Duchess Camilla is said to have made racist statements
Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry hinted during their interview with Oprah that members of the British royal family had made racist remarks towards them. According to a royal expert, Duchess Camilla is said to have been one of these people.
Duchess Meghan, 40, and Prince Harry, 37, made shocking statements about the British royal family during their interview with Oprah Winfrey, 68, in March 2021. When the Duchess of Sussex was pregnant with Archie, 3, there were discussions within the royal family about “how dark his skin could be,” says Meghan.
Other racist statements are also said to have been made: at the beginning of Harry and Meghan’s relationship, a family member speculated about “what their future child would look like”. That should have been Duchess Camilla, 75, claims investigative journalist Tom Bower in his disclosure book.
Duchess Meghan: Has Duchess Camilla made racist remarks about Archie?
In his new book Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors, Tom Bower writes that Prince Harry spoke to his family about his budding love for Meghan in 2016. At this point, the media had already speculated about the relationship between the royal and the then “Suits” actress. So Harry met his father Prince Charles, 73, for advice on how to deal with the situation.
Camilla is said to have been present at these talks, which are said to have taken place at Clarence House. “Wouldn’t it be funny if your child had a red-haired afro?” the 75-year-old is said to have said. At first, Harry is said to have “laughed” at the remark, but Meghan’s reaction to the statement “turned Harry’s amusement into anger”. However, sources close to Camilla dismissed the claim as “nonsense,” The Mirror reports.
