Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been the center of attention on March 7 as they speak to Oprah Winfrey in an interview on a CBS Primetime special. While much of what the duo have already revealed has been shocking, something that stood out was mention of the concerns of some unidentified royal family members over Archie's skin color.

Winfrey didn't stray away from the hard questions during the interview as she asked Harry about the conversation he had, had with his family about his son when his wife was pregnant, specifically of those surrounding the topic of the child's race. "That conversation, I am never going to share. At the time, it was awkward, I was a bit shocked." Harry refused to speak about the questions that were asked during those conversations adding that he isn't "comfortable" sharing that. "But it was right at the beginning. What will the kids look like? That was at the beginning when she wasn't going to get security when my family suggested that she might continue acting (because there wasn't going to be money for her)."

Previously in the interview, Winfrey had also asked Meghan why she thought that the royal family didn't want to give her son a title or security. Meghan replied that race was a point, adding, "concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he was born." The conversations of this nature were had with Harry and Meghan found out after but didn't reveal who had been part of those conversations - "that would be very damaging to them," she said. As for what happened between the family and the couple, Harry said, "I know and I'm comfortable in knowing that we did everything we could to make it work."

Speaking about his relationship with his father, Prince Charles, Harry said, "I feel really let down because he's been through something similar and he knows what pain feels like and Archie's his grandson. But at the same time, of course, I will always love him but there's a lot of hurt that's happened and I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship. But they only know what they know — and that's the thing. I've tried to … I've tried to educate them through the process that they've been educated."

Since the former royals didn't mention the names of the people that had been part of the conversation when it came to Archie's race, rumors of who might have asked the question spread on Twitter. Names like Prince William and Prince Philip also did the rounds. "I feel like charles is the person who asked the race-based question.... either him or Camilla. #OprahMeghanHarry," said one user. Another added, "So Camilla, Prince Charles’ mistress was allowed in the family but they’re upset about a grandson that’s a quarter black tainting the family tree? Queen Elizabeth and her husband are related but you’re worried about Archie? The math ain’t matching #OprahMeghanHarry". Another said: "Well in terms of the race comment, it was most likely charles. as for the decision to cut harry off, that’d be the institution. meghan said she can pick up the phone and call elizabeth any time and that she’s always been supportive, so it appears the queen isn’t the issue." "I have a strong feeling that either Charles or the horse faced ho he married brought up unborn Archie’s skin tone. What loving father refuses his son’s phone calls ? Glad Harry was able to get away from that train wreck. He’s still pissed though. Don’t blame him!" said another.



 

 



 

 



 

 

 



 

 

People were livid with Camilla and the royal family's way of handling the birth of Archie, with one user adding: "Ok so ... prince Charles doesn’t accept his son Harry’s wife Megan because she’s biracial but somehow he cheated on his wife Diana with Camilla & wanted the public to accept her ?!?#HarryandMeghanonOprah #OprahMeghanHarry," said another user. One said: "I’m not team Markle but as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow that was definitely prince Charles. Old white men are so racists."

Many also brought up Harry's mother, the late Princess Diana, who as reports indicate didn't have the best time while at the palace herself. "THINKING ABOUT HOW MEGHAN SAID SHE CANT IMAGINE WHAT IT WAS LIKE FOR DIANA GOING THROUGH THIS ALONE... MEGHAN HAD HARRY BUT DIANA DIDNT HAVE CHARLES BC HE WAS OFF WITH CAMILLA," tweeted one user. Another user wrote, "It’s ALLLLL Charles and Camilla...they did it to Diana and they were doing the same thing to Meghan #MeghanandHarryonOprah." Yet another added, "Meghan Markle was literally suicidal. “I don’t want to be alive anymore.” They tried to drive her to death the same way they did Princess Diana. Wanted pure misery for her No wonder Harry wasn’t having it! Meghan didn’t trust herself alone. #MeghanAndHarry #HarryandMeghanonOprah"
