Who is behind the statements denounced by Duchess Meghan?


Which royal commented on Archie’s skin color and thus triggered the racism scandal? A royal expert wants to know the answer.

There were serious allegations: In her interview with Oprah Winfrey (67), Duchess Meghan (39) claimed that before the birth of her son Archie (1), concerns about his skin color were expressed in the circle of the Royal Family. “There was talk of how dark our baby’s skin would be,” she confided to the US talk show host and an audience of millions. The wife of Prince Harry (36) did not want to reveal who is said to have made the corresponding statements, as that would be “too harmful” for the person concerned.

The question now remains as to which family member might have made any comments. Royal expert and author Lady Colin Campbell (71), who wrote numerous books about the late Princess Diana (1961-1997), claims in a 38-minute YouTube videoto know the answer.

She claims that none other than Queen’s daughter Princess Anne (70) should have made the statements about Archie’s skin color. Campbell names an “insider from the palace” as the source, whom she does not want to reveal. In the video, the Royal connoisseur also asserts that Princess Anne should not have had any racist motives.

Accordingly, she had “no concerns about Meghan’s skin color”, she was only concerned because of her American culture. Also because of her “lack of respect for the institution”, Princess Anne thought the US actress was an “unsuitable” choice for her nephew even before the wedding. According to Lady Colin Campbell, Harry and Meghan would have got the concerns down the wrong side. “As soon as the slightest hint of culture came up, Harry knew it was about skin color,” claims the author.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex live with Archie in California and no longer work for the British Crown. Their second child, a daughter, should be born in the summer.
