The British Royal Family is currently deliberating their response amidst a growing controversy surrounding allegations of racism. This issue has gained renewed attention following comments made by Piers Morgan on UK television, referring to the content of royal biographer Omid Scobie’s latest book, “Endgame.”
In his book, Scobie elaborates on previous claims made by Meghan Markle regarding concerns within the Royal Family about the skin color of her and Prince Harry’s son, Archie, prior to his birth.
According to Scobie, Meghan Markle disclosed the names of the alleged ‘racist royals’ in a private letter to King Charles, and this information appears to have been leaked. While there was speculation that Markle herself might have been behind the leak as a form of retribution against the Royal Family, a source close to her has firmly denied her involvement.
A Palace insider, speaking to the Mirror, revealed that the Royal Family is in “utter dismay” over the recent developments. The source indicated that the royals are exploring various options, including the possibility of legal action against those responsible for perpetuating the controversy.
The origins of this issue date back to a 2021 interview Meghan Markle had with Oprah Winfrey, where she first brought up the Royal Family’s concerns about “how dark” Archie’s skin might be. The Palace responded to these claims with a statement expressing regret over the difficulties Harry and Meghan faced in the past few years.
The statement acknowledged the seriousness of the issues related to race brought up by Meghan and noted that while “recollections may vary,” the matters would be addressed privately by the family. The statement also reaffirmed Harry, Meghan, and Archie’s status as beloved family members.
This ongoing saga highlights the complex dynamics within the Royal Family and the sensitive nature of the issues at hand, particularly those pertaining to race and privacy. As the story continues to unfold, the Royal Family’s next steps remain a subject of significant public interest and speculation.
