Is Prince Charles Meghan Markle's 'royal racist'? New book makes SHOCKING allegation
A new book titled 'Brothers and Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Harry and Meghan' drops on November 30. Author Christopher Andersen had also penned 'Diana's Boys' which was about the bond the princes shared as teenagers and how it strengthened after the untimely death of their mother. The new book picks up from there and explores the last two decades in the lives of the Princes and the "evolution of their relationship as adults, with one brother the designated heir, and the other doomed to life as the spare." Andersen also is said to have delved deeper into the impact the princes' wives Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have had on their spouses and each other. The book also claims Prince Charles is the one who was concerned if Harry and Markle's kids would be light or dark-skinned.
Back in March, the Sussexes gave a bombshell interview to Oprah Winfrey where Markle revealed there was a skin color bias in the palace. She said there were unidentified royals who raised concerns and had conversations about Archie's complexion while she was pregnant with him. Markle said the comments were made in front of Harry who then relayed it to her. When asked to reveal the identity of the person who made the comments, she said, "I think that would be very damaging to them." Earlier in the interview, Oprah then turned to Harry to ask if the royals had any conversations about the race of his future kids to which he declined to comment saying, "I'm not comfortable with sharing that."

Is Prince Charles the 'racist royal'?
Andersen's book quotes a source who levels a bombshell accusation against Prince Charles. They claim the Prince of Wales asked his wife Camilla on the morning of Harry and Markle's engagement in 2017, "I wonder what the children will look like?" The source further adds Camilla was "somewhat taken aback" by what she heard and quickly responded with "Well, absolutely gorgeous, I'm certain," Page Six claims. Prince Charles reportedly further asked, "I mean what do you think their children's complexion might be?" A spokesperson for the royal has debunked these claims as fictional. The outlet was told, "This is fiction and not worth further comment."
Andersen doesn't claim that Charles is the one unnamed 'royal racist' Markle spoke about to Oprah. The author alleges that the Prince of Wales was just asking an innocent question which was blown out of proportion by a group of courtiers known as the 'Men in Grey' who were pleased by putting a racist spin on the matter. The book also claims Harry was told he was being "overly sensitive" when he sought clarification from his father regarding his comment which Prince William said was "tactless" but "not a sign of racism".
