Prince Charles wants ya’ll to know he’s cool with black folks.
Just a few days after his son Prince Harry and daughter in-law Meghan Markle claimed someone in the royal family had concerns about their son Archie’s skin tone, Prince Charles was spotted at a vaccination site in London organized by the Black church.
Clarence House, the official Instagram account about the life, work and activities of The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, even posted a number of photos showing Charles at Jesus House. In all of the pictures you see him with both workers and visitors … all of whom are Black.
Of course Buckingham Palace is denying this visit is just about optics, and claims Charles was scheduled to visit over a week ago. Interestingly Charles’ last visit to Jesus House was in 2007 (as mentioned in the caption) to celebrate the community work of Black Majority Churches.

During his appearance he did not address the controversy surrounding the family but did discuss the impact of the pandemic on Britain’s Black community.
“We are all immensely proud of the role Black majority churches play and it is of course a profound sorrow to me to know that Black communities have been hit particularly hard by this pernicious virus,” he said. “I can only wish you every possible success as you promote and facilitate the take up of this essential vaccine that is so utterly vital to our community.”
According to Vanity Fair, the future king did not watch the Oprah interview does not intend to.
Meanwhile Buckingham Palace released a statement addressing claims made by Harry and Meghan during their explosive sit-down with Oprah Winfrey. Basically the Queen is saddened by the claims but didn’t deny them and says they will handle it privately.
