Megan Markle and Prince Harry made accusations of racism against the Palace in their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Megan Markle accused the royal family of having concerns when she was pregnant about “how dark Archie’s skin would be” when she was born because she is a mix and Harry white. The Duchess of Sussex also expressed her pain because the authorities denied her son the title of prince and accused the Palace of not offering them security 24 hours a day.
The accusations of racism
Megan declined to name which member of the royal family was the one who commented on her son’s possible skin color, arguing that it would be detrimental to the person in her husband’s family who raised him. The Duchess of Sussex told Winfrey it was a “safe enough” case to suggest that the royal family member was worried that if Archie was “too brown” it would be a problem. “This is what Harry told me, these conversations he had with his family,” he said. However, when asked how important it would be for her son to have the title of prince, she said she was not interested in the grandeur of the official titles: “But it was the idea that our son was not safe, and also the idea of the first colored member of the family who would not receive a title like the other grandchildren “.
Prince Harry, who appeared in the last part of the interview, described the conversation as “strange”, saying it shocked him. But he declined to comment further: “It’s the talk I will never share.”
However, what was pointed out was the contradiction in the couple’s statements as Megan, revealing the racist discussion, said “concerns and discussions about how dark the baby’s skin will be when it was born” were expressed during the months “when I was pregnant with Archie” . But later Prince Harry said that this discussion where the racist comment seems to have been made took place even before his wedding to Megan, in May 2018.
Statements about a member of the royal family expressing racist views about Archie’s skin color naturally raised much speculation about his identity, with most believing that he was the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip.
Today, Monday, however, Oprah Winfrey’s intervention was needed, who clarified that this is neither the queen nor her husband Prince Philip, as the prince confessed to her behind the scenes that his grandparents did not say such a thing.
Because Archie is not a prince
It is recalled that the fact that Archie does not have the title of prince, concerns the order of birth and the title of his father and the grandfather of Prince Carlos. From the first moment it was known that she would not have a title, something that Megan attributed to the racism that her family accepted.
However, according to an order issued in 1917 by Queen Elizabeth’s grandfather, King George V, it was established that only the title of prince or princess could be given to anyone in direct succession and called Him or His Highness (HRH). According to the order: “… the grandchildren of the sons of any monarch in direct succession (except the eldest son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales) will have and will in any case enjoy the style and title enjoyed by the children of the Dukes of these kingdoms “, which means that only the eldest son of William and Kate, Prince George, can be called a prince. The queen intervened in 2013 and issued a correct repetition of her grandfather’s order with which all the children of the future King William and George’s brothers will receive the title. According to the orders of George V, Archie will receive the title of prince only if his grandfather Charles is crowned king. The daughters of Prince Andrew, Charles’s brother, Princesses Eugenia and Beatrice have titles because their grandmother is queen.
