see the country swearing in its first president and formally end the Queen’s role as head of state.
