The mystery behind who who asked about baby Archie’s skin tone may now be solved.
Christopher Anderson claims in a new book, “Brothers and Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan,” that on the day Meghan and Harry announced their engagement, Prince Charles wondered out loud to his wife Camilla “what the children will look like?”
Anderson says Camilla was caught off guard and responded, “Well, absolutely gorgeous, I’m certain.” Charles allegedly wasn’t satisfied with the response, and shot back, “I mean, what do you think their children’s complexion might be?”
A Palace spokesperson told The NY Post, “This is fiction and not worth further comment.”
You recall during Harry and Meghan’s explosive sit down with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan said there were “concerns and conversations” regarding the skin tone of Archie, who had not yet been born. The conversations were allegedly between Harry and at least one Royal.
You also recall Harry declined to say who it was … perhaps because it was his father and he didn’t want to expose him.
Andersen stops short of insinuating that Charles questioning was malicious. In fact he presents the matter as if Charles’ curiosity was seized upon and twisted by scheming courtiers who gave it a racist spin. According to Andersen, by the time the recycled account was heard by Harry and Meghan, it had reached toxic proportions.
The question posed by Charles was being echoed in a less innocent way throughout the halls of Buckingham Palace,” Andersen writes, describing the whispers of an elitist clique whom the Brits term “the old boys’ network.”
The book also reveals Harry’s frustration after he complained to Charles, who, according to another insider, told the prince he was being “overly sensitive about the matter.”
