The couple made headlines around the world in March when they suggested that a senior member of the Royal Family asked what the color of Archie’s skin would be.
Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan, a book by author Christopher Andersen, has now claimed Charles, 73, is the royal.
A spokesperson for the Prince of Wales strongly denied the claims, saying: ‘This is fiction and does not merit further comment. “
The book claims Charles wondered what his grandson’s complexion might look like during a conversation with his wife Camilla over breakfast.
The alleged discussion would have taken place on the morning that Harry and Meghan’s engagement was officially announced, November 27, 2017, the book says.
A source told the royal author that Charles allegedly told Camilla: “I wonder what the children will be like. “
The book claims that she was “a little taken aback” by the comment and replied, “Well, absolutely beautiful, I’m sure. “
The insider also claimed that Charles then lowered his voice and asked, “I mean, what do you think their children’s skin tone might be?” “
Andersen wrote that “scheming courtiers” then gave Charles’ alleged words “a racist twist”.
A report from Page Six claimed the alleged conversation had then ‘reached toxic proportions’ by the time Harry and Meghan were briefed.
Charles, according to The Sun, is calling lawyers about the allegations in the book.

An insider told The Sun: “The claims are absolutely ridiculous.
“There is more to fear that commenting on this will simply sell more books than damage Charles’ reputation. “
Buckingham Palace said last night: ‘We don’t comment on books like this because it might give it some form of authority or credibility. “
After the interview with Oprah in March, Harry agreed and said he would “never share” all of the details of the discussion.
Oprah later revealed that it was not the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh who made the comment, telling CBS This Morning: “He didn’t share the identity with me but he wanted to make sure that I know, and if I had the opportunity to share it, that it was not his grandmother or grandfather who were part of these conversations. “
